How to shoot a Pistol with world champion shooter, Jerry Miculek

The Legal Use Of Deadly Force by Preppers

I’ve talked to preppers all over the United States and one common trend that I’ve noticed though those conversations was that many are under the impression that after just about any type of disaster that they will be able to defend their homes and/or retreats with unaccounted for deadly force via the barrel of a gun.

From those conversations it’s also easy to see that they are under the false impression that a disaster of say the magnitude of an economic collapse, also will result in a full collapse of the government and any rule of law and accountability for their actions.

Where they got this info is beyond me, because common sense or history does not support their beliefs. Perhaps they’ve watched too many doomsday type movies or read one too many “prepper novels”, but the fact is that the federal government has spent billions of  taxpayer dollars on their own preps and have contingency plans in place that will allow them to stay in power after just about any type of disaster imaginable.

Granted their power maybe significantly reduced or even nonexistent in some areas perhaps for months or even years, but the federal government isn’t going to just go away or disappear altogether, in fact I expect the exact opposite.

They have already enacted laws that will allow the federal government to declare martial law with the stroke and drying ink of the presidential pen. No the federal government isn’t going to go away after an economic collapse or any other likely disaster, but instead will clamp down via the declaration of martial law.

This will be especially evident in the larger cities and urban areas, those areas maybe cordoned to prevent rioting from spilling out past a certain point, but after the looting and burning subside, probably in about three or five days when the food supplies run out, troops will move in and take control of those locations via force and a declaration of martial law.

But one thing is certain and that is that the federal government, even with the help of state and local national guard and police does not have the man power to control the entire geographic area of the United States at once, this is the reason they will concentrate their resources and man power toward controlling the cities and urban areas that we talked about a minute ago.

After a major disaster there very well maybe a period of time without the rule of law (WROL), out in the rural areas this could last for weeks, months or even years, but unlike what has been portrayed, in the pages of countless survival fiction books and movies, it will, in all likelihood be a short-term event especially in the cities because martial law will be declared and enforced by the military… but that enforcement will be stretched extremely thin and could be essentially non-existent over large areas if the disaster is nation-wide.

You see most people want law and order and will work together to achieve that end. Crime will no doubt increase after an economic collapse (and after most other disasters), with home invasions, robbery, murder, kidnapping and rape being all too common, but such offenses will still be against the law, both legally and morally, and people will demand that the perpetrators be apprehended and justice served, even if that justice is set forth by the rule and judgment of a local warlord or governor and a public stoning in the street.

This is where the majority of preppers seem to be confused (and trigger happy). We’ve all heard, read and contemplated it but is the shoot-first-crowd being realistic or simply feeding their Rambo fantasies with visions of using uncontrolled, and unaccounted-for deadly force on their neighbors or anyone else that comes within one thousand yards of their retreat after the balloon goes up…

Listen; in all but the most extreme circumstances of total and long-term collapse and anarchy (example = full-blown civil war), the laws, and punishment for the unjustifiable taking of a human life will still apply, and will be enforced, even if that punishment is your public execution in the street. You will not be able to kill your neighbor because he looked at your wife with lust in his eyes, or trespassed on your property without their being repercussions brought against you.

My advice is to study up on the laws regarding self-defense in your state and to also have nonlethal means of protecting yourself, such as defensive spray, extendable baton, Taser, bean bag rounds etc… You see, having lethal and nonlethal means of defending yourself and your home and/or retreat gives you options that you can employ depending of the situation.

Granted; you may have to use deadly force to protect yourself and your family, but be sure that it is justifiable by law and moral standards before you pull the trigger. To do otherwise, may result in your being jailed or worse, which will leave your family without you and in a much more vulnerable position.

It’s a good idea to be friends with your local Sheriff and as many of his deputies as possible – remember they write the reports (just hope that it was not one of their family or friends that you shot).

Some folks suggest a shovel and bag of hydrated lime might also be a good idea, you know, just in case that you let things get out of hand…

Those that use unjustifiable lethal force against another person will be held accountable if caught, no matter how bad the disaster or how deep and far-reaching the crash it maybe. To think otherwise is a sure way of ending up in jail or worse.

How to build a War Hammer

I found some odd looking pieces of heavy steel at a flea market. Just a couple days prior,I had been rummaging around in my junk pile looking to see if I had something I could build into a zombie scull crusher/war hammer. The steel that I found at the flea market was a stroke of luck. They were perfect for what I wanted to make and very heavy to boot. this is how I made a single hand war hammer, and a two handed heavy war hammer,zombie skull crusher, door breacher,body armor penetrator.

