Re: Another shooting-Las Vegas

He "researched SWAT tactics": http://www.news.com.au/world/north-america/las-vegas-gunman-acted-alone-studied-swat-tactics-before-deadly-attack-report/news-story/ae070fc4a1b261658b6b01ed09aa188a. Possibility that he used or found this forum? Possibly but, I think it more likely that he went to that...

Re: The Daniel Shaver Case

Yup. Brailsford screwed the pooch there. I'm wondering how much time he had in LE besides his 2 years with that department...? He seemed wound a bit tight.

Low-tech terror makes sense logistically. It's a strategic choice. It also makes recent terrorist events seem more random, requiring less planning and 'shady' activities.
Agreed.

Another shooting-Las Vegas

Stephen Paddock, 64, shot and wounded at least 200 at a concert on the Las Vegas Strip, Oct 1, 2017, killing 50. This will no doubt reverberate throughout the U.S. and provoke another discussion about civilian ownership of firearms.

Re: Best pistol cartridge dillema

but do you wear a IIIA vest and a sidearm with 2 extra magazines every hour you are awake? Weight matters, in my opinion, and personally I havent seen polymer framed pistols fail because of their polymer frame. I believe the current generation of polymer framed pistols are just as reliable als full...

Re: Best pistol cartridge dillema

I carried the P-220, in the Army, for over six years, on extended deployments, in a thigh holster. For the last 13 years, I've carried the same firearm, a different P-220, in another thigh holster. I guess it all depends on what you're used to. I'm not partial to polymers.

Re: The Carry

Have you trained to perform the tactical drag on someone that has been injured and you're trying to get them clear before they bleed out? It can take a lot of effort, especially if they're unconscious and unable to assist. You can easily choke someone by doing that if their vest isn't properly secur...

Re: Thoughts on karambit?

I think that you misunderstood the meaning. A dichotomy is a contradiction in action. An EMT who practices CQB is one example. A doctor that gives out health advice while doing the exact opposite in their own life would be another example. How about a fictional character? Hannibal Lector from the mo...

Re: Best pistol cartridge dillema

.38 can over penetrate, depending on what your backstop is. I've always liked the Sig P220, personally. 10 rds in the magazine .45 caliber. I'm a Sig guy, though. Nothing else handles like a Sig, for me.

That rear carry handle can help choke someone who didn't have their plate carrier tight enough.

You also were an ems... funny what kind of people want to discuss cqb combat.
