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.

Liberty Rising: The Murder of LaVoy Finicum

I urge all my readers to Follow the Christian Patriots Blog and Support it by purchasing the book Liberty Rising: One Cowboy’s Ascent

 

Christian Patriots

My father bleeding out in the snow is only one small part of this story. His murder was the result of a hyped up orchestration of state and federal law enforcement in reaction to a falsified threat assessment. Many ask, “How can this even happen?”
We are starting this discussion across the country with elected officials. The idea of reforming weaponized labels is underway. We have developed a four part documentary series to use as a tool to start these difficult but necessary discussions. We are introducing people to the idea of the need for training in applied civics. My book, Liberty Rising: One Cowboy’s Ascent was written to help fund the process of our case.
We have great momentum working with the same legal team that helped bring about the 2016 Oregon occupation acquittals and the 2018 Nevada Bundy mistrial. Their work uncovered both agent and…

A Modern Look At Guerrilla Radio Equipment

Good Stuff from Brushbeater.

 

Watching a recent media piece on the FARC, I noticed a few shots of their radio equipment they were using to communicate between camps. Look familiar? Its a Yaesu 817 being run from a Sealed Lead Acid battery. Here’s a better shot: Interesting layout by one of their RTOs: The old 817 appears to be […]

Pro-Government Guerillas Mix Political, Criminal Interest in Venezuela

Pro-Government Guerrillas Mix Political, Criminal Interests in Venezuela

Interesting 4GW Model happening in Venezuela and Central America Right now.

It would behoove the Martial Citizen aka Civilian Operator to take note of the Cyclical Historical relevance: This same dichotomy was seen in 1970’s and 1980’s Central America when Marxist Political Forces using Narco Dollars to finance and arm themselves took on the “Capitalist” invaders.

Do not be surprised if this same model starts to move North of the Border as well as illegal aliens flood in CONUS.
