Publisher’s Note: I have nearly completed the Glock fleet upgrade with some exceptions like the addition of maritime cups, which I am debating.
I’ve recently repurposed 2x Keurig cup holders (drawers) for Glock barrels and gunsmithing paraphernalia in my safe.
I’ve also found that I can use fountain pen boxes for holding barrels in the range bag (even metal cigar tubes if a microfiber cloth is wrapped around the barrel).
I also gut and modify old day-planners of various sizes for concealed carry of the Glock
I use a Maxpedition Fatboy to hold my conversion kit and barrels for my 23-19 along with a small ‘smithing kit, lights and batteries. Whenever I employ the conversion, I just reverse the load-out in the MaxP. This also sits in a rather mundane day-planner when on the road.
For my AR, this is a very low profile case to carry it in. I’ve custom configured scavenged foam on the inside from a Pelican.
Please be sure to post any ideas you may have in the comments here or at the forum. I also invite my readers to post any recommendations on resistance/irregular warfare literature they may find informative and entertaining. –BB
“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property . . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”
I’ve talked about Peak Guerilla before which I posit at 1916-1922 with the major innovators in T.E. Lawrence, General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck and Michael Collins in theaters planet wide during those tumultuous years.
While a reluctant Anglophile, I have always admired the plucky ‘special operations forces” the UK deployed globally during the War to Save Josef Stalin. From Stirling’s resolute SAS and SBS spinoffs to the LRDG and Orde Wingates innovations in southeast asia.
Despite the seeming truth that the British win all their martial contests in spite of their best efforts, I still admire these outliers in British arms. The English fondness for eccentricity let these “rough men” thrive in a way the American military would never tolerate.
I just got finished reading a rather fascinating tome on Churchill’s notion of “ministry of ungentlemanly warfare” and it was most revealing. I recommend it.
Here’s another great link (thanks Aesop). It leads to a host of vintage manuals from the 1940s.
My friend Lester Grau’s interpretation of the Russian Partisan manual from 1942 is most instructive.
I have an entire portion of my home library dedicated to the history of irregular warfare. Mostly Western history as Eastern is simply beyond my scope of inquiry. You could spend a lifetime mining the anecdotes and data.
There are many distillates to be learned among which is the notion of strategic compression, using tactical means to achieve strategic objectives such as assassination, sabotage and deception.
