    "Tactical Training Scenario- Violent Car Jacking Attempt
    Posted on February 28, 2019 by Greg Ellifritz in Tactical Training Scenarios
    [​IMG]


    Written by: Greg Ellifritz



    I was scanning my online news feeds yesterday and found this interesting account of an attempted carjacking. Read about it at the following link:

    Cowardly carjacker brutally punches woman, 62, knocking out several teeth

    It was almost one a.m. when a 62-year old woman parked her car in her apartment parking lot and began carrying her groceries inside. An unknown suspect stalked her from behind, got her attention, and then punched her in the face when she turned around. The punch dropped the woman to the ground (knocking out several teeth). The attacker attempted to take the woman’s car keys, but quickly aborted the attack and ran away as a security guard approached the scene.



    Watch the short video below. Caution for extreme violence.






    The extreme level of violence that the robber uses makes this one an interesting video to dissect. Most “normal” people are completely uncomfortable with this type of savagery. If you can’t bear to even watch the video, how would you be able to successfully defend yourself if you were the robber’s next chosen victim?




    Note the process….



    1) Target assessment. The criminal is assessing his likelihood to get rich, whether or not the victim will fight, and whether or not he will get caught by police or good Samaritans. Her judges that she would make a good victim and he wouldn’t likely be caught or hurt in the attack.



    2) The movement patterns to silently exit his hiding place, rapidly approach the victim without being detected, and gain her attention as soon as he gets in attack range.



    3) The violent attack intended to make her unconscious so that he can take what he wants without any chance of resistance.



    This attempted car jacking could have been prevented at each of those stages. It’s up to you to properly time your resistance efforts and come up with a strategy that matches your skills and abilities. Here are the questions to ask yourself:




    -What would you do to reduce the chance of being targeted? How do you “fail” the attacker’s interview? What physical actions can you take that might make a potential attacker think twice before choosing you as a victim?



    -How about when the mugger begins his predatory movement patterns? At what point should you begin to to counter your attacker’s predatory movements and begin aggressively maneuvering on him or making an escape?



    -What about if the attack has begun? Could you defend yourself physically? Could you access a weapon?



    Most of you reading this article will ignore the first two questions and immediately jump to the third. I know a lot of you would say “I’d just shoot him”. I have no problem with that response. The problem happens in the decision making process. At what point will you recognize the fight is on and draw your gun? How are you going to get to it quickly so that he doesn’t foul your draw or take it away from you? Do you think you can still draw and shoot after taking that big punch to the face?



    The woman here had less than a second between the time she noticed her attacker and the time she was hit. How is your sub-second draw from concealment when carrying bags of groceries in your hands?



    What’s the solution? The solution isn’t cutting 2/10ths of a second off your draw speed. The solution isn’t spending a year in a boxing gym to learn to take a punch. Although both solutions are beneficial, the true solution here is in recognizing the attack and preventing it. If you can avoid going toe to toe with someone like this robber, you’ve already won. Focus on answering questions one and two. Those will give you the greatest return for the amount of time you will invest.



    This woman’s best chance of avoiding the attack is to take notice of the attacker during his target assessment or movement phases. Learn from her mistakes.

    – Do you ever drive around the lot before parking to assess any potential threats?

    -Do you park in a manner that reduces your chance of being victimized?

    -Do you scan for threats before exiting your car and regularly when walking to your destination?


    -Do you have a weapon in your hand or easily accessible when walking through potential attack zones late at night?



    Most people don’t get it. The average person expects that criminals will have the same sense of compassion and morals that “normal” people have. In my experience, that usually isn’t the case. This video shows an example of that. Violent criminals have made a choice to commit a crime. The criminals will destroy anyone or anything that interferes with their payoff once the attack begins. You have to stop the attack before it starts. Recognizing the pre-attack indicators and acting before the attack commences is the best way to win this game.



    Don’t expect your attacker to have any mercy. Don’t expect help from any passersby. Study the problem. Do the work."

    "Big Punch, Little Package: The ‘Diablo,’ A 12GA Muzzle-Loading Pistol from American Gun Craft
    by JORDAN MICHAELS on FEBRUARY 14, 2019

    [​IMG]
    The Diablo is the first muzzleloader from AGC that uses a single trigger and hammer design.

