SWAT Round-Up International In Orlando This Week

SWAT Round-Up InternationalI am in Orlando this week for the Florida Law Enforcement Property Recovery Unit (FLEPRU) conference.  On my way over, I just had to stop at the Orange County Sheriff’s Sheriff’s Office Range for the annual SWAT Round-Up International.  I competed here in the 1990’s and again one last time in 2006.

I visited the vendors and will post some photos of some cool stuff I saw.  In the meantime, I was able to see an old friend from my Academy days some 26 years ago.  He works out here and is doing well.

I watched the shooters load up in the van at the start of Event 2.  I remember being one of those guys a while back.  I am glad they are getting to take classes and compete out here.  It is a wonderful learning experience and great team building.  I have always felt that this is a week to network and sharpen your skills.

I have had a busy time and it is not over.  I have photos and information to post about the interesting things going on here this week in O-town, but I just got back from the hospitality room so I’ll be saying good night now.  Stay tuned.
