For Those Who Live in an Urban or Suburban environ, THIS is for YOU!

A shotgun gives one a certain piece of mind when outnumbered or when one really wants, no NEEDS, to bring the hurt on bad actors.  It's kinda why the po-po still carry them in their cruisers along with their M4's.  If it's good enough for them, wellllllllll, I'm thinkin' it's good enough for us, in the right application.   Don't get me wrong; I still have my 'go to' AR, pistol, and semi-precision SART (Surgical A$$hole Removal Tool).  The shotgun rounds things out nicely, though. The picture below is an inertia driven Stoeger M3000 Defense Freedom Series 12 Gauge 'Up Close and Personal' Mutant Raider Deterrent.  I'm likin' it!   It's got a pretty nice pedigree, too!  STOEGER is owned by Benelli, which is owned by Beretta.  This particular model is the closest thing you can get to a Benelli M4 without paying for the Benelli name.  I've seen them as low as $599, if you watch for sales.  I saw a Benelli M4 just a week ago on sale

With the official start of Spring only 21 or so days away, it's time to start thinking about 'summerizing' your kit as well as your chosen arms.  It's a good time to launder and fortify your 'water resistant' kit while doing your fit adjustments.  Same with your boots; checking seams, repairing w/shoe goo if needed, etc. Might want to replace your winter items in the ruck, too. Unloading, cleaning, and reloading mags goes without saying, right? Then you might want to confirm your zero on your 'go to' with the summer wear kit on.  Your LOP might be a tad different, as items worn don't have the same insulation thickness factor. I use steel canteens in the winter instead of water bladders so that when (not if) my potable water freezes, I can set the steel canteens near a fire and let it thaw.  Plus, the steel won't split...usually (why I always leave about a half inch of space in the canteen during winter).  So, if you have that practice, might be t

The CDC Itself ADMITS That THOUSANDS Will Die From Covid Shots!!!

Did GOPers Just Agree to Help Dems Desecrate the Confederate Memorial and Graves at Arlington?

Older post - original on 7 July 2020, but very apropos to today's communist activities.  Dishonoring the Confederate War Dead is, in fact, despicable.  May all who favor this smoke a nice, big, fat, smelly turd in hell. H/T Wirecutter & Wisco Dave . Did GOPers Just Agree to Help Dems Desecrate the Confederate Memorial and Graves at Arlington? By  Max McGuire /  07/07/2020 /  Culture War For weeks, we have been warning that the Democrats' attempt to topple statues and rename military bases named after Confederate soldiers was an attempt to erase or rewrite our history. When it comes to Democrat-written legislation, the devil is always in the details. They say that their bill is designed to do one thing, but tucked away in the legalese is a provision or clause that does something completely different. We have read Elizabeth Warren's amendment in  section 377  of the  National Defense Authorization Act  that was just approved by Democrats and Republicans. It would force th

  And I'd be willing to bet that during these winter months leading up to and beyond the 'installation' (not to be confused with 'Inauguration' of a duly elected President), the bad actors (ANTIFA, BLM, BAMN, etc, etc, etc) have been stood down to train, equip, rest, and get ready for mobilization in the communists' push to subdue the former US. David Codrea quickly summarizes the public statements that are similar to a WARNO.  They never, ever do anything without telling us what they're going to do.  They can't help themselves. PS - Make sure you go to Codrea's site.  It's not translating well here.

 If you have a pregnant wife/significant other, or are pregnant, or have a newborn, DO NOT let anyone stick you with the mRNA vaccine!  The mother and baby's lives are TOO PRECIOUS to experiment with as guinea pigs!! From Natural News, here . WHO green-lights mRNA vaccine experimentation on pregnant women and newborn infants Monday, February 22, 2021 by:  Lance D Johnson ( Natural News ) In early January, the World Health Organization (WHO) concurred that pregnant women should not receive experimental mRNA vaccines, due to insufficient safety data. By the end of the month, WHO  reversed its recommendation  and joined the U.S. CDC  in promoting experimental mRNA vaccines for pregnant women . Great Britain is already getting the green light to serve up pregnant women and newborn infants to the altar of vaccine science. Johnson and Johnson have already enlisted their subsidiary, Janssen, to convince pregnant women that they should sign up their body for the new mRNA vaccine studies

Range Cards...Thanks for the Re-Post, Aesop!

From Aesop , per my request.  ESSENTIAL even in urban or suburban areas! If you already know how to use them, this is a great refresher; if you don't, read it a couple times. ange Cards - Re-Post By request from  DTG .   Original  was posted 6/25/2018. Entire Basic Training masterlink list and then some. So, when we left off, you'd gotten yourself into a nice fighting position, but that's just the beginning. Once you've dug in and improved your position somewhat, you need to begin a  Range Card . It's basically a mini-map of your sector of responsibility (and sector of fire, should it come to that) with particular emphasis on obvious landmarks, dead space, and ranges from you to everything you can see. It's your  team leader's  job to tell you three things when you're digging in: 1) Principle Direction Of Fire The PDF is where you should be looking, alerting anyone else of anything notable that happens into view, and shooting at it if anything worth sho

  Here and here . Key Graf from  An Admission to the Lie   Amid the dire Covid warnings, one crucial fact has been largely ignored: Cases are down 77% over the past six weeks. If a medication slashed cases by 77%, we’d call it a miracle pill. Why is the number of cases plummeting much faster than experts predicted? In large part because natural immunity from prior infection is far more common than can be measured by testing. Testing has been capturing only from 10% to 25% of infections, depending on when during the pandemic someone got the virus. Applying a time-weighted case capture average of 1 in 6.5 to the cumulative 28 million confirmed cases would mean about 55% of Americans have natural immunity. It's actually higher because as we know  existing coronaviruses give some measure of protection.   This means we reached the magic 66% somewhere, and right now they're jabbing arms -- but doing so indiscriminately  including people on which the shot is wasted as they already ha

What do the More Modern Warriors think is a workable solution for a 'do all' Ruck?

Before anything, let me say that, yes, I know that equipment/kit should be chosen on METT-TC considerations.  That's a given.   However, the question posed due to considerations the miles and miles of advancement in rifle carriers and rucks even in the last 10 to 15 years.  Say for example, the needs of a team member carrying a ruck. a DSM rifle, and an AR/AK in either a survival or tactical team situation.    There's the Eberlestock solution, from their company located in Boise, Idaho.  They make really great packs; I have one of their hunting packs, and it's really superb! Here's their concept in a picture - a good sized, balanced ruck with a weapons carrier that is mounted and can be dismounted and used as a drag bag if necessary (and they have several models to choose from in various sizes: This particular model is a LRRP capable ruck at 4100 cubic inches in the pack and the weapons carrier coming in a size that will take most rifles outfitted for accuracy.  Weighs
