    All you military buffs need to be making a better effort to communicate with the community, the gov, and the 2a community.... what are your intensions? Are you going to side with a tyrannical government and shoot your own people while stripping our rights? Or are you going to stand for what is right? Every day a war in the US is becoming more and more a possibility. They are using guns to purposely start a war so that they can use martial law to push an extreme left agenda. IMO All supporters of the constitution should be leaving the military and forcefully repossessing as much ammo, guns, tanks, and drones as possible. If not systematically removing all tyrants and far left supporters from bases. The war is comming... biden wants it.... he is pushing for it... whos side are you going to be on?

    Never quit, assess the situation, decide to fight or flee, dont lose the upper hand, dont fight fair in a knuckle fight, learn the pressure points on the body, smash his instep, knee 'em in the balls , do a carotid artery chop, gouge em in the eyes. Staying calm and confident in any encounter always gives you the advantage.

    Don't walk into an ambush , send scouts out for intel. Then plan your objectives carefully know your enemys strenth. Plan an e xit just in case, meat at a rondivoo point replan. Better to call in a bombing strike and save your men. Best to avoid a gun fight beware of being out flank or pin down. Remember, you only die once in a fire fight. It don't last long with todays weapons.

    The only true time you need to worry about a gun fight is if your deployed. How many gun fights do the civilians in America actually see? Ahhh. Let me guess. >0002 %. Literally. People watch too many movies.
    Negotiation techniques and power over intimidation is key. Even without a firearm.

When you told us of the brain tumor Garrett, my heart sank. I admire your courage and thank the Almighty that you came out of the surgery better than the prognosis. Thank you for your inspirational and courageous example and your willingness to share your expertise with your fellow, and most grateful, Americans. True heroes are you both.

    I have not watched the video, but I can answer the question" How to win a gun fight? " answer: Don`t get into one. That will make you a winner every time. Being AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS, will keep you out of 95% of problems. The remaining 5% is the " Fate Factor ", through no fault of your own, you are put in a situation that may be life, or death. That is what all of the training in firearms, martial arts, and any other stuff I did not mention, is all about, that 5%. Most people go through life, and never have another person shoot at them, pull a knife to kill them, or threaten their life in any way BUT, we train, and practice just in case we are some where in that 5%, and it is always a good thing to know how to defend yourself should the situation arise.

    I left USMC and eventually became an executive in Silicon Valley- I wish there were more content out there that focuses on how we are able to go to war, work hard and become a successful civilian. Too many movies and shows out there that portray us a broken people who do weird things or are homeless beggars. Even the successful Punisher TV series makes vets look insane. Our nation has a history of us going to war coming back and being highly successful. We had substantial improvements to our nation post WW2- many of them by leaders in congress and politics in general that make a difference. Anyhow, good series, great representation of squared away military types.

      But training helps to not let the "T" rule you. Make a room with a door. Put everything in that room that causes "T". LEAVE IT IN THERE! IMO, works best if you know Christ.

    when paintballing I think my body releases too much adrenaline cause my back starts to lock up, and I feel like the tin man without oil.
