This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Shark, have you ever read anything by Jim Cirillo? He was an NYPD detective with the 'Stakeout Squad' for years, and possibly one of the few modern-era guys who could honestly claim the title of 'gunfighter'. His book 'Guns, Bullets, and Gunfights' has some interesting (and dark) tales of his time there.

Greetings!

Here is an interesting video on the Recce and related field tactics, and his set up and gear for the AR-15 rifle.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

"It is the Marine Corps that will strip away the façade so easily confused with self. It is the Corps that will offer the pain needed to buy the truth. And at last, each will own the privilege of looking inside himself  to discover what truly resides there. Comfort is an illusion. A false security bred from familiar things and familiar ways. It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

"Courage is not the absence of fear, but is doing what you have to, in spite of the fear."
"Let Death and Fire Be Their Portion!"
"Delenda Est Parthia!"

Gosh, you know that name sounds familiar, Ghostmaker! I must have heard of him--or that book, it too ounds familiar, but I can't say I have read it. It sounds interesting, though. Definitely a good book to get, I imagine!

I've been trying to get a custom semi-auto rifle for 3 months now.  All he recommended manufacturers aren't taking any orders because they are backed up.
