August 2023 Training Updates

NEW FOR 2023

When attending CSAT classes in the future, please have:

• Electronic Ears

• Tourniquet

• Thumb drive

The reasoning behind the Electronic Ears is simple. We want you to hear range commands on the line and during scenarios. Input can be made without shouting.

As for Tourniquets, I watch many a person who have one on their gear, not use it as they don’t want to remove it from the pouch or the plastic. If your tourniquet, is so fragile that it cannot be used for training, you need to buy a different one. You should have training tourniquets as well. If you need one, the Pro Shop will be happy to sell you one.

Finally, bring a thumb drive as it has never been easier and cheaper to collect class information and handouts than at this time in history.


We continue to work on new video content for both the Patreon Operator and Patreon Instructor. As of 1 Jan 2022, we had 170 videos on the site.

You can visit “The CSAT Way” on FaceBook for video updates.


We have put together a “Small Unit Tactics” course for agencies that do not have access to a full Tactical Team. The first class will run in October and will be four days in length. It will cover both overt tactical scenarios and covert tactical scenarios to accomplish todays Law Enforcement missions. See the website for a flyer.


Friends and I have watched the French problems in the world and wonder if it could happen in the U.S.

When a country allows in immigrants that do not wish to assimilate with the host countries values, then you will have problems. Especially when they do not want to work and expect the government to support them financially.

France’s government allowed in these types of immigrants and now their police are left to deal with them.

Could this happen in the U.S. Of course. The difference being, we have an armed citizenry of ordinary Americans and Veterans who could stand in their way of rioting.

Democrats started with BLM, moved to Antifa, and now try and mobilize their reserves, the Alphabet Battalions.

They are running out of players and now plan on using immigrants to do their dirty work.

Sorry liberal bitches, I just do not see that happening. All you have done is expose to the majority in America what your freak show is composed of. In the military world, you would be called a confidence target.

You have desensitized any emotions many Americans may have had for any of the groups you push into the fight against common America. We and others like me can see the weak-minded tools that follow the democratic agenda. They are too stupid to breed, and you know what farmers and ranchers do when they have livestock that they do not want to breed, they cull it.

As for the Alphabet Brigades being mobilized and speaking out, you should watch yourselves. Everyone knows and allows your kind if you keep it private in your own home and bedrooms. Forcing your agenda on others, especially on kids, puts you in the Catholic Church category of passive tolerance. The Catholic Church is known as a breeding ground for homosexuality and pedophilia. The Church is too cheap to allow priests to marry as they never wanted to support their families. This has not worked out well for them.

Next, the military has become a political tool and you can see the Officer Corps protecting, pushing and condoning this type of behavior. I put them in the same category as the Catholic Church when the allow politically motived general officers to dictate policy to gain favor or rank with the current political party.

Many think, as long I can get my retirement, I will put up with it. Sorry, that enables and emboldens them.

The only good news is that when a new administration comes in, they can be purged from the ranks to help restore our military to a higher combat effectiveness. These vocal types will have outed themselves and their agendas.

As a soldier, I would refuse to do a counseling with one of these types in a closed-door session. I would require the door to be open or a second soldier present. Why would I go into a room alone, with a mental patient?

From a Friend


Back when I was a member of "The Armed Peace Corps," one of the few good aspects was the ability to travel around the world and 'visit' a number of absolute shxthole countries that I otherwise would not have even considered visiting. All were dirt-poor, incredibly corrupt, naturally beautiful, and generally filled with decent people just trying to survive (except for the odd indig that liked to shoot at us). Pretty much countries that could become something if they could just get their stuff together.

Also, this was my introduction to what a "Banana Republic" really is. So, for some reason, I started remembering Panama from nearly 40 years ago...

Central American countries like Panama are often referred to as “Banana Republics”. The term refers to largely impoverished nations with underdeveloped economies which are controlled by a corrupt ruling class.

I suppose Panama fits the description.

For example, an independent watchdog agency found that the top 100 members of Panama’s legislature increased their net worth by an average 114% PER YEAR over a decade-long period.

I guess these Panamanian politicians are just really good investors and real estate speculators.

Not to be outdone, the spouse of one of Panama’s most prominent and longest serving politicians has become one of the wealthiest people in the country… but claims to have no inside information about critical changes to the country’s laws. Somehow people actually believe them.

Panama’s current president is a truly bizarre human being. He says the most cringe-worthy things, often makes no sense when he speaks, and he refuses to acknowledge the existence of his own 5-year old granddaughter.

He has committed multiple crimes while in office and is widely suspected of receiving bribes from some very unsavory people.

Several members of the Panamanian first family have become expert ‘business consultants’, raking in mountains of cash in exchange for doing absolutely nothing of substance.

Panama’s president also uses government resources to attack political opponents, including censoring dissent and even trying to imprison a key adversary.

The local media here in Panama is a total joke, too. It’s basically a state-sponsored propaganda ministry that is in complete lockstep with the ruling party.

But hey, like I said, Panama is a ‘banana republic’, so you’d expect this sort of thing to take place here.

Except, as many of you have figured out, I’m not actually talking about Panama.

Everything I mentioned above refers to the United States in 2023. While we were all busy working for a living, etc., we've become a "Banana Republic."

We all need to wake up, look around and realize that we are like our grandparents were in the 1930's as they faced the challenges of a Republic, and the threats from Fascists, National Socialists and Communists. The names and symbols may have changed, but the spots on a leopard or the stripes on a tiger never do. It is not too late IF we all wake up, become aware and take back control of our Republic.

Deer Camera at our pond. Beavers, no respect…


Starting to dry, but the mowing continues at a slower pace as we have been without rain.….



Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the range.
