Rob had his people keep an eye out on the compound more closely. They noticed that very same night that there was indeed another group of people who snuck into the compound. It looked like it was two adults and a younger child around 12 years old. Brad had taken it upon himself to check and mark the vehicles in the area so he knew which ones had been there and which ones were new.

Haliday told them to use chalk and mark the inside of a tire so it wasn’t obvious. They could double up by placing a small stone just under a tire. If the first number in the license plate was an even number it went under the drivers front tire, if it was odd it went under the passenger front tire.

They had remembered the newer vehicles that popped up and checked them out. With the help of the auto parts store they were able to get two out of the three running and confiscated them. They would use them for now and then return them if they could convince the owners to leave.

The next 48 hours were spent on preparing for the assault. Brad had brought out groups of people who were given a crash course on tactics they would need to employ during the assault. Some basics on cover, fire, escape and evade. Not nearly enough training but more than any of them had ever had.

The exception was Brad was able to find 5 more veterans in the group to help them out and take on roles as squad leaders along with 3 police officers. One of the police officers whose name was Chuck had formal SRT training and picked a few guys out to help with building entry. There would be two teams for building entry.

After the initial assault, Mark would take over the main assault group while Haliday and Chuck split off with the two entry teams to do the building checks. Once they cleared the buildings another guy was assigned to lock them down. It was as simple as locking the door and then breaking a key of in the tumblers. They had a locksmith who could open them later.

They had found a couple more tractors to use and took them over to the metal fabrication shops in the area for armoring. They would armor the drivers front and the buckets or dozer blades. These were only going to be used for the assault. Just enough to get some guys in and breach one side of the compound. The south end was fairly accessible but most of the people and buildings were all at the north side of the airport.

They went through again and picked out the best hunters they could find. Each was assigned an area of the compound to cover. They were also each assigned spotters to watch out in the area for any surprises or attacks from the rear. They had no idea who might try and sneak up behind them or even if they would.

Brad had a stock full of tannerite targets. He asked Roger what they could do with them. Easy roger said. You lay a piece of scotch tape down, a line of heavy finishing nails on the tape and wrap it around the can of tannerite. Use the giant slingshot and launch them into the compound. The hunters will have a target full of flechette’s to fire on. You could also use BB's.

The militia won’t want to touch them or come close after a few go off. Try and launch a bunch simultaneously and have the guys shoot them simultaneously as well. That will be a huge psychological kick in the pants. After word gets out when one lands near someone they’ll want to leave. Brad looked at him, you’re a sick man. Guerrilla warfare Brad, that’s all it is. The days of taking twenty paces and dueling with pistols ended awhile ago he replied.

They wrangled up as many tires as they could. They placed them around the outside of the compound in stacks. The militia laughed at them. Those things wouldn’t stop a 22 round was what they were thinking. What they didn’t know was that these would be lit on fire to create a smoke screen to help block some of their activities and to smoke out the militia as much as possible.

Haliday had them gather up bricks from the brickyard and use those to reinforce some of their fighting positions around the compound. He also had them place a good number of spike strips along the roads so any vehicles making a run for it would get flat tires. They would let people go but would have to make their point so the militia would know it was over and they would be expected to disband completely.

Roger made sure that the guys that would be entering the compound and buildings had mirrors to use, These were simple contraptions made of compact mirrors from the cosmetic counter of the drug store, shortened broom sticks and duct tape. Simple, effective and cheap. Easily tossed aside or thrown away with no bother of how much they had cost.

Haliday covered clothing with the guys. Make sure you do not wear any camo. We can not have anyone getting hit by friendly fire. You have all seen that they wear the Russian camo and know what it looks like. Wear plain black or regular clothes. Make sure they are loose enough to give when you move but tight enough so they do not get caught on stuff. Your shoes are important as well. Boots with ankle support are the best option, avoid tennis shoes.

Everybody gather around me Haliday said. I’m going to cover the rules of engagement. No children are to be fired upon unless they are actively firing on you. Anyone else that is armed and engaged is fair game. If they drop their weapons and surrender you zip tie their hands behind their backs. We shoot to neutralize the threat. Whats that mean he heard someone holler. Kill he answered back.

He made a quick count of the people involved. There were almost 120 of them total. These people were starting to get hungry and that meant they were ready to fight. They were starting to realize real quickly now what was happening and what their future held. It wasn't just them, it was their families as well.

He called everyone close in. I have a little speech to give here people. I hope it does'nt change your minds about anything. People are going to die. That is a cold hard fact you all need to come to grips with. The fight is being taken to them because if you don’t they will become stronger and you will become weaker.

