Mosby - Heresy: An Introduction to Combat Riflecraft

Combat riflecraft is not a sport. It’s not a game. The fighting rifle is not, contrary to the whining pleas of the morally bankrupt, a “sporting arm.” It is, like an axe, a tool, specifically designed and engineered for one purpose. The axe is designed to chop wood; the fighting rifle to kill people. The fact that the axe is sometimes used for sporting applications such as lumberjack competitions or axe-throwing does not change it’s fundamental purpose–nor the fighting rifle.

Good stuff.

Part 2: AAR – SUT/Patrolling/Logistics Course – April 19-22, 2013


In Part 2 I will discuss the TC3 aspect of the class. Part 1 of the AAR can be found here.

The most important lesson about treating combat injuries is this:

The best medicine on the battlefield is fire superiority!

You don't treat anyone until the fight is over. You stop the enemy from shooting at you either by killing them, or forcing them to flee. When it is safe, then you can attend to the injured. If you have to move an injured person, you move them while continuing to engage the enemy, and if the injured person is able to do so, they should be engaging the enemy while being moved as well.

Without going into all the specific details of TC3 (Tactical Combat Casualty Care), I'll discuss the hands on portions we covered. You can download a copy of the US Army TC3 Handbook for all the nitty-gritty details. However, don't rely on this alone...without the proper hands on instruction, you won't understand the context and could end up doing more harm than good. Get trained first!

First Mosby went through everyone's IFAK to make sure they had the proper gear. Not everyone did. He had the list of required items listed on his blog. Make sure you have what's listed when you attend his class.

He showed us the HALO Chest seal for sucking chest wounds and discussed its purpose and proper use. During this portion, he also discussed the proper use and application of the 14 gauge ARS for Needle Decompression when treating a life-threatening tension pneumothorax.

The first thing to do for an injured person is to stop life-threatening hemorrhaging if tactically feasible. This is accomplished, in most cases, with your handy-dandy CAT tourniquet. Make sure you have the real deal and not the cheap ineffective knock-offs. You keep tightening it until the blood flow stops. Leave it on.

The class was instructed on the proper usage and application of the CAT. We were timed on getting one on ourselves as well as getting one on our partner. Untreated arterial bleeding will kill you in less than 3 minutes and you will lose consciousness in 60-90 seconds, so arterial bleeding must be stopped ASAP!

The proper use and application of gauze to stop bleeding from a gun shot wound and promote clotting was discussed. Students were taught how to properly dress a wound using an Israeli Battle Dressing. The debate on using Celox or Quick Clot impregnated gauze basically came down to preference. Even regular gauze works just as well if properly packed into a wound. One concern with using Celox is that it contains Chitosan, a shrimp shell derivative that could be fatal to someone with a shellfish allergy.

The importance of ABC (Airway, Breathing, Circulation) was discussed.

An effective airway must always be maintained. If the patient is unconscious or risks going unconscious, a Nasopharyngeal airway (NPA) insertion will be necessary. If this is not an option, due to severe maxillofacial damage, move on to a surgical cric. (this is beyond the scope of this AAR but was discussed in great detail)

A couple students volunteered to allow a NPA to be inserted in their nose.


I won't go into the details of how this was achieved because I'm not qualified to teach this and I'm not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. But suffice to say, it was not a difficult procedure to execute properly although it was humorous at times.

As you can see in the illustration above, the purpose of the tube is to provide and artificial airway in the event that the natural airway becomes blocked.

Afterwards Mosby discussed the proper way to start an IV in the event of, or to prevent  Hypovolemic shock and even allowed 2 students to actually attempt it on himself. What other instructor would ever do that?! The man is dedicated!

If you have an injured person that has a high probability of not surviving, even with medical treatment, don't treat them. Do what you can for pain but don't waste your finite resources on treating a dying man.
"It's called triage. It's is a mother fucker, and it sucks...but it's necessary."
- Mosby Maxim #35 -

Mosby recommended that we get the Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook along with a good human anatomy & physiology book.

