“Those who sweat will die” – old Eskimo saying. Having proper clothing for cold weather is an important pre-requisite for conducting cold weather operations. Understanding why we dress how we do, and how to dress correctly, is equally as important. Before we go into detail, we need to cover some principles at work. There is… read more »

Cold Weather Operations

**This is a primer for a series covering some concepts involved in cold weather operations.** Working in a cold weather environment will have a significant effect on operations, affecting everything from training, TTP’s, equipment, planning and logistics.

Fight the Narrative

Misinformation is easily spread about people who are concerned about rights- gun rights especially. The opposition to these rights can say about anything they want because they control the narrative.

Too many people think this is a standard for which to strive. What is fun about stats are the averages and the important outliers. I personally cannot predict… read more »

The Secrets of Effective Low Light Room Clearing

I’m going to share the secrets of effective low light room clearing. Now remember, these are a secret – they are also according to me. The following secrets will stop you from blinding yourself (not that that’s a real thing) and also will help stop you from shooting people that do not deserve to be… read more »

The Totality of the Circumstances

There is a concept called “totality of the circumstances” which seems to be lost on most. What it means is considering all factors that play into a situation.
