  4. You could start with a google search. Read, read, read. Several years ago I saw a book on establishing a guerilla unit; from recruiting to conducting combat operations. Sorry I don't recall the author, but IIRC he was a military man (Colonel somebody). There's no shortage of books on conducting guerilla operations. I would start with intelligence gathering techniques and build from there... assuming you have a group already. If not, I'd start with recruitment. Baby steps. Remember that even Guerilla units are bound by the International Rules of War, otherwise you'll be branded as common criminals, terrorists or even war criminals.
  5. Remember in early October when we reported on a Grand Rapids Police Officer who used his cruiser to run down a murder suspect? At the time, the only footage available came from a bystander’s cell phone (see at the bottom of this post). RELATED STORY WATCH: Grand Rapids Police Officer Runs Down Murder Suspect in Cruiser No we have actual footage from the officer’s cruiser cam. Watch the video above. Why Did the Grand Rapids Police Officer Ram the Suspect? The suspect, 33-year-old Adam Nolin, allegedly killed his girlfriend earlier in the day. Michigan Live reported Nolin “killed his girlfriend, Tia Randall, 27, at their Wyoming home before he led police on a high-speed chase and shootout that ended on the expressway, police say.” Police said a vehicle pursuit immediately followed, which led them northbound on US-131 into the City of Grand Rapids. The suspect’s vehicle crashed in the northbound lanes of the S-curve. According to police, Nolin “exited his vehicle holding a firearm and exchanged gunfire with officers.” That’s when the officer took charge with his cruiser and rammed Nolin. According to Michigan Live, that Nolin faces multiple charges, including open murder and attempted murder.

  6. Beretta’s APX, designed in 2016 around the Army’s Modular Handgun System (MHS) contract, may be one of the least known duty/combat pistols on the market today. Rigorously tested with input from both military and law enforcement, the APX is a workhorse. Highly modular, it uses a straight trigger, aggressive treatment on the slide, and a high bore axis ratio for control under rapid fire. Designed to work in the harshest conditions, it is a solid duty or combat pistol. Introduced to the public in early 2017, the APX remained focused on the LE market. Now, the line has been updated with the new Beretta APX Combat. RELATED STORY Wilson Combat 92G Vertec Pistol Reduces Frame Size of Classic Beretta In my testing it has proven to be a true workhorse of a pistol that is soft shooting and accurate, with a factory trigger fitting my needs better than most. Breaking at six pounds, it has a shorter, positive reset with a flat, wide face. Grip frames can be changed out in minutes, while grip straps interchange to fit various hands. The APX also utilizes a robust ambidextrous slide stop, one that is designed to be used as a release, not just a stop. Beretta designed the APX to meet the needs of the warfighter. Beretta’s latest APX, the Combat, adds the versatility of a red dot sight and threaded barrel, providing the ability to use a suppressor or other muzzle device. Red Dots & Muzzle Devices The Beretta APX Combat starts with the proven APX full-sized pistol and adds several features in demand today. Pistol-mounted Red Dot Sights (RDS) are increasing in popularity. The Combat comes with the slide machined to accept locking plates that support several sights to include the Trijicon RMR, Burris FastFire, and Leupold Delta Point Pro. Simply remove the supplied cover plate, attach the appropriate mount, and add your sight. Factory sights enable the use of the front sight, but depending on the red dot, they may not co-witness completely. Beretta planned taller sights for release this coming SHOT Show. Another addition is a threaded barrel, designed for suppressor or other muzzle device use. Law enforcement pistols increasingly use brakes to lessen muzzle rise for faster follow up shots. Threaded ½ x 28, the new Combat will accept brakes as well as one of a number of the latest suppressors. Pistol suppressors are getting lighter, shorter, and much quieter, making them far more useful in a working environment. Many are capable of use with standard sight heights; add the RDS and you can use most any. It broadens the APX capabilities to meet just about any need a shooter has. Built for Duty I have been using the Beretta APX since its very introduction. For a “go to work” pistol it remains one of the best. Beretta designed everything about the APX for use in the harshest conditions and in the worst possible circumstances. The flat trigger enables the best possible accuracy, and it is one of the best offered in a duty-capable striker-fired pistol. An oversized trigger guard accommodates tactical or winter gloves with ease. Purposely designed slide serrations encourage use in the mud, snow or when covered in debris. Non-conventional stoppage drills and reloads can be performed more easily under any condition. Accuracy is very good with unmatched reliability. Without a doubt, the capabilities of the APX Combat more than match its name. If you are looking for a solid and proven pistol designed to work under any and all conditions—one able to accommodate an RDS or suppressor—make sure you take a close look at the Beretta APX Combat.

