NEWSFLASH - USMC ADOPTS GLOCKS AND APPENDIX CARRY!!! Every so often the discussion comes up again...here is my final answer...again.
The test is not a mag dump on the clock, but rather a true firing drill against targets that require target acquisition and traversing. A man that knows how to use a pump action can be just as fast as a man using a semi auto, and have a far less complex weapon.
The Stakeout concept is gaining ground. I shake my head at all the guys that sneered at the idea we discussed last year now getting orgasmic over the Mossberg Shockwave and the Remington Tac-14 (I wonder how many got a free weapon from Mossy or Remy?). Anyway - here are the original videos we did. Feel free to comment or discuss. Stakeout 870s are in the shop ready to be built to your specs and so much more efficient, accurate and shootable than the mass produced items you won't believe it.
It never ends...I can imagine how Columbus felt at the idiocy of those around him. So again I get emails that some Youtube pundit with less experience than an average ten year old arguing about why Appendix carry should be shunned...ostensibly in favor of a leather outside the waist, hand tooled holster for their 1911...or worse, the J-frame in their pocket. Here is a video we did a while back slamming their argument to the deck like an MMA takedown.
I am posting this so we can learn. There is always an antagonist view to posting things like this and we are criticized that we are unduly criticizing. But if we don't do this, mistakes, and there are always mistakes, will be repeated again and again. So lets watch this and see if we can discuss tactical things that we can learn from and do better should we find ourselves in such a situation.
This is a very graphic video. If you are squeemish, at work, or under 18, don't watch it. OK...disclaimer posted. This is a "Sicario" or a hitman targeting and carrying out a hit in a barber shop. Comment on the lessons learned.