In a SHTF scenario, you may have to rely on yourself for medical treatment. Get the books now and get familiarized with it. Practice conducting a surgical cric on a chicken neck. Practice suturing on a chicken breast. Shoot a roast and practice packing the hole with gauze and bandaging it.

Get medical training and Practice! Practice! Practice!

A good place to start would be to enroll in a CERT class near you.

The sooner you get trained, the sooner you'll be ready.

Part 1: AAR – SUT/Patrolling/Logistics Course – April 19-22, 2013

One day after class ended, I’m finding it difficult to disseminate the sheer volume of information that was presented. It was like quenching your thirst with a fire hose at full blast.


This will be a little bit different than my previous AAR. I won't be going into the details about what we did as much. Instead, I will try and share what I learned that hopefully will be beneficial to you. I'm going to break this up into parts as well.

I would like to thank the host of the class and his wife for allowing us to use their land for training and for providing us with 3 delicious square meals a day. That allowed us to get in more class time by not having to stop and prepare our own meals. In addition, it tasted light years ahead of any MRE. It also provided ample opportunity for creating a stronger team cohesion as we ate around the campfire.

As has been previously stressed, PT before hand will help tremendously. This time around, my endurance was much stronger and I was able to recover very quickly. Do PT. It does make a difference. Also not eating Wendy's Chili Cheese Fries the night before helps as well.

The SUT portion of the class was a more condensed version of the previous SUT class I attended. However, despite this, Mosby was able to teach the same information.

Things learned via observation and demonstrations:
  • Don't use the digital pattern ACU's if you can avoid it. Mosby doesn't call them I SEE YOU for nothing.
    • In a side-by-side comparison against natural terrain, ACU digital did not blend. You'd be better off wearing earth toned street clothes.
       
  • Don't show up to class with every item of your gear, from your hat to your boots, in black.
    • You can't hide well dressed in black, day or night...you end up looking  like a Tactical Timmy.
       
  • Secure your CamelBak at the bottom so when you dive for cover, your forward inertia doesn't cause it flop on top of your head and over your eyes, obscuring you vision.
    • As hilarious as this was to observe, in a real life situation, this could get you killed.
       
  • Make sure the ruck you use can also hold your sleep system.
    • Attaching your sleep system to the bottom of your ruck ends up hitting you in the back of the legs as you walk and causing a shift in balance with every step that you have to work harder to counter-act in addition to slowing you down.
       
  • Make sure you purchase a quality ruck that won't burst at the zipper
    • A busted zipper tends to allow your items to fall out as you patrol.
       
  • 3-point slings are a hindrance
    • Going prone with a 3 point sling slows down your target acquisition.
       
  • Don't take your Ranger Buddy's word that his chamber is empty. VERIFY!
    • Twice, a round was found inside a supposedly empty chamber in someone's rifle. Make sure you remove the magazine before racking the slide to empty the chamber. Then have it independently verified.
       
  • For training purposes, wrap a strip of neon colored tape around your magazines
    • I did not and lost a full magazine. Someone else did and found theirs.
       
  • Keep your bolt carrier wet to prevent malfunctions.
    • A couple of rifles started to malfunction regularly due to the muddy/dusty conditions until a liberal amount of oil was applied. Clean your rifle in the field whenever possible.
       
  • Paint your rifle
    • It's a tool. Paint it to match your surroundings and break up its shape. Krylon - $4. Black rifles pop out and are very easy to spot in a field environment due to their un-naturally straight lines.
       
  • Ditch the sunglasses.
    • They reflect the sun like a beacon for the enemy, and are easily identifiable even if the rest of your face is not.
       
  • Use camo face paint liberally.
    • Break up the shape of the human face. The human face is extremely easy to identify. Reapply as necessary throughout the day.
       
  • Boonie hat trumps baseball cap.
    • Baseball hats are easy to identify due to their un-natural rounded shape. Boonie hats allow for the attachment of foliage to break up the shape of the human head.
       
