Crowd Control

Arctic Patriotat The Arctic Patriot- 5 hours ago
Let us think really hard about this.Military used as crowd control at a college football game.If idiots want to riot and hurt each other over men chasing a piece of leather up and down a field, let them.Let uninvolved citizens take appropriate measures to defend themselves, as well.What does it say about a society where crowd control is needed to keep people from going full retard at a football game?That's not the main point though. Let them go full retard. Let the idiots riot- these idiots would do very well to keep away from my family and property, though.Questions:D...more »

Combat Studies Group

Arctic Patriotat The Arctic Patriot- 6 hours ago
I must've drank an extra cup or two of stupid/lamebrain recently (please hold comments until the end).I have previously linked to, and thought I added the Combat Studies Group website to my blog list. Well. I sure didn't, for whatever reason.I have now fixed the problem, and CSG's site is on the blogroll.I highly recommend that you make that site a daily stop.Really.It's run by a good guy with "IRL" experience.

Further Thoughts

Arctic Patriotat The Arctic Patriot- 6 hours ago
I wanted to say something I left out of this post from yesterday.I talked about an op in that post, and used it as an example of using the basics as a base level of common understanding and proficiency that allowed the team to act choesively when "the plan" went to crap.Because plans, in real life, *always *go to crap.In fact, I can't think of a time when a plan *ever *went according to plan when I was an NCO, except in a classroom-type environment. In the field, plans are just frameworks. With American soldiers (and people), knowing the commander's intent and having the basics...more »

Dark Arts for Good Guys: The .22 LR Pistol and You

Ironwill IIIat Resistor in the Rockies- 15 hours ago
Walther TPH .22LRThe .22 LR round is often overlooked and passed over in favor of 'man-stopper' rounds.Through personal experience I will say this: I do not ever want to get shot with one again.Once upon time I spent a week with a retired CIA spook who was kind enough...well actually he was paid, to give me some training in electronic counter measures, lock picking and a few other

Am Merc: Rodriguez's Tale

Arctic Patriotat The Arctic Patriot- 16 hours ago
American Mercenary's story continues, here.An education through fiction.Lots of comments have come through about this continuing story.A few things about it pop out at me.People aren't perfect. I don't think AM is trying to lay out the "perfect" flawless execution in these vignettes, but instead I think they have many lessons in them if you pay attention.In my humble opinion, he's not using this story as a "what I would do" platform, but rather as a tool for teaching.It is, in my opinion, effective.I could be wrong though.It boils down to this, in my opinion.

III Arms: For anyone keeping score...

Kerodinat III Percent Patriots- 17 hours ago
...and I DO keep score... Point: III Arms. Here's more at the III Arms blog, follow Miller there and at the Facebook page. Well f'n done to all involved. Have a blast at Brock's PatCon, and my thanks to the folks at CADD. Not sure exactly when I'll get to post again, so to all who have been posting and commenting at the III Arms and Citadel blogs, keep 'em coming! Even though Holly and I are in the middle of nowhere at the moment, and will spend the next few weeks on Citadel stuff, we do get to read the posts and comments, and they are great. KerodinIII

The inability to walk a straight line which first showed up at the Gun Rights Policy Conference is getting worse. Might be an inner ear infection, might be something worse. Going to the doctor tomorrow to see which.

Soldiers these days need less muscle and more maturity, so why do we still focus on recruiting 18-year-olds?

And this is just a little blip.

Telescopic Baton Recommendation?

Hi FerfalCould you recommend a good collapsible/telescopic baton and an online place to buy one? I live in Europe ThanksNicHi Nic, telescopic batons are one of the defensive tools I’ve seen catastrophically fail the most, both using it myself and in the hands of others. The cheap ones? Absolute garbage. The somewhat more expensive ones? Garbage that lasts a couple days more at most.The only telescopic baton I would recommend is the ASP. If you cant afford an ASP just got for a regular stick or tonfa. Again, just don’t buy the cheaper collapsible batons, they break on deployme...more »

Max Velocity Tactical- Countering Aerial Thermal Surveillance

Arctic Patriotat The Arctic Patriot- 1 day ago
*"Much as I would not like to contemplate our own assets being used against citizens, there are theoretical situations where such knowledge could be useful. However, never assume an enemy has an all seeing ability and just give up. Friction, assets and battlefield clutter, plus human error, comes into play. We survive in those gaps."*From this piece on countering aerial thermal surveillance.Good stuff.I spent three years at Ft. Drum playing OPFOR for a squadron of OH-58Ds.It's not easy, but is can be done.Survive in the gaps, as Max says.*Resist.*

Fighting the Fight- Not the Plan

Arctic Patriotat The Arctic Patriot- 1 day ago
I thought, for a long while, that warfare could be categorized into different “generations”. While I understand the intent of doing this, and what is meant by different “generations” of warfare, I have a few counter-current thoughts on the subject.I think that it may be the case that differentiating between “3GW” and “4GW”, we are still, in our Western minds, leaning heavily on doctrine and fixed dogma when it comes to warfare.Problem: war is probably the epitome of fluidity.There is room for doctrine, in my opinion, in the martial realm. There must be, in my experience, SOPs, or...more »
