With the constant information coming in from Istanbul, Turkey and the Ataturk Airport. As well the inevitability of that happening here as the American Jihadists increase their skills and operational tempo, I coined the "Istanbul Drill". The Istanbul Drill teaches us to shoot for the face and neck area as well as to follow up the downed terrorist with additional face and neck shots. Set up two targets. One standing...one already on the deck. Draw and fire a burst of five at the standing target...in the face of course. Instantly transition to the downed target (representing the same guy -...

America is a country of rule followers. For good or bad, that is how all little kids are raised. Perhaps it is to facilitate the first grade teacher's jobs, but kids are taught to sit still, and follow the rules, otherwise, they will get a (gasp) "U" in citizenship. (for unsatisfactory in case you just didn't go to school). Church is much the same way and smily faced pastors parade out the entire "submit to authority" scripture to enforce the "good citizen" thing beginning in Sunday school. Why do I enter the discussion from this angle you ask? After all,... Continue reading

We have a discussion on warriortalk about the integration of the arts. Specifically, Karate as many of our staff have a background in this system. Karate is a thing of the heart and the mind, or as the Japanese say, spirit. One notable Karate man once commented, "Karate is an explosion of life force". Thus to hit a man in the throat with your hand, or to blow his face off with a shotgun down the hall are the same. Those who do not understand this, do not understand Karate...regardless of how many techniques they know or how many stripes... Continue reading

Interesting Times, Complainers, and Your Future The Chinese have a curse. It goes, "May you live in interesting times". I disagree with the Chinese however and do not see that a curse but a blessing. Interesting times bring opportunities. Anybody want to live in "Boring Times"? One day you wake up, 85 years old, bored out of your mind and longing for death. When someone walks up and asks, "Hey whats up?", you will mean it when you say "nuthin much!" No, I think interesting times are great, but the focus has to be revised somewhat from what we have...

The favorite words of the under achievers are "I Can't". And to project their low standards on others, and thus validating their own choices, "You Can't". And then, in order to make those standards the norm, and get others to accept them, they like to minimize the problem. In the age of the parking lot mugger with the switchblade, minimizing the problem was not a concern, because the problem was in fact quite simple. First, if one avoided places and times and activities where their path would cross that of the "thug", they were probably never going to be tested.... Continue reading

I recall discussions with people from former communist countries in Eastern Europe, and I recall in my own childhood, the total lack of information one got from Cuban newspapers. Information is power, and socialist/communist governments always tend toward obfuscation and information control. And so now we have the Redacted/Omitted Transcripts released "officially" on the Orlando Jihad Murders. Earlier we received this - before the official officials got hold of it. This is what Mateen the Jihadist posted on Facebook. Given FB's political leanings, I suspect this is no longer visible. “America and Russia stop bombing the Islamic state..I pledge my...

The Orlando Jihad Murders are proving to be another pivotal event for the American people. We see the legislature blaming aspirin for headaches, we see Obama telling everyone that the killers don't really want to kill anyone and that it was the gun's fault, and the usual crocodile tears while searching for a band aid by the Eloi of America. I find it ridiculous, but I don't laugh about it anymore than we laugh at the same joke told for the tenth time. After the comic element wears off it is simply tiring, predictable, and annoying. An Islamic Terrorist, inspired... Continue reading

I am a rifleman in my heart. I own at least two dozen assault rifles. (Yes, that is what I call them). My company makes some of the most accurate over-watch rifles for US Police CT units that shoot sub-MOA groups. I designed and implemented one of the first urban patrol rifle, and with all of the cross burning by the democrats, I should certainly jump on the rifle band wagon. But I won’t. Oh, I will agree that every able-bodied American with a brain, for true national security, should own at minimum one AR-15 type rifle, but that is... Continue reading

Anything but the truth these days in the Socialist States Of Politically Correct America. So first the truth: The radicalized son of a militant muslim father travels to Saudi Arabia not once but twice (and from there God knows where). He donates $2000 to ISIS...and has a long history of sympathizing with Al Queda and other groups like them. Has multiple other ties to things I am not at liberty to discuss (on a promise to my source). States allegiance to ISIS on the phone with the police. ISIS not only threatened something in Florida, but acknowledged that Orlando was... Continue reading

