THE THIN BLUE LINE AT SEA: THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD

LONG HISTORY

If there is a single force that is in action 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, it is the United States Coast Guard. It not only is on call 24/7, but it is also tasked with a wide variety of missions that take it from the fresh and salt waters of the United States to the front lines of America’s wars.

THE WILD BUNCH TESTS THE LATEST GEAR IN THE COLORADO HIGH COUNTRY

Once again, the “Wild Bunch” gathered in the high country of Colorado, near the small town of Maybelle. Some came to hunt, some to get the hell out of the too-many-people urban areas, but all participated in discussing how to postpone the demise of Western civilization in general, and that of our great Republic in particular for the year. As well as evaluate and discuss new gear, work out new small arms, generally hang out and maybe just maybe harvest an elk or two.

COP TALK: Go to "L"

One of the greatest pitfalls for law enforcement officers is the crossfire, or taking positions that put them in the line of fire of other officers. Officers with only a few years on the job have done it hundreds of times. We all have, but avoiding crossfire takes only a little forethought, along with some roll-call training in order to put it into practice.

 

FIGHTING WITH LIGHT

Brute force, or as trainer Tom Benge says, “cubic inches” can make a big difference in a fight. But if your assailant is more versed in martial arts than you or the fight is blade- or projectile-based, you may be making a trip to the E.R. or worse. However, if your assailant can’s see you, he or she will have a much more difficult time harming you, especially if you don’t remain in the same place.
