Question for Jared: Do you think that  hands on skills are more important for a citizen than firearms training?
Jordan P. Snow
I watched your interview on the Warrior Poet Society channel with John Lovell and was floored to hear your story: 1. Where do you go to get your giant balls of steel polished? You, sir, are an inspiration. 2. Who are the men you look to for inspiration? 3. What drives you to push not only yourself but others?  4. After the event, provided you don't mind sharing, did you seek any help for the psychological trauma of such a devastating experience? As a great guy who was put in a terrible, extraordinary circumstances, could you share with us that road back? I think hearing about this could be beneficial to everyday carriers.

We often hear that mindset plays a huge role in survival rates, but how much emphasis should be placed in combining mindset with physical conditioning?
