I had a colleague said he doesn’t need a gun or skills to protect himself from others. His comments were, “I always stay out of trouble, stay away from bad neighborhoods, mind my own business. If someone mugs me, I’ll just comply with them and give them my wallet.” Well, how naive and uninformed you are buddy. Criminals pick when and where, sometimes you can’t avoid them, you just have to be ready. Continue reading “Complying Doesn’t Mean You Will Be Safe” »
If you need a small package without sacrificing much thermal performance due to a shorter barrel, the 7.62×39 is perfect for a SBR AK or an AK pistol. Unlike the lighter 22 cal (.223/5.56×45) which relies on high velocity for it’s devastating thermal ballistic results. There are some premium 5.56×45 loads that work great in shorter barrels such as the popular 14″ lengths but these loads are expensive and can be hard to find.

A brief rundown on what you should do in case of an active shooter(s) invent. This is taken from a retired Virginia Sheriffs Department captain.
1. At the first inkling, get in motion! Don’t hesitate, nor dither. Don’t freeze and stay in one place. Terrorists are weakest and least organized at the very beginning, as their plan is just starting to unfold. That is the time to make your move, whatever form that takes. As terrorists consolidate their control, your options will rapidly dry-up!
This brave and skillful Chinese store owner seems to know what she was doing. The bad guy was already up next to her with his drawn gun. Question, would you draw your gun on an already drawn gun? That’s probably not a good idea. There are few ways you can distract the bad guy to gain distance before you draw your gun and shoot, but what she did worked out great for her.

Like it or not, we are at war with lone wolf terrorist that are rising at an alarming rate. In the past two years we seen a rise of lone wolf gunman jihadist in France and the US. These death loving barbarians recently added an additional weapon, a vehicle in to the mix of their weapons of choice.
The New Paradigm
When you got a terrorist gunman out in the loose, you must assume that he is wearing body armor or a bomb vest. Recall the Aurora, Colorado shooter? He was wearing tactical gear, a ballistic helmet and a vest.
The Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen tried to buy bulk ammunition and heavy-duty body armor from a gun shop. Armor plates are design to defeat most rifle caliber with some exceptions. Even jihadist wearing kevlar (assuming is rated quality and in new condition) will stop all common handgun rounds. Concealed carries carry handguns, not rifles, that tells us we definitely need to aim for the ocular window, side of the head and neck to stop the threat from racking up more body counts.
You should first take extra safety measures before you start your dry firing drill. The following safety precautions are;
No live ammunition in the room or area you are going to be dry firing. Meaning no ammo in magazines, or laying around anywhere within visibility and reach.
Make sure your gun is unloaded, double and triple check. You can have magazines in your pistol if you use snap caps or dummy rounds. Make sure there are NO live ammo in the magazines or laying around. Check thoroughly that those are indeed dummy rounds.
Pick a designated safe dry firing area of your house. Every time you dry fire, be aware of your muzzle direction to make sure it’s always pointed at the same common spot where you know (God forbid, you somehow missed one of your safety steps) if your gun discharges, no one will get hurt in that direction.
Don’t change your approach. Dry firing is only useful if you approach these practice shots the same way you would a “live” firearm. This means using the same motions, stance, grip and distance. This includes only pointing at your intended target, being certain of your target and keeping your finger off the trigger until you have made the decision to fire.
When guns are banned, terrorist find other weapons to kill scores of people. In this case they picked a few tons projectile moving between 25-45 mile an hour. Thus having more kinetic energy and does a greater deal of damage than the scary .223 that comes from the “black weapon of mass destruction” the liberals love to called.
My sympathy and condolences goes out to the family of those victims in Nice, France who were brutally murder tonight by an unforgivable sadist fanatic muslim terrorist who ran his truck over dozens of people. As of right now, 80 people confirm dead.
If it happen here in the states and you are a concealed carrier, what would you do when you see a trucking approaching you while running people over? The best option is to move perpendicular and out of the way (as fast as you can) to avoid the on coming vehicle. Don’t try to run away since you won’t be able to out run a car or truck. Move to a narrow spot behind heavy hard objects such as a large rectangular cement plant pots, up the sidewalk and in to stores or small alleys between building for cover. Being aware of your surroundings is critical which can buy you more time in finding your best solid cover spots. Jumping out of harms way and as the vehicle goes by you with that brief opportunity to draw and fire your gun at the front side door of the truck hoping to hit and disrupt the driver. Shots fire and bullets striking will definitely make it harder for the terrorist driver maintain control of his truck.

It’s the go-to idea that if you are able take down the terror gunman with your handgun from an obscure vantage point, or you in an unarmed group ambushes the attacker with bear hands neutralizing him, why not take his gun and shoot him, then move on to go after the next gunman? Maybe the law enforcement first responders are not on scene yet and you could have save move lives with that long gun and a fair fight with the terrorist. But what happens when the SWAT CT team sees you with the rifle during the height of the horrific chaotic scene?
Remember that is not your job to play police and chase down the assailant. You use your gun if you’re in imminent danger such as if the terrorist is within range, firing rounds at him will definitely disrupt and bring the body count down. You might also risk getting shot back.
If the terrorists are not within close proximity, it’s probably safe to find your best escape route and get the hell out ASAP!
