Error 404: File Not Found

…getting experience doing things in practice so if it came time to use that particular technique, skill, etc. ‘for real’ your brain wouldn’t be left saying “error 404: file not found.”

Military, Law Enforcement, & Government Use Only

At the beginning of my law enforcement career, dead center of an “Assault Weapon” ban, I didn’t understand the issue with my access to things non-LE couldn’t obtain legally. It was unfair, but a perk of the job. I didn’t consider what that meant for people who were not me. As I matured I began… read more »

My Navigation of Guns, Gear, & Everything Else

We have a tremendous amount of choices when it comes to what firearms and equipment we can use. To help with my decisions, I use a similar approach to guns, gear, and training as I do with approving companies to associate and advertise with the Primary & Secondary network. It starts with one simple question-… read more »

Carrying Light With Firearms

This is an older picture and some EDC items have changed but the concept remains a constant. There seems to be a misconception that a weapon mounted light is mandatory for edc. I do require them on my in-uniform duty weapons, but there is a difference in tasks and expectations between an on duty police… read more »

Systems Thinking Applied to the Shot Process

In our previous discussion, we were talking about applying systems-thinking to the ‘fundamentals of marksmanship’ in an attempt to illustrate why the fundamentals are not as effective as the shot process. We showed how the Army had been applying detail complexity to what was a dynamically complex system; the individual firing their weapon. Now we… read more »
