January 2020 Quote

“The two most important rules in a gunfight are: always cheat and always win."

Clint Smith

Clint Smith is President and Director of Thunder Ranch, is a Marine Corps veteran of two infantry and Combined Action Platoon tours in Vietnam. His experience includes seven years as a police officer during which he served as head of the Firearms Training Division as well as being a S.W.A.T. member and precision rifleman. He left law enforcement to serve as Operations Officer for the American Pistol Institute (Early Gunsite Academy) where he was Dean of instruction and was instrumental in range and curriculum development for A.P.
In 1983, Clint founded International Training Consultants, Inc., an active mobile training program which is nationally recognized for innovative programs in Urban Rifle, Shotgun, Precision Rifle, and various handgun formats
In 1986, he served as Director of Training for Heckler & Koch, Inc., where he developed and taught progressive courses in fully automatic weapons as well as conventional weapons systems.
In 1993, Thunder Ranch, Inc. opened to show not only innovative training, but numerous range designs and functions of a type not seen before in one facility. Clint is a contributor to American Handgunner, American Cop, GUNS and SWAT magazines and has published articles in many other national and in international publications.

I have never taken a class from Thunder Ranch or met Clint Smith. But from what I have seen and heard from different sources I like his thinking. I think he and I would see eye-to-eye on many, many things!