Review: Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scope

A few months ago, I decided to add a rifle scope atop my Bulgarian AK-74. After extensive shooting and accuracy testing the rifle and the it’s 5.45x39mm cartridge, have proven to be significantly more accurate and flat shooting than my other AK chambered in 7.62X39.

By adding an optical site, I could extort all of the accuracy available from this platform. I wanted something compact and preferably with mil-dot illuminated reticle – for under $100.

After some research, I selected the Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scope. According to the description it was exactly what I was looking for, and within my AK budget.

I placed my order through Amazon and after a four-day wait, the Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scope arrived in the mail. When I opened the package the first thing, I noticed was the weight and quality workmanship.

At only 7.7 inches in length, weight is an impressive 10.8 ounces, with fit and finish being comparable to optics selling for considerably more. The Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scope comes with built-in integral sunshade, flip-open lens covers and rings.

I was still sitting in front of the post office but couldn’t resist holding the rifle scope up to my eye while looking at distant objects. The optics were clear and crisp with no blurs around the edge of vision and the cross hairs well-defined.

I’m sure those passing by were wondering what I was doing, but I didn’t care, I was in a world of my own. I couldn’t wait to mount the scope to rifle for further testing, so I was out of the parking-lot pretty quickly.

I used the UTG 978 quick detachable double rail side mount to mount the scope to the rifle. This is a great product and highly recommended from here. The Mount is solid with no movement or play whatsoever and is quick and easy to remove and mount as needed.

The downside to the UTG 978 quick detachable mount is that when mounted it sets low against the receiver cover, preventing the iron sights from being used. This isn’t a big deal because I leave the scope off most of the time and re-mounting when needed.

Getting back to the Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scope – after mounting, I needed to get it adjusted and on target. I started out at 25 yards to see how far-off center and amount of adjustment needed. The first shots were about 9 inches low and 6 inches right of center.

After making the necessary adjustments (1/4-inch at 100 yards) at 25 yards I moved to the 100 yard mark for more testing and adjustment if needed. At 100 yards bullet impact was centered and about 1 inch high – perfect.

The illuminated reticle, has both green and red setting and is incremented for adjusting brightness of both. Power for illumination is provided by one CR2032 3V battery (2 included). I’m still using the first battery and it’s just as bright now, as it was the first day.

The  Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scopeoffers 4X magnification, 28-foot field-of-view at 100 yards and is parallax adjusted at 100 yards.

The rifle scope is advertised as a CQB sight. In my opinion the need to align your eye with the reticle and then focus on the target, isn’t fast enough for CQB purposes (like building search and clearing) for which this scope is advertised, but it is perfectly adequate for most other needs.

Another thing I noticed was that the 3.5-inches of eye relief advertised is in reality is more like 2 inches. When mounting to most rifles you’ll need to push the scope as far to the rear as possible to assume a proper shooting position. However with the shorter stock found on most AK variants it is just about perfect.

The Leapers 5TH GEN 4X32 Mini CQB TS Mil-Dot Scope is a great product and for the price you would be hard pressed to do better. If you’re an AK owner and don’t want to spend a lot of money then this scope and mount would be an excellent addition.

This is why you never start a new shooter with a heavy recoiling caliber

This is what happens when you have “too much gun” and not enough experience – never start a new shooter with a heavy recoiling caliber.

The SKS for Canadian Prepper’s

Today’s non-fiction writing contest entry was written by Zman.

I am a gunsmith working in Canada and I come across a lot of firearms but one I would like to recommend would be the SKS. But first a little background…

The SKS was built in 1943 by Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov.  It was the first rifle of its kind to be chambered for the 7.62 X 39 round. Which is a fairly descent short to medium range cartridge. They originally came with internal 10 round magazines that could be fed with a stripper clip but there are variations which I will get to further into this article.  It was used as a second line battle rifle when it was replaced by the Original AK-47.

The reason why I am going to talk about the SKS is for multiple of reasons.  First of all in Canada it is not legal for 95% of the population to own AK or AR style firearms as they are considered prohibited or restricted. The SKS is considered a standard Hunting rifle in Canada so you only need a basic Firearms License to possess one here. Second is they are very inexpensive to buy in Canada ($150-$300). Ammo is very Inexpensive and easy to get.  I bought 1300 rounds of Bulgarian FMJ for $200.00 plus tax.  Hunting Ammo is about $15.00 for 20 rounds.  The last reason why I like them is they are reliable, fairly accurate and are easily accessorized.

There are different models of SKS available in the surplus and yes civilian market.  The most common ones I come across are Russian re-man SKS, Chinese type 56, Chinese Type 56-D and Yugoslavian.

