This interview was definitely a good time because it was like two Marine Corps grunts catching up. Daniel Shaw is a very dynamic fire arms trainer in our industry who also has a very inspirational and motivational way of looking at life. This interview contributes in a number of different ways by speaking at length about firearms and combat principles while also touching on a number of different life principles that have not only help myself and Daniel but that I believe will be helpful to everyone listening to this episode is well. As we all know by now, what truly makes a good protector is much more than simply hardware and that is why I believe this interview is definitely worth your time.
