Re: Why Firearms Commonality is Important

Seems there are 2 sides to the question as others have mentioned. There is the specialized gun crowd and I guess me :lol: considering commonality of ammo. So the position is for you guys a specialized; which by definition means limited, gun is more important then having the ammo to keep all guns in ...

Re: Why Firearms Commonality is Important

But this isn't new. It's the same thing you did to "prove" that speed crawling is an important survival skill. No, that is not what I wrote, apparently you stopped reading the thread regarding my book, yet you comment! I am not mad I am looking at this as an opportunity to educate and try to help p...

Re: Why Firearms Commonality is Important

Each team member is randomly assigned ammo from a stockpile of 240 rounds in 8 magazines. Each team member is guaranteed at least 30 rounds or 1 magazine. Okay, what you're doing is cherry picking, or a very close relationship. You're constructing a perfect scenario that supports your ideas. I can ...

Re: Why Firearms Commonality is Important

It would appear almost no one read the original post nor the title of the thread: Did I mention anywhere that the only way to go is with commonality? I said why it's important. Some of you have supported the position that it is important but bring up other variables. I have no problem with that and ...

The Civilian and Military Preparation for the PAW

There have been some comments made by posters in other threads regarding how a civilian can't compare to the military given X or Y situation. I thought this topic was worth consideration. This thread is not about civilians fighting the military or government; so don't mention it, it's about being pr...

Re: Why Firearms Commonality is Important

I just plan to have ammo for the guns I have. I'm not planning on relying on other peoples ammo. Pretty much eliminates all those other crazy problems. Being self reliant is the overall idea in preparing! However, don't be a loan wolf at your own detriment. A squad is more capable then an individua...

Re: Why Firearms Commonality is Important

Any of you figured out I like friendly debate yet? I will try to remove all variables: shooter with X gun shooter with Y gun Firing at same rate If they do not have the exact same number of rounds one will run out of ammo before the other. So they are down a gun even though they have more ammo. At s...

The US military is now one of the most experienced in the world.

Minimalst Camping or Deprivation

A PAW situation I would think assumes the loss of a lot of comfort and luxury, so what deprivation or difficulties have you endured in your life and what did you learn? No, this is not a contest of who has had the hardest life or hardships. I have gone 3 days without sleep. It was not hard, in fact ...

Is the Tomahawk a Useful PAW Implement?

Well, the US military issued it in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. So someone somewhere thought it was worthy to be in 3 different wars. The American Indians liked them, they survived off the land without modern technology. As a weapon: First a story. I had a friend that was going on and on about wha...

Why Firearms Commonality is Important

It's even more important in a PAW situation because I would think it's assumed there is no industry so no supply chain! It's not hard to imagine scenarios: Your in a 4 man team each armed with a .223 AR: One gun breaks which means the ammo for that gun is available to the others. You are the last ma...

Re: We Can Be Prepared Like No Others in Human History

I think the biggest problem is normalcy bias. If you have friends and family who think your crazy or won't prepare for anything, what do you think is the issue? I have noticed that people I know cannot dwell on negative events without getting upset or scared. They can't stay rationale. Let's see how...
