    If you want to do a challenging winter drill wait until there are piles of snow and then try and lay out lines for fire attack. Heck you don't even have to charge them.

    It can be a blast to watch guys struggle and cuss about it, but is sure opens some eyes.

    Some of the stuff, especially about PP and SCBA is out dated, but the tactical stuff seems to still ring true.
