Eh, I haven't heard about anything like this in Oklahoma. I'm sure Texas has something like that. I've seen a documentary on an event like this that was up in Michigan.

 

As far as my thoughts, just depends on the circumstances of training. I personally would like to see the militias here in Oklahoma aim more towards disaster response than trying to fight the government or a foreign invader. I do get the point of the latter, as that's essentially the mission of a militia, but if the ones here did some sort of documentary or story with a local news station about disaster response, search and rescue, things that local municipalities would be happy to call them up and ask for help in a time of need, I would be more interested in joining them. But as far as I see, most here are just geared towards fighting the US government which is why I cut ties with them years ago. The last time I associated with one and attended a meeting was having a class on how to disable MRAPs (and how many countries widely use MRAPs).

I read the article. I like what they're trying to do as far as distancing themselves from the anti government type movements.

Unfortunately, I doubt most of the public will get it. And I doubt there are too many groups like that around the US. None that I can find in Ca. Seems they're all anti something or other.

Not sure about everywhere else but Florida has a law that prevents this kind of training. However there are great training classes for survival and self-defense that push the envelope.  One example is Trident Fitness Tactical’s Full Spectrum Warrior Training, great teaching by some of the best teachers you would ever meet.
