Drew is a good old fashioned American man. He’s a father, he’s a husband, he’s an athlete and he’s a protector. He is a protector who genuinely values empowering other protectors with a very specific skill set that they can leverage against the enemy in order to win battles. Drew has belonged to some very special units in the United States Army and has deployed overseas to combat zones but what drew me to him initially is the same thing that I believe has drawn many people towards his brand. He has a drill that has to deal with manipulating your weapon and engaging targets with a high level of accuracy while being “cold and on-demand.”

When I first heard about this drill, it touched me deep in my warrior spirit because I honestly can’t even count the number of times I’ve gotten to ranges and thought to myself, “well we warmed up for our shooting day… In real life, we won’t have the privilege of getting hot before we start keeping score.” Naturally it’s safest to warm up when you get to the range depending on the level of proficiency of your shooters and even then it’s not a bad idea but this drill takes a real-world approach to understanding a shooter’s ability somewhere closer to the ways he will have to perform Outside of the range when lives are in the balance. I knew that a drill like this could only come from a genuine, practical and experienced mind and this is why I sought Drew out for this interview. Time flew by and we ended up going deep, there’s so much here, ENJOY!
