Buppert: No. Their Cold Dead Hands.

Part I

Part II

Go lift and do both cardio and core today.

Then order Mosby’s book on pistol fighting.

Tonight, as you contemplate the year ahead, resolve your remaining moral qualms, if any, about shooting Reds and their sympathizers from ambush.

Tomorrow, get with some friends and shoot steel with your rifle.

The Reds plan to silence you, disarm you, rob you, and ultimately, kill you.

What’s your plan?

  1. “Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.” – Buppert
    True.
    But Bill illustrates the more singularly evil agenda that is behind the control of arms.

  2. WRSA and Buppert have changed my entire way of thinking.

    thanks Bill and Pete. i am eternally grateful for you two unfucking my mind.

    • Right on.
      In my case, they and many posters / commenters have given my mind confirmation
      and a whole lot of education.
      I wouldn’t be in half the shape I am for the
      coming games. I started reading WRSA on a daily basis, some years back.
      Many thanks.

      Happy New Year to all!

        Word.

        Did not BLOAT…However, did pick up a tasty little Vortex Strike Eagle 1x6x24 AR-BDC and accessories for $240 @ a local shop. 🙂

  3. I appreciate the efforts of those trying to educate others in needed martial skills.
    But, another book?

  4. Bradford C Joy

    “The peaceable part of mankind will be continually overrun by the vile and abandoned while they neglect the means of self-defence. The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside…. Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them; . . . the weak will become prey.”

    ― Thomas Paine

    $55 + $8.99 shipping = 63.99 Arrived in just under a week after ordered from the Lulu.com link.
    My review of the book on the Lulu.com site has the name on my credit card (sigh) but I think it’s worth getting (for the cost of approx. 250/300 rounds of 9mm 115gr FMJ practice ammo and to support John Mosby).
    If you don’t want to buy the book, here is my advice (slightly modified from John Mosby’s) that I would pass on to anyone:
    Buy a good quality handgun in 9mm/.40S&W/.45ACP caliber that you will carry and shoot all the time, a quality holster that you will wear all the time, and practice drawing from the holster and shooting the gun a lot until you can hit a 6″ diameter target at all ranges from contact distance out to 25 yds.
    Also take up Boxing / Muay Thai / Mixed Martial Arts / Krav Maga / Karate / Chinese Boxing / Kung-Fu / so you can fight if you don’t have a weapon or can’t immediately draw your weapon due to the bad guy(s) being on you and wailing away.
    Even knowing you can continue to fight back while getting beat on is worth something. As the bad guys are cowards and usually strike from ambush and so you may start out fighting for your life behind the curve playing catch up.
    Also knowing how long you can fight back until you get winded and drop from exhaustion is worth something. Once you know how good (or how bad) you are at martial arts / hand to hand combatives you can work to improve it.

    • All very good advice.

      Join a gym that fights. Leave the ones that practice in stop-motion. Dry firing is free, and laserlyte cartridges can be had for < $100 and makes a really awesome training tool.

    • Wendy,
      Thanks for the review, and practical advice.
      I recommend, from the exciting times of the 90’s: Jeff Cooper, Gabe Surez, and others.
      Pie plate live fire. Dry fire. Liberty teeth. Realistic practice.

  7. Wendy, wondering, how you carrying you pistol, ? Mexican, right hip, left hip, center back, or,shoulder. Stage your spare ammo, etc etc.
    Also would you please com,met on the holster your chosen.

    Happy New Year!

      I don’t believe I am a good example for anyone, but for what it’s worth…

      I’m somewhat fat and dress frumpy. So I practice what could be called “fat frumpy carry”.

      https://imgur.com/3roBLik

      I carry close to my centerline in front as all martial artists are trained to protect their centerline.
      Less chance of printing if you lean to the other side as with carrying on hip and checking if it is showing simply requires glancing down rather than looking at or patting your side.
      Also the draw is more inconspicuous and your elbow is closer to your body.

      Whereas drawing from the hip it is obvious you are either reaching for your wallet in your back pocket or drawing a gun from a hip holster. Plus your elbow is much farther back and out away from your body. These people who practicing grapple and joint locks love a limb hanging out the to grab onto and trap and twist. Don’t give them that.

      To me with the draw it is Important to get the weapon out and to not let it get taken away from you. One has to be aware of weapon retention from the start of the draw on (rotate pistol as soon as it clears the holster in case you have to shoot at contact distance) and as most people are either going to run away or run towards you when they sense you are going to draw your weapon and use it on them.

      Also important to put trigger finger on slide rather than on trigger as you draw – or re-holster – your weapon so you don’t shoot yourself.

      It’s all a lot to practice but after say 10,000 reps of so most people should get it…

      • Wendy nonsense, I asked you, I knew you would be frank and honest. I appriciate your rational, for equipment choices and locations.

        Thank you,

          Dirk,

          You are welcome. I am glad my effort at taking a few pics and posting some info was worth it.

          Wishing you all the best in the New Year 2019, especially with fixing the health and back issues. I really hope everything works out well for you.

          Aside from that, we all have work to do. There is a whole new year stretched out ahead of us. 365 days and hoping to be in better shape then than I am now.

          Take care,

          Wendy

  8. Wendy,a nice response/writeup,don’t sell yourself short on writing skills.I would say the phrase”fat frumpy carry” is awesome!Your center carry explanation really got me thinking in new ways,will I follow,not sure but will in relative safety of home and range give it a shot(pun intended),Happy New Year to you and all here!

  9. For those of you who would like a little more action. And a lot less disjointed talk. (Yes that is criticism.)
    Go look up This Old Tony and ClickSpring on “You”Tube and learn how to use and even make the tools to make your own.
