CQB

Ridiculous training videos have been a huge source of entertainment for me lately.

The danger and flamboyance in this particular video is startling. 0:57 to 1:19 seems like it would be better suited for an SNL skit.

It’s amazing no one shot the cameraman, or themselves.

For those times when you need to punch-shoot an attacker:

Smart. That’s Colt really paying attention to the CQB needs of the average concealed and open carrier.

You might ask, “What’s wrong with pistol whipping?”… to that I say: punching with these knuckles puts a lot less stress on the internals, and also keeps you from muzzle sweeping yourself and others.  Plus, with these 1911 knuckles you can punch-shoot with great accuracy

A 21st century boot for high-speed operators. The lightweight Nike SFB Men’s Boot was engineered to the specifications and needs of global first responder professionals, including: military, rescue and law enforcement. As the lightest, fastest-drying, highest mobility performance boot we’ve ever made, the SFB offers superior comfort for extended wear, straight out of the box.

Just high-speed operators Nike? Not high-speed low drag operators that are in the primary all the time slaying bodies? …Or is that implied?

It seriously blows my mind that only ~37,000 people have seen the following video I quoted in the previous paragraph:

Probably one of my favorite videos on youtube.

But I digress…

Those Nike boots actually look pretty nice. If they are as comfortable and as well made as their shoes  sure they will be a huge hit.  For urban use though, i’ll be sticking with my usual white Air Force 1s.

The Special Forces Boot is available in three flavors:

This guy sets out to prove whether or not grabbing the slide of an auto pistol in a close quarters gun fight would disable the gun by causing it not to cycle.

It takes four and a half minutes, some sarcasm,  humor, and blood.  And the result? It is proven that you can in fact cause a gun not to cycle by grabbing the slide when a round is fired.

Definitely good to know, because it would sure beat getting shot… I don’t think I’ll be trying this any time soon though. :P
