097 The Early Days of the Officer Survival Movement

DENNIS ANDERSON AND THE DAWN OF THE OFFICER SURVIVAL MOVEMENT

Denny Anderson was “in at the beginning” of the Officer Survival training movement in the early 1970s, which in turn was the seedbed for much of what is now doctrine for law-abiding armed citizens.  Joining with Chuck Remsberg, Tom McTernan, and Ron Adams, he co-wrote the timeless “Street Survival” book, and he and Remsberg created the Caliber Press Street Survival Seminars which still exist today.

Go back to the roots as Denny tells us how things were then…and how much they’ve changed for the better since.