  7. Fifteen years ago, no one would seriously consider a semi-auto rifle for precision use. We’d spend thousands of dollars trying to get our bolt guns to break the MOA gold standard. It took a lot of effort—blueprinting the action, glass bedding, high-dollar barrels, adjustable triggers, load development. RELATED STORY Gun Review: The Savage MSR 15 Recon Rifle in .223 Wylde But somewhere along the way, we discovered that AR-platform rifles could easily shoot groups under an inch wide without quite so much effort. Softer recoil, quicker follow-up shots and longer service life are some of the other advantages of the AR,or modern sporting rifle (MSR). Enter Savage Arms In 2017, Savage Arms began producing its own ARs. I tested the company’s MSR 15 Recon rifle in 5.56mm NATO and found it to be extremely well built and constructed with the finest materials. The gun was well thought out and assembled with an unusual degree of expertise. Several months after the MSR 15 series was introduced, Savage began rolling out big-bore MSR 10s, and I recently got my hands on the Savage MSR 10 Long Range in .308 Winchester/ 7.62mm NATO for testing. Earning Its Name Designed for precision shooting, the MSR 10 Long Range comes with free-floating, 20-inch barrel, an adjustable gas system and a match-grade, two-stage trigger. The rifle also features a non-reciprocating side charging handle, a Magpul PRS GEN3 adjustable stock and a very effective two-port muzzle brake. Savage engineers started with a fresh page when they designed the MSR 10. Consider the gas system, for example. The MSR 10 is a direct-impingement gun, but Savage outfits the rifle with a gas tube that measures more than 2 inches longer than a standard rifle-length gas tube. This helps decrease pressure. The action can’t cycle until the projectile passes the barrel’s gas port, and the tube’s longer length provides more volume. Less chamber pressure means easier extraction of spent cases as well as a weapon that lasts longer. Shooters can also fine-tune the rifle for specific loads by using the adjustable gas block. A properly gassed gun will run longer, softer and better while reducing wear on the gun. For maximum reliability, Savage designed the bolt to use two spring-loaded, plunger-style ejectors along with a more conventional extractor. The gas key is actually machined into the bolt carrier so you don’t have to worry about it being properly staked. While the bolt has a QPQ finish like the barrel and is serialized to the gun, the bolt carrier body is nickel-boron plated, which adds a degree of lubricity and makes it extremely easy to clean. Also, unlike the AR-15s, the MSR 10 does use a spring-loaded firing pin. “Compact” Savage bills the MSR 10 as having a “compact” design, and the upper receiver is shorter by 0.7 inches. The bolt carrier is also shortened and 17-percent lighter. Of course, less reciprocating mass translates to less recoil, and Savage also installs a lighter buffer that, again, helps minimize felt recoil and reduce overall weight. The 20-inch barrel has 5R rifling, which means it has five lands and grooves that are arranged so they aren’t directly opposite each other, preventing uneven constriction on the projectile. The lands are slightly slanted and less likely to collect bullet jacket material, which should boost accuracy while making the barrel easier to clean. The barrel also has a 1-in-10-inch twist rate and a very effective two-port muzzle brake. I didn’t notice it too much when shooting from a benchrest, but off-hand, I actually found that it was so effective it pushed the muzzle downward. To protect the barrel from corrosion, Savage treats its interior and exterior with Melonite QPQ. Besides making the barrel harder, it also has a lower friction coefficient than chrome. There are also six heavy flutes on the exterior of the barrel, under the handguard. These flutes help reduce weight without losing an ounce of rigidity. Surrounding the barrel and gas system is an aluminum handguard with a full-length Picatinny rail on top with an access port machined for the gas block about an inch and a half from its forward edge. You’ll also notice M-LOK slots along the sides and bottom for attaching lights, lasers, bipods, etc. The upper and handguard are mated with four screws. Receivers The upper and lower