“I’ve been using HDCC 9mm and 5.56 for about two years with no issues. Repeatedly above 95 on slow fire B8’s at 25 yards with pistol, and scoring 375 and better on a 400 point aggregate drill from 0-400 on B8’s. Reliability has been superb, accuracy phenomenal, customer service has been fantastic. I highly recommend HDCC ammo because the guys who make it also shoot it.”

Travis Kennedy

Born and raised in Southern California, Travis joined the Navy in 2006 with the goal of becoming a Navy SEAL. After graduating from SEAL training, he went onto complete the Special Operations Combat Medic course. From there, he was stationed at SEAL Team Four where he completed two successful combat deployments to Afghanistan.

He then went on to become a Basic Underwater Demolition/Seal (BUD/s) instructor and was able to develop and mentor future SEALs. Being an instructor was one of the most rewarding times of his career.

After his time as an instructor, he returned to SEAL Team Four and completed another deployment while simultaneously completing his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.

Shortly after, he served as the leading Chief Petty Officer running the Special Operations Urban Combat training division. In this role, he focused on urban combat tactics, combat shooting, and professional development.

In April 2019, he separated from the military in order to follow his next calling of giving back, teaching, and mentoring others so they may grow individually and professionally.

He does this by applying his 11 years of experience as a United States NAVY SEAL to educate and train individuals on defensive shooting tactics and instilling the “Thinking Shooter” mindset.
