    well just got home from work today, was doing some filming with John Walsh all day for a new episode of America's Most Wanted

    Our unit was chosen to put on a show for them to simulate us stopping a fleeing felon in a boat..we did several cuts and takes of our tactics and were even holding john walsh at gun-point and shooting blank rounds at him!

    The episode airs this Saturday (Feb 13) @ 9pm Eastern..yall should all check it out! im one of the 2 guys that are shooting/holding the rifles/shotguns, it will be hard to tell since we are all wearing helmets and goggles though

    Set your DVRs!

    sorry, i was excited that i actually found it online, looks like stillfly found it for me :) thanks

    but we actually had 2 different guys shooting the gun, when you see the first person view, its not me, when you have the view of the gun pointing at you, thats me :)

    the other guy had a camera mounted to his helmet, which is why i think they used 2 of us to do the shooting, so that they didnt have to do any editing to the film

    nah, not that difficulty, really...

    just have to get qualified on the boat (basically knowing the boat inside and out, navigation standards, anchoring, towing..basics) then we have to be "tactical" qualified, which is basically knowing the different tactics that we employ to stop terrorist boats, drug boats, or any non-compliant boat, then we have to demostrate those tactics in a practical test type setting, which includes a basic underway firing of our machine guns, being a "tactical crewman" puts you on the bow of these boats, manning the machine gun:
    [​IMG]

    then you also have to be atleast Boarding Team Member (BTM) qualified, which is basically knowing the basic laws and where our authority comes from and also our use of force policies

    Edit: all of which takes about 8 months max to have this completed