  • When stalking, slow movements on your belly are best.
    • Mosby was able to crawl up to our patrol base with out being detected despite our best efforts and 360° security. In our defense, it was dark.
       
  • Stay in the shadows and use micro-terrain to navigate.
    • When the patrol signals to stop, move to the shadows, don't stand in the open.
       
  • Don't be afraid to modify your equipment if it will make it work better.
    •  Those of us with leg holsters learned how to modify them to ride up closer to our hip, thus allowing easier access to our sidearm. Ditch the top strap and shorten the drop strap to make the holster sit higher.
       
  • If you can hide from human eyes in daylight, you can hide from NODs at night.
    • NODs are not magic. Hiding from them is easier than trying to hide from eyes in the day.
       
  • Rain ponchos come in handy.
    • A short rain decided to stop by. Ponchos kept us dry. In addition, they can be used to construct a shelter.
       
  • Cold weather sleep systems really work.
    • Make sure your sleep system works for cold weather.
       
  • A Casualty blanket can come in handy.
    •  If your sleep system is not adequate, you can wrap a casualty blanket (reflective side in) around you to reflect your own body heat back on yourself.
       
  • Dig a hole, crap in it, then cover it up.
    • Some person(s) apparently didn't know, or didn't care about basic field hygiene methods for disposing of your crap. Not only was this unsanitary, and evidence of your presence for enemy units to locate, it was disrespectful to the land owner.
       
  • When contact is made, ditch your ruck while prone.
    • A ruck on your back in the prone makes you easier for the enemy to spot you and kill you. Practice getting it off in 5 seconds or less while prone. It can be done.
       
  • When going prone, pay attention to where you will land.
    • A few people landed on cactus. I happened to land on spot that pushed my magazines on my war belt up into my ribs as I landed. Cracked two ribs. Be careful, but be quick.
       
  •  Practice. Practice. Practice.
    • Your speed will improve as well as your movements and proficiency.
       
  •  Bigger isn't always better.
    • There were three .308 rifles in the group, which meant more frequent reloads and less lead being thrown downrange at the enemy.
       
  •  Always look around to see what your team is doing and communicate.
    • The lead patrol team failed to notice the other patrol teams signal to stop and kept on marching.
       
More later, as time allows.

Bill To Be Introduced: Background Checks for Black and Smokeless Powder Purchases

Selco On Surviving A Bomb Blast

Boston - April 15, 2013
Imagine this:

Last thing that you remember is that you were standing with few of your friends in street, now you are laying on ground and looking around you and there is blood running next to your leg, there is something in your throat and it suffocates you, you are trying to remove it with your fingers but nothing comes out, you are trying to swallow it but it is of no help, you are trying to scream but nothing comes out of your mouth. And thing that scare you most is that you notice blood on your pants in groin region, and you think that all future fun is gone.

Your friend gets you on your feet and his mouth are moving but you can not hear sh!t. With his hands he is explaining you that shell exploded some 50 meters from you and your friends.

You are (hopefully only temporary) deaf from blast, you can not talk because blood in your throat because you bite your tongue when that thing exploded. “Luckily” blood running next to your leg is not yours, it is your friends , he is seriously wounded.

And that wet stuff running down your legs and on your pants is not your blood, you just lost your bladder control when detonation happened. It happened unconsciously not because of fear, you did not have enough time even to feel fear.

And then (thanks God) you pass out. Everything starts to hurt later.
 

This all happened long time ago, but I still remember everything like it is happened yesterday, or like it is happening everyday. I feel very sorry for those innocent killed people in Boston.

I feel sorry for wounded too. Even when they recover they will be wounded for the rest of their lives.

Few times people told me that my experiences are war experiences and they are not applicable to some future SHTF scenarios. Horrible event in Boston clearly shows that you do not need to be at war to have civil victims because of explosions.
Go to Selco's site and read it all.

These events will happen and they're not always the result of terrorists as the town of West in Texas suffered today.

Me and WyoThreeper were discussing the Boston bombing and after seeing the bomb blast amputations, we agreed that adding a C-A-T tourniquet to your daily carry kit would be a good idea.

