COUNTER TERRORISM Feed

Continuing on the pivotal discussion a few days ago, on counter protest driving, I want to further elaborate some points and add a few new ones. Look at the lead image here. This was a vehicle that was not interested in the plight of the modern snowflake, did not care about some urban thug shot by the police, nor any of the nonsense that permeates the "protest culture". They edged forward moving, not ramming, and at some point, simply drove away. That is the simplest solution to this. One comment asked what would happen if one of these people decided to throw themselves under your tires. The answer is simple...you cannot see down there so how would you know? But moving on. So avoiding these is still the wisest course. Not because we care for the right of the militant liberals to interfere with your day (us caring about their rights at this point is laughable), but simply because it is a hassle and potentially a life threatening event. So not being there is the best option. How do we... Read more →


What does this have to do with anything today? Because what you are seeing in St. Louis is not really about race regardless of what the media are saying. Kareem Abdul Jabbar got a couple of things right. It is about “class warfare”, and its being created and fed by the Communist Movement in America. Read more →


Any field of study is based upon the traditions of its founders. The world of the gun is no different. And the generation of men who founded the art of American Gunfighting, did not hold physical fitness in high esteem. It is not to castigate them, but simply to point out that we are a product of our parents and they of their grandparents. Nobody gives birth to themselves. All that said, we certainly do not live in the world of our parents and grandparents. And we are also not limited to the information of their day. We have far more data than they did, and thus after the head start we received, we can now drive the art forward into the future. And that is true as we are making far better technical shooters today than was possible in the 1930s, or 1960s. And while men like Jordan and Bryce may have had much more experience at killing, I doubt they were better shots than the students we produce today. As well, I suspect, if Fairbairn and Applegate, and... Read more →


"STAKEOUT" The term has been in use for ages. Today it means waiting for bad guys so that when they arrive, or conclude their activities, you can arrest them...but in a time not so long ago it was interchangeable with the term "ambush". Today many guys on the job are true peace officers that can meet with high school teachers and give presentations to church group without uttering a single "fuck you". But in times past some were much more "primitive"...not Phds in Criminal Justice and Global Security...but rather "good" thugs, polished and presentable, with guns...and badges. Argue if you wish, but that was a perfect description. The stakeout was a time honored tactic. And it yielded great results. One would arrest a petty hoodlum...a thief or doper...or dope dealer. Then we would turn him like spies are turned into double agents. In essence make him and informant. And nothing was out of bounds for us. If the guy was married we would dangle him seeing his kids grow up from prison in front of his eyes. If he had... Read more →


Just to be clear, this article is about proactively and preemptively shooting and killing a terrorist or criminal that has done nothing to threaten you directly. It is an event in which you are not involved in at all. And a situation where a modern socialized male might be quite happy to remain hiding under the desk, or in the dark of a closet, remaining unseen, unchallenged, and unharmed. But since I doubt such males would have the courage to even read this blog, I suspect my readers are of the other type. Look at the lead image. Remember him? he is one of the terrorists at the ground breaking event in Mumbai some years ago. The photo was taken by a photographer that later said he'd wished he'd had a firearm to kill the man with. LET US CONTINUE. American shooters are trained in the concept of legitimate self-defense. Use of force training and de-escalation methods are discussed and trained. Using the vaunted "Big Boy Voice" to challenge the bad guy from ready positions is promoted far and wide.... Read more →


Some observations I think Trump will fundamentally change the country, and for the better...for people like us. For liberals and freeloaders, life will suck like it has never sucked before. In less than ten days look at what he has done. None of this is outlandish and are things most capitalists and conservatives have all thought needed to be done. But like an unruly child being disciplined for the first time, the nation's left is going bananas. I do see him succeeding at his...our...goals even if by force because he is not overly concerned about re-election like most others have been. He is going to be there 4 years, change things, and leave...maybe. I think it is going to be great for those of us who want to make and keep money. Specially good for the gun industry as I see the HPA and several other bills passing. The government's reach into the gun business will be reduced and those forces likely repurposed. In the meantime, I would look at the tumult of the Hippy Terrorists of the 1960s...the Weathermen,... Read more →


What a horrible thing to say or consider? Yes, for modern western man that is almost inconceivable. But as I have said for over a year, we live in a time of war. And although the Trump Presidency has been the best thing to happen to America since the end of WW2, I would not expect the momentum of the ISIS Jihad against the west to diminish. Moreover, I think that a traditional, "Let's bomb them in Syria" perspective may be fine for Syrian security, but will do nothing to thwart the Orlandos and San Bernardinos that are being planned right now in America by people that share the same philosophy. Last August I wrote a controversial article titled - Could You Kill A Child Jihadist? You can read it here - COULD YOU SHOOT A CHILD JIHADIST? In the article I referred to a video that surfaced showing 12 year old boys executing prisoners. That video was bland compared to the one I am going to show you here. At the end of the original article I said the... Read more →


The article on using weapon lights was been read quite a few times and it seems to polarize the reader. They either agree with my position, or they question my sanity. The gun world, like most of American society lives in a world of extremes. Everything is either black, or it is white. An all or nothing perspective that is never like life. Extremes only occur at the 1% on either end of the spectrum. Everything in the middle is fluid, and taking the position that life must be "always or never", is an extremely limiting position. It is however a position parroted by many intellectually slothful trainers who cannot grasp (or perhaps their students cannot grasp), that reality is more like "sometimes, maybe, and it depends". The discussion today is "Target Identification". It is one of the sales points of high end flashlights, weapon lights and low light shooting courses. In their world, target identification is nothing less than the image shown above. Then and only then, are they clear to engage and shoot. But target identification need not... Read more →


It seems that lessons need to be continually relearned because either they were never learned in the first place, or they were quickly forgotten due to inconvenience. The topic is weapon lights...and pistol lights in particular. They look very dramatic on those custom handguns in photos. We need to ask why they are there, and secondly if they are an asset on every single weapon. To answer the unasked question about my perspective and authority, all but one of the dozen gunfights I was involved with were in reduced light. The first issue is that if you do add a light, you need to know how to use it. I am always concerned about drawing fire by using a light excessively or inappropriately. If there was no concern over such things, we would simply turn the light on and leave it on like they do on TV Cop shows. I expect that most guys that add a light to their pistol, rifle or shotgun, will do just this and then vociferously defend their tactics online. The problem is that all... Read more →