    Old school handguns have made a comeback in recent months (the King Cobra!), but the ‘Diablo’ from American Gun Craft takes that trend to another level.


    With a twenty-first-century take on an eighteenth-century weapon, the Diablo features two six-inch polished nickel smooth-bore barrels that can be fired independently using a selector on the hammer. It uses a conventional 209 primer breech plug design, and AGC recommends a 1/2 ounce shot with 40gr of FFG.

    As a muzzle-loading firearm, the Diablo does not require a background check before purchase and can be shipped directly to the customer’s home address.


    American Gun Craft calls it the “legal-to-own answer for the modern sawed-off double barrel shotgun” and “quite possibly one of the most powerful handguns ever made.” They recommend the handgun for home and auto defense and claim it “offers the best close quarters deploy-ability of any shotgun.”

    The Diablo weighs 25.6 ounces and measures 10 inches in overall length. American Gun Craft offers grips in a Midnight Black or Brazilian Rosewood finish, and the sight bead can be shipped installed or not.

    AGC offers the Diablo with black or rosewood grips.

    [​IMG]
    AGC also offers a magnetic mount that can be affixed in cars or at home.

    This isn’t the manufacturing company’s first foray into muzzleloading firearms. They also offer two separate lines of 12 GA pistols, the Bulldog and the Wrath. Both feature 11-inch barrels and dual hammers and triggers, but the Bulldog uses a grip with finger grooves and the Wrath includes a model designed for hunting.

    The Diablo can be ordered now for $489 and will be shipped in approximately six weeks."

    "Introduction
    [​IMG]
    Let's talk about "Urban Survival".

    People ask about it, they make videos about it, and they post on internet forums about it.

    Listen to one of the many experts discuss what it's like to live in these conditions, and they'll show you videos of them walking around in a hoody with a backpack, facing down armed robbers or the like.

    Be wary when people who've never missed a meal in their lives start telling you how to survive.
    You want to talk about what it's like living in the urban landscape in a collapse? Here's some real talk: it's right here, in front of our faces.

    The ghetto, the barrio, the slums, the projects... they are collapsed societies. We say that an emergency happens when access to critical resources is compromised. It's easy to forget that in our home country, there are places where a meal isn't a three-times-a-day thing, and the biggest trouble isn't trying to figuring out what sounds good.

    Where education means a teacher quelling fights long enough to give homework she knows no one will do while being called all sorts of heinous names.

    This is a tough topic to get rolling because it hits some personal nerves... Personal enough that it's difficult fitting all my thoughts into a series of articles meant to be read. So if we accept that an emergency is a state of resource access being restricted, meaning you can't just get things the way you normally do, we can frame the magnitude of what 'urban survival' means using an analogy:

    If I asked how to go become a Hunter-Gatherer, how would you respond? Even if you were one long ago, it would be difficult. We're talking about nothing short of an utter redefinition of how you live, your identity and role in society, and entrance into a new culture. How does one "prepare" for that?
    Preparation is a niche industry and as such, tends to peddle low quality stuff for high dollar prices to people who are looking to buy their way to a solution.

    This won't be a "shopping list", it'll be some hard lessons learned from personal experience. It's going to be gritty, sickening, and challenging to accept. At times you might even feel a pang of respect for people who you would shoot without hesitation, and who would likewise victimize you. Such is the way of reality.

    These are old lessons from lives that seem long gone, but we'll tell them anyway."

    "Repost: Hard Truths About Civilian Combat Tactics When There Is An Active Shooter (with instructional cat video)


    “Hard Truths About Combat Tactics”
    originally penned and posted in September, ARSH 2011

    I have received emails from very well-meaning guys and had conversations with various law enforcement and military fellows about civilian combat tactics, both in a general context AND as they apply to me directly given my situation. While I always appreciate expert advice and soak it up as much as I can, I have been struck by one commonality that I have heard and vigorously disagree with. I have been told over and over again that the first thing one must do when a close-quarter combat theater unfolds is to seek cover.

