How to get shot by the police

August 21, 2014

The young gentleman in this video clearly should have paid more attention to the Chris Rock video I posted earlier:

Holding  a knife while advancing on a police officer yelling “Shoot Me!” is a pretty good way of making sure you get shot by the police.

Glock 42

July 15, 2014

The Glock 42 is a real winner. These were my first 5 shots of the day, and only my second time shooting a Glock 42. It’s safe to say that all of your Glock skills will immediately transfer to this little Glock. This is a half-size IPSC target at 40 yards.

Enjoy!

Suarez International reloading doctrine

July 13, 2014

One of the elements of Suarez International gunfighting doctrine that tends to cause lots of discussion is the way we encourage students to perform their reloads: by default, we retain the used magazine. There are lots and lots of tacticool guys on the Interwebz who favor playing Hansel and Gretel with used magazines, but as WT member Saladin (who has been there and done that) famously remarked during the subgun class in Prescott: “Ammo don’t come in magazines.”

Without a reliable magazine to feed from, your semi-automatic becomes only slightly more useful than a muzzle-loader. I’m sorry if that hurts the Hansels’ tacticool pride, but that is the truth of the matter. Because the Hansels usually misrepresent what we teach to fit their preconceived notions, I figured I’d post what we teach on this blog. I have also added some personal observations on unexpected benefits of following what we teach.

Read the rest on the Suarez International blog tomorrow…