The Russian Remanufactured SKS come in varying degrees.  It is easy to tell if it is a Russian remanufactured because first of all a lot of them will have a big star over the receiver cover with a date.  Some will have Cyrillic script (Russian writing) on the side of the receiver and some won’t.  If it is a Russian re-man all the serialized parts will have the same number but with one, two or three X’s behind them showing that the gun was built from either spare parts or parts of other ruined SKS.  Most Russian styles come with a standard knife bayonet.  Some Russian SKS come with the Chrome Lined barrel and some don’t so keep your eye out especially when using corrosive ammo which is about 80% of the market for ammo. They also have a polished uncoated receiver unless it is the rare version with a black coated receiver for NBC operations.

The Chinese Type 56 comes in three variations.  The regular type 56 will have the standard (Pickle Stabber) style Bayonet which is basically a three sided bayonet.  It will have the standard internal mag pinned of course to 5 rounds in Canada, a Chrome Barrel (Which I highly recommend) and either Chinese Characters on the receiver or sometimes English depending on what factory it was produced in. The Chinese Type 56 D, Comes with a detachable AK 47-AKM magazine and it has no bayonet Lug.  All other parts are interchangeable with the rest of the type 56 or another SKS.

Be very careful of the third type of Chines SKS it just has SKS and 7.62 X 39 written on the side and it is not a type 56 and it was made for the Civilian market.  These were very cheaply produced by Norinco in the mid 90’s to mid-2000’s.  They are of relatively poor quality and the parts are not interchangeable.  They are not made from machined receivers and the Gas Tube is ½” Shorter than the Standard SKS.  I have had a couple of these come in and they will work but they are not very good quality. Almost all of the Chines stuff at this time are Original unfired and stored military surplus made in the mid to late 60’s. I  highly recommend these as they are very accurate and they have a coated receiver that helps reduce rusting from corrosive ammo all the serial numbers and parts match, there machined receivers and  all of these firearms have chrome lined barrels.

The Last SKS style I see is the Yugoslavian version.  It is very similar to the Russian versions but it has the spigot type grenade launcher and fold down grenade sight.  They are neat looking but the grenade launcher isn’t very useful as it is not possible to get the grenades so it just adds weight.  They also come with the standard Knife style bayonet.

When buying your SKS I tell everyone to do this first.  Look to see if it has a silver ring on the inside of the muzzle as this shows if it is chrome lined.  If it is black chances are it is not.  There is nothing wrong accuracy wise with the non-chrome but it is easier on the barrel when using corrosive ammo. Also look down the barrel with a light; you are looking for pitting, rusting and non-sharpe lands and grooves.  The next thing to do is pull the gas tube off.  What you want to make sure is that there is no pitting and the Gas Piston inside is snug and not sloppy.  You are also looking for rust as I have had a couple Russian re-mans come in with holes rusted right through the Gas tube and these were both on “just bought” military surplus rifles.  The owners came in saying it would not eject the rounds and this is what the problem was.  Next if you can pull the whole SKS out of the Stock the reason why you want to do this is some of the surplus stocks have sever dry rot and you do not notice it much on the outside but on the inside it is obvious.  If you plan on replacing the stock with a Tapco, ATI, Archangel etc. the stock probably won’t mean much, but use this as a tactic to buy the SKS at a better price.  The last thing to look at is the bolt itself.  Make sure the Firing Pin isn’t Jammed forward and make sure there is no excessive wear or rust.

When you get your newly purchased SKS home you must clean the cosmoline (Gun Grease) out of it before firing.  That basically means you must strip the gun completely down especially the Chines versions.  I strip all the metal parts and I first rub them down with a rag and take all visible cosmoline off of the parts then I run the parts under hot water with a little dish soap.  I then rub the parts down with a dry rage and then heat my oven to its lowest setting and put the parts in for 10 minutes to dry.  After this I use G96 Gun Cleaner/Lubricator on the Gun.  You can use any Gun Lubrication such as Rem Oil or CLP etc. but I like the G96.  Insure that you tear the bolt assembly with the firing pin totally apart including pulling out the firing pin.  The firing pin is held in with a pin just use a punch and hammer to knock it out.  You must clean the firing Pin hole out because grease in there can harden and cause your gun to max (Go fully Auto) with no control or worse slam fire.  These firing pins have no springs so there is no resistance to hold the pin back.  You can buy spring kits but as long as you clean, lubricate and take care of your firearm  I have found that the spring kits are not necessary.  The easy way to tell if the firing pin is clean is by holding the bolt near your ear and shaking it you should hear the firing pin moving back and forth easily with no delay.  You can also grab the end of the firing pin and it should move easily.  If it doesn’t move freely take apart the bolt and clean and lubricate again.

