  1. Good video, I’ve seen it many times. Good analysis by MVT, though one point I’ll make is that MVT states the SF soldier was clearing the shack by himself, which is not recommended. This is true, it isn’t recommended. However, the SF soldier didn’t mean to be doing it alone. He sort of had no choice at that point. His ANA buddy got taken out of the fight when his weapon got wrecked.

  2. Friend of mine had an AD in his house with a 12 gauge pump shotgun. 00 Buck went entirely through the wall made of wood slats and plaster. The pellets stuck in the opposite wall on the other side of the hallway. It looked like a big fist punched through the wall. It was an old pump shotgun. He jacked a round in the chamber and it appeared to “slam fire”. Inner walls are not cover. I, er, He no longer has that shotgun.

  3. My home is bulletproof – inside n out. 🙂

    If it is not recommended , why do so many practice it
    at their Sunday IPSC pistol competitions ?
    36rd count w/2 mandatory magazine changes, ridiculous.
    LOL !

    And how many of you have fired your SBR’s inside a small room?
    Here’s a classic example of shock wave overload, for both the ears and eyes. Be prepared for such.

    • Indeed. My home defense rifle wears a suppressor. Shudder to imagine shooting it indoors without it.

    Oh, the bliss of our brave “global police” troops (we know what’s best for you motherfuckers) spreading more of our intoxicating “freedom and democracy” to the natives of sovereign countries.
    That karma’s coming back to this country with a vengeance…maybe it already has. We deserve it. As you sow, so shall you reap.

    ROE will not be nearly as stringent when one’s family is on the line. My uncle said that during WWII he nor any of his guys ever went inside a house without first tossing in a grenade or 3. Nowadays they have our troops acting like LAPD. Wonder how many have been needlessly KIA/WIA due to such bs?

    • The ROE vs Deplorables will not be so restrictive. Killary has no interest in winning hearts and minds in CONUS.

    • They pretend to want you to come out, by setting your wooden structure on fire with incendiary “smoke” or “irritant” bombs.