Stay safe.

Welcome To The Last Days Of The Constitutional Experiment


Let us quit pretending that socialism is something with which one can get along, because it isn’t. It is anathema to anything an individual who values his or her personal liberty believes. The two cannot coexist. Ever.

Media SOP: Blame The White Tea Party Right Winger


Before the smoke could clear in Boston, the media was already blaming the angry white Tea Party Right Wing Extremists for the bombings.

SOP for the left-wing media.

They did at Sandy Hook. They did it in Aurora. They did it for Gabrielle Giffords. They did it when Andrew Joseph Stack III flew his small plane into an IRS building, and they did it for others.

And in each case, they were completely wrong. And when the truth came out, they went silent on the matter instead of condemning them as they first did when they maliciously reported them to be Tea Party Right Wing Extremists.

This is what dictatorship countries do to smear the opposition. This is the stuff of a state run media.

EXPLOSIONS AT BOSTON MARATHON: Dozens Of Injuries Feared

source: https://twitter.com/theoriginalwak/status/323871871730864128/photo/1
There are multiple reports on Twitter of an explosion at the Boston Marathon.

 
We spoke to a Boston Police Department Spokesperson who said there was "some sort of incident at 671 Boylston Street", which is the finish line for the race. They could not give out further information at the time of the call.
 

Live video from CBS shows ambulances at the scene. Fox News reports that there were two explosions, while the Boston Herlad reports that the explosion seemed to be centered in a 'trash can'.
 

Reporters on the scene are reporting dozens of injuries and lost limbs. TV crews are showing images lots of blood on the ground.
 More info at the link here.

First suspects that come to mind are the Booger Eaters, as friends in the sandbox like to call them, and a .gov false flag, in that order.

Prayers for the injured.

Hurrican Katrina: Military Snipers Engaging U.S. Citizens?


This opinion editorial from SOFREP refers to 'rumors' and 'I heard from so-and-so' statements.
In early 2012, I had an unexpected conversation with my friend Chris Kyle (author of American Sniper) about the Katrina debacle. I had heard rumblings about Special Operations snipers being deployed to New Orleans to support the effort to restore order. He confirmed the rumors and shared his own intimate knowledge that close contacts of his, many active duty Spec Ops snipers (some Navy SEALs), took leave to work for the controversial PMC (Private Military Company), Blackwater.

Chris went on to tell me that the bulk of the guys he knew directly had racked up over thirty kills between them. I asked him about Rules of Engagement, and asked, “Who were they shooting at,” and he just gave me a big Texas shrug and smile. I figured out really quick that it was 180 grains of due process (usually to the head at 200M).

I would hope that none of our SF teams were participating in taking out U.S. civilians. From what I've been told, the only ones who would most likely to participate in this type of activity would be Delta Force. Although others can't be ruled out. Remember Waco?

Anyone out there who can confirm if any of this actually occurred? Preferably from someone who was there with boots on the ground.

Something to think about when the SHTF, either natural events or man made events.

All Your Children Are Belong To Us - Part 2

Remember Melisa Harris-Perry's MSNBC promo spot where she says:

h/t Matt Bracken for the graphic.

It ignited a firestorm on the interwebs,  TV talk shows and radio.

Well, she's doubling down and not backing away from her statement. Her latest statement:

“This isn’t about me wanting to take your kids, and this isn’t even about whether children are property. This is about whether we as a society, expressing our collective will through our public institutions, including our government, have a right to impinge on individual freedoms in order to advance a common good. And that is exactly the fight that we have been having for a couple hundred years.”
She devoted an entire show to this topic. Video below. It's long and boring and will make you yell at your monitor but this is what we have to deal with.



Skip to the 4 min mark in the video to get to the point.

She doesn't see anything wrong with what she said. Of course not. She's not alone in her thinking. This is the direction they commie infiltrators are steering this country towards.

Need more evidence?

Take a look at our public schools. Condoms, birth control pills = good. Bible, God = bad. Social Justice = good. Individual responsibility = bad. Collective thinking = good. Individual thinking = bad. etc.....

