Range 15 The Movie Indie Go Go

I've pretty much sworn off promoting these for people. Some how or another every time they fail to live up to the deal. However these guys didn't ask me to do this. Honestly they don't know I exist. Matt Best makes hilarious youtube videos that I enjoy. He and some other guys are trying to get the cash together to make a war movie. A was movie where the uniforms are right and tactics are good would be great. Granted Acts of Valor nailed that but it was pretty one dimensional otherwise.

Honestly a movie that shows us having the full range of human emotions, goofing around and then getting serious to do bad things to bad people would be great. Give if you can and share as widely as possible.

Letting Matt and Nick speak
Hollywood wants our movie. They want to take it, castrate the script, cast a boy band to play us, and then spend two miserable hours hashing out how war is hell. Fuck that. Let’s do this our way, blow some shit up, and make the best military movie ever. We’ve personally pushed all in on this. We aren’t wealthy people, but we’ve sunk every dime we can sink into this movie, and this is by far the biggest project any of us have ever taken on. We can’t finish this, and give Hollywood the middle finger, without you.

Spring Fitness Push




I am on day 2. Not quite as low carb as Pastor Joe recommends but we haven't really done a dedicated shopping trip with this new found health push in mind so it's been catch as catch can. Anyway I am working to get fit and establish healthy long term habits. Are you physically where you want to be? If not, what are you doing about it?

Thoughts on Groups and Leadership



Leading people and being involved in groups are an interesting things. In no particular order I have some thoughts on the matter.

-Never order someone to do something you will not do yourself. Once my commander, a Major, cleaned up human feces with an e tool because he wouldn't order anyone else to do it.

-Following on the first point never give an order you do not think there is a good chance your people will follow. Either you seem out of touch or like a complete a hole for no reason, neither of which is good. Also when they inevitably fail to follow the order you knew they probably wouldn't follow the options are to punish them, which is stupid, or ignore, which makes you look weak are both bad.

-Delegation is an interesting thing. As a leader at almost any level you simply cannot personally do everything that must be done. That being said you can delegate authority but not responsibility. In plain language that means someone can act on your behalf to get something done but if they mess up it's still on you.

-My general belief on delegation is that people should focus on doing stuff they can do which others cannot. People should pass the things others can do onto those folks.

-Of course you need to figure out what people are capable of when handing out tasks. Even if they want to do the right thing (which they generally do) asking folks to do something they can't just doesn't work. If I was given the task to write a code for a computer or rebuild the engine on a vehicle I would almost surely fail, because those tasks are outside of my skill set. Furthermore leaders should, whenever possible, have people do things they are interested in. Even if it causes some shuffling of other things if you have folks do stuff they are interested in they will do better and everything goes well.

-The preparedness/ survivalism scene is full of people who want to be the leader but absent people who want to be led. Every yahoo wants to be the Chief but nobody wants to be an Indian.

-Leading people without a readily apparent extrinsic (money, etc all) motivator is a hassle. Honestly I don't envy 'leaders' in preparedness/ survivalism. Aside from the fact that they are herding cats, they have to figure out how to create intrinsic motivation in people to get them to do stuff. Leading a bunch of cats by consensus in an environment where you have no stock and an iffy carrot would suck.

-In a decent sized group peer pressure is a hell of a thing.

Quote of the Day and Video

"I never planned on getting in a gun fight. I'm the first one to tell you that anyone who does involve them self in a gun fight usually made a mistake somewhere along the line."
-Bob Stash,
Lieutenant Chicago PD



The lessons of this interview are worthwhile. In his first shooting Mr Stasch's partner dumped a cylinder of .45 long colt in the goblins chest then a couple rounds of .38 special. Mr Stasch put 2 rounds of .44 mag in his chest then went for the pelvis and hit low putting one in the thigh and another in the knee which dropped him. It was a total of 13 rounds most of which were big bore revolver rounds and the man didn't die for days. Mindset was key there. This is something I learned in another place but mentality is key. Have the mindset that if someone shoots you, you will shoot them, or cram that gun down their throat. This mentality and the unwillingness to quit is very important.

Training to shoot at close distances with one hand was my other big take away.

Something Lighter- Dynamic Pie Concepts

Too much heavy stuff floating around right now. I had a good little talk with a buddy last night and there is a post in my head from that but today I want to lighten things up a little bit. So I introduce you to Dynamic Pie Concepts.

Miley Cyrus singing Jolene



Whatever you might think of Miley Cyrus the girl can sing. She does this at least as well as Dolly Parton.

Festive Holiday Handgun Tips



American Black Out




This has been out for awhile. I finally got around to watching it. Maybe some lessons are in there; or there is at least a good reminder of the importance of preparing. If nothing else it's not a terrible show to watch though it does bother me how the one survivalist is a complete goober.

Have you watched American Blackout? What did you think of it? Any lessons or points of importance?

Larry Vickers on The Myth of Over Lubrication


Larry Vickers on 'over lubrication' of weapons. Before saying he is stupid I recommend a quick google search. It's fair to say Larry Vickers has forgotten more about all things guns and fighting with them than most people reading this know. His thoughts mirrors my personal experience, doubly so with the AR-15 platform which runs best wetter than other weapons. As far as I am concerned this is the last word on the matter.

Headshots with Walking Dead Weapons: Featuring Jerry Miculek



Pretty cool little video. That being said I have two reservations. First you will note that while the shooter was moving the targets were stationary. When BOTH THE SHOOTER AND THE TARGET are moving the difficulty level is significantly compounded.

Second saying 'Well Jerry Miculek can make that shot" is kind of like saying "Well Alton Brown could salvage this meal" or "Kate Upton can pull off that outfit". The kind of things these top tier professionals do are not able to be consistently replicated by normal practicing enthusiasts, let alone laymen.

That being said we can certainly just enjoy the cool video.

Tacticool Magazine

Max Velocity brought to my awareness 'Tacticool Magazine'. I am not quite sure what to think of that. However Matt of MBest11X who is simultaneously a real deal Ranger Regiment vet and a hilarious youtuber is on the front page.
 
Matt's video on pre workout is awesome though rated R for language

Their hilarious video on "How to be a Man" is arguably offensive to women, gays, people who do not like profanity or sexual references and probably some other groups. It is however really funny. You have been warned. Link here.

If I see a copy of this magazine at a store I'll buy this edition though I'm not willing to seek it out.

Matthew Bracken Interview



Interview starts at 23 min.

Without starting a flame war I personally do not consider Alex Jones/ Prison Planet to be a reliable source, nor do I frequent any of their various publications. People have to evaluate these things themselves and reasonable people can differ in opinions. YMMV, end of topic.

The above taken for what it is they did an interview with Matthew Bracken which is pretty cool. I enjoyed his books and they are turning out to be more accurate than I like as time goes by. When Matthew Bracken talks I listen. Though he should probably consider doing something with his hair or at least throwing on a hat for the next interview.