    I’m sorry, but that is wrong. And yes, I realize that I am directly contradicting the near-unanimous advice of men who have training and experience that I lack. I realize that, but I still must disagree. If I EVER encounter a gunman or gunmen situation as we saw yesterday* in Norway, or as in the Giffords shooter in Arizona, or as in musloid Mumbai-syle attacks I will NOT seek cover. The “seek cover” tactic completely hems YOU in and basically demands that the gunman move into a position such that YOU have a shot on him, but he doesn’t have a shot on you. Guys, that’s never going to happen. And it is completely chickens***.

    Any adult, male or female, with any degree of physical capability, regardless of armament, upon seeing a shooter should immediately RUN AT THE S.O.B. as hard and as fast as possible. If you have a gun, you draw it and start shooting as soon as you can. If you have a knife, draw it and brandish it and then go for the face and neck as soon as you are in range. If you are unarmed you can still tackle him and beat him into submission or death, if necessary, or gouge his eyes out (ladies).

    At this point, most everyone in this culture would say, “That’s crazy! I’m not doing that! I’d just get shot!”

    Um, yeah. I know.

    When crazed gunmen start shooting in public places, people tend to get killed. But there are two variables that can be modified: WHO gets killed and HOW MANY people get killed. I remember hearing Dennis Miller speak very poignantly about the Virginia Tech massacre shortly after it happened in 2007. One of the dead was an elderly professor, Dr. Liviu Librescu, who was a Holocaust survivor. When the gunman appeared at his classroom door, Dr. Librescu ran straight toward him and forced the classroom door shut and held it shut while the shooter tried to force entrance. This bought time for the students to escape through the window. The gunman eventually killed Dr. Librescu by shooting him through the door. All but one of Dr. Librescu’s students escaped. The point Dennis Miller made was that Dr. Librescu, when he saw the evil standing in the door – which he had seen before six decades earlier and thus recognized – didn’t run AWAY from the evil, he ran STRAIGHT AT IT.

    Our culture with its new god of “self esteem” has destroyed the average person’s sense of courage and self-sacrifice. There is no virility, and certainly no potency. While our fighting men in the military still have plenty of bravery, their pants-pissing, self-esteem candy@$$ generals refuse to let anyone fight because “someone might get hurt”. And so, our soldiers have to sit and watch as the enemy moves free and uncontested, and then our boys get killed as a result of that enemy freedom of movement. We should be bumrushing the S.O.B.’s with everything we have, from nukes to bayonets, if needed. Speaking of bayonets, did you know that the U.S. military has removed bayonet training from basic training? Apparently it was too aggressive, or some bee-ess like that. Nevermind that a bayonet charge is still an incredibly effective tactic which was last used by a squad of Brits in Iraq who were ambushed, pinned down and outnumbered 5:1. They fixed bayonets, charged, killed 35 of the 100 Iraqi rebels, and sent the remainder running with the contents of their bowels evacuated. The Brits suffered three very minor wounds. If they had used contemporary Western sissy self-esteem “I might get hurt” combat tactics, they would have been shot dead to the last man.

    This is also what happened at Columbine High School. The SWAT Team sat outside the school while the killers roamed free because the SWAT Team was trained to not engage if they could potentially get killed. So, they sat and waited for Harris or Klebold to step in front of a window and give them a clean, “safe” shot or some such. The only reason Columbine ended was because the two shooters shot themselves. They were granted 100% situational control to the very end by the SWAT Team.

    In Norway*, even if there were two gunmen (they’re still not sure), the gunmen were outnumbered something like 200:1. The adults and older boys (I think it was a group of teenagers) could have rushed the gunmen. Would people have been killed? Absolutely – but not the 85 that were killed. A gunman can’t kill everyone if being rushed by dozens of people. Numbers WILL break through.

    And here’s the tough part for most people. Let’s say that I rush a gunman. In the time it takes the gunman to see me rushing him, aim, fire and drop me, other people have advanced four or five steps closer to him. Each person he has to kill buys the other people four or five steps. This is war, writ small. What do you think D-Day was? Eisenhower knew that the Nazi machine gunners would mow down thousands of troops – but both Eisenhower and the soldiers themselves knew that the Nazis couldn’t kill all of them. Zero casualties was never the objective. The objective was victory, and those two things are NOT the same, and sometimes they are exact opposites. If you want zero casualties, surrender.

