This one is a little unusual, and has some points we should
discuss. The nutshell is that a crazy guy, who happened to buy a second
hand rifle, went bananas and shot almost 30 people, while driving
nearly ten miles on a public highway in Texas. I want to discuss the
tactical issues and then the social/political issues.
1). Sitting in your ride and getting shot through the windshield or
window unexpectedly. I have no real tactic for that one. I doubt any
here will be inves...
We will be
continuing the series of discussion, noting the sort of soft target that
the terrorist favors. Just last week, the Americans were on the spot
and thwarted a terrorist. Today may be our turn. be ready. All one has
to do is research the notable events in the past five years to get an
idea. But one picture is worth 1,000 words.
Here we have the primary aisle of a market. A shot of about 80 yards. Picture the scene:
You just finished your Paleo Shopping and have an arm ...
In the first installment we discussed the difficulty many people have about shooting what is evidently an active shooter. In short there is the seemingly societal aversion to and violence and the associated fear of “getting trouble”. We will discuss that one next time. There is also the difficulty in processing the incoming flood of sounds, images, and words and extrapolating actionable information from it to arrive at a decision to act. This is no small matter as there will always be a degree o...
If the goal is to build a renaissance warrior...a man that is both educated and physically deadly, I would follow a progression like I describe below. Some of us have been blessed to begin the journey early...growing up and living a martial lifestyle. Other guys have lived a traditional American lifestyle yet one day wake up and realize they need to fill a void. That void is something I should write about more, but it comes as a realization that there is a great deal that life may demand of th...
We all have preferences. Our “top choices” and favorites. I know
that if were to go to a gunfight this afternoon, I would prefer to use a
Remington 870 shotgun instead of the Suarez Glock that will invariably
be in my belt. Why? Because the shotgun kills better…simple as that.
But that aside, what I will have with me in my belt when I am having
lunch at the local eatery will be a Glock and not the preferred 870. It
is a simple matter of practicality. The same can be said for all our ...
Today on my forum, warriortalk.com, a member commented in incredulity on the El Paso shooting. That a place like Texas, with so many CCW licensees, and likely many in the Walmart being covertly armed, that nobody shot the gunman. The same could be said of any mass shooting that takes place in any state where CCW is prolific. A great question.
Here is what I think.
1). Most people, whether police or private citizens, have a trained aversion to kill and will do everything possible to not engage...
