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.

Re: A to b steps from sheepdog civilian to federal swat(BORT

Any federal law enforcement agency has the task of saving lives, even suspects. Thats the main idea of having 3 branches of justice. Politicians make up the law, boots on the ground enforce them and judges punish those who deserve. If agents decide to kill anyone it should be for the greater good, ...

Re: Thoughts on karambit?

I don't advocate using a knife to defend against another knife. I'm from the school of thought that says a rock is what I use to get my hands on a club, the club is what I use to get a sword (if I can get a hold of a knife then, I'll create a make-shift spear with the knife on the end of the club), ...

Re: Perfect Example of the SAS Principles

I can defend it. This was an SAS operation. It wasn't law enforcement, it was a military op. As you will no doubt remember, there are different goals for military units as opposed to law enforcement units. No one is named McNab, and they speak murrican. Its Las Vegas PD SWAT units. Considering they...

Re: Recommended night sights for pistol?

I still recommend a light and laser. the light can be used to blind your opponent, and the laser is as usefull as it is intimidating. I use the same at work under a glock/usp and have see many people just drop their weapon while i just flashed the laser. Watch out with strobe lights in the dark, be...

Re: Civilian preparations and training tips for swat

Iamsheepdog, hello I might be able to help out a little... I' m on a federal (3 letter) agency team. The biggest hurdle we see, and I know almost ALL other Fed Teams have the same issue, is lack of casework. Let's use the fake example of the Bureau of land, Sea, and Air. To qualify for their team y...

Re: A to b steps from sheepdog civilian to federal swat(BORT

Go to college, get a 4 yr degree in criminal justice and apply to your local sheriff's department. After you've been there for 3-5 years, with a good record, apply to FLETC (Federal Law Enforcement Training Center). Customs and Border Patrol, DHS, U.S. Marshals Service, ICE, ATF, etc, all recruit fr...
