This is what you call an #epic mail call! In preparing for the show this Wednesday with @ironforgedconcepts, he sent over some helmets to inspect and try out for this coming weekend's @sentinel_cncpts Home Defense Shoot House Class. If this picture doesn't show you how badass his work is, let me tell you it is amazing! Sent over a ballistic Arma-Core, @teamwendy1 bump helmet, and a OpsCorr Fast bump helmet, all of which are equipped with @msasafety MSA Sordin ear pro setup on S.A.R.A.s. If you aren't following @ironforgedconcepts, go do it now!
