S.W.A.T. Magazine, the source readers trust for the information about the training and gear they need to survive, and prevail, in the real world, today announced the launch of its new television show, S.W.A.T. Magazine TV on the Outdoor Channel premiering in January 2010 every Wednesday at 7:30pm EST.
The show will bring the same professionalism, integrity and thorough insight that have been provided from the magazine over the past 25 years. Guests will include S.W.A.T. Staff Writers, Instructors, Industry Representatives and people interested in developing their firearms knowledge and skills.
Featured guests include Louis Awerbuck, Tony Blauer, Travis Haley and James Yeager as well as lesser known instructors currently active in the military and law enforcement professions.
I remember catching a couple of episodes of S.W.A.T. Magazine TV on the Outdoor Channel. Really good stuff. But I figured it was intended primarily for viewers with a law enforcement background.
I was wrong.
You see, S.W.A.T.- as it concerns this magazine- stands for “Survival Weapons and Tactics” rather than “Special Weapons and Tactics” or “Special Weapons Assault Team” from police terminology. From the S.W.A.T. Magazine TV show intro:
We’re going to introduce you to the training, the teams, the gear, and the instructors that drive the military, law enforcement, and armed personal security industry. And we’re going to show you how they apply to you. The skills, the techniques, and the gear in your preparations for personal or home defense or your enjoyment of the shooting sports.
Now, I’m not sure when S.W.A.T. Magazine TV’s run came to an end. However, I just found out that there were a bunch of episodes- try 8 of them- that never aired.
But Rob Pincus, the former host of S.W.A.T. Magazine TV and now Managing Editor at Personal Defense Network, announced earlier this year they would air via PDN:
“S.W.A.T. Magazine TV’s ‘Lost Episodes’ to air on Personal Defense Network!”
The 8 “lost episodes” focus on (in order):
• School attack
• School attacker aftermath
• Fighting while in contact
• Rifle transitions and barricades
• Use of cover
• Applying precision rifle skills
Interesting stuff. I hope a number of readers find this useful. From what I understand there’s over 3 hours of material here.
