Thought provoking article from both sides of the “insurgent equation.”

Study Up.

“Sometimes it’s useful to pay attention to even the most unlikely attack scenarios.  Looking at them as a thought experiment will provide some insight into more mundane self protection events.”

He could have used examples like “Antifa”, “BLM” (“Burn, Loot, Murder” cuz they earned that moniker), “Crips”, “Bloods”, “Murder Inc.”, or even the Damned Al-Qaeda turd-burglers (And yes, the goats in that part of the world are always scared). But no, who did he disrespect? The two groups that probably have the highest percentage of “Pro God”, “Pro Morality”, “Pro-Law”, “Pro-Constitution”, “Law Abiding”, “Tax Payin’”, and “Rule Followin’” (to the point of mask wearin’ ridiculousness) People in the Nation, as demographics go. So no, this Imbecile doesn’t get a pass. As I said, from all the indicators I’ve seen, this is more of a norm in the SOF Community, than not, and that is tragic and sad.

Preppers were the original Americans, till people felt safe and comfortable, then they got fat, happy and stopped planning ahead and preparing for bad times. It has had to be relearned through the last couple centuries, but for the most part, that’s as “American” a trait as you can get, from a practical living standpoint.

Time is getting short.

Harden your hearts, toughen your bodies, and steel your minds.

Old West Advice…Lessons Learned from Wyatt Earp

OLD WEST ADVICE…LESSONS LEARNED FROM WYATT EARP

 

1. “No wise man ever took a handgun to a gunfight.”

Earp obviously knew the advantage of weapon superiority. If you know your opponent is armed with a handgun, bring a shotgun, or rifle. Give yourself every advantage possible. You don’t want to fight fair. You fight to win. Something to think about for home defense.

2. “The most important lesson I ever learned was the winner of a gunplay usually was the one who took his time. The second was if I hoped to live on the frontier, I would shun flashy trick-shooting, grandstand play, as I would poison. In all my life as a frontier peace officer, I did not know a really proficient gunfighter who had anything but contempt for the gun fanner, or man who literally shot from the hip.”

The saying “slow is smooth, smooth is fast” applies here. Also, a fast miss never neutralized anyone. Guns have sights on them for a reason. Use them! Pick up your front sight during combat shooting. As Gunsite, famous fighting school preaches, “front sight, press” is the key to winning armed confrontations.

3. “Fast is Fine, But Accuracy is Everything…”

Again, a fast miss never helped anyone.

Take the time to use your front sight for making solid hits. The spray and pray mentality is useless with today’s high-capacity semi-autos.

4. “The most important lesson I learned was the winner of a gunplay usually was the one who took his time.”
This is related to #3. Take your time, but do it quickly, ensuring a smooth draw. Pick your front sight up and press your trigger smoothly, not jerking your shot, missing your adversary.

5. “Shooting at a man who is returning the compliment means going into action with the greatest speed of which a man’s muscles are capable, but mentally unflustered by an urge to hurry, or the need for complicated nervous and muscular actions which trick shooting involves.”

All this means is don’t lose your head. Easier said than done, but a cool head will prevail. Focus on the mechanics of a smooth draw and calculated shot. Fast shooting is useless in the “spray and pray” fashion. Remember your training. We all revert to training under stress … which emphasizes how vital proper training is.

If you’re not formally trained, do it. Training is the most important accessory you can buy, more than any gun, or ammo.
