    Larry David hosted SNL earlier this year, probably the best episode of the season so far.  This gem was among many of the hilarious sketches, set in Quantico, VA at a FBI Simulator Training Facility.  We ate it up here at the TD headquarters...anything mixing humor & the tactical world, we are game for.  Our in house designer came up with this meme based on the classic vintage "bad guy" shooting target, he nailed it!  Enjoy...  http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/fbi-simulator/2981467 Now you, too, can start slinging these lines around the office! Maybe the next time someone brings donuts into the office or what have you...  "I'm coolest bitch in town!" "I'm high on bath salts!" "...head scratchers...wild cards..." "...just got to second base...with a laaadyyy."

  • Outcome vs Performance Training and Goals

    0 comments / By TD Blog Contributor | Posted

    In this article I’m going to approach a topic that crossed the boundaries of all training or goal setting.  It’s a topic that I’ve struggled with as an instructor in the Army as most of the Army’s training is centered on outcome based training and you’ll see that I prefer the performance-oriented side of the house.  Pictured Above, Contributor Chad Ray. So what is “outcome based training”?  Simply put, it’s when you focus on the end goal.  For example, you may want to achieve expert by getting 38 out of 40 hits on the Army rifle marksmanship qualification.  Another example may be that you want to be able to do 50 pushups.   Now for “performance based training”.  In performance based training you can still have an...

  • The Making of the Carlos Ray Tactical Pant

    0 comments / By Todd Askins | Posted

    TD has been selling gear for around 10 years. During this time we have seen a void in the tactical pants category. Our answer was the Carlos Ray pant.  The Carlos Ray pants have been evolving for over 3 years. Each evolution we have taken user feedback & our personal T&E back into the design room. This helps us in making & adjusting features to enhance the users experience. We feel that the TD Apparel line offers the customer great gear at a reasonable price.  Where did the name come from? This is a common question that only a few people get. We wanted to add some humor to a serious pant. If you Google Carlos Ray you will find  a photo of 80's icon "Chuck Norris".  Development team: Frankie Collins...

  • RVCA VA Sport - A Balance of Opponents, Made for Athletes.

    1 comment / By Todd Askins | Posted

    RVCA is a clothing company that is based in southern California.  Even if you don’t recognize RVCA by their name, you probably will recognize them by their company’s logo.  The letter ‘A’ in the RVCA is portrayed without a crossbar, while the V sometimes is shaped like a U.  Starting to ring a bell now?              Founded by Pat Tenore and Conan Hayes, who are professional surfers, RVCA is very closely associated with the surfing and skateboard culture and communities.  The company regularly serves as a sponsor for surfing and skateboard teams across the country.  As a result of this, it should come as no surprise that RVCA clothing can be found in both skateboard and surfing shops from all across the world.  But as...
