“Charts and graphs! Buzzwords! Statistical analysis!”

News flash gents… Since the start there’s been knuckle dragging trigger pullers putting boot to neck and rounds on target with nothing more than a heavy dose of hate and the liberal application of overwhelming firepower. Want to know how to win a gunfight? Lets take a moment and try to break things down Barney style.

Kill the closest man before moving on to farthest.

Shoot, move, and communicate.

Always keep your guns up and watch your six.

Trust your teammates and only your teammates.

Focus on learning to do all that. Once you think you’ve learned what you’re doing, do it again. Do it faster. Do it smoother. Do it until you fail, and then start the process over again. That’s what wins gunfights. Not fancy terminology or the latest cool guy equipment. Just pure unwavering dedication to perfecting your craft.

This message has been brought to you by a knuckle dragging trigger puller who’s tired of “hyper dynamic advanced tactical combat focused weapons employment problem solving tactical defensive operations courses”

Kill or be killed. Nuff said.

“Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon. He doesn’t worry about what workout to do—his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him. The True Believer doesn’t care “how hard it is”; he knows he either wins or dies. He doesn’t go home at 1700; he is home. He knows only the Cause. Now, who wants to quit?”
