🎉 🎈 🎊 CONGRATULATIONS are in order to this hot piece of manliness!
Derek came out of retirement and competed in his first @thetacticalgames this last weekend in Texas and ended up taking 3rd place in the intermediate division!!
I can honestly say that I’m more proud of him for taking 3rd here than I felt when he would take 1st at a Crossfit comp, and here’s why:
•He had to fight REALLY hard for this 3rd place. These guys were no joke, and the guys who took 1st and 2nd 100% deserved it
•Sure Derek was in the military, but that’s NOT where he learned how to shoot. He dedicated himself to learning pistol on his own, and invested in courses that built his foundation. Rifle however? He has never taken any classes for Rifle and has only gone to the range a handful of times in 2 years
•He got into a fitness slump the past few years and only started back up on his regular training 2 months ago, most of which did NOT include high intensity cardio. This weekend had a lot of that and I watched him go to his pain cave
We’re all very proud of you @pixel_and_projectile. You pour yourself into us on a weekly basis as our coach, so I’m glad you had this weekend to do your thing!
Awesome shot from @rn4_an4kin of the Crye Precision Adaptive Vest System. The AVS can be quickly configured from a low-vis chest rig to a fully armored load-bearing vest, and everything in between. Change calibers and loadouts by switching front flaps or quickly sliding off modular AVS Pouches without unweaving them. Attach packs, zip-on rear panels and many other accessories - the options are infinite. In stock now for most components as well the AVS Belt!
