Minuteman vs. Jäger: A Tale of Two Paradigms

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

In a previous article, I wrote about training paradigms. Basically, everybody has that one scenario in their mind that they are preparing themselves for with their gear and training. That paradigm is the lens through which we view all our tactical inputs, and shapes everything we do in training and preparation.

In my experience talking to the individuals that come to my training classes, most American patriots have a training paradigm that I can roughly classify into one of two categories. I’ll call these the “Minuteman” and the “Jäger” paradigms. Today I will discuss what these two paradigms are, how they are different, and why they are important.

On the Guerrilla, His Ecology and His Communications

A Real World Reminder Why Citizens Should Never Give Up Their Semi-Auto Rifles

Myanmar Rebels Battle Government Junta Forces with Homemade Shotguns

The Video in the link above shows Myanmar Rebels armed with home made single shot shotguns fighting Govt. Military Forces armed with modern assault rifles.

The article does not say but I can almost promise you this fight did not end well for the rebels.

Going up against modern military rifles with single shot homemade shotguns from a fixed (entrenched) position is tactical suicide IMO but on the other hand I understand the rebels are desperate and do not have access to large quantities of military type rifles.

The rebels would have stood a better chance using molotov cocktails!

Stay Armed and Prepare Accordingly.
