Service rifle is weird. They use what look like m16a1 clones, but with massive krieger barrels

I have a 320c, which is basically a M18 without the safety, and not baby shit brown.

If this moves to urban centers, melee combat is something we need to discuss too. Most ballistics armor is made of plastic fibers. Pointy Knives, rapiers, estocs, knitting needles (yes seriously), stilettos, and pointy daggers should also be considered for their ability to displace the fibers and move through them.
Message permalink: 718365420515754095
Also, with heavier armors, aim for joints like armpits, knees, and inner thighs.
Message permalink: 718366329823952916

Rule of thumb for stab protection, if it will stop a bullet it will probably stop a knife, notable exception being that plate carriers are often not rated for ballistic protection them selves
Message permalink: 718403888423632998
I mean some of the older shitty handgun rated vests were like, not at all stab proof

Most melee isn't going to be more than three maybe four move before someone is either bleeding to death or suffering a concussion

"Melee" If you think you're going to have to go hands on, take bjj classes. It's good exercise anyway. If they have a knife, you're going to get cut. Doesn't matter how good you are, your best knife defense is getting away.

Message permalink: 718512802695872584
Coming from someone who has been in various martial arts for around 14 years now, punching hurts and isn't very effective unless you get lucky. If you're going to punch anything, go for soft tissue like the neck and stomach. It's much more effective to tackle someone to the ground and choke them out, though if you're dealing with multiple people, you can't do that.
Message permalink: 718516123980660767
Typically going hand to hand either means you failed with your weapon / don't have one, or you're in a scenario where you can't risk killing them

Pure OC pepper spray is usually pretty effective. It'll at least slow them down enough for you to get away.

POM, fox, and some sabre red is good to go. You'll want a pure oc spray with a flip top lid. Twist top fails too often and gel takes too long to take full effect.

You can pick up POM on Amazon for pretty cheap. Even in multi packs for stocking stuffers

For LGS it sounds about right, you’re gonna pay more usually since you’re not paying shipping and they count that into their cost. Ammoseek has plenty of places at about $.35/rd, my math says that price is closer to $.45/rd
Message permalink: 718639896146739241
Brings it down to about $.41/rd, which to not have to wait for shipping is an acceptable cost to me
Message permalink: 718640345734316072
I ordered from bass pro shops and the order got delayed 3 times, I said fuck it and paid $.37/rd instead of the $.25/rd that was a decent price at the time.

> Krav maga or shaolin kungfu are good too Kung fu makes a good base of knowledge but you need way more. Almost all krav maga is absolute bullshit. You likely won't find a real instructor, just someone teaching you watered down or made up bull that's only good for a halfway decent workout. You want BJJ, Muay Thai, wrestling, a little boxing for footwork and cardio, and msybe a few others to see what works against an opponent in the ring.
