DURANT, Okla. -- Choctaw Nation representatives say they're in the process of outfitting their facilities with door shields. "We are taking a very proactive role in getting these safety measures implemented," Cecilia Armendariz said. Armendariz is the director of facilities for the Choctaw Nation.

The door shield weighs 55 pounds and is 3/8ths of an inch thick and made of fiberglass. It's function is to stop bullets from penetrating classroom doors. "I firmly believe that we will be retro-fitting our facilities at this point," Choctaw Nation Commodities Manager Boyd Miller said.

The tribe brought in business owner and tribe member, Sage Dyer in to demonstrate the product. She is the founder of Safer Schools for America, and the inventor of this door shield.

"I'm a mom," Dyer said when asked what was her inspiration to invent this product.

During the demonstration, shooters fired rounds from a .40 and .44 caliber pistols, a 12-gauge shotgun, and an AR 556 rifle at the door. Only the rifle bullets were able to puncture the door.

Along with the shield, Dyer's company also showed off its locking system, and bullet proof glass.


Armendariz said she sees the purchase of these shields as a service to the tribe's members. "We want to make sure that our children and our senior citizens are in the safest environment possible," she said. "We do have some rural areas where unfortunately getting security and keeping things safe is difficult."

Urban Sniper Skills

Photos by Jake Swanson A Former SEAL Schools Us On the Finer Points of Fieldcraft and Marksmanship in the Concrete Jungle According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 80 percent of the American population lives in urban areas. Yet, whenever we see classes or articles about precision marksmanship, they’re usually set against a backdrop of wide-open spaces, with emphasis on the mythical “1,000-yard shot.” Charles Mosier, lead sniper with Las Vegas SWAT and a former Navy SEAL, aims to change that with his urban sniper course. Basic skills of fieldcraft, navigation, stalking, and trigger pulling don’t change, whether the environment is the tundra of northern Norway or the mountains of Afghanistan. But the methods used to ensure a successful shot and the survival of the shooter must be adapted to circumstance. This is why Mosier teaches through doing. Each student gets the chance to practice with his or her equipment in a hands-on setting to see what works, and if it doesn’t, to come up with

Navistar has developed the SOTV-B, a purpose-built tactical vehicle

 (Navistar) If you’ve ever seen videos from an African or Asian warzone, you’ve probably noticed most of them have something in common: midsize pickups. Lots of them. Usually Toyotas, but increasingly Chinese, the typically white, crew cab trucks are a favorite mode of transportation for both combatants and folks just going about their business in developing nations. So, if you’re from out of town and looking to fit in, say on a secret recon mission with your special ops team, they’re a good way to go, but not exactly military spec. That’s why Navistar has developed the SOTV-B, a purpose-built tactical vehicle that was designed to look like your average pickup, but isn’t. Related Image Expand / Contract  (Navistar) Based on the SOTV-A, which wears a more official uniform, the SOTV-B is fitted with the most generic bodywork imaginable. There’s nothing distinguishing about it at all, but if you’re still concerned the locals have gotten wise to your presence, th