    In our culture, not only has the notion of self-sacrifice unto death been completely lost, but people have been taught that they are personally “God’s gift to the world” and that their life is the single most important thing that there is, ever has been and ever will be. People have such an inflated sense of their own importance that they simply cannot fathom that perhaps their ultimate “purpose” on this earth might be to buy 2.3 seconds of time so that someone else can advance on a gunman, ultimately saving numerous lives. This ties directly to the fact that pretty much no one believes in the first paragraph of the Catechism: Q: Why do I exist? A: I exist to know, love and serve God in this world, and BE HAPPY WITH HIM FOREVER IN THE NEXT.

    What people fail to understand is that the life of freedom and decadent prosperity that they now enjoy was bought and paid for by millions of men who ran into gunfire, bayonets, canon fire and swords over the centuries so that the cause of righteousness could advance. Do you like being a free person who can sit and read whatever you want on this thing called the internet? (For now…) Are you glad that you are Christian and not musloid? Thank the long dead and individually forgotten men who fought at Vienna, Lepanto and Tours. If it weren’t for them, you either wouldn’t exist, or you would exist and be a musloid. They died not just for their immediate families, but also for YOU. I’m sure many an evening campfire throughout the centuries heard soldiers ask the question, “I wonder what the world will be like in the year 2000?” Our lives are the answer to their question, and sadly we have almost completely pissed all of it away.

    The problem today is that people are so monstrously narcissistic that they are incapable of viewing themselves as anything other than the sole beneficiary and culmination of history, when in fact we are all just bricks in the road of time that stretches on in front of us. Everyone has been taught that every single person is born for earthly glory, fame and riches, and anything that falls short of that just CAN’T be right and certainly can’t be God’s will. I have had, on more than one occasion, Christian people say to me with a completely straight face, “What purpose can a person serve and what good can they do if they’re dead?”

    Oh, none. There is no example of death serving a greater purpose. Especially in Christianity. Not-a-one. Sigh.

    Peter Paul Reubens, The Crucified Christ, ARSH 1613

    The amount of damage that the infiltration of the Church and the resulting Novus Ordo effiminized “church of nice” paradigm, and Super-fun Rockband entertainme-church (™) has done to this culture can not be overstated. And you wonder why I rail about these things like I do.

    When the devil shows up on your doorstep, you fix and raise your bayonet and run at him as hard as you can, precisely for the love of God and for the love of your fellow men, and leave the rest to God.

    And now the cat video. The cat just runs at the dog as hard as it possibly can. Bravo, cat."

    "Why You Need a Gun

    From Facebook:
    A couple years ago I was working security at a bar in northern Virginia. I overheard a table of college kids arguing about gun rights and gun control and it was getting far too emotional so I did what any sane combat veteran would do and attempted to exfiltrate. I must not have withdrawn as surreptitiously as I intended, because I was stopped in my tracks when a 5-foot-nothing brunette seemingly leapt in front of me and blurted out "excuse me, can you help us?"

    I'm sure I must have looked irritated as I cycled through the possible quips and excuses I considered available to me but being uncertain that she wasn't some Senator's daughter, I caved: "What's up?"

    She basically leads me to this table of 2 other females (probably both named Karen) and a very soft looking male.

    Becky: "So, we were just talking about current events and, you know. So, you look like you're probably in the military, right? Like the Army?"

    (When you accuse someone of being in the military you probably don't need to give an example)

    Me: "Similar.. yea"

    Becky: "Right. Okay. So, do you think civilians should be allowed to own guns?"

    Me: "Most of us. Yes."

    Becky: (clearly not happy with my answer) "Okay, so, why do you think you need a gun?"

    (At this point it's almost 2am and I've just given up on patience. Hold my beer)

    (With intentionally overt condescension): "Oh, honey, I don't. I don't need a gun."

