Just got back home from a "72" and it was in the mail box - Thanks! You did a great job, very well designed. Looks even better in person. I may buy a Cairns and test it out myself. We'll let you know how it goes - I'll look into making a video for you as well. I have almost 300 subscribers on YouTube so maybe it will help to promote your product/company.

Thanks again brother, I'll be in touch.

Dale, the front will go out tomorrow, should see it in a couple of days. Have fun with it and dont be gentle, test the entanglement probability too. If it lives up to the standards I believe it will, you can feel free to use it in a video for your collection.

Be safe, train hard

Could you send me a Black Front with the Shamrock logo - He's Irish!

My address is fine to ship to - Thanks brother, we look forward to testing it out in the field!

Hello Rick,

Good to hear from you again brother and thanks for the invite and comments on the Portable Training Prop video!

Yes, I would like to see your Fire Front shield holder - Were you training when you became entangled or was it at an actual fire?

Looking at your site and the photos it's hard to tell, but is the front flange that holds the tip of the shield solid aluminum? As you know these get bent/dented quite easily on the traditional style. I understand that's why Morning Pride/FDNY went with a more solid front/shield holder when they changed their helmet.

I have already forwarded on your site to many of my contacts. The Fire Front looks cool and from your photos appears to be more durable than the standard holder, but I can't lie to you bro - I am partial to the carved Eagle. I always wished someone made an Eagle that was as intricate, but more solid and less likely to bend.

I have a Paul Conway, but a few of my Instructors have Cairns and we would definitely be willing to put it to the test and demo it for you.

Talk to you soon brother.
