4-14 is originally the story of a profession, that of DP, who founded the 4-14 Training Sports Association with the aim of sharing his passion.
"I am an operator with a long militancy in the armed forces elite departments. I have been trained and prepared by the best instructors and I have been employed in numerous military operations. Throughout my life I have had the opportunity to live a lot of experiences where to try my speed, aggression and precision. The most important lesson I’ve learned here is to practice, always practice and when you think you’re done practice again! Training is fundamental to survive in an operational context where the immediate response to a threat becomes the key point. In this situation the mental clarity and the fluidity of movement will be proportionate to the level of knowledge of the procedures and to how comfortable you feel in using your weapon. Reacting quickly to a threats is not enough, you need to be able to locate it, identify it and so suppress it to secure everything around the threat, have full control of the situation and dominate the area.
After entering in the operating unit, I’ve been carrying out all the planned training, in this way I have had the opportunity to learn from the most qualified and demanding instructors in the operating environment. But above all I have worked every day with the best soldiers that the armed force could provide. And from here, I have had the opportunity to also hold positions as a shooting and combat instructor in restricted areas. "
In these circumstances, technology also acquires a fundamental role. For example, the careful choices of aiming systems suitable for shooting, both in and out of light conditions, increase the operator's ability to bring the mission to a successful conclusion. In the same way appropriate clothing determines, through its characteristics and performance, the security, control and efficiency feelings at the highest levels.
