Krupa Resigns as Head of DS Arms LE Training Division


This E-mail is to inform you that effective 01 December 2012, I have resigned as an employee with DS Arms and as the Director of Training for the DS Arms LE Training Division.

Asset transition will be completed by 31 December 2012 and as of 01 January 2013 Spartan Tactical Training Group will relinquish control of all DS Arms Training Division operations back to DS Arms.

While this was a tough business decision for me to make, the business interests, goals and objectives of Spartan Tactical Training Group have moved in a different direction that, unfortunately, does not include DS Arms.

This decision was strictly business based and does not affect my personal relationship with any of my friends at DS Arms.

We had a long, successful run representing DS Arms, from January 2005 to December 2012 and I want to thank all of you for your commitment to excellence in helping me run one of the best mobile firearms training division’s in the country!

I’d like to personally thank the following people for putting the work in on the road: Steve Chung, Aaron Cunningham, Marc Galli, Vince Jamison, Mike Keefe, Sung Joo Lee, Daniel Lombard, Richard Lombard, Les Kismartoni, Pete Milionis, Roland Perez, Frank Petrone, Donald Szczesny, James Washington and Lucas Wise. (Please forgive me if I missed anyone!)

You guys are AWESOME!!!

There is no doubt, that without your help and support, many of the training courses, conference presentations, certification courses and match events would not have been possible.

I have recommended and endorsed Pete Milionis as my successor as Director of Training and hope that he is selected to continue carrying the DS Arms Training Division banner into the future.

God bless all of you and have a safe & wonderful holiday season.
