Hard work, Dedication, & Study Needed

Buying a gun is not the same as pulling the proverbial sword from the stone; it invokes nothing more than what it is; a device of varied quality and ease of use that uses a mechanical function to ignite a chemical reaction to propel a projectile. The control of that projectile and any that may follow it is not inherited, it isn’t learned through osmosis, nor can you borrow it from another. That control, often referred to as skill, is personally owned and maintained. Despite what the internet or your close circle of friends may tell you, your gear doesn’t

Overwatch Precision TAC Flat Face Trigger Review

  Before we begin, let’s set some baselines to see if this review will be relevant to you. This was not a scientific, standards based, control group study. It is my opinion based on the things that are important to me. I am a nobody but I train a lot. Here is my story : Lifelong martial artist (TKD, Muay Thai, BJJ), no LEO or military experience (save being an Air Force brat), NRA pistol instructor (who isn’t?). I have received previous training from George Wehby of I4Tactical, Matt Jacques of Victory First, John Murphy of FPF Training, Chris Sizelove

Lifelong martial artist (TKD, Muay Thai, BJJ), no LEO or military experience (save being an Air Force brat), NRA pistol instructor (who isn’t?). I have received previous training from George Wehby of BlackBelt Tactical, Matt Jacques of Victory First, John Murphy of FPF Training, Chris Sizelove of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, Aaron Brumley of Solo Defense, Steve Fisher of Sentinel Concepts, Greg Ellifritz of Active Response Training, Pat Goodale and Wayne Fisher of PFT Training, and private training with Al DeLeon of the State Dept’s MSD unit. I shoot anywhere from 200 to 400 rounds a week. I try to compete three times a month. I train BJJ 2 to 3 times a week. Strength & Mobility training twice a week.

SOLGW: The Final Thoughts Part 2

So here is where I'm going to break down the rounds that I fired through the gun during the review. One important thing to note is, I fired these rounds in no particular order or one brand at a time and the reason why is, I didn’t want one kind of ammo to be a rockstar on a clean gun, but not so much in a dirty gun and I failed to pick that up….with one prime example being the Steel cased Tula Ammo. 1500 rounds = PMC 55 Grain Practice Ammo 1500 rounds = M855 Ammo 1000 rounds =

SOLGW: The Final Thoughts Part 1

So……about 6 months ago P&S was contacted by Michael Mihalski, who owns Sons of Liberty Gun Works, about reviewing one of his turnkey rifles, cause unlike most manufacturers, he wanted to prove his product was worthy and could be trusted. Matt Landfair turned the project over to me and I linked up with Michael about the rifle. Michael stated he wanted to send me one of his rifles along with 5k rounds to do with it what I pleased, just wanting unbiased feedback and a review done. I was like yea cool, I can get down with that. Now mind you,

A Pro-gun Primer on Anti-gun Debate, Part 3 of 3

By Aaron Moyer Welcome back to our three-part series on anti-gun debate, and thanks for sticking with me so far! In Part 1, we discussed the goals of this series and the misnomers of “gun violence” and “assault weapons.” In Part 2, we discussed gun and magazine bans and what people hoped to achieve with them. In Part 3, we’ll wrap up the series with concealed carry, other gun regulations that aren’t widespread bans, and the ultimate goal of gun control.   Argument 9: “Concealed carry is dangerous and leads to more crime.” Not true. Like, at all. Just as

A Pro-gun Primer on Anti-gun Debate, Part 2 of 3

By Aaron Moyer And we’re back with Part 2 of our three-part series on anti-gun debate. In Part 1 , we discussed the goals of this series and the misnomers of “gun violence” and “assault weapons.” For Part 2, we’ll be focusing on gun and magazine bans, both abroad and at home, and their effectiveness, both actual and perceived. Let’s dive right in with every anti-gunner’s favorite gun control case studies: the UK and Australia! Argument 4: “Gun bans were successful in the UK and Australia.” I take issue with the narrative that Australia’s gun-ban was a success. Perhaps at eliminating

A Pro-gun Primer on Anti-gun Debate, Part 1 of 3

By Aaron Moyer As a politically-involved civilian firearms owner, I’ve been in many debates about the role of guns in American society. Every time this happens, I find myself looking for a comprehensive, objective article I can give to my ideological opponents that addresses all of their concerns in one fell swoop -- a one-stop, go-to document that makes the simple and effective case for firearms ownership in 20 minutes or less. To date, I haven’t found it. This time around, rather than getting into a bunch of debates and wishing such an article existed, I decided to make it

Real Threats To Our 2nd Amendment

We don't do political posts on Primary & Secondary. In case anyone wonders, we are extremely Pro 2nd Amendment. A majority of the staff are current or former Military and Law Enforcement. Of those staff members who did not serve in an official capacity, they serve our communities with helping, educating, and being examples of productive gun owners and gun wearers. There are a lot of wasted efforts in the gun world, especially within gun enthusiast organizations. A lot of posturing and a lot of people drawing imaginary lines in the sand against an enemy that isn't as overt as

METT-TC – what does it actually entail?

By Tore Haugli This article describes how METT-TC is used in a military context when conducting mission planning. I will also provide some context as to how the entire order process works. I will limit the discussion to the platoon and the Troop Leading Procedures (TLP) used at the platoon level. METT-TC is also applied at the company level, during the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP). Before METT-TC is applied, some other steps have been taken. The first is that the Company Commander has issued his Operations Order (OPORD) to his platoon commanders. The OPORD is a standardized format that

NINE PRINCIPALS OF WAR AND HOW THEY RELATE TO LE SWAT OPERATIONS

Credit is typically given to Clausewitz for the modern principals of war. I will attempt to break these down as they relate to LE SWAT missions. I did not invent them obviously, but I was exposed as a Sergeant in the Army and during my SWAT career by such prevalent experts as Sid Heal, and many others less known. Some of this will be regurgitating their thoughts since there is no need to re-write cogent and concise thinking. I honestly don't remember where the line blurs between others thoughts and where my own take over, but please suffice to say
