Tactics to Win a Gunfight

The police teach tactics to win a gunfight, which explains why it’s rare to see crude criminals overcome real-life shootouts. The military teaches these strategies too, but that’s by the way. Let’s go ahead.

A gunfight is quite similar to hand-to-hand combat, in the sense that there are skills & tactics to adopt to overcome your opponent. A gun is such a dangerous weapon; did you think just anyone can shoot one much more win a gunfight? Forget what Hollywood shows you: you don’t believe that four teens without prior training would plan a bank robbery & come out victorious against 20+ trained police officers in a shootout. Do you?

4 Foremost Tactics to Win a Gunfight

 

Apart from the basic training you’ll go through before handling a gun, there are special tips & strategies to ensure you win a gunfight, and these are what this article discusses. It’s just like football. Everyone knows the basics are passing & shooting, but we also know there are special skill sets displayed by the extraordinary players. That’s what we want to help you develop…

However, note that 3 on 3 is better than 3 on 1. So, if you can get any help before or during a shootout, never hesitate to accept it. In fact, seek this help. That’s that… so, here we go.

Keep a Delightful Little Sidearm Pistol Handy

 

Weapons fire; weapons stop. This is a fact taught to all soldiers in the first lessons of weapon training. You have to know this because real-life guns are very different from what you use in Call of Duty. Weapons can stop firing for many reasons. It could be due to the exhaustion of bullets, or the tired tool could decide not to automatically reload after a take a shot (which would be because there’s a chunky metal stuck in your ejection port). So many reasons, but you get the idea already.

Now, a good shooter can pull out his magazine, cock his weapon & give the metal a shake or nudge to ease the jam, but this has to be done in about a second. And no, you’re NOT going to do that. What you will do in case of an instant jam is to sling that pistol & pull out your merry little fella. 

That little fella is your backup for some minutes. So, except you have about 30 of it tucked in your pants, you have to get a cover before your round exhausts & bring your main man back into the game.

Be Sure of Your Ejection Port

 

Yes, we all want to kiss John Wick & the Extractor guy (Hemsworth) for their shooting expertise, but not every one of their moves is that accurate — or at least real-life worthy, particularly when talking about bullet casings. All weapons have their ejection port, which is where you find the bullet, but that never leaves the barrel of your gun. This port is called the casing & oh, is it hot!

The 1st reason to know the exact position of your casing is that it is where to look when your gun jams — like we explained above. Often, your weapon hand because a bullet was not properly struck & thus incorrectly fed into the gun, and the casing us where you will find this. You never can tell when you’ll be carrying only one gun; you must know how to fix a jammed firearm as soon as possible. 

The 2nd reason, which I bet you’ll learn very quickly as a beginner, is that the ejection ports of some guns can eject bullet casings so forcefully that they’ll land on your skin & burn a sweet little tattoo on you.

The ejection port is typically on the right side of your weapon, so if you’re on the right of your shooting partners, you’ll be suffering a lot of little burns. And here’s what to do: suck it up! You all are trying to live.

If I Pull the Trigger, You Run

 

If you’re not shooting your gun, you should be running. Your gun buddies should know this too. You all should form a synchronized system, such that when you’re running, your partner is shooting to offer you cover — just as you should when your partner is running. You can do all this until you reach your bunker hideout.

This works when you’re attacking too. You can alternate the covering & running procedures to get closer to your enemies. This is called the “fire & movement” technique.

Remember, the logic behind this is that repeated shots at your enemy’s exact location will keep them pinned, seeking cover, so ensure to continue shooting at them until your man is safe. Your firearm should never jam at this moment.

Always Keep 3 Things in View

 

Your eyes have to be kept on three things as you duck, dive & pull the trigger. Now, I agree 3 is a lot to pay attention to when you’re battling for life, but they are necessary. They are the bad guys, your partner & a possible cover. This is all to be focused on.

Be aware of where your enemy is, where you have just seen them or where it sounds like their shots are coming from. You should keep your eyes on this because this is where you are raining shots on when your partner is up & running. 

Stay updated with your partner’s location & movements. When he is shooting, run. When he isn’t, ensure he isn’t down. Or it could be that he has lost track of where the bad guys are.

Lastly, continue looking out for spots you can move to. Whether you’re retreating or advancing, the key is to seek cover behind places you know bullets won’t meet you. Before moving to a spot, you should have an estimate of how long you can stay there.