receivers are custom forged. Their stylized lines give the lower a decidedly “billet” look, though it is not. There are grooves on the front of the magazine well for those who like to shoot with their support hand in this location instead of on the handguard. There are also indexing cuts at the rear of the mag well to give shooters a place to index their trigger fingers when not firing, and the lower has an integral, enlarged triggerguard. RELATED STORY Gun Review: The Savage Model 10 GRS Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor One interesting feature of the lower receiver is that Savage has drilled and tapped it for a setscrew that, when tightened, eliminates all of the play between the upper and lower receivers. The tip of the screw bears against the bottom of the rear lug of the upper receiver. The pistol grip must be removed to adjust this screw, but, when properly adjusted, it gives the rifle a decidedly solid feel. Finally, a precision rifle is only as good as its trigger, and Savage uses a BlackHawk two-stage trigger on the MSR 10 Long Range. The hammer and trigger are nickel-boron treated, increasing the parts’ hardness and making them incredibly slick. My test sample’s trigger broke consistently at 2.5 pounds and had a very firm reset. The trigger isn’t adjustable, though, frankly, I’m not sure there is anything I would change. Zeroing In For testing, Bushnell provided me with a 3.5-21x50mm Elite Tactical DMR II-i scope. This optic is capable of providing long-range precision without sacrificing short-range capabilities. The scope’s illumination control is integrated with the side parallax focus in one simple knob for easy adjustability. Bushnell’s ThrowHammer lever also makes magnification changes quick and easy. Weighing in at over 2 pounds, the DMR II-i is no lightweight, but I found this first-focal-plane scope easy to adjust and get on target, and its clear and bright optics made shooting from the bench downright easy. Most of my shooting locations were shut down here in southeastern Arizona in early June due to fire hazards, so I took the MSR 10 to a public range in Mammoth with a solid backstop, an awning over the shooting positions and concrete benches. I set my Shoot-N-C targets out at 100 yards, and it became immediately clear that my biggest challenge would be keeping sweat out of my eyes long enough to squeeze off a shot as the temperature was about 104 degrees. Testing the Savage MSR 10 Long Range One of the things I noted was that the MSR 10 produced nice round groups that didn’t show any evidence of horizontal or vertical stringing. I didn’t let the barrel cool between shots, so it got very hot, yet my groups remained constant. I fired several groups with five different test loads, with the best results shown in the accompanying table. When I fired my first group with Federal’s 175-grain Gold Medal Match BTHPs, I noticed that I could fire one shot before getting a click when attempting the second shot. The rifle’s bolt was short-stroking and not coming back far enough to strip the next round out of the magazine. By turning the adjustment screw on the gas block counterclockwise, I was able to get the MSR 10 to cycle perfectly with the Federal rounds. These rounds also produced a tight five-shot group measuring just 0.89 inches. But the 168-grain Federal rounds printed my tightest group of 0.87 inches. In the end, the Savage proved that it was capable of producing sub-MOA groups with all five of the loads I tested. One of the most impressive features of the MSR 10 Long Range is just how light it is on recoil. The gun is incredibly easy on the shoulder, and the felt recoil wasn’t what I’m used to with AR-10-style rifles. The MSR 10’s innovative gas system, compact bolt and muzzle brake make a great deal of difference. The light and crisp trigger, with its firm reset, also makes it easy to get back on target quickly for fast follow-up shots. Final Thoughts While Savage Arms might be a latecomer to the modern sporting rifle party, its MSR 10 Long Range displays some brilliant and innovative engineering that sets the company apart from all the other “me-too” manufacturers. This rifle is accurate and easily adaptable to different types of ammunition and missions. If you’re looking for a long-range precision rifle, make sure you check it out.

