Re: Pistol retention gone WRONG or how Sul isn't safe

Good article by a great guy. Kyle is a humble, non-egotistical student of the art. I use the SUL position when the situation calls for it. While "looking for work" it isn't possible to NOT sweep other unless the muzzle is pointed down. SUL accomplishes that. Once "work" is found - then go to low rea...

Re: Why is the M4 so popular?

The SCAR is pretty nice. It is balanced incredibly well. Recoil impulse is different than an M4 or an AK. Controls are completely ambi - which I really like. Very reliable. I would take into harms way with zero reservations.

Long answer: My experience is that is also depends upon the situational environment, What I mean by that is when operating in .mil or as a contractor in a combat environment with men that have honed skills, mindset and tactics - running safety off is no big deal. However -...

Re: The Laymans Primer to Movement

It dovetails nicely with the .pdf you posted. http://tireironscorner.blogspot.com/2010/03/move-vs-manuever.html cheers t...
