Re: I Almost Lost My Dogs and Cat Today To A Pack Of Wild Do

Call that in to the police department. Also,you should have shot them. I say that because I actually did have to shoot a dog that was attacking an older lady. It was my neighbors dog and it ended up being a big deal since they lied to the responding police officer saying I shot the dog as it was run...

Re: Tweaker Confrontation

No you were clear, I just didn't read it correctly. I'd still call it in even if you didn't have to draw. The guy may be relatively harmless, or may be highly dangerous. Either way it sounds like he's on some kind of dope and has got some preexisting issues. Officers in the area are probably looking...

Re: Tweaker Confrontation

You handled the situation fine, but you should have called that in to the police. If it ever escalates to that point where you need to draw your weapon (which it absolutely did) then the police need to be contacted. I'd hate to see the guy eventually hurt someone, as you just never know with people ...

Re: Chaos hits. Who would be coming for you?

I've been known to educate people on their rights when dealing with police and the sad fact of the matter is while some cops are happy that citizens know their rights and take time to study the law, others take it personally and accuse you undermining their authority and just be rude and condescend...

Re: Intro CQC Strikes for Survival: My Syllabus

If someone seriously intends to do me harm with a "tiger claw" or a karate chop then they'll be having a very bad day. As Doc kind of touched on, this stuff pales in comparison to what we learn from the modern combative programs. All the programs are derived from MMA and genuinely do work well in re...

Re: Random guy walks into your apartment/house

The fact that he actually went further into your home after you told him he had the wrong place is a bit odd. Everything worked out well for you thankfully, but I probably would have drawn on him at that point. That's a pretty dangerous response to just ignore your command like that. That being said...

Point taken. Feel free to do as you want man, I've seen cops and civilians alike go lose in court over similar circumstances. But if that's a chance you're willing to take then go right ahead, just realize going to court for this stuff isn't as clear cut as one tends to imagine it being. Sent from m...

Shout one warning and if that doesn't work, start shooting through the door/window. I am not an attorney, so bear that in mind. But from my experience with similar situations a grown male will have an extremely hard time articulating a desparity of force in this situation. The previous experience w...

Best defense is just to start screaming unintelligibly and pissing on them. If that doesn't stop the dude I don't know what will.

Re: Missiles fired at Russian passenger plane

I call bullshit, there's no way you're pulling off the kind of evasive maneuvers necessary to evade any kind of missle in a passenger jet. Too many things could, and more than likely would go wrong in an attempt. Including external flight controls breaking off from over G'ing and probably loss of hy...

Anybody do foam rolling? Just bought a roller a couple days ago and it's great. I can already notice a difference with my depth and leg mobility with my squats. They're probably my weakest lift, but I put up my max of 405 pretty smooth as compared to other times I've maxed squats. Definitely less te...

Re: Shoot out in your front yard

Honestly, it may be best to actually go out and shoot the guys instead of firing from your house. The reason being is if I'm the lone officer and I see muzzle flashes coming from a nearby house, I'm probably not thinking good samaritan. I'm probably thinking "shit, these two guys have driven me to t...
