November Training Update

GOING GREEN

In the future, students need to bring a Thumb Drive of 64G or larger to class to download the class information. Instead of wasting money/time and resources on DVD’s and cases, I will have a multi-port USB attached to the classroom or shop computer that allows students to do a quick transfer to their USB.


GENERAL

VOTE and Stand By!

This Election is about two ways of life. Our traditional “American” way of life that promotes the liberty of the individual over government and all the good and positive things that go with it.

The other is that of undisciplined power and control by those who do not have the self-discipline to control or master themselves.

These two ways of life cannot coexist.

The Democratic Party has been taken over by revolutionaries. Short term, it started with the moral decay of the Clintons who handed the continual downslide to Obama. These actors set the stage.

These “Revolutionaries” use the propaganda of oppression to rally the ignorant in our country to strike out against the current government. Instead of being thankful for the opportunities that America provides, they are weak-minded self-serving individuals who lack the tenacity required in life to self-improve and to help others.

How do they implement this perceived inequality? Simple, through a tyrannical and oppressive government who redistributes wealth and who will kill religion and the family unit as we know it.

The Left attempts to make us feel guilty for having a higher moral code and standards. Organizations such as BLM, Antifa and others are the action arms of this movement.

As an American, I feel blessed to be born into this great country and understand it is a country of success born of struggle. Nothing worthy is gifted. This included freedom which we much work for and understand how it was born and how it needs to be maintained. Our education system has dumbed these learning points down, if not eradicated them.

Many conservatives have become lazy and complacent and have transferred wealth to their offspring without the work and life ethic needed to maintain a healthy nation. Much of the time, human nature is to seek the path of least resistance, but it does not temper our personal steel. We must do things that challenge us and temper us to improve and shape our character.

We must help retake our government by Term Limits (start with 20 years) and address the educational systems in our country by refocusing them on what is important. Currently we use our colleges as a dumping ground for misfit professors who spew their contempt for our country to the next generation. Much work needs to be done. It all starts with your vote…

LE CORNER/TRAINING

Hang tough as we will be back on track shortly, one way or another…

WEAPON FAILS

1 x Gen 3, Glock 19 with after-market firing pin and slide parts. Just a note, Glocks work just fine as is….


HUNTING


I liked the performance of the 300 Ham’r, so I bought one in the “Protector” series. Once I get it broken in, it will be my one go-to gun.

Bill Wilson recommended the 135 Grain SP Bonded for the shorter barrel instead of the 150 Grain. It does a great job and there is instant and massive blood. All these pests were DRT, one shot stops.

I put an ALG trigger in it so all my tactical guns have the same triggers as my hunters. The Wilson Combat Trigger is a fine trigger and many folks like it for their hunting platforms.


The above was a large male, mangy coyote on sniper hill. If I bring it, they will fall…

The pigs are tearing me up in the bottom and we are continually having to do tractor work to fix their rooting.

This was another good-sized pig that I caught in a group eating acorns. I wanted to see how far it would run with a behind the shoulder shot. He only ran 20 yards.



EQUIPMENT



I bought and rigged out this Wilson Combat Protector just like a my 16” rifles. I put the Burris 332 on it, an Inforce single battery light, Tourniquet and modified hand stop on the right side. It puts the pigs on the ground. I also have a hand stop on the right front of the rifle.

New LE/Action CSAT Target SR-21-1


SR21-1

I have asked the folks at LE/Action targets to produce the above target which should be available shortly. I wanted a higher aim point for a kill zone which can also be scoreable for competitions.

This target can be used for Rifle or Pistol. It can be used to zero irons, optics or pistol Red Dots.

While I will still use the standard CSAT for Qualifications, I will practice on the above target to help shrink my group size down.


We used the target for rifles zeroes in a recent Tac Pistol/Tac Rifle class. These are the prototype and the production will be the standard color of other CSAT Targets.


Knife Sharpener

This “Smith’s” Sharpener is my go-to knife sharpener. I have bought and used most “fast” sharpeners out there. For a quick edge, this what I use.


KNIVES


The “Orcas” are 7.5” overall with a 2.75” blade.

The steel is AEB-L stainless.

The handle is G10 with a fine texture.

The finish is an acid wash/tumbled. Available by clicking the pro shop link on the combatshootingandtactics.com page

or going directly to csattss.com


For information check out @bcbladeworks on instagram or BC BladeWorks on FB. You may also email bcbladeworks@yahoo.com for questions or special/group orders.

These are my personal favorite and can be carried right or left, canted, straight up or down and deliver tremendous stabbing or slashing power. They fit my hand in a solid and continuous contact, both front and back. Finally, they stab, slash and cut extremely well.


RANGES

The temps are starting to break and as soon as the ground temp changes, our mowing will stop. We go into fixing stuff from there.

BOOK REVIEW

“WE WHO ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN/UNTOLD STORIES FROM THE BAND OF BROTHERS” by Marcus Brotherton

Most of the time big name authors take the stories they feel are important and leave out other really good stuff. This book details more fact that paint the full picture of the “Band of Brothers.” I am still working on it.

I enjoy reading the personal stories of the “average Joe’s” who waded into the enemy and took it to them wholesale.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the range.