  9. I think I would have to agree. While it's vitally important to have transport available, it may not be a good idea to have a dedicated motor pool... for a couple of reasons. I guide everything by this one adage: the more stuff you have, the more stuff you need to maintain. Since militia will likely be the "target" of any operations when things head south, you don't want to have to defend a fixed installation from a superior force. As hatchet said, if you are readily ID'd as militia, you'll become a target for all kinds of unwanted attention. Lastly, as I see it, there's no sense pouring resources/assets into a fixture you will be forced to abandon sooner or later. Having said that, your logistics/combat readiness could be well served if you had a "transport committee/team" that ORGANIZED the resources of the unit. Each member of the team would make sure that (designated, individually owned and dispersed) transport was working and available for use by the unit. You could even allocate funds for that purpose if available, but verification would need to be made as to condition/serviceability of the designated vehicles. Priority-wise, I'd probably put it fairly far down the list, since there are bound to be more pressing issues for the unit as a whole, and most everyone will already have their own transport.
  10. Hopefully my state can do some good for once by losing this battle in the Supreme Court!
  11. Windward side, Oahu. Pretty fresh to the idea of militias. Would like to see If I can mesh well with one if we have any on the island.
  12. Without unity in common thought or mission, every militia will break apart. One mission of a militia needs to be doing tasks as a team, even if it is just pizza on a Friday night. Everyone will go their own separate way without a sure bond that the fellow militia member (and his family) will protect their backs when things go sideways.
  13. Assessing and discussing your mobility is a necessary thing with proper prepping plans. If everyone has a working vehicle with spare parts and spare fuel, that is a huge step in the right direction. Not every militia is going to buy surplus humvees and other military vehicles. One aspect to consider is blending in with the local population. A military looking convoy is great for the warlords, but bad if the group of people is trying to navigate unsecured terrain while avoiding drawing the attention of others.

I would say approach them as any other organization you are interested in possibly joining, with appropriate caution and open mind. It's not the name so much as it is the people actually in the group in your area that is important, the ones you will be interacting with on a personal level.

    The or day while I was teaching a shotgun class, I happen to have a gentlemen in class that approached me at the end of day one and introduced himself as the state Commander for the Watchmen of America. We got to talking and I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of them before? He informed me that there was a group of them around a few years back, but they eventually broke up. I've been doing some research and I found a few mentions of them as well as their web page. Was just wondering if anyone has any insight into them?

  22. A member of the North Carolina-based Winston-Salem Police Department has his body camera to thanks after a recent incident nearly led to his firing. RELATED STORY WATCH: Columbus Police Officer Draws Pistol on 11-Year-Old With BB Gun The incident in question took place on Oct. 5 when Winston-Salem Police Officer Tyler McCormick arrested a 14-year-old girl, identified as Rockell Baldwin. Winston-Salem Police Response The incident began when Baldwin skipped class, waiting to fight another student, according to multiple reports. Faculty called McCormick, the school’s resource officer, who quickly responded. The video shows Baldwin exiting the school and walking through the parking lot, repeatedly ignoring McCormick’s command. He says “stop” a total of 17 times. After grabbing Baldwin to talk and get her back into the school, she becomes combative and continues to struggle; that’s when McCormick brings her to the ground and places her into handcuffs. Post-Arrest Response Along with the video, the Winston-Salem Police Department released its finding of the incident. “As a result of those investigations the Winston-Salem Police department use of force investigation involving Officer McCormick has been closed with no policy violations regarding use of force,” Assistant Chief Natoshia V. Miles told the Winston-Salem Journal. “… If Ms. Baldwin would have changed her behavior at any time in that 1-minute, 26-second incident she would not have been placed on the ground.” McCormick was grateful for the body camera. “When we first got them, it was a little uncomfortable because it records everything. Sounds, too,” he told the Winston-Salem Journal. “I was a little apprehensive, but after wearing it for a short time, I knew it was only going to help me later on in my career.” Critics immediately called for McCormick’s firing initial cell phone video of the incident surfaced. However, even they had second thoughts after the release of the body camera footage. “I think it was a premature call — to call for Officer McCormick’s job — without first seeing the facts. So I am grateful for the transparency of the police chief, our city officials, our district attorney — and everyone who has pushed for the facts to be shown,” Pastor Todd Fulton of the Ministers Conference Of Winston-Salem told WFMY2 News.