With the stock I use Window Cleaner and a rag to get the grease off.  Do not put this in the oven or under the tap with water as most of the stocks are not finished in the inside. I do not recommend using any solvent based cleaner especially on the stocks as I found they do not work as nice and it can damage wood or plastic parts I have seen this first hand.  As well I have seen firearms that had chemical solvents that were not fully cleaned out and the damage created from this can be bad especially on finishes on moving parts.

I have come across varying degrees of accuracy of these rifles but to be honest I have found the best accuracy with the Chines type 56.  I have sighted in all kinds and these seem to be the most consistant.  When sighting in please use good quality ammo as the Army Surplus can have spoiler rounds and the accuracy of some is excellent and of other kinds can be very poor.  I would recommend maybe buying some American Eagle as it is always very consistent, if that is not available Sellier and Bellot I have found works very well or even if you can find it the Hornady is very good.  I am not a big fan of the open sights but they seem to be fairly adequate up to 100 yards after that the front sight seems to be too big and makes shooting tuff.  I personally would scope every one. (Just my opinion) as they make great scope mounts for these so you can still use the open sights.

When you are finished firing these firearms I highly recommend cleaning them and if you use corrosive ammo you must clean them or they end up at my place where I get to fix them.  I use the hot water and soap method but you can also use glass cleaner. If you are in an extremely humid climate or extremely rainy I always recommend on all guns to use good old 10W30 Motor Oil on the outside of your firearms metal parts.

I will not get into accessories in this article and if anyone wants me to do a write up on the accessories or have any more questions then please leave them in the comments and I will answer them the best I can.  Thank you

I Hate Glocks… So Why Am I Going to Buy One?

Today’s non-fiction writing contest entry was written by Oliver H

glock handgun picI am turning 21 soon, meaning I will be eligible to purchase pistols and apply for concealed carry. I do not claim to be some ultra-expert with ages of experience, but I am at the very least an educated citizen. To lend some perspective, here is my background:

 

  • Completed the NRA Pistol Instructor’s course
  • 1 year as a Range Safety and Security worker on a very dynamic, tactical range.
  • 1.5 years as a product specialist and custom rifle builder for a small, custom manufacturer
  • Taken multiple classes on firearms training including: firearms safety, night operations, shooting inside a house, and concealed carry
  • Received basic firearms and small unit tactics training from the US Army
  • Competed once in both F-Class and USPSA

I aim only to provide my experience in choosing a pistol suitable for concealed carry, and hope that it may bring up some points to think about before buying your next pistol. Remember: this is my personal preference. Bruce Lee said, “Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, add what is uniquely your own.”

Keep that in mind.

————————

So I will start by writing a strategically placed word:

 Glock.

Just saying the word creates all sorts of connotations in different people. Some people love them, swear by them, create shrines and worship them. Others have developed a gag-like reflex of pure disgust when they hear the word. I used to do the latter. Oh, how I hated the trigger! Oh, how I hate the sights… and the grip angle! Don’t even get me started on the grip angle. I love 1911’s, and I always will, but then something happened. I decided to try out all sorts of guns for my first concealed carry. So, I developed some criteria to meet my personal needs. The god-like 1911’s failed the very first one!

1)      A concealable Double Action/Single Action or Double Action only (DA/SA, DAO) pistol

Why?! Why not a Single Action only (SAO)? The bottom line is that if I want to carry with a round in the chamber, I do not want that round to have any chance of going off. Somewhere, a 1911 guy just threw his Kimber hat at the computer screen. The reality is that I am personally not going to put my life, health, career, family, and others at any more risk than necessary. A “cocked and locked” 1911 is only stopped by a mechanical safety if dropped or hit. I don’t want to rely on that. Even if that weren’t the case, I don’t want a pistol that I have to train to flick off the safety every time. When I bring it out of the holster, it’s go time! Which brings me to my next two points:

2)      A simple design, I don’t want my gun covered in safeties… I will invest in a good holster and training

3)      9mm

Stop… 9mm? What? I decided to go with the 9mm. Why? For one, modern ammo technology has come miles from what it was in the past. I can cost effectively practice with ball, but the modern ammo I would rely on during carry performs effectively. I could write a whole new article on this, but with the right ammo, most of the arguments against the 9mm are now invalid.

If you are looking for a place to look, I would definitely be comfortable carrying Hornady Critical Duty. Round count is also a factor. Pistols of the same size can’t fit as many rounds in .45cal as they can in 9mm. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the .45cal. However, the biggest issue is I do not have deep pockets to practice.

