Not new news but a good reminder to stock up on steel case while you can.

Bert Waldron: Nature versus Nurture, A Sniper’s Story

 

When it comes to Vietnam-era Snipers, most folks always talk about GySgt. Carlos ‘Whitefeather’ Hathcock, USMC but have you heard of another American Bad-Ass by the name of Bert Waldron?

 

Know Your Weapons: Mannlicher M1895 Rifle

AUSTRIA-HUNGARY’S M-95 Rifle

 

“The M95 proved itself one of the finest battle rifles of the First World War. It weighed around a pound less than its equally lengthy peers and was slim and almost delicate by comparison. The soldiers who carried it appreciated its light weight but the Allied soldiers facing the M95 in the icy Alps and trenches took note of its high rate of fire compared to their turn-bolt action guns. The M95 was capable of 30–35 rounds a minute while turn-bolt actions were generally limited to 15–20 shots a minute. The simplicity of the straight-pull’s forward-backward bolt operation certainly made it easier to master than a turn-bolt action, which requires twice the number of motions to cycle. In addition, the upward motion to lift a cock-on-opening bolt handle — for example the Lebel, Berthier, M1903 Springfield, Carcano — is physically more difficult and more disruptive to the aim. The British SMLE, which cocked on the forward stroke like the Mannlicher, was the M95’s closest rival in speed of operation.”

 

Shooting Your Enemy’s Leaders Seems To Work (In Cyrillic, At Least)

Shooting Your Enemy’s Leaders Seems To Work (In Cyrillic, At Least)

 

I am all about learning lessons from the current Goat Rodeo in Ukraine to apply here at home where the real enemies are.

One of those lessons is this:

EVERY MAN a Rifleman!

Because the Most Dangerous Thing in the World is a Dedicated Man and his Rifle!

Because it’s not just about Shooting People, it’s about Shooting the RIGHT People.

 

Train Frequently and Prepare Accordingly.

Don’t Forget to Drill on Head Shot’s

 

Every time I see a hostage situation video and the end result is the bad guy getting a free lobotomy (as above) I am reminded of the Practicality of Drilling for such an event with both my pistol and rifle.

Why? Because when seconds count, the Cops are an hour away.

Don’t depend on somebody else to save your life or the life of your loved ones.

Train, Train and Train Some More!

A better and more specific term for the “Head Shot” would be the “Cranial T.”

Imagine drawing a uppercase T on the bad guy’s face starting at the eyes, not the forehead. Why?

The below picture is of a POS who took a 9mm MP-5 round to the forehead.

 

Two inches lower and it would have been light’s out for the Missing Link.

This article from SOFREP “Heads are Harder than you Think” explains things perfectly.

Bottom Line: Drill on taking these kind of shots regularly from various ranges with both handgun and rifle.

Because there is nobody coming to save you.

Prepare Accordingly.
