Before joining local law enforcement and becoming a certified NRA pistol instructor, Rob Curran ascended to the rank of sergeant during his four years of service in the US Marine Corps. Meanwhile, his fellow certified instructor, Denis Donovan, earned his sergeant rank in the US Army after tours in Iraq and Kuwait, and then worked as a police officer and SWAT-team operator. Since 2011, the pair has compiled their expertise in teaching fundamental firearms training to beginners and more advanced defensive techniques to operators of carbine rifles, handguns, and shotguns. In addition to in-depth instruction, Tactical Dynamics Firearms Training outfits customers with its handmade and custom-modeled holsters and magazine carriers.

The Boston College Eagles are set to shred the competition with their metaphorical talons next month when they kick off their season with home games against the Weber State Wildcats and Kent State. Although the Eagles were treacherously swindled out of the Emerald Bowl title last year by the cunning Trojans, this year’s roster is stocked with talented players who are ready to lead the way to victory with aerodynamic skull armor and bubblegum-flavored mouthguards. You'll get lower end-zone views of the tackling, throwing, and funcitement.
