Hero of Kenosha - incident hot wash

Rate this topic

31 posts in this topic

A few thoughts crossed my mind as the events of Kenosha, WI became clearer.

 

-The incident was started by another person (presumably a rioter) who shot at the kid with a pistol.  The distance was ~25 yds or longer. 

 

-The pistol bullets missed the kid.  Most untrained people suck with a handgun, because a handgun is harder to shoot than a rifle.

 

-How many of you are confident you can take a 25 yd pistol shot at a dude with a rifle?  Are you aware that is a thing in training circles?  Are you prepared?  Are you willing to practice this regularly ?

 

-The kid quickly got off the X and ran from that gunfire.

 

-The kid had some training with his carbine.  He was carrying low ready and trigger finger straight.  He had muzzle and trigger finger discipline and was situationally aware.

 

-The kid had an appropriate 2 point adjustable sling and a red dot optic.  This suggests again, he had some training and practice.

 

-I point this out because - yes, you can attempt a gun grab on an UNTRAINED shooter (like your garden variety maniac school shooter)

 

-As mono bicep dude found out, not a good idea to try to disarm a trained and determined rifleman up close.

 

-The kid made up his mind he was gonna use his rifle, and he used it under very stressful conditions.  Mindset is everything!

 

-That said, it looked like he had a few misses.  For example, I'm not sure the child-molester dude was shot in the head; it looked like a grazing wound.  Where did that bullet go?  The kid is responsible for every round that left his barrel.

 

-You probably want to be in good physical shape if you're going to be ready for something like this.

 

-The kid bought a remarkable amount of time and space after the 3 commies were shot - they scurried like roaches in the light, thus enabling him to get out of dodge and towards safety.

 

-Last night was relatively peaceful in Kenosha, WI.  I wonder what made that happen.

One thing I took away from it and it was from not the kid.  

 

Glock guy.  Screaming for aid. He could have easily dressed that wound one handed.   Men have done alot more with alot worse injuries. 

I ordered a basic IFAK kit ($52 from NA Rescue) with torinquet (CAT 7) and will add to the kit and training as time and money allow.

can't go wrong with NA Rescue. 

 

The CAT gen 7 is on the list of TCCC approved tourniquets

Did alot reading!   Had a thread at AR15 dot com and they steered me in the right direction.

I took a stop the bleeding tourniquet & first aid course last year.

The instructor was a battle vet navy doctor.

My plan.

Was interesting to me that this 17 year old (a minor) had his name revealed, as well as his race. We have kids in CT stealing cars and running people over, never get any info “because we do not report name or details about minors”. Maybe just my state that’s eff’d up but sure seems there’s a double standard with media playing the liberal/progressive tune.

I forgot to mention a little bit more about the sling.

 

If you have an AR (well, any long gun, really) and you want to move with it and hold onto it, you need a quality 2 point adjustable sling that mounts on the 9 o'clock side of your rifle.

 

Watching the videos, look how snugly that rifle holds to Kyle's body - that's because he has a good sling and reliable attachment points.

 

I'm partial to the Blue Force Gear VCAS 2 point adjustable (designed by Larry Vickers). 

 

Others include VTAC (Kyle Lamb), Sheriff of Baghdad (John McPhee) etc.

I thought under the age of 16 was considered a minor? At 17 he's almost considered an adult. I say "almost" cause he's not old enough to buy a gun and old enough to die for his country with a gun in his hand.
