Homebrew Technical Ideas

From a Redneck Perspective, a Version of a “Technical” would be what we call in Texas a “Pig Truck”.

Simply put, a Pig Truck is a 4×4 Truck of some type with good lighting, good suspension, good mud tires and a few mods in the back and up top.

Back in the Good Ole Days when you could find Century Arms Romanian RPK’s for cheap we had a couple of those with 100rd Beta Mags mounted with red dot’s on bipod swivel mounts on the roof. We found seats were pretty much useless in the bed of the truck, so we installed hand grips and a simple seatbelt harness to keep the one to two operators from getting thrown out.

If you can swing the personnel and are hunting at night, it’s good to have your passenger work a spotlight freeing up your driver to drive and your two shooter’s to SHOOT.

This is a very versatile set-up and could easily be changed from hunting Four legged critters to Two!

 

Thermal Camouflage: The Jäger Rig

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

Last week I posted an article about thermal camouflage. In that article I mentioned the use of mylar GI Casualty blankets to hide a static position. However, this is more than simply draping the blanket on top of you, there is an technique that must be applied. Today I will show you my method of rigging a mylar blanket so that it meets my requirements in the field, as listed below:

  • It must conceal my thermal signature from air and ground sensors, regardless of how long I’ve been underneath it.
  • It must be visually camouflaged from air and ground observation.
  • It must not cause me to overheat when spending several hours under it.
  • It must be easy to set up and tear down quickly (under 5 minutes).
  • It must also serve as a shelter from wind, rain, and cold if necessary.

The following technique is the result of my…

Self-Defense Issues: How are Your Grappling Skills?

In a recent video, a Chik-fil-A employee courageously jumps in to save a woman from a carjacking attempt.

In the video you can see the employee drag the carjacker POS from the car and then subdue him with a choke until the carjacker surrenders.

Regardless if you carry any type of weapon on your person for self-defense, you should always have a toolbox of empty-hand skills.

Some of the most basic and practical skills to have are Choke/Submission techniques from Brazilian Ju-Jitsu.

  1. Rear Naked Choke

  2. Guillotine Choke

  3. Arm Triangle Choke (Anaconda, D’Arce Choke)

  4. Triangle Choke

  5. Side Choke

 

There are also a SHIT TON of Clothing Choke holds that can be very useful, in particular the T-Shirt and Hoodie Choke.

 

 

You can never have enough empty hand skills folks!

Personally I think Street Combatives/Boxing combined with cherry picked techniques from all the major disciplines: Muay-Thai, BJJ, Krav-Maga and Kali offer the Armed Civilian the best chance, but as with everything in life, find what works for you and TRAIN HARD!

I highly recommend Southnarc (Shivworks) for Realistic Street Fighting Training.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
