Bensalem, Pennsylvania – January 12, 2012 – Mission First Tactical – a leading manufacturer of accessories for AR15 and AK47 weapon platforms will outfit all of the rifles used in two programs offered by the Navy SEAL Academy – a training and fitness school founded and staffed by former and active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs. MFT will supply furniture and accessories for AR -15 carbines to be used in two of the Navy SEAL Academy’s tactical programs. In the one-day Tactical Mini Adventure Program, students learn both Close-Quarters Battle (CQB) and Carbine Marksmanship, firing 500 rounds along the way. Participants in the Urban Warfare Course fire 1000 rounds over two days as they learn room entry, movement and weapon manipulation. Gordon Edelman, President of Mission First Tactical, stated enthusiastically: “It’s a nobrainer why we want to work with these guys. I can’t stress how proud we are to be in partnership with such a fantastic organization staffed by real special-forces warriors. They provide a glimpse into a world few get to see…a no-compromise world where our gear is sure to get a true workout.”
Nathanael “Lalo” Roberti, President/CEO and Lead SEAL Instructor at Navy SEAL Academy, “We’re very happy to be partnering with MFT, a company that understands what it is we do, what’s at stake and how gear needs to perform. The purpose of our program is to give students and clients the confidence needed to be successful in a stressful environment. We keep our tactics and methods current and authentic so that our graduates experience the most -advanced training based on real- world combat operations. To that end, the gear we use needs to be up to the task… because it will get wrung-out.” Lalo also added: “In combat, preparation and mindset are of the utmost importance. A moment’s break in concentration can have real consequences. That means you need 100% dependable equipment. If you’re worried about a piece of gear, you’re distracted. That won’t do. We trust MFT to stand up round after round, course after course.” Edelman summarized: “This is a huge opportunity for us to extend our reach into the community. We couldn’t be more excited about our involvement with Navy SEAL Academy. It’s a true reflection of everything we’ve wanted our brand to represent from the outset. Lalo is a veteran of many important actions, including Operation Redwing. An endorsement from someone like him is an honor.” Visit Mission First Tactical at SHOT 2012 January 17th-20th at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth 11966.
