On my blog and on my channel, I started out just looking at gear and doing discussions on related topics. This chapter I am going to be starting has to do with guns and gear, but in a way that provides a big picture. I have always enjoyed war history. The fighting we have done since the beginning of our existence can tell us alot about how to avoid the same mistakes. In war, there are so many variables that have an effect on the outcome. I am hoping to dive into a few examples of what kind of things can determine an outcome.
When it comes to finding affordable and functional military surplus clothing that is used, it can be a bit of a gamble. This shirt is no exception, but I think it surprised me with how functional it was, despite the fact that it was a bit worn. This shirt is a lightweight combat jacket that was previously issued in the British army for hot weather climates.
Physical conditioning for combat is not something I would take lightly. I know plenty of people who think they will simply rise to the occasion when it comes time to fight for their life. However, the first time they have to hump gear or do any real work, the excuses flow about why they can't keep up. All these movies showing people shooting and moving at a sprint pace is not something these individuals just picked up and started doing with ease. Even when they are in the middle of sprinting in their gear and manipulating their weapons, they are pretty well fatigued and fighting to maintain awareness and concentration on the fight. This requires lots of physical training, repetition, and coordination. If you want to be conditioned to fight, there are a few things you will need to keep in mind.
I know we have all heard the discussions about pistols and how one is better than the other. You may have even heard old gramps talk about his trusty old .45 that saved America from a million commies. But one discussion that can get as heated as the caliber debate is what pistol is the best one to bring into combat. What would be the best combat pistol?