Practice is the most important thing, with whatever gear you have. That brought me to briefly think about a Ruger LCR in .357mag. I could use .38spl to practice. Revolvers are the most reliable firearm. However, I could increase my firepower greatly with a compact, semi-auto pistol. This led me to develop number 4:

4)      A semi-automatic pistol with the best value, without compromising performance

I am not going to be so cheap as to put my life on low-quality weaponry. I’ve seen too many semi-automatic Taurus’, Rugers, and Kel-tecs broken to go that route (notice I did not include Taurus and Ruger revolvers). I love H&K’s (especially the USP compact) and Sig Sauer, but they were just out of my price range when there are other great value options out there.

I looked at the XD and XDm series. I love the XD, however their compact model is only in .45. That surprised me, however, the XDm has a compact model in 9mm. I did not like the “improved” ergonomics in the XDm series. I preferred the regular XD series. Also, the barrel in the XDm compact is 3.8” as opposed to the G19’s 4” barrel. That is a slight edge that I can deal with when concealed carrying. Oh yeah… what’s up with the magazine springs in the XD/XDm series? They are dreadfully difficult to load by hand.

This is more of a problem than most people are willing to admit. I should not need a loader to put bullets in my magazine for my every day carry gun (EDC).  Yes, they get better with time, but I want to be 100% effective as soon as possible. The thought started to creep into my head. Get a Glock. NO! I rejected it. I searched elsewhere.  I looked at the PPQ. I loved everything about it. I got hold of one.

I shot 100 rounds through it. It’s a true tack driver. However, I had a unique and unfortunate experience with the pistol. It jammed TWICE in 100 rounds on me. Now, it could have been a million factors; cleaning, ammo, a lemon gun, but it completely turned me off. A dirtier Glock sure would have accepted and ran through the ammo. So, point number 5:

5)      Ultra-reliable

The PPQ doesn’t have nearly the track record that Glock does. The thought crept back. Get a Glock! Reliability is paramount for an EDC gun, but the glock sights, I hate them! Well, I was going to change the sights on whatever gun I got anyways. To what?

6)      Tritium night sights

I love these sights. They are everything I want in no-light conditions, and coupled with a flashlight, one can do some serious night work with them. If you have done night shoots, tritium night sights are a serious asset. I have had experience with both Trijicon and Meprolight night sights. They are essentially equal in performance, and Meprolight sights are cheaper.  Next point:

7)      Get a full hand on the grip, comfortably

What about the micro 9mm guns out there? They have a purpose, but when I can comfortably carry a bigger pistol, with a longer barrel and more round count, why wouldn’t I? The G19 is perfectly concealable and I can get a full grip on the pistol. This is big when in a high-adrenaline situation. It is easy to fumble some of the small “subcompact” guns out there. The next option was the M&P9 from Smith and Wesson. For some reason I could not put the same confidence in the M&P as I could with a Glock. The G19 was more comfortable. That’s just my opinion. I also liked the Gen 3 better than the Gen 4.

So here they are, my 7 major criteria:

1)      A concealable Double Action/Single Action or Double Action only (DA/SA, DAO) pistol

2)      A simple design, I don’t want my gun covered in safeties… I will invest in a good holster and training

3)      9mm

4)      A semi-automatic pistol with the best value, without compromising performance

5)      Ultra-reliable

6)      Tritium night sights

7)      Get a full hand on the grip, comfortably

All of this led to one pistol: the Glock 19. I am still combat effective with the trigger, even though it is an abomination compared to a 1911 trigger. Also, training will only make me more comfortable with the Glock trigger. Also, there are plenty of mays to modify the trigger if need be in the future. A bonus with the Glock is the giant aftermarket and community support. People have done just about everything to this gun, and there are so many knowledgeable people on the Glock. You can get help anywhere with it. I will never be of the Glock or nothing mentality.

I will continue to weigh my options, and as my criteria and comfort level change, so will my gun. Nevertheless I will say this: the Glock is an ugly, nasty, and delinquent pistol, but it’s always down to fight. Just as this article is not perfectly refined into a literary masterpiece, the Glock is not meant to fit in with the safe queens.

Neither are you when you are engaged in a defense situation. You need something that can get nastier than the scumbag attacker you are going to subdue. There are many great options out there that can do the job. The Springfield XD? Awesome. You want a Smith and Wesson M&P? Do it, and be confident in your gear and training. I would like to own most of the pistols out there, but when I had to pick one, I chose the Glock 19 Gen 3.