  23. Low power variable optics (LPVs) are nothing new, but they have slowly gained a following among the AR crowd. RELATED STORY Running the BCM RECCE-16 at Defoor Proformance Shooting Definitions vary, but generally, LPVs are riflescopes with adjustable 2X to 8X magnification. Many LPVs only have a bell at the ocular lens and a straight tube with a consistent diameter to the objective lens. Some variations have a double-bell appearance of a high- magnification optic in a shorter, smaller profile. Within variations used for tactical applications, most shooters prefer an adjustable daytime-visible dot at the center of the crosshairs. Reticles vary from a simple pair of crosshairs or a single German-style center post to complex ranging and holdover patterns. Advantages of Low Power Variable Optics Their styles and configurations may differ, but low power variable optics offer AR shooters several advantages. First, like long-range tactical scopes or hunting scopes, most LPVs are built with coatings that gather light and can amplify and filter ambient light to provide magnification and longer durations of visibility. This allows you to better identify threats at greater distances in more lighting conditions and with greater accuracy than via the naked eye or through a red-dot sight. Also, these scopes are adjustable for conditions and the shooter’s vision. Whether because of age, genetics or variations in your eye, such as astigmatism, an LPV can be adjusted at the ocular lens to compensate for visual deficiencies of focus or night-vision issues. What About Red Dots? So if low power variable optics are so great, why wouldn’t everyone throw their red dots away and immediately mount one on their AR’s rail? Setting cost aside, the red dot has the advantage of being immediately intuitive. There’s the target. Put the dot over it, and press the trigger. The learning curve is brief and simple. There are also arguments of speed. Some believe LPVs require more effort to gain a sight picture at close range and therefore slow reaction times. Kyle Defoor, of Defoor Proformance Shooting, disagrees, however, as his personal experience — and that of his students — indicates there’s no reduction in speed. “Typically, a lack of speed between the optics is a training issue. Specifically, it’s a mounting and setup issue,” he said. “Students forget to use the true 1X and daytime-visible red dot at close range or adjust the magnification at varying distances. Some forget, don’t change it, don’t change it correctly or stay on max power too long. The only drawback I have seen is that some students complain after three days of having a slightly heavier rifle. But ultimately, a red-dot sight is suitable to 200 yards in perfect lighting—realistically about 100 yards given varying conditions of light, weather, smoke and other factors. LPVs give you excellent target identification and accuracy out to 400 yards.” Other Factors RELATED STORY Why Cops Should Increase Their Versatility with Low-Powered Optics The most legitimate criticism might be weight. An LPV is bigger and requires an equally larger mount. Some combinations can add almost 2 pounds, compared to less than a pound for a red dot like the Aimpoint Micro T-1 and its mount. Ruggedness is also brought up, as many red dots have made a living on torture tests. That might be a fair assessment, but many Special Missions Unit assaulters have been running LPVs for years in the most austere environments. True, all LPVs are not the same, and budget is always a factor, just as with a red dot. Things to Consider So if you’re on the fence about changing your current RDS setup, consider a few questions: Are you more likely to use your AR in a close-quarters home-defense scenario than in an open environment? Can you confidently and accurately engage the targets you expect to encounter with a red dot? Are your eyes and visual acuity static enough to the point where you wouldn’t need an optic with some adjustment capabilities? Would an extra 10 to 12 ounces on your weapon system significantly affect your ability to perform to expectations? Defoor’s Setup If you answer no to one or more of these questions, you might want to consider an LPV. Your life and those of your loved ones might be on the line. But to help you further, we asked Kyle Defoor what features he looks for in an LPV. Deefor said he looks for a true 1X setting, a mil reticle and turrets, a daytime-visible red dot with a locking on/off switch, a quick-detach mount like those from Bobro, and either a first- or second- focal-plane reticle, but the former is better beyond 6X magnification. “I run a red dot rather than a green one,” Defoor said. “It’s a personal preference from 20 years of experience. I run simple mil hash marks or a mil-dot. I leave more complex reticles for big scopes and ranges outside of 800 yards. For most classes, I am running a Nightforce or Vortex Razor HD with a Bobro extended mount. I have also found an H2 buffer to be a simple all-around replacement that lets my rifle consistently feed and cycle no matter the barrel length, load or setup, unless you’re getting into subsonic rounds and larger calibers.” And when it comes to the current market offerings for low power variable optics, from top shelf to bargain buy, he recommends the Nightforce 1-8x24mm ATACR, the Nightforce 1-8x24mm NXS and the Vortex 1-6x24mm Razor HD Gen II.