Its Monday morning and going through my usual news I find all of it dealing with the various issues arising from the Orlando Night Club Murders. And like the expected third act in a circus, the usual suggested solutions by the left. So, as usual, here is my perspective on this and a message to the various groups involved. One cannot ignore facts. And even if the lion devouring the zebra keeps announcing that not all lions will kill you, it matters not, as this particular one is currently doing so. To Muslims who don't want to kill infidels. I... Continue reading

1). We know who did it - a muslim terrorist Omar Mateen, 29, appeared to be a follower of ISIS propaganda and referenced the Tsarnaev brothers, who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, at the scene, sources said. 2). We know the target. And before anyone else says anything off color, let point out that I will not allow such posts here. Just so we are clear on this - I have met homosexuals that were as hard working and capitalist as anyone else. As well I have met "believers" that have been neerdowell thieves and charlatans. If...

I received a great deal of email today regarding the 9th Circuit’s Ruling on Concealed Carry. While I doubt it will affect anyone, there are those who simply must abide by the law or they cannot sleep at night. And the notion that someone is dictating to them that what is clearly not right, is still the law vexes them to no end. I submit a solution, and this solution will work. The problem is that for this to work, many involved will have to get as militant about it as any other special interest group, and stop trying to... Continue reading

I don't normally post links to blogs, but this one created a good amount of discussion at my forum - Warriortalk. I found this on good friend Michael Bane's Facebook page. Read it and tell me what you think the message is. http://handguncombatives.blogspot.co...n-current.html My perspective is below - I think there are some truths there, but they are endemic to modern America and can be seen anywhere one looks. I think the biggest issue however is that most instructors have not developed past the basic level themselves. Not only that but are woefully unfit physically. How the hell are you...

POSTED BY AN LE STUDENT OF THE CLASS AT WARRIORTALK This past weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to attended The Complete Pistol Gunfighting School held in Prescott, AZ. I'm going to change the format a bit of my usual AAR's for those that may be new here or have been here and have yet to attend and meet some of the Suarez International staff. I believe that unless you have some understanding of how they operate, you won't realize the opportunities you're missing when you don't get into these classes. Due to this, and already seeing other... Continue reading

Whenever something new enters the market end users begin comparing it to the status quo. That is good as Choices and Wants are what capitalism and the American dream are all about. And fulfilling those WANTS are what drives commerce and progress and life on planet earth. The Trijicon RMR has been the status quo now for more than six years. But by the admission of insiders at Trijicon, it is a big ponderous machine that changes slowly and react, it seems, always too late to market demands. Nonetheless, the Trijicon RMR sits atop more handguns than any other red... Continue reading

There is an old saying that "the customer is always right". If your only goal is to take their money, then yes...I suppose that is true. But my organization began as an educational group, where ostensibly, the customer doesn't know, and it is our job to educate them. When we began the gear side of the company, that educational ethos was brought over. The bottom line is that the customer sometimes doesn't know what he doesn't know, and rather than attempt to give them what they want, even if what they want is a substandard item, we seek to educate...

I often get questions about which RMR a buyer should add to their pistol. There is no easy answer. It depends on what the end user wants as each has advantages and liabilities. We can divide existing Trijicon RMRs into three groups. First are the Dual Illuminated units. These are comprised of the RM03 (13 MOA Amber Dot), RM04 (7 MOA Amber Dot), RM05 (9 MOA Amber Dot), RM05G (9 MOA Green Dot), RM08 (13 MOA Amber Triangle), and RM08G (13 MOA Green Triangle). They are all within a few dollars of each other, but the Dual Illuminated are the... Continue reading

WORKING THE DUAL ILLUMINATED RMR We have been working with these for a few weeks now. I have been carrying one daily on my Glock 17 to get a first hand idea of the advantages and liabilities of the units. Specifically I am referring to the Trijicon Dual Illuminated RMRs: The RM03, 04, 05, and 08. These have 13 MOA, 7 MOA, 9 MOA and 12.9 Triangle respectively. I am referring as well to the Amber Dot units and not to the Green Dot units. The green do units require a pinkish hue to the glass and we will discuss... Continue reading

When running a red dot on a rifle, like an M4, your head is automatically positioned to instantly pick up the red dot as the rifle is mounted. This is due to the additional points of body contact afforded by a rifle (stock and handguard). A pistol however, does not offer those additional points of contact. You will not use the red dot the same way as the rifle regardless of how tuned your draw is. However, with the traditional placement of the iron sights, sights that the eye has been trained to seek through countless draws in the past,... Continue reading
