    I can't believe this guy have a large fanbase. Everything about him is dubious.
    This guy comes off as a total shill, a humbug…A glorified Walter Mitty. I've seen enough of his videos to realize he never addresses a question directly.

    Maybe I'm wrong but as myself being prior service, 1ID, he just strike me as someone trying to play a part, like he's trying to fit a media made image.

    We all need military background as it teaches a lot more than shooting straight ad strip cleaning your weapon.  Only those that have not been in the service need ask what I am talking about.   Instructor Zero you have the perfect name.  Go Yeager!

    its said that Zero can't hear a thing without his ear pro on!
    its also said that he has to wear his eye pro during interviews because his direct gaze will knock you down!

    Okay, I am a teacher. I teach in Asia and one thing I teach my students is how to spot a bullshit resume. You always ask the questions- Who, what, when, where, why, and how. So let's analyze Zero's resume! It is all bullshit! This would not fool a reasonably intelligent 12 year-old. Funker Tactical should be ashamed as they were stupid enough to get people to look at this shit!
    Bachelor Degree: Investigation and Security Sciences – 110110 cum Laude- Where? He never says where he got his degree from and that is a huge red flag.
    Former Instructor 5th Assault Battalion, Italian Military – Folgore Parachute Brigade- this is a "who" issue. There is no such unit. There is a 5th. Batallion but not an "Assault Batallion." And what was his military operations specialty? He may have been a cook! But he was a private and privates do not teach anything!
    CEO: OUTCOMES Security & Defence Advisors- Here there are several issues- who have they worked for? Who are their operators or lower people in the structure. What sorts of details have they worked?
    President/Head Instructor: Spartan 360 Tactical Defence Group- what do they do and for who? What countries and what sorts of environments? Desert? Tropical? Mountainous? Urban protection? Counterterrorism?
    Strategic design, analysis, study & implementation of security protocols for three high security clearance sites relating to I*** (Highest National Clearance)- For who? What is a Highest National Clearance? This implies he works at a say CIA "need to know" level and I doubt a private with 1 year of training has those clearances. And what form of security protocols. This just a bunch of buzz words for stupid people.
    Clinical Professor: University level, Sciences for Investigations and Security, Italy- To be a professor he must have a Masters of PhD. First off where did he get those degrees? Where did he teach as he never says where?
    Chief Security Architect and Current Security Operations Director holding one of the Highest Security Levels for a Civil Industrial Site in Italy- What is his job description? What civil industrial site? What country? What do they make? For what company? All those are important and my father worked in military contracting so I know some of the parameters and he had a very high security clearance.
    This a disgrace and pure shit!

    In the words of Ryan hoover. Fuck your lineage. It makes no difference who you trained with. Your credentials don't mean shit. You don't need to be paramedic to perform cpr and first aid.

    I am a contractor since 1990, grow up in a shooting range, my ancestor was the first recognize mercenary in Italy in 1500 personal bodyguard at the service of Pope Leo X, all the men in my family were contractors and never spent a day in the military, it helps but non essential if you remain in the private sector, obviuosly good training but again, we are protecting people since the 16th century.

    Having a military background does not mean you will be successful in firearms training or security since there are all sorts of jobs in the military. Most don't involve guns. I would think that someone who was in special operations would be much better suited for that. I would think the majority of service members have little to no tactical or close quarters combat training at all.

    it's this simple.. your born with it and then you perfect it… not even 1% are this good… you don't choose to shoot, shooting chooses you… fact… instructor zero is 1 of few, born to shoot, evolved to kill….
