“BCM is privileged to partner with the top instructors of weapons manipulation and tactics in the industry today,” said Paul Buffoni, President and Founder of BCM and “Men with decades of field experience, both collectively and individually, who have chosen to make it their mission in life to pass on what they have learned so that the next generation going into harm’s way can benefit from their knowledge. It is my honor to create a platform for these men to have their voices heard.”

Produced by Buffoni, Travis Haley and Jon Chang, the series was conceived of and directed by Jon Chang, author of the graphic novel series Black Powder \ Red Earth.

“Working with the BCM crew has been a life changing experience,” Chang said. “It’s rare that you get an opportunity to work with people who have so much history and skill. Through these short documentary pieces, we are offering a glimpse into who these men are and why.”
