Product Review: Waxed Cotton Fire Starters

The Defensive Training Group

“This is Alex View, this recording is taken at 9:32 on February 14th 2018,” Hogg says. “Alex, are you ok with me recording this?”

“Yes, I am ok with you recording this,” Alex responds.

“I personally have rallied for gun rights and less control, not necessarily less control but this experience has definitely changed my viewpoint,” she says.

What experience? The shooting drill, or the actual shooting that hasn’t happened yet?

“I wanted to be a junior NRA member, I wanted to…
