I will say yet again, can we get a Commie/East Bloc weapons episode from people who actually served in the Soviet/Russian/Former east bloc nations and actually used those guns in their native environment.
It would be interesting for me to see from a historical perspective for all the gun nerds, and probably useful on a professional level for the .mil guys to see how east bloc weapons are employed and their capabilities as used with a actually military that can actually properly support and run those guns
In one of the more recent podcasts it was mentioned that 5.56 and 7.62 were the past. So how about an episode on the future of small arms cartridges. Is it currently available (6.5 creed, 6.8spc, etc) or will it be something else entirely? Are the polymer cased rounds viable? Or the telescoped cartridges? Jordan mentioned a cartridge in between 5.7x28 and 5.56 for mega city fighting, what would that look like?
So I had a thought earlier today, then was watching one of Aaron Cowan's videos where he pulled out a fucking meat cleaver and well I figure I might as well throw this out there. I don't think this could cover an entire episode, but might make a decent part of an episode perhaps branching off of the similar topic, I'll get into that in a moment. But, the idea was regarding weapons or tools, or even items for that matter, that have or can be used in either none traditional ways, or ways that most wouldn't look at at first blush. My first thought was running off a tomahawk and most people think of it as little more than a ax to kill someone with, but, let's be honest there are other uses, even just from a combative perspective, I can do more than just chop with the damn thing, I can hook, I can poke, I can use the handle if I don't want to strike with the head, I can also choke up on the handle and have a really nasty impromptu set of brass knuckles, and likely a whole lot more I never even thought about. So what about perhaps something on perhaps tools, or weapons, likely your none firearm related items though, that have defensive uses, or techniques, or more uses than just what first glance would suggest, either through design, or repurposing? Again, I think it would be more a section of a episode, than an entire episode, but could be interesting hearing the thoughts on things here.
How to build proper SOPs that do not leave the Officer setting in a room or the back seat of a patrol car for hours in a world of unknowns after an OIS.
Should I carry insurance, pay for FOP Legal Aid, have a lawyer on retainer or all three?
Myths: carrying reloaded ammo, carrying certain guns, having certain accessories
What items may I loose or may be taken for evidence
What if I carry a personal firearm / knife and use it in an OIS or self-defense situation while on duty or off-duty.
It could morph into a discussion for off duty / regular earth guy involved in a shooting
At least in my neck of the woods this topic is never covered. The only way you find out is when you are involved in one. I know certain things are regional, but a good panel should cover a large majority of the general procedures.
