Marine Corporal Kevin XuMarine Cpl. Kevin Xu: “One of the worst battles occurred on June 13, 2010. It was my first time getting shot at, and it was a complex ambush.  The fire fight lasted 4 hours and was considered a victory; however, four were wounded.  My training with the Perpetrator was very similar to my combat experience which I rate as an 8 out of 10, in comparison to my real combat experience.”

“I am sincerely impressed by the product/training device you guys have put together.  From a training/psychology standpoint, it is a brilliant concept. And you can quote me on that!”

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman:  Former West Point Psychology Professor, Professor of Military Science & Army Ranger

“Everybody has a plan…until they get hit.  I consider myself a novice at firearms, but I’m a quick study and a good shot, regularly making 1.25” groups at 21′ out of my subcompact, shooting a stationary target under stress free conditions.  However the “Perpetrator” is not stationary, and OUF’s training adds a more realistic tactical scenario.  My groupings looked nothing like the way they do at the range.  I give Officer Under Fire’s course a big thumbs up. The 3 instructors were extremely patient, helpful, and had no egos. 2 were LEO’s, 2 were military with one being in special forces and the other had combat experience in Afghanistan. All 3 had no problem answering the multitude of basic questions that I hammered them with.  I’ll be adding regular classes with OUF to my training.  This is too much fun.”     Arnel Castillo, Mortgage Banker, 3-26-14

“It was an adrenaline rush. I would highly recommend officer under fire training course to any of my friends or family. Dan and his team did an extraordinary job taking some average civilians and teaching them the basic skills on how to shoot under fire. I can’t say enough good things about the course and I look forward to his next class . Thanks again Dan, kind regards.”     -CJ Malchow, Graphic Artist, 3-27-14

“I had an absolute great time when I went. I have taken many different types of tactical pistol training classes, but to have a target that shoots back at you, moves and tracks your ‘hits on target’ is a new level of live fire type scenarios. I felt safe, being shadowed by a SWAT trainer, and the instructions and instructors were very passionate about the training and my personal safety and training. I will be attending the next session, and see how far I can push myself. Hope to see some of you out there.”     Jeff J, 5-25-14

“Daniel [of Officer Under Fire] was a presenter at the International Association of Law Enforcement Trainers in April of 2010. He taught a firearms course on responding to incoming rounds.  Daniel presented his invention, a remote controlled target. The target presents the shooter with additional stress because it returns fire using an paintball-type munition.  As a sergeant in charge training for a medium-sized police department, I think there is great value this tool.  Anytime training can induce stress, the retention of the training will be increased.”

[Officer Under Fire] is passionate about keeping his fellow police officers safe on the street. His Officer Under Fire Perpetrator is an ingenious answer to the need for realistic police firearms training. It is destined to save lives.”
