Chris Grall is one of my fiction consultants, focusing on military weaponry and small-unit tactics. He also provides weapons training to law enforcement, has served in Iraq, and showed ARealGirl and I how to shoot. He and his friends (whom, I assume, are also lethal) recently competed in a SWAT Roundup, kind of like the X-Games for people who know how to use guns and rescue hostages and what-not. Thought y'all would like to see some action shots showing that my consultants keep it real! Plus, I believe that's Chris crawling under a fence and through the mud. My kind of people.
