Dave "Boon" Benton and Bill Orndorf on Vehicle Defense Concepts for Civilians and LEO

David and Mark are excited to bring you this conversation with Dave "Boon" Benton and Bill Orndorf about Vehicle Defense concepts for both civilians and Law Enforcement Officers.  Commonly called VCQB, which is perhaps a misnomer, this episode explores the art of fighting from within and around a vehicle and how it's more relevant to your life than you might think.