Oh did I forget to mention she's a professor at Tulane University? Figures.

It's for the children.

All Your Children Are Belong To Us

Stalin is smiling in his glass encased tomb.



Collectivists: "What's yours is ours, that includes your children."

Let me introduce you to Virginia Prodan. She's lived it. Below are her comments regarding that video clip.
WOW!

The last time I heard that my kids belong to the community/ government was in Communist Romania , many years ago!

Romanian Dictator Nicolae Ceausescu believed that in order to extend control over our kids ; better control the parents ; Romania and the future generations!
 
I stood up against the dictator Ceausescu! www.virginiaprodan.net
I fought against him; I declared and considered my children mine, took responsibility for their own education by teaching them the truth about communism and its lies, teaching them about God, taking them to church and raising them as responsible and truthful children!

Yes, I paid the price for that - I was considered by the Dictator a trouble maker, frequently interrogated by the government; called many times at school as my kids told the teacher and colleagues the truth; put under surveillance; Later I was put with my children under house arrest and after year of fighting, exiled to America!

Today this is happening in America?

We Must stand up for the Truth! Our children are God's gift to us! They belong to
Us! We are responsible to raise them as responsible, God and Country loving future leaders!

Stand up, fight and refuse the Socialism / Communism ideology and propaganda spread by the liberal media in America Now!
Yes Virginia, unfortunately it is happening in America today.

Remember what happened to Ceausescu?

We can only hope the same happens here.

Colorado Sheriff's Respond To Obama's Visit Yesterday

Yesterday, the Communist in Chief stopped by for a victory speech on the recently passed anti-gun laws that were railroaded through the Commierado legislature and signed by his butt-puppet, Gov. Hickenlooper.


Below are some of their responses to the Obamunist's visit yesterday.





Reach out to your Constitution supporting Sheriff's. Let them know you will be there to help them if push comes to shove with the Feds. Form your alliances now. Local. Local. Local.


TL Davis: That Magical Moment


Verbatim from TL In Exile:

That Magical Moment


It is very simple: the resistance will not be organized. There is no way to get people together on anything at this stage and there aren't many more stages left.

Obama is "constrained" by the Constitution. He considers that wrong, but we know that constraining people like him is the whole purpose of the Constitution. Of course he feels constrained by it, he is supposed to and so is everyone else in a position of immense power. He is constrained by our rights and so has done everything he can to obliterate them.

We have sat around and moaned about it, planned, prepared and little else. I don't know about anyone else. All I know is that if something is going to get done, it will have to be done alone. One person doing a remarkable thing is how it must happen.

The rights they are bargaining with are mine and mine alone. If someone else's rights are violated, it doesn't bother me that much. Yet, when I fight for mine, I fight for everyone's.

This is not the last of it, it will only get worse and worse. They will take more and more individual rights until the only rights left will be those of the state.

That is where it stands right now. It will take some magical moment to the get the great wave of public sentiment on the side of individual rights again. I don't know what produces that magical moment. If I did, I would do it.

It is time to fight back. I am not a leader or I would lead others. All I have ever been able to do is lead myself and that is exactly what I am doing now.
As long as people still have jobs, food, and entertainment, I don't think mass organization will happen until the SHTF.

This doesn't mean you should site back and do nothing. If you have started organizing already, then you're ahead of the curve and will be in a better position later, when the S does HTF.

Have a plan if you end up going at it alone.

Denver Cops, Colorado Sheriffs, Not Happy With Obama's Planned Visit


Some Denver cops are not happy with the planned use of Denver police officers as a backdrop prop for Obama's victory speech on gun control today.



Below is one cop's feelings he posted on Facebook.
My name is John Akins. I am a Denver Police Officer and have been for 13 years. I am proud to protect the citizenry of the Mile High City and feel satisfaction when I provide criminals in my city with a full and complete experience in the criminal justice system. Today I feel shame in the decisions of our department leaders. Today, President Obama and Governor Hickenlooper are going to use the Denver Police Academy as a prop to push a political agenda. I attended the Denver Police Academy and graduated in the very same converted aircraft hangar that the speech will be given in. That hangar, the badge hanging on the wall, and the officers standing in the crowd will now be forever attached to the agenda of a political party and it’s push to strip Americans of their rights.

