So now it seems I am a member of a forum where grown men mock what twelve year old boys post on the internet.

I'm just glad they are talking about knives and guns, rather than the latest gender fluid doll.

Probably 20'somethings or older.

  • I think you are doing it wrong if you have a fear of “ reapeted long distance hits to the back”, WTF them paintballs hurt 🤣


    Unless you are the crew of a Tiger/King Tiger... Them pesky T-34s and Shermans will always try to get behind ya'...

    I recall his instructor credentials being stripped a couple years back. He really responded well, he went on the attack to all his critics. :ROFLMAO:

    Regarding that Gecko45 tangent, from SO many years ago.... the funniest reply that sticks in my mind was the suggestion that he strap 2 manhole covers together, then wear them as a sandwich-board.

    Good times, from many MANY years ago!


    He'd be a mall ninja turtle. That's badass.

    "BTW, I am, of course, usually carrying a pair of ceramic plates in my briefcase so that I can shield my head. My SO (we work as a team when necessary) has a similar accessory containing a breakdown NEF single-shot 300 WinMag with an 18″ bbl. The plan is that I shield us with my body and “catch the rounds” while she assembles the NEF. I lay down covering fire with my 23 (Bar-Sto .357 Sig barrel) and she makes the long shots. I will then throw smoke grenades to obscure the area while continuing to lay covering fire. The problem, of course, is when I have to turn my back to run, and then the problem crops up."

    This dude *almost* had it all figured out.

    If you're down to drawing a knife, something has gone catastrophically wrong with your plans.

    Axe and shield!
    That would be a way to smite your enemies!
    😈

    In a tactical situation, bringing a knife to a gunfight, is just suicide.

    Yeah, and don't forget that he talks about having them 'fancy Tabi shoes' for climbing walls'n'stuff. Even'er more epic'er.

    I knew a real life one. He was a washout from Parris Island. Called himself "Wolf". Wore a black leather trenchcoat (because he could conceal a Mossberg Cruiser) tucked BDU pants into HiTec boots, and some kind of Indiana Jones hat. Oh! And fingerless gloves. I could go on but you know the type. He had a job as a security guard (of course). He comes by my house one day and shows me this POS beater ~4" S&W .38 revolver they gave him along with five wadcutters. Had to be vintage 1920's and this was 1998 or so. Nothing to look at but it worked like a clock.

    He comes by because he wanted to borrow my G21. He didn't have a handgun and they wouldn't let him carry his Chinese AK with a 75rd. drum and Shotgun News $200 37mm under barrel flare launcher (he asked). I think it was a job guarding a mall parking lot? Some parking lot.

    I don't know, I saw a video some time back where a guy with a knife was literally chasing and chopping up several armed cops. I think they eventually got him but it took a while... The video would be 3 Stooges level comedic if it didn't wind up with I think six severely injured and/or dead cops, cops that really tried to not shoot the guy so gotta give 'em marks up front for that. Mexico or SA somewhere IIRC.

    I've heard more than once and even seen proof a few times, that if the enemy is within 21' and you don't have the weapon already drawn, that the distance can be closed faster than most can draw. One article stressed "belly shooting" where you just clear the holster, keeping the pistol at your hip/belly and close to your body, and point shoot the entire cylinder or mag into the enemies belly. Idea is that it's faster and they can't disarm you or wrestle the weapon.

    In all cases where the enemy is close, it's ideal to have your offhand out like a "stop sign" (or "are you ready" if you're too hooah for that shit!) to keep anyone back while you're attempting the draw. At least that's what I learned and practiced.

    They had a guy that went full retard with a knife, at a shopping mall up in Port Hedland.
    He was off his meds, had a psychotic episode.
    The police ended up shooting him.

    The push to the sternum, "Get Back" and draw your sidearm.
    Never had to use it, thank fuck.

    Where's a drone strike when you need it?

    Sounds a little less mall ninja and a little more trench coat mafia.

    Mall ninjas are generally harmless. They enjoy LARPing, hot pockets, japanese tentacle porn and tactical accessories.

    Trench coat mafia types are the ones you have to watch out for.

    What the hell was that girl in the purple shirt looking at while shooting? It looked like a trick shot with a mirror but it wasn't.

    She still hit those targets though...

    Hope this guy has damn good liability insurance.

    It's a new technique using you're hearing as sonar to "see" the target... impressive for a beginner... everybody else seeing the normal way... LOL
