Shooting Background: Lifelong hunter and sport shooter. I have attended numerous shooting schools including Thunder Ranch, Professional Marksmen, and those offered by Barrett and McMillan.Why We Want to Compete in the Survival Trial
Jason: I was a last minute substitution in 2011 after previously passing on the event. Experiencing the physical and mental challenges of the Survival Trial taught me so much last year. I hope to apply those lessons this year and deliver an even better showing.
Guy: I am competing again in the 2012 Survival Trial because I didn't have enough of the crap kicked out of me in 2011; at least my friends seem to think I am still full of it.
Other pertinent information that we feel would be helpful for potential sponsors to know about us:
343 of FDNY's finest died on September 11, 2001 leading us into over a decade of sustained warfare. It is an honor to be able to give back to those who have defended America's freedom by giving it their all.
