What Common or Household Objects will Stop Bullets?


I highly recommend to all my readers to check out my fellow Texan Ole’ Painless’ site Box O’ Truth for very practical penetration testing.

H/T Active Response Training

An unconventional use of “urban sniping” skills.

Bad guy kills resident and barricades himself inside her apartment before firing from inside towards people walking outside.

I thought about this one.  If that was happening in my neighborhood, what gun would I choose?  I have a couple sniper rifles and they would work well, but I’d probably grab my primary AR-15 just in case the situation went more mobile.  I have an LPVO on that AR-15 and I think this is another scenario that proves the utility of that concept over a red dot.

Really practical, no-nonsense article on building yourself a tack driver that won’t break the bank.

It wouldn’t hurt to Educate yourself on Guerilla Sniping while you are here also.

Parents, Teach Your Children Well

12-Year-Old Boy Defends 73-Year-Old, Shoots, Kills Home Invader


My father started teaching me the basics of becoming a rifleman when I was six years old.

It was a Sheridan .20 caliber Silver Streak and she was beautiful.

If you are the parent of a young child, instead of buying them that video game or tablet, buy them a pellet gun and start teaching the fundamentals of marksmanship and responsible firearm ownership.

After that progress to a 10/22 then a scoped deer rifle then an AR/AK then a pistol, etc…

Believe me when I tell you that in this day and age nothing can be more important.

GRAPHIC! Crazed Man Attacking Deputy Soaks Up 12 Rounds Before He’s Stopped

Crazed Man Attacking Deputy Soaks Up 12 Rounds Before He’s Stopped

A hardcore, close up video of a police shooting of a crazy dude with a stick.

This video dispenses with the urban myth that people fall down on the first shot even at close range with a decent defensive caliber as shown here.

There are always things to critique in vids like this, mainly the need to transition to a cranial T shot (Failure to Stop Drill) after rounds to center of mass have no effect (Possibly due to body armor or drugs) but one thing I would definitely add is that LATERAL movement “Off the X” is almost always better than HORIZONTAL (BACKING UP) due to the increased risk of tripping over your own feet or something else on the ground and ending up having to fight on your back, not good!

Regardless, ALWAYS integrate movement and Failure to Stop drills into your training regimen!
