The Bad Guy with Body Armor Problem

A Good, practical read in a day and age when more bad guys are likely to be armored up.

I look at it like this: If Center of Mass is not working, try something else.

A head shot in the real world under stress is a low percentage shot from any distance so I would lean toward pelvis.

Point being, keep putting rounds into him/her until they are not a threat.

the street standards

The recent mass killer in Dayton was wearing a bullet resistant vest.  While he was quickly neutralized by the police (disappointingly, there appears to have been no armed citizens nearby) this raises the question of how an armed citizen (or an on- or off-duty officer) can best deal with this situation.  The issue is that if their rounds are stopped by the BG’s armor then he can continue to kill until 1) the good guy figures this out and 2) goes to plan B.  So we have two issues.

How do we figure out that the BG is wearing armor?  I’ve harped a lot in these pages about the fact that we shouldn’t shoot any faster than we can assess what’s going on in front of our muzzle.  (This tactic has been picked up and come to be called “not out-running your headlights” lately in the shooting community.)  If…

Bystanders taunted and laughed as police officers were being fired upon in Philadelphia — VikingLifeBlog

Another Democrat Led Urban Shithole. Should this really come as any surprise?

All of these Eastern Seaboard Liberal enclaves are Powder kegs waiting to explode, and when they do, the Police Force won’t stand a chance, it will be every Citizen for himself and with the backwards, Draconian Gun Laws in effect in these cities that do nothing but DISARM Law Abiding citizens, it will be a Slaughter.

Arm Yourselves Now. The 2A is your Gun Permit.

A reporter at the scene of an attack on police officers said that bystanders were mocking and taunting police even as bullets rained down upon them. Read more here from The Blaze Several officers injured by suspect firing in shooting in Philadelphia; suspect in custody

The Reality of the Southern Border WAR

“We Don’t need to ACCOMODATE the FLOW, we need to STOP the Flow”

Politicians on both sides of the aisle with their head up their ass trying to sell you a false bill of goods about the REALITY of the Southern Border WAR.

I call it a WAR and not a CRISIS (like the MSM sometimes does) because INNOCENT AMERICANS are being killed DAILY by cartel dope smugglers, human traffickers and Illegal Aliens.

Don’t be Fooled. Act Now!

Support Groups like Arizona Border Recon who are our TRUE eyes and ears as to what is happening down there.

Refining the Mozambique for the 21st Century

While training the other day I put in 20 rounds on the tried and true Mozambique or “Failure to Stop” Drill.

After I ran through the drill once I realized something: I had trained myself to PAUSE between the transition from the two shots to Center of Mass to the shot to the Cranial T (Head) Why?

When this drill first came on the scene back in the day via Jeff Cooper, it was being taught primarily to Federal Law Enforcement who, in turn, after a while, begin to teach it to Armed civilians. The drills’ origins centered around an armed suspect who was HIGH on drugs not going down immediately after being shot twice in the Center of Mass. Therefore, putting a shot through the brain stem and severing all motor functions was necessary.

The “Pause” between the transition shot from the body to the head was mainly a Force Continuum/Use of Lethal Force aspect Cops were being trained to follow. “Use only the LEAST Amount of Force necessary to subdue the suspect” or, in other words, don’t shoot the son of a bitch in the head if you don’t have to.

 

Fast forward to the 21st Century and we now have Criminals like the Dallas mass shooter Brian Isaack Clyde and the Ohio Mass Shooter Connor Betts just to name a couple suited up with body armor making the Mozambique/Failure to Stop more of a necessary skill than ever before for BOTH Law Enforcement and the Armed Citizen.

 

Bottom Line: Training to give the shooter ANY advantage in the fight is STUPID, even if that advantage is a one to two second pause in our cadence of fire.

Therefore, eliminating the “Pause” between the transition from the body to the head in this drill is a practical refinement we all need to adopt when running it.

Is Mass Murder a Fault or a Feature of Gun-Control?

Rob Morse Nails It AGAIN.👍

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

 

SlowFacts

We had three mass murders here in the US during the last two weeks. The victims were attacked in “gun-free” zones where they could not defend themselves. With frightening consistency, gun-control advocates called for more of the same. ‘Gun-control failed, so we need more gun-control,’ they said. Are these failures of gun-control accidental, or are these mass murders useful tools for Democrat politicians and the mass media? The facts speak for themselves.

One of these attacks was in Gilroy, California. Gilroy is the pinnacle of gun-control in the United States. California is given an “A” rating for gun-control laws by the Giffords gun-control group. California is also ranked first in the nation for gun-control, so nobody does it better. California imposed magazine capacity limits that were supposed to keep us safe from mass murderers. California has one-gun-a-month laws that we were told would keep us safe from crazy murderers. California…

So, What Role Will Militias Play In The ‘Upcoming Unpleasantness’, Anyway? — American Partisan

Originally written a year ago, I continue to return to the piece due to its importance as well as prophetic warning. Leftist militias are not only on the rise but currently incredibly active in both an underground function and an overt direct action phase. But that said, again, I wrote it a year ago, and…
