Active Self Protection is THRILLED to have the support of Big Tex Ordnance.

Ike and his team are wildly popular in the shooting and self-defense community because they are committed to providing the greatest selection of top-shelf gear at a fair price, supported by knowledgeable staff and absolutely the BEST customer service in the industry. Please thank them for their support of Active Self Protection by considering them for any of you gear needs, let them prove to you why they have an almost fanatic fan base of their own.

Self-defenders should be interested in all the tools that can protect and preserve innocent life and good trauma gear can do that. Trauma is trauma, whether it is a vehicle accident, farming accident, or a gunshot wound – when seconds count you need the right equipment for the job. You MUST get your trauma gear from a reputable source and Mountain Man Medical is ASP’s go-to source for all of our medical gear.

What gets measured, gets improved and this helps you measure every aspect of dry (and live!) fire. Get one at
