“It costs to much to train.”Recently an article I penned generated several comments about how certain shooting drills are not really things Threepers should be practicing. Things like Non-Standard Rounds (NSR), FAST drills, VTAC 1-5 drills, 2-2-2, High Smith Rifle Drill, 2-2-4-2-2, Bill drills, Mozambique, cadence drills, etc. The argument was that you can’t do a drill that uses 15 rounds (although it works skills that may save your life) because it requires a little bit of expense on ammo and such drills can only really be done effectively by .mil or cops because they have free ammo to shoot as much as they want. Mundanes such as us do not have an ammo sponsor. And furthermore, when SHTF (that’s as subjective as what the term “constitutional” means) ammo will be limited, so shooting a lethal threat till they stop doing what they are doing is a no-no.
Publisher's Note: The approaching Endarkenment continues to rotate America around the drain of history rapidly careening toward dissolution and possible civil war. You can have all the kit you can afford but if you can't wield it effectively, it's worthless and simply will provide new kit for the better trained predator that takes it from you. Training is fundamental aligned with the mental toughness necessary for the approaching storm. Keep in mind that the threat may very well be armored. Train for every possibility.

I’d like to submit that Controlled Pairs are not always the answer to all problems. A Controlled Pair is when the shooter is engaging a threat and fires two rounds in rapid succession. The second shot in the pair, is fired as fast as one is...
"War is the health of the State. It automatically sets in motion throughout society these irresistible forces for uniformity, for passionate cooperation with the government in coercing into obedience the minority groups and individuals which lack the larger herd sense."
-Randolph BourneTechnically, ever since the shots heard round the world when the British colonials fired on the British government occupation soldiers on a weapons confiscation mission outside Boston, the American project has been at war with its inhabitants or elsewhere around the planet for its entire existence. A brief foreign expedition against pirates from 1800-1806, the war with Mexico in 1848, a number of brief forays overseas to include an abortive expedition to Korea in 1871 paved the way forward to the extra-contiguous colonial march elsewhere in 1893 and 1898 that would simply usher in a new era of meddling and blood-letting on a planetary scale. I'm convinced that the late-blooming extra-contiguous meddling took place before the end of the 19th century because the central government was busy exterminating the original inhabitants and spreading the Marxoid Constitutional gospel to all the new immigrants fleeing Mordor Westward at the end of a gun. The West was a great experiment in non=Constitutional manacles and strangulation.. War is the health of the state and the single most effective means for government to maintain and expand power other existing and newly conquered people. The wretched Constitution codified slavery directly for non-white peoples and more subtly by giving the central government unlimited taxing authority. Regulation is the handmaiden of all tax regimes. It is no mean coincidence that the Posse Comitatus Act passed in 1878 saw domestic policing authority in the United States start to shift from mere slave patrols to formally peppering the settled areas with uniformed patrols that extended their charter beyond returned fugitive slaves. Larger metropolitan areas had police starting in the 1830s but it was an unknown phenomenon in the hinterlands and rural areas. That would change after the War of Northern Aggression. Once the central government in DC completed its Lincolnian project of complete domination of the landmass between Mexico and Canada, the Posse Comitatus Act necessitated the creation of paramilitary organizations directly related to the authority of the government to enforce taxation and regulation hence the increasing use of domestic policing forces. Excepting defense of native soil from invasion, most conflicts throughout history have been disputes between plantation owners over deed ownership of lands and the hapless residents inhabiting them. History proves that whatever an empire does abroad, it will bring it home with a vengeance hence the sad state of totalitarianism that’s engulfed the British Isles and bleeds like a cancer throughout the West. Read it and weep for the mountains of corpses piled high to sate the bloodlust of American ambition to rule. None of these conflicts speak to the domestic wars waged against the polyglot of non-aboriginal people who happen to live in the tax jurisdiction known as America. Please take a look at Jim Davidson's USA, RIP essay he wrote back in 2001 for an excellent post mortem that details the early death throes to 1868.. “C&I: What surprised you in your research into the Apache Wars? Hutton: The unrelenting depravity and deceit on the part of the federal government truly amazed me. I’m fairly jaded and cynical about our government, but when the president of the United States, the despicable Grover Cleveland, invited a delegation of Apache leaders to the White House (including Chatto, who had been one of the most important Army scouts in the Geronimo campaign), and then after meeting with them ordered their arrest and imprisonment in Florida, it even boggled my mind. The icing on the cake was that Cleveland gave Chatto a “peace medal” before sending him off to imprisonment. Chatto’s crime was that he was a Chiricahua Apache.” America has been at war for 93% of the time: 222 out of 239 years since 1776 To put this in perspective: * Pick any year since 1776 and there is about a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year. * No U.S. president truly qualifies as a peacetime president. Instead, all U.S. presidents can technically be considered “war presidents.” * The U.S. has never gone a decade without war. * The only time the U.S. went five years without war (1935-40) was during the isolationist period of the Great Depression. Aboriginal extermination campaigns have been ongoing from first landfall in 1492 to the founding of the colonies and eventual divorce in 1783. They continued apace until 1923 (Posey War [Ute and Paiute]).