    Becky stares at me blankly, so I continue, but with a more serious tone:

    "I could follow you home, walk up your driveway, and beat you to death with the daily newspaper.

    I could choke you to death with that purse.

    I could take a credit card, break it in half, and cut your throat open with it.

    With enough time and effort I could beat your boyfriend here with a rolled up pair of socks.

    I could probably dream up six dozen other ways I could easily end your life if you gave me an hour or so.

    If I wanted to, I could wrap my hand around that beer mug and kill all four of you before you could make it to the exit. The worst part is, in your utopian little fantasyland, there ain't a thing any of you could do about it.

    I don't need a gun.

    You need a gun.

    You need a gun because of men like me."


    Call me a jerk, but if you want to keep your guns, these are the conversations we all need to start having."

    "Spring Cleaning II


    [​IMG]


















    As mentioned earlier, Spring has sprung. Besides better days and weather, most of us have also rolled our clocks forward in service to a stupid idea from when America was 80% rural (except for those of you who live in states with common sense, who refuse to play The Man's game). But there are a few other seasonal tasks you should get after now besides screwing up your sleep patterns.

    When does your CPR card expire? (You have one, right?) If you haven't bothered in awhile, catch up. It's been dumbed down to the stupid simple level, and technology is now there to help you out. Call up the local chapter of the Red Cross or American Heart Association, and get a new card.

    FWIW, Red Cross also can roll it into a (very) basic first aid class, in one day.
    OTOH, American Heart's card is good for 2 years, vs. only 1 for the ARC. Choose one or the other, but bust a move. And if your employer offers it or pays for it, you'd be a fool not to take the class.

    American Red Cross

    American Heart Association

    Oh, you've already got your CPR and First Aid stuff together?
    Think about taking a CERT class. (Another class frequently paid for by employers. Sometimes even on company time!)
    Or upgrade basic first aid to EMT, or to Wilderness Medic.
    (See if you can guess what first aid after a disaster is like, when everything is impacted/wiped out: like being in the Amazon jungle or the sub-arctic tundra. Learning to improvise is a survival skill. Much more so than learning to dial 9-1-1 is.)

    And you probably moved your clocks up. Here in earthquake country, that's also when you should be checking over your emergency/disaster stuff. Add to your stash of supplies, rotate food and water. Pull old batteries and purpose them for everyday use, and put fresh ones in the O Sh*t! Kit. Change the batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. (I do the clocks too. YMMV.)


    Go through your car kit (you have one of those in each vehicle too, right?), and swap the cold and wet clothes for hot and wet clothing. Unless you have dehydrated or hardtack lifeboat rations, swap out what's in the car, rotate it into regular eating, and put fresh stuff in the car kit. Water your plants with the water, and put freshly bottled water back.

    The medicine in your first aid supplies in the car should be nothing but tablets. No gelcaps. Unless you're very rich, or not too bright. (I don't know you, so I can't say which. If pressed, I'll make a guess.) But adhesives, including medical tape and band-aids, also die in hot-and-cold storage in a vehicle. Make sure yours are okay, and/or replace the ones that have gone bad. This is even more true of barrier gloves. They die in cars. Keep just a couple of pairs in the car, and swap them out several times a year, and whenever you use them. I get mine free where I work, and usually come home with a pair or two in my pockets.
    If you don't, buy a box, put 2 pair in car and first aid kits, and change them out every month or two. Then you'll never pull on a pair that disintegrates when you pull them on.

    If you have anything else, like tools, spares, or equipment, make sure it's all there and in good working order. Needing an air compressor and finding out it doesn't work in BFE at 3AM is not the way to do things. Ditto for things like spare fuses, spark plugs, tire patches, hose clamps, etc. If you've been meaning to add something that's missing, and needful, do it. Make sure everything is clean, not all rusted out. If it is, clean it up.

    Doing things like function checks on generators should be a monthly task, but if you're too smart for that kind of sense, at least do it semi-annually. Like now.

    And if you're looking at this on a computer, make an inventory list of what's where: home, car(s), office/shop, etc.
    Highlight the items with expiration dates, or that are perishable.
    Put one list in the kit inside a sheet protector, or laminate it.
    Keep one on the home computer or your phone. Now you have an easy way to make a shopping list for what needs to be replaced or added.