Our department issued an order that officers will not give opinions on the gun control debate in an official capacity. (See disclaimer below) Our command staff and city government then permit this speech to happen. Not only do they permit it, they condone it. Officers will be able to attend this political function while on duty. As a pro-2nd Amendment police officer I have asked previously if I can stand with my fellow patriots in defense of the Constitution while in uniform. The answer was always a resounding no. I asked if I could stand with the NRA and RMGO as they protest this speech and try to protect our rights in our city and do it in uniform but on my own time. I was told absolutely not. Then why is it acceptable that officers can stand in support of anti-gun agendas while on duty and in uniform? This speech will attach the stigma of anti-gun rights support to Officers in the Denver Police Department. It will serve as a clear indication of bias by the mayor of Denver and the command staff of the Denver Police Department.

I would encourage all citizens, pro-gun rights and anti-gun rights, to talk to police and sheriffs about these laws. I listened at the CELL and in legislative testimony as representatives of the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police, a body of politically appointed leaders, argued for these measures. I listened to testimony of the County Sheriff’s of Colorado, a body of elected leaders, as they argued against these measures. I encourage you to talk to police officers or sheriff’s deputies you know. Find out what they think of these laws. Find out what side of the issue they are on. The Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police does not speak for all police officers when they support these issues. Likewise the County Sheriff’s of Colorado do not speak for all deputies. My personal experience is that the majority of officers and deputies support the 2nd Amendment and Constitutionally guaranteed rights. I for one can’t believe that we are passing these laws when our current laws against violent crimes have such an abysmal prosecution and sentencing history. Please, before you condemn Officers to the anti-gun right agenda talk to them to see what they think. I encourage my friends, family, and fellow patriots to send this letter to those that would label the police as anti-gun.

I did attend the Denver Police Academy. I was taught to uphold your Constitutional rights. All of them.

John Akins 01046
Disclaimer: This letter does not represent the official beliefs, policies, or procedures of the Denver Police Department or the City of Denver and is in no way representative of same.

Some Colorado Sheriff's are planning a press conference shortly before Obama's speech to criticize the unconstitutional anti-gun laws that were recently passed amid cries of outrage and protests by Colorado gun owners.

Even though these 'laws' easily passed, due to party line voting and a democratic majority in both houses, enforcement of those laws doesn't look like it will go as easily.

Now the Denver ethics board is going to examine the role of uniformed officers as props during President Obama's visit.

Continue to resist!

HiViz Shooting Systems Leaving Commierado - Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


CONTACT: Jeff Maust

HiViz Shooting Systems

Fort Collins, CO 80524

HiViz Shooting Systems Announces Relocation Plans

April 1, 2013, Fort Collins, CO—HiViz Shooting Systems (a division of North Pass Ltd.), announces plans to relocate operations out of the state of Colorado due to recent changes in Colorado state gun control legislation. HiViz President and CEO Phillip Howe, states that talks are currently under way with officials of a neighboring state regarding the move.

Mr. Howe comments, “I make this announcement with mixed emotions. Colorado is a beautiful state with great people, but we cannot in clear conscience support with our taxes a state that has proven through recent legislation a willingness to infringe upon the constitutional rights of our customer base.” Mr. Howe notes that prior to the changes in law in Colorado, he made several attempts to persuade state officials via emails and telephone calls to proceed slowly with gun control legislation that would impact individual shooters and the shooting industry as a whole.

Although the relocation will be expensive and time consuming, he adds, “It is in the best interest of our company and our customers.” Starting with corporate headquarters, the operations will be moved over an extended period of time ensuring no interruption of services to its customer base, and HiViz states that the majority of its employees will make the move with the corporate operations. More details regarding the location and timing of the relocation will be announced as details are finalized.
