The Best of PDN Articles & Videos: 2015

BEST OF PDN 2015: TRAINING ARTICLES AND VIDEOS

Personal Defense Network has been around long enough that we have a couple of traditions. One is our annual “Best of” collection of videos and articles. The presentation of the Best of the year has changed over the past five years, but has a consistent process.First, as a PDN member, you get the first vote. Every December, the team at PDN HQ compiles a list of the top videos and articles for me to review. This is the popularity contest … and it tells us a lot about what you are interested in, which helps us plan what to bring you next year. I chose not to include gear review videos in the lists. We know that the nature of the internet is that gear will always get more attention than training information, which is PDN’s primary focus. You can see the three most popular gear-related videos here: GunVaultUltiClip and Liberty Ammunition. Below, you will find links to the Top 8 Training Articles and Videos published in 2015.As you probably know, PDN doesn’t exist just to entertain. Popularity isn’t the driving force of content production. Our education mission is what underlies the catchphrase “We don’t tell you what you want to hear, we tell you what you need to hear.” The most important job I have as Executive Director is to work with our team of contributors to come up with educational content that may only be valuable to a small group of people in the firearms community (and outside of it) who are truly interested in preparing to meet their responsibilities for personal defense and protecting those whom they care about.The second step is to let you know which of the popular articles and videos I thought were the most important and why. This year, I have picked three articles and three videos from your favorites. There are tens of millions of gun owners in the United States and tens of millions of others who have an interest in self-defense, knives, survival, and many of the wide variety of topics we cover here at Personal Defense Network. But I believe the hundreds of thousands of you who are registered for our free monthly newsletter or have joined PDN as Premium Members belong to the elite group of people who go beyond being hobbyists when it comes to guns, gear, or martial arts. The entire PDN team is dedicated to serving up the best content we can for people interested in learning as much as possible to keep themselves and their loved ones safe during their everyday lives, right up to the worst possible scenarios you can imagine. I hope you enjoy this look back over the Best of PDN for 2015.
