    Tactical Shooting and Moving

    Mar 15 2019

    Beau Doboszenski of Defensive Mindset Training is weighing in on a consistant feature in defensive literature, the concept of "getting off the X."

    In military parlance, an ambush is set by creating two interlocking fields of fire from a unit. Those fields of fire interlock to make an ‘X.’ Therefore, to get out of an ambush, it is crucial to get out of that area of interlocking fire or “off the X.”

    This concept has been more broadly applied to self-defense to mean getting off of the line of attack. In a one-on-one situation there isn’t an interlocking field of fire, but there is a point or line of attack. By picturing actual visual lines you gain an interesting perspective on how to deal with an incoming attack while moving and shooting.

    Ok, what is this analysis all about?

    Feb 28 2019

    As Viridian gets increasing publicity about the Weapon Mounted Camera, it is a challenge to avoid overreacting and the temptation to respond to any stated misconceptions about our product that come with that publicity. (Beggars can’t be choosers?) Our esteemed President & Founder, Brian Hedeen, recently did an entertaining and informative interview with KTAR Radio in Phoenix. The hosts, Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes, were engaging and well-prepared and displayed that they understood the key themes of our product. We greatly appreciated the opportunity for the large market reach provided. In my role at Viridian and against my better judgment, however, I cannot resist the temptation to respond to one of those misconceptions that was illustrated in the coverage.

    Media Inquiring into Weapon-Mounted Cameras in aftermath of Hoover mall police shooting

    Feb 20 2019

    Viridian found itself as part of news coverage in Alabama this past week surrounding the tragic Thanksgiving officer-involved shooting at a mall near Birmingham. In light of the recent news, associated with the Alabama Attorney General report and decision not to charge the involved police officer, that the police Body Cameras were not activated prior to the shooting, media outlets have inquired about our Weapon Mounted Camera. There had been previous Birmingham-area media coverage of the Viridian WMC adopted by other Alabama agencies, which has informed Alabama viewers that our device records automatically when the officer’s gun is drawn, and we believe would have captured this event.
