Fighting in a low light setting is one of the most demanding things you can do, let alone with a firearm. It requires alot of things to be done right and for you to be very proficient. This means that you must practice and constantly challenge yourself. If there is anything I have learned in my time of fighting in low light and training in low light, it is that there is no one thing that is universally applicable. Darkness will complicate everything and adding in having to use and be mindful of other gear, in addition to your gun, adds to the complexity. There are a few basic things that are necessary and vital to effectively fighting at night, and I want to go over them briefly.
Pistols that come out of Turkey are one of my newest lusts and interests. There are several reasons for this and I look forward to revealing these reasons. Also, I would like to look at the pistols I have had experience with and explain why I feel they are worthy candidates for a spot in your safe.
When .40 caliber first came out, it was apparently the coolest thing since sliced bread. It was powerful, offered a new type of effectiveness on a human threat that could not be matched well by other calibers, and Law Enforcement was jumping to it all over the place. Lately, people have started abandoning the caliber in favor of the 9mm for perceived improvements in bullet performance and technology. I will refrain from talking about caliber and getting into the debate on performance and such. My focus here will be whether the .40 caliber is a suitable round for combat or if the world got it right with the 9mm.
The SCCY CPX-2 is a popular pistol in the lower price range. For 200 bucks, people are able to snatch one of these babies. SCCY makes alot of these guns in house in Florida. They constantly upgrade the components to improve durability, reliability, and quality control. But the question today is if this pistol is the best gun for your money as alot of people have felt?
It has been a while since I last wrote on this blog. Things have been crazy in my personal life and I am finally getting my groove back and getting content out there for my awesome viewers and readers. For today I have a few subjects to cover such as practicing to get your proficiency back on point, reloading lessons, and an update on the SAR9 from Sarsilmaz.
It is a common interest for those wanting to carry concealed to want a compact pistol. Their size is easy to conceal and most of them on the market are pretty easy-going on the recoil. However, it is also a common theme for these people to get sucked into standards that are niche and unnecessary. I want to explore some of these using the firearms displayed in the featured photo. This is not meant to promote or sell any brand or type of pistol, but to help people understand the real story behind these different types of compact and subcompact firearms.
In many of the videos on YouTube, you might notice that the reviewers lay their MRE contents out on a tray as if it is to be a cafeteria meal instead of a field ration. This is quite odd considering that many of these folks actually have used them in the field in the military. My goal is to discuss how you will typically find yourself using an MRE when you use it in the field like in the military. Before I write about this, I think we should start with a bit of a backstory on the history of how the MRE came to be.
In the modern gun world, the evolution of pistols has reached extremes incredibly fast. Todays' generation of shooters have judged pistols like the Sig P239 to be outdated. Merit, history, and capabilities seem to have been pushed aside in favor of capacity and size, as well as weight. It is a generation of extremes that I was a part of for years. Only through experience did I have a realization that perhaps I should question the validity of these views.
What is the importance of accuracy? Well, it depends on what you are trying to do. If you are trying to qualify on a paper target, being able to hit inside a certain area will be good enough. If it is in competition, as long as you skim through and get your hit, it is all good. In combat, connecting with the torso is the name of the game. All of these scenarios could benefit from more precision of course, but perhaps there is a problem with people understanding when they are being accurate and when they are being precise.
The minuteman concept has been a staple of the American way of life since it's development and even prior to that. The concept is that a man can be ready to defend his home, his town, and his freedom at any time by taking up arms and fighting alongside his neighbors. This effectively is the concept behind a militia, with the militia being a more organized unit with a certain task and readiness level. In this segment, I want to discuss the differences in the philosophy and between a militia and the minuteman. I personally think that the differences are important enough.
