Systems Thinking and the Shot Process: Why the ‘Fundamentals’ Don’t Work

Recently, I’ve been exposed to Peter Senge’s ‘The Fifth Discipline; the Art of the Learning Organization. Senge (2013) asserted that there are two types of complexity: dynamic and detail (p.71). Before 2015, the United States Army had been using detail complexity to help explain what is a dynamically complex task: Firing a weapon in combat.

I wanted to get this review done and out there sooner than I have, and for that I have apologized to Russell. Moving a bit slower has allowed me to run it in almost… read more »

Gear Review: Bootleg Adjustable Bolt Carrier
