The above video is excerpts from a documentary called The Battle of the Black Sea with fellow Texan and former D-Boy Paul Howe.
This is the REAL story of Black Hawk Down told from the perspective of one of the men that was there.
As I have said before I Highly recommend Paul Howe’s classes at CSAT. Both the Man and the Facilities are top notch!
I had the opportunity to interview and observe Paul Howe at Combat Shooting and Tactics (CSAT) because I was in Texas for my research on church security. Nacogdoches is one of the two local sites for our project.
So I was sure to ask him a few questions about church security in particular.

Having had his training and mindset put to the ultimate test in the “Battle of the Black Sea” in Somalia (recounted in Mark Bowden’s book and dramatized in the movie Black Hawk Down), what does “ex-action guy” Paul Howe have to teach regular guys and gals?
According to Howe, he started his training company – Combat Shooting and Tactics (CSAT) –…
