MDFI Class Ammo Available for Purchase

We know sourcing ammo has been a difficult task as of lately and we are excited to announce that in partnership with Fenix Ammunition, we are now offering ammo for purchase to new student registrations! This is designed to make sure that students are still able to train during the current ammo situation. Both MDFI and Fenix Ammo believe in the importance of training your defensive skills – and we cannot thank Fenix Ammo enough for offering this opportunity to our students.
