    Who To Listen To?

    i know what you're talking about and could name some names (but why give free publicity, lol). this would go under the category of "their opinion, and no one else agrees". one also has to keep in mind that some folks will promote brand X, then get sponsored/endorsed by them later.

    Who To Listen To?

    The internet, and the world, is a big place and we’re all guilty of taking (and giving) bad advice. To get a bit nerdy, it boils down to accurate information and data clusters. Let me explain; 1) There are two types of experience: personal and observable. 2) There are a few types of opinions: ones with no experience, ones with differing degrees of personal experience, and ones with differing degrees of observed experience. Some opinions are greater than others. Your local pawn shop and gunsmith dudes opinion is greater than the guy on the

    A Method of Training

    I've been aware of the lightfoot doc for some years now, I'm not impressed for various reasons. I think its a good place to start for those that have no experience. A reoccurring issue is that people are looking to copy the military, we are not the military nor do we have its assets. The private market has surpassed the military in many ways, this is a strength we should take advantage of (and has been the case for hundreds of years https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bl-VnP7rtIo). Another note is how military docs convey simple concepts, they suck at it so why copy the format.
  4. Militias generally lack when it comes to long term mobilization, generally only having supplies for about 3 days. The fix for the basics is have a group standard storage quantity for food, water, ammo and savings. I've noticed most things are probably better left to the individual. I'll go over water for the example; (for the math break down read this https://www.mymilitia.com/blogs/entry/289-food-storage-and-preparedness/ ) A sawyer gravity filter and a jerry can is about $100, this will easily allow one to get water and filter for a dozen people. I think this is a bett

    A Method of Training

    the training is pretty basic. like with anything, you can get as in-depth as you want. as for the war, its already started; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2DQVpkOcclqJWPPiUVKtlmxjVO-b4Ejk
  6. Depending on where your group is, and what your main concern is, will determine your training. In this entry I will focus on a generic group and you can adjust it as needed. I’d like to put forth more emphasis on the method, rather than the actual training. Force de/escalation - We generally have some assertive members within our ranks, as such, we need to be well tempered and deliberate in our words and deeds. Medical - As a service to our communities, medical will most likely be needed rather than a “Wolverines” battle cry. Medical can
  7. while not knowing particulars, these channels offer some more solid recommends; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkyky5zC8R1Gi6YeeCR6BDg https://www.youtube.com/user/concealedcarrytips
  8. very similar to my groups goals. lets all work to enact self sufficiency & accountability!
  9. didnt say anything about 338 not being able to beat armor. (lots of variable, but) bullpups roughly weigh the same. stop with these random af rounds. LEO daily wear is generally to stop pistol threats. citing a new barely used NATO round (that essentially a trimmed down rifle round) is grasping as straws. this is not the forum. this is not a debate. this is for people asking genuine questions of my original post. if you dont like it, disagree with it, or think this is some place to bicker move on.
  10. i feel ya. the only time I would consider it is in an urban area. a tavor would side step all the ATF crud (until we legalize the constitution) while still allowing for indoor maneuverability.
  11. A) rails provide modularity and protection from the heat of the barrel & they can be very light weight. adjustable stocks are better for different body types (and for bulk of carriers/packs) and are only flimsy if one chooses to purchase crap. the "holes" comment rings untrue since they have been in use for decades now on a mass scale, its a non-issue. B) google imaged that, no hits. bayonets were of the most use with muskets (pretty much a club that shot sometimes) todays barrels arent built for it, & i see it as a mute point on a bullpup rifle. generally ppl go to 556,762
  12. Sir,

     

    I was just wondering which units you serve with in the military.  I saw your comment on 'cesspool' and never experienced this in the 82nd Airborne Division.  Our West Pointers were good but our OCS and ROTC Officers were better.

      Yep,  Fort Hood, been there but never served there.  I live in Texas.  I flew the last Huey helicopter on the last lift the day the Army retired that helicopter.  I did, however, know LTG Cone and CSM Arthur Coleman-Army 3 Corps.

       

      Every Army Post I have gone to over the years and speaking to every 82d Paratrooper, knowing by their Combat Patch, is dying to get back to Fort Bragg  All I can say is that you better be able to Soldier in the 82nd or you are gone to a non-Airborne Unit.  The same thing happened in Vietnam within the 82d if an officer or platoon sergeant could not cut it, they were gone within a week or less.

       

      Thanks for responding!

      Airborne!

    Gear Standardization

    yes, to a point. the military can be a toxic cesspool. In my years in the military I met very few good officers, and NCOs were a mixed bag. point being, theyre people too. just because someone has knowledge of a certain thing does not make them good leaders. I get into that here - https://www.mymilitia.com/blogs/entry/261-rolesresponsibility-or-rank/

    Gear Standardization

    to a point. only 1% of the US population is in the military (its speculated that only 3-5% even have the ability to join, but thats another topic), of that 1% a very small part of it is combat MOSs that actually have prolonged combat experience. you can't completely fault people for not having certain life experiences, but they should be open to learning. If youre telling someone to do something a particular way, it is a good idea to tell them why theyre doing it that way, or why we are not doing it there way. hopefully none will have those real life experiences, but training is the closest th
