Take SEATS!!! Notebooks OUT!!!
Pay close attention!!! Don't make me discuss self-protection, again!
If it happens, it will mean that some other Troop(s) have been killed
or injured because they have failed to heed good advice &, maybe their
I just read an account of the kidnap, rape, torture & brutal murder of
a young woman. She was described as attractive, petite & independent.
One of the biggest dis-services the "feminist movement" has done to
society has been to tell women that "A woman needs a man, like a fish
needs a bicycle".
Maybe, in normal, societal interaction, this is workable (& I doubt
it,even then) but, when you leave societal norms, such as by hiking in
the wilderness, a woman without a man (& I don't mean an adult city
boy, who has never had to deal with aggressive confrontation) is
wearing a sign that says,"Victim!!! Rape me, torture me, kill me!!!"
Even a well-qualified man has no business out in the woods, unarmed.
When you are outside of "normal" society, you carry your security
loaded or you endanger yourselves & your loved ones.
I don't CARE if you had a deprived (or depraved) childhood. GET
HELP!!! GET OVER IT!!! Trying to take it out on me or mine can get you
THAT is the main thing my Troops need to take from this class.
If they threaten you or yours, ALL BETS ARE OFF!!! TAKE THEM OUT!!!
Sgt.Mack's Basics for Survival:
1) Carry enough equipment and arms to
ensure that you come back in (basically) the same condition as when
2) Ensure that you are well trained in the use of whatever equip.or
arms you carry.
3) Never question that "hair standing on back of
neck" feeling or decide that your concerns are foolish. It is there
for a reason & can save your life.
4) Neither do you take safety short cuts or get lulled into a false
sense of security by the beauty of the outdoors. It can kill you.
5) If you find it necessary to exhibit your firearm to warn someone
away, never extend it away from your body (in a close proximity
situation) but hold it close & extend a warning hand & shout STOP!!!
If the intruder ignores the hand & verbal warning & comes close enough
that another step would bring them within lunging range, SHOOT!
6) If you travel with a dog and have suspicions about your safety,
don't let the dog "range". Keep it close. You must protect the dog
from superior force.
7) A STOUT hiking staff (one that you can use as a club, without
breaking it) is useful if you don't have a firearm (but DROP & give me
50, if you go unarmed) & (if attacked) do a joint attack, with your
dog. Don't wait for the attacker to kill or maim the dog.
8) Now this one is going to draw me some flack from the left, other
libs, some martial arts people & pacifists. It is fine to live your
life with goodwill toward all & malice toward none BUT, once someone
has demonstrated, by words or actions that they intend to (& can) do
bodily harm to you or yours, your mission has just been changed.
If avoidance will not disengage you from them & they attempt to close
for combat, your goal is no longer to disengage, but to leave them
writhing in pain, to the point of disability or unconscious or dead.
People who exhibit violence to peaceful people have forfeited their
right to any human consideration.
One of the mistakes the young lady victim seems to have made was to
have out-distanced her attacker, thinking he would be gone, when she
returned. A better course would have been to have quickly turned back
& sought other people or found a different path back, as he seems to
have lain in wait & ambushed her.
O.K. some of the "feminists" are going to have a fit, over this one.
Female Troops, if you are considering a shortcut (driving or not) that
will take you over a sparsely traveled road, but save you some time &
miles, even if you are armed, DON"T DO IT!!!
It isn't worth the risk
of car trouble &, then, trouble with some cesspool sludge or the
aforementioned running you off the road, so that you can save a bit of
time or distance or assert your independence. Whatever gets you there
WITHOUT RISK is smart. Anything else is STOOPID!!!
Now, as to the "Nightmare Act", the real name of the "dream act", the
ONLY shortcut, for citizenship, for illegal immigrants, should be
HONORABLE MILITARY SERVICE, PERIOD!!!
No education allowances or special consideration & NO ANCHOR BABIES!!!