    If you do this regularly, on time, 99.9999% of the time, you'll never need it. If you put it off and let it slide, you can count on Murphy making an appearance, and you with a half-assed set of gear to deal with things. Ask me how I know.

    If you're really on it, do a drill: See how long it takes to get your crap together, whether to stay, or to go. Find what and who the weak links in your Clever Plan are. Straighten both out, gently, but firmly.

    And assume everything you depend on is gone: power, water, internet, POTS, ATMs, the works. Test your plan hard. Otherwise, if you half-ass it, and expect minimal problems, you're planning to fail when it's worse. As Gen. Honoré ("Don't get stuck on stupid!") told the idiots of officialdom in Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana after Katrina, "You all didn't really plan for a disaster, you just planned for aninconvenience."
    Don't be those guys. Plan for a full-blown sh*tstorm. Fail now while you can fix it, and your life (and your family's) and welfare isn't at stake. Then correct the deficiencies.

    Lastly, put an ICE ("In Case Of Emergency") number in your phone(s); update as necessary.
    Call all those numbers and check them. (Dumbass Baby Brother decided after nothing but robocalls to simply turn off his landline one year. And told no one. Least of all me, merrily listing the disconnected-and-no-longer-his number on about a thousand applications and next-of-kin notification lists. I only found out because someone tried to get in touch with me through him, and then couldn't. Good thing it wasn't the hospital after I was in a car accident.

    If you have kids or close relatives, make sure they have your current phone numbers, emails, etc.
    Update your medical information card behind your driver's license (You have one of those too, right?), including allergies, conditions, and Rx meds, for all members of your tribe. And yes, you should have your spouse's/SO's info, and they should have yours. When you're unconscious and can't answer is no time for family members to be playing "Twenty Questions" with a surgeon in the trauma bay at the ER.

    None of this is hard. It's the kind of thing you can do on a Saturday afternoon.
    Don't say "Screw it." Do it.
    Then you can blissfully forget about it, knowing that you've got your crap together if bad things happen.

    Got all this wired down tight, already?
    You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din."

    No matter who you are, what you believe, what your politics are, your race, your religion, etc., someone out there is actively plotting your murder.

    "He discussed picking off Jews walking to synagogue, shooting police officers or attacking a church or military base, according to investigators.

    When the source asked him how he planned to carry out violence without getting caught, court records said Domingo replied: "Martyrdom, bro."

    He also allegedly discussed killing a neighbor he was upset with as a prelude to broader violence and later contemplated bombing the Santa Monica Pier, where he said a summer attack on the crowded tourist spot would maximize casualties because people wouldn't be able to escape the blast in the enclosed space.


    Eventually, he settled on the idea of planting an improvised explosive device that would be remotely triggered or detonated by a timer at a white supremacist event, investigators said. The confidential source connected him with a purported bomb maker who was actually an undercover police officer.

    Domingo bought 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) of nails long enough to puncture internal organs and provided them to the bomb maker, though the resulting contraption contained only inert materials, authorities said.

    If he survived the planned bombing, Domingo allegedly discussed launching further attacks on the Long Beach Port or on a train."

    Culture is going hot.

    From the link;
    "I agree with Samuel Culper when he states that this shooting is less about school violence and more of an example of our ongoing low intensity cultural conflict “going hot.”



    “The latest example is yesterday’s shooting in Denver, in which a transgender male opened fire on his classmates, reportedly in “revenge and anger.” That’s an extension of the ongoing culture war, and another indicator that the decades-long cold culture war is going hot.”



    This type of shooting is not new. There have been quite a few similar shootings in recent years. It’s almost like a form of terrorism, but the killers are making a cultural rather than a political statement. The shootings have been perpetrated by both sides of the cultural divide.



    Probably the two most similar active killer events are the Las Vegas CiCi’s pizza/Walmart police assassination and the 2014 Isla Vista attacks."

    This is what is going on just to our south these days; these are the guys who are crossing back and forth regularly to manage their business.