Concluding The Tactics to Win a Gunfight

 

Winning a gunfight takes more than your initial training. It requires wits & techniques. In subsequent articles, we’ll look at other excellent tactics to win a gunfight, but until then: which of the 4 points above are you familiar with?

Historic! New Poll Records HIGHEST Level of Gun Ownership in America

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – According to an NBC News survey done between November 10–14, 2023, 52% of Americans claim to own a gun, either themselves or someone else in their home.

According to NBC News, this is the most significant percentage of gun ownership they have ever seen in a poll.

According to data in 2013, 42% of Americans were gun owners. In 2019, 46% of Americans reported that they, or a household member, was a gun owner.

Currently, 52% of the population is affected.

Furthermore, over the years of polling, the percentage of Democrats who possess guns has also climbed.

When asked if they or anybody in their home had a gun in 2004, 33% of Democrats replied they did. Forty-one percent of Democrats acknowledged owning a gun in 2023.

With 41% of Independents stating in 2004 that they or someone in their family had a gun and 45% saying the same in 2023, Independents have stayed relatively stable. (Independents who stated they owned a gun rose to 49% in 2013.)

According to a Harvard/Harris poll, six out of ten respondents stated that having a gun helps one defend themselves against criminals.

The absence of law and order has made Joe Biden a great gun salesman.

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – During a phone call on Monday morning, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) refused to confirm if the alleged leaked pages from the Nashville shooter’s manifesto were authentic.

The suicide note, 19 diaries, and other artifacts that the transgender suspect in the Nashville Christian school massacre is suspected of leaving behind have all been withheld from the public.

28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a transgender former student, murdered three 9-year-olds and three adults last month in a mass shooting at the school.

Hale fired off 152 rounds during the targeted attack at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.

The attack appears to be a deadly hate crime by a deranged trans shooter against Christian Americans.

The media has largely ignored the attack that resulted in six deaths, including three children.

The local authorities and FBI refused to release the manifesto to the public following the mass shooting by Hale in March.

Law enforcement officials were allegedly informed by TBI Director David Rausch in April 2023 that “the killer did not write about specific political, religious, or social issues” in these documents.

Numerous regional publications have verified the photos that Crowder released.

Phil Williams of News Channel 5 criticized the article, referring to it as a “selective leak of three pages.”

According to The Tennessee Star, “sources in the Tennessee General Assembly who were allowed to view the Covenant Killer Manifesto by the Metro Nashville Police Department” provided independent confirmation of the photos.

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, a three-judge panel, ruled on Friday that AR-15s are not protected by the Second Amendment, overturning an injunction against Illinois’ “assault weapons” prohibition.

In the case of Barnett v. Raoul, U.S. District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn—a nominee of Donald Trump—issued the preliminary injunction.

The Seventh Circuit heard an appeal of McGlynn’s ruling and rendered a 2 to 1 verdict against the injunction.

The three judges were Michael P. Brennan, appointed by Donald Trump; Diane P. Wood, appointed by Bill Clinton; and Frank Easterbook, appointed by Ronald Reagan.

The majority on the tribunal that overturned the injunction was made up of Easterbrook and Wood.

They cited Heller’s (2008) assertion that “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited, like most rights.”

They continued by pointing out that the US Supreme Court determined in the Heller case that machine guns were not considered “bearable” weapons for the purposes of the Second Amendment since they might be “exclusively dedicated to military use.”

Next, Easterbrook and Wood discussed the parallels they discovered between M16s—which can fire in three-round burst mode or fully automatic—and AR-15s. They wrote:

“The similarity between the AR-15 and the M16 only increases when we take into account how easy it is to modify the AR-15 by adding a “bump stock” (as the shooter in the 2017 Las Vegas event had done) or auto-sear to it thereby making it, in essence, a fully automatic weapon.

In a decision addressing a ban on bump stocks enacted by the Maryland legislature, another federal court found that bump-stock devices enable “rates of fire between 400 to 800 rounds per minute.”

They added that both weapons “deliver the same kinetic energy” and employ the same ammo.

Judge Brennan dissented from the majority ruling, arguing that the Illinois “assault weapons” prohibition is unconstitutional because it lacks historical precedence in American culture and will fail if tried by Bruen (2022).

Brennan stated: “Preliminary injunctions against enforcement of the challenged laws are justified because the banned firearms and magazines warrant constitutional protection and the government parties have failed to meet their burden to show that their bans are part of the history and tradition of firearms regulation.”

The case is in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is Barnett v. Raoul, No. 23-1353.
