Pat was one of the greats of the modern firearms training world, and even more than that he was of inestimable value to me in preparing my magnum opus on Det One.
For years I tried to horn in on a Pat Rogers carbine course. His course schedule and mine never worked out– when he was teaching I was unavailable or out of cash, when I was free or flush with ill-gotten gains he was teaching far away or was full up, although he always straight-up said that I’d be comp’ed. A good guy all around.
Semper Fi, Marine!
