Rob Pincus

Rob Pincus lays out his thoughts on home defense:

Here are Rob Pincus’ 5 Fundamentals Of Home Defense:

  1. Run like a lil’ bitch and let the bad guy have the things you worked hard for
  2. Hide like a lil’ bitch inside your own home
  3. Your hiding spot should have weapons
  4. Call the cops and warn the bad guy you’re prepared to shoot him
  5. Respond to the bad guy as appropriate

Rob-PincusI made #1 and #2 look stupid the way I worded them, but in reality pretty much everything that the bad guy is going to want to steal can be replaced by your insurance, and hiding while being ready rather than automatically getting into a confrontation is probably a good idea.  #4 though… WARN HIM?!  Uh… why?  I don’t think someone who wants to take your stuff and possibly your life grants that kind of courtesy.  Can you imagine if the police started warning people hahah “Sir!  Sir.. put that gun away and quit stealing this guy’s stuff and leave his house or I’ll shoot you.  Yes you can run away.  Please don’t come back and do anything in retaliation.  Just know you got lucky, and be thankful for that.” *eye roll*

In my opinion at the very least I wish every criminal would have to live their lives expecting to die every time they try and pull some illegal move.  Want to burglarize a house? Want to steal a car?  Well, that’s a personal choice but as long as you’re OK dying tonight because there is a good chance that’s going to happen.

Wet noodle AR-15 barrels FTW:

Last time I checked it’s almost 2013, so unless you’re building some retro throwback tribute to an AR-15 of yore, you need to do like Rob Pincus says and free float the shit out of your barrel.

Do you not want to be the best operator you can be?  Good luck getting range hunnies with sub-MOA groups.

I whipped this up as a joke to go with the post title, but I actually kind of like it:

Finally a hype man at DD who talks TO the viewer, not at them.

An introduction of Rob Pincus:

Tour of the Daniel Defense factory:

Grip and muzzle position:

Close Quarters Combat:

You might remember Rob Pincus from some past posts I made on how much of a tactical operator super ninja he is (HERE and HERE).  He’s still up to that type of stuff to an extent such as in video #1 where he stabs cinder blocks with his rifle, vaults over up hay bales to engage targets, and does a backflip over a fire pit onto a horse while dumping a drum mag at exploding targets. Fine I made the last one up… but the first two were true.

The videos got to the point, and contained mostly useful information.  I could listen to this guy all day.  Rob didn’t even tell us to “listen up” or call us “homes” in any of the videos either.  Refreshing.

I own a few Daniel Defense rifle parts and they have worked well for me.

You know.. practical stuff like jumping up on car trunks with both feet at once exposing yourself to incoming fire like a boss:

All jokes aside, most of this actually does look a lot more practical and useful.  The instructor Rob Pincus gave me the heads up in the comments of a past post CrossFit Shooting Range Workout – Operators Only that I made fun of him in.

The one operator with the beard reminds me of Rastafarian version of super derp Rich Graham.  Is that a bead in a braided dread beard?

Unless you bleed hoppes 9, shit picatinny rails, and shave with an axe, don’t fool yourself into thinking you can handle this:

LOL seriously?  The shooting range workout starts at 1:00.  Kettle ball lift shooting? Upside down sit-up shooting? Barrel jumping? ROFL

This Rob Pincus guy is priceless.  He’s definitely added to my list of hilarious instructors. I need to find a new chrome plugin to save youtube videos, I bet this one won’t last long once the rest of you start making fun of it.

If think you may ever been in a situation that requires skills demonstrated in the video, definitely book a class with him at I.C.E. Training.

I’ll hold out for the course that will allow me to polish my dirtbike backflip shooting, and straight jacket underwater foot shooting skills.  I find I’m currently outside the 10 ring a bit too often for comfort when I practice those.  Like I always say, you gotta be ready for SHTF.
