2022 Tactical Class Scheduling
I have put up initial scheduling for the latter part of 2022. You can view the events here:

The classes scheduled include HEAT 1 Combat Tactics, HEAT 2 Combat Patrol and Squad Tactics (Force on Force). There are other classes for 2022 that I have not yet scheduled. These include CQB, Recon, DCH. We can look to filling in the blanks as we go forward.

The HEAT 1 Combat Tactics Class in March, I only have 6 bookings so far. So that is the crocodile closest to the boat.

I would like to get some input on CQB, Recon and DCH. I know these have been discussed in the relevant threads, but we can now discuss in the light of the currently scheduled classes. Also, if you think I have screwed up with current scheduling, let me know.

The place to give me input on classes is on the MVT Forum, in the Student Class Scheduling forum. Note: if you are not currently a member and join the forum, I have to approve you, so there will be a slight delay if you don’t get immediate access.

Note: The newly scheduled classes (August to December 2022) are not bookable online, at least for now. Please write to me if you want a spot.

Note: There are no classes in June / July as we wait for plans to consolidate (family plans). This may change and there is also space there for classes run by Scott.

Protect yourself. Protect your family.

If you want the lightest, thinnest and most effective ballistic plates, buy ShotStop. You are paying for quality, lightness and effectiveness, with a 15 year warranty.

Don’t trust your instinct to buy cheap. Realize the importance of stopping penetrating trauma to the torso for your survivability, ability to fight back, and win.

For example, the GT2 plates by ShotStop are an amazing balance of protection level against light weight and thinness. The plates have been designed as a “Special Threat” capability. These plates will stop the standard rounds stopped by a Level 3 plate, but in addition they will also stop multi-hit impacts from:

  • M855 / SS109 ‘Green Tip.”
  • M193
  • M855 A1
  • 7.62 x 39
  • .308 / 7.62

GT2: Weighing only 3.8lb and 0.6″ thick for the 10×12!

This plate will stop all threats except the M2 AP round. In terms of a sensible risk assessment, you can wear these GT2 plates at 3.8lb each, and stop all threats except the M2 AP round. That is an excellent trade off between mobility versus protection. Everything we do in tactical world is always a calculated risk – these plates balance very well the tradeoff between mobility and protection.

Introducing the Duritium IV+HA Advanced Body Armor Plates! These plates will stop the M2 AP round! At 4.5lb and 0.9′ thick for the 10×12, these plates will give you ‘boiler-plate’ protection from all threats!

Level IV HA: Weighing only 4.5lb and 0.9″ thick for the 10×12!

The Green Tip (M855) round is one of the most common rounds purchased. And most plates will not stop it. The M193 is also very common, and is kryptonite to steel plates. The GT2 and HA plates will stop the M193, M855 & M855A1.

Paying the cost for lightweight and highly maneuverable ShotStop plates is easier than trying to survive and treat penetrating trauma to the torso / thoracic cavity, would you not agree?

A set of these plates is in my plate carrier.