  24. The Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous is a great opportunity to get hands on multiple firearms in a whirlwind of three days. A ridiculous “spread” from Daniel Defense — including several entries from the Daniel Defense DDM4V7 lineup — was on my radar from the get-go. RELATED STORY Where Does the Daniel Defense DD5V2 M-LOK Rank in Its Arsenal? Then there’s the MK18. The opportunity to run a full-auto, suppressed, MK18 does not happen very often. I think I can speak for everyone in saying that a good time was had by all. But that’s another story. Back to the DDM4V7 lineup. DDM4V7 Origins The DDM4 series is Daniel Defense’s workhorse in 5.56mm. The manufacturer also offers .300 BLK options under the its DDM4 category. The DDM4V7 is the first Daniel Defense rifle to feature the M-LOK attachment system. The DDM4V7, like all DD rifles, features a Mil-Spec lower and upper receiver machined from 7075-T6 aluminum. A mid-length gas system provides a reliable operating system under harsh conditions. Daniel Defense has long been known for its hammer-forged barrels. The DDM4V7 has a 16-inch government profile barrel, while the LW model has a 16-inch lightweight profile barrel. Daniel Defense hammer-forged the barrel from Chrome Moly Vandium Steel. It is Chrome-lined with a 1:7 twist. The 15-inch M-LOK handguard is free floated and offers improved cooling and ergonomics from older style rails. Finally, Daniel Defense equipped the rifle with its own buttstock and pistol grip. Daniel Defense DDM4V7 Series: DDM4V7 Pro Rattlecan The DDM4V7 is now available in a new finish called Rattlecan. Rattlecan is a hybrid paint scheme that is a blend of Daniel’s proprietary Tornado and Mil Spec colors. The pattern is best described as a combination of honeycomb and scales (see above). Daniel Defense brought the DDM4V7 Pro Rattlecan to the 2018 Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous; the Pro version has an 18-inch “Strength to Weight,” cold hammer-forged barrel. Daniel set the test rifle up with a Vortex Optics Strike Eagle 1-6X24, which was the perfect optic for the event. We were able to easily engage targets out to 400 yards. The new color scheme was both attractive and, in my opinion, ideal for both field and an urban operating environments. Daniel Defense DDM4V7 Series: DDM4V7S and DDM4V7P Two other hits at the 2018 Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous were the DDM4V7S and DDM4V7P. Both feature the same quality components as the regular V7. DDM4V7S The DDM4V7S is a short barrel rifle with a 11.5-inch barrel. It is basically an upgraded M-LOK version of the legendary MK18 rifle fielded by the United States Special Operations Command. It’s similar in that it’s an SBR, though the MK18 does have a 10.3-inch barrel. The sample on hand for the Rendezvous was a select fire model and we all took advantage of the “fun switch.” The experience was made much nicer by the addition of the Daniel Defense WAVE suppressor. The DDM4V7S is a favorite of both military and law enforcement. It is a great addition to anyone who collects NFA, Class III items. DDM4V7P However, for this writer, the DDM4V7P stole the show. The DDM4V7P is essentially a pistol version of the DDM4V7S. It has most of the same features including the M-LOK rail. However, the DDM4V7P has a 10.3-inch barrel instead of the 11.5-inch found on the DDM4V7S. The most significant difference is the addition of a SB Tactical SOB Pistol Stabilizing Brace, which enables the DDM4V7P to be designated as a pistol. The sample at the Rendezvous also had an optional LAW folding brace. The combination makes a very compact package without having to be restricted by NFA regulations. Daniel Defense continues to be a leader in the industry and these new products have been well received. If you can, get your hands on one of the offerings in the Daniel Defense DDM4V7 series.