There are no ifs, and's or buts in this. It’s a matter of getting it done and getting it done the right way, and right now. As corny as it sounds, and as often used as it is in the movies, look around you. This is the reason you are fighting. This is who depends on you. This is who you must depend on. With that being said, depends might not be a bad option, some of yo will **** your pants. He got quite a few chuckles at that. Even though it was probably true.

Any questions before we leave? There weren’t any. Just a lot of thank yous, good lucks and prayers. Haliday shook Robs hand and Brads hand. I’ll see you all in the morning. Haliday and Mark headed back to the house. They walked in and the mood was somber. He knew what they were thinking, he said I’m not going over it all again ok. Its gotta be done, plain and simple.

Made my trip to Illinois and back to see my daughter, all is well. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, hope everyone is safe this season. I'm taking tomorrow off after work to celebrate with family. No piece tomorrow, but you folks understand.

#68
Morning came and Mark and Haliday were ready to go. When they went downstairs everyone was there waiting for them. A lot of hugs and kisses. Kayla walked up and gave Blake a hug. She went over to Roger and gave him a big hug with tears in her eyes. You better be coming home. You promise me that dad.

I can’t promise you that sweetheart. What I can promise you is that I will do everything I can to make it happen. I want you to know how proud of you I am. I could never have asked for a better daughter who has grown into a fantastic young woman. You can accomplish anything you want in life kiddo, never give up, take care of the family here, you’re the boss for now.

Haliday and Mark got into the jeep and took off, they didn’t say a word to one another on the way there. They just went over the assault plans in their heads. They arrived at the police station. Everyone else started to arrive as well. Haliday pulled out big pot and a bunch of Styrofoam bowls. One of the folks took charge and started doling out oatmeal with banana’s in it that haliday had brought.

He also had made some coffee at the police station and handed out some granola bars along with pitchers of tang. It was a meager meal but still hit the spot. He put a few bags of chocolate candy on the tables for some more sugar. Haliday talked with Rob a bit. You guys are getting one hell of a bill for my consultancy fee here. Rob asked him if he took cash. Oh, now you have jokes, huh Rob?

Haliday and Mark had their radios with them and they brought two extra hand helds for Rob and Brad. They had five mobile units from the vehicles they acquired and placed one at each corner of the perimeter they had set up around the compound. From there they should be able to coordinate the assault.

Everyone had made it in and Haliday did another quick count. They had actually gained about 10 more members. The doctor approached and introduced another doctor and three nurses. They had gathered as many medical supplies as they could and had an area prepared for medical treatment in the conference room of the police station. Anyone wounded they planned to put in an office next to the police station for now.

Move them out Rob. Haliday and Mark went and got ready as well. Haliday had his faithful old Armalite AR180 with him. He chose it over a short barreled AR15 because of the folding stock and usefulness in close quarters. Chuck had his own entry weapon of choice which was an MP5. After the initial assault they would meet up with their teams and start the building clearing.

Everyone had gotten into position. The day time assault was a big risk but they took it because it would help level the field. No night vision goggles, no night vision scopes, plain sight, easy to discern friendly from foe and the daytime conditions would allow the hunters with their scoped rifles to maximize their ability.

The militia compound was ready for the attack. As soon as they had seen the attack mounting they had sounded their alarm and everyone was in position. They sat there and waited. Halidays group sat there and waited. He called them on the ham. We are going to give you the opportunity to surrender. The response came quickly. Negative, disband and go home.

Roger called them again and explained it all to them. Listen, this is how it is. You can surrender and we can go from there, if not its going to be ugly for both sides. You have women and children in there who don’t deserve this. It’s the best option for everyone involved so lets work this out. A one word response came. Negative.

Haliday mumbled to himself. “What was that song from that stupid movie small soldiers, some spice girl song, wish I had that right now.” I’ll tell you want what I really really want. Oh great he said, I’m going to die with that stupid song in my head. Mark looked at him, whats wrong? You don’t want to know he replied.

One more try. Haliday said Listen in there, a lot has happened, a lot will happen and we don’t need to go down that road. Anyone who wants to give up and go home can do so now. We’ll give you one hour to decide. After that we may take action. Don’t be stupid, listen to us, come on guys, no one wants to die today. All he heard was screw you. Ok he said, One hour, time has started.

Haliday had told everyone to expect what came next. The militia started firing on the groups positions in order to try and gain an edge during the assault. They fired a lot of rounds into the barricades, towards the tree line and everywhere else. The group didn’t fire a single shot back. Not a single person even got hit as they maintained cover.

Haliday had what he wanted, the proof that the militia would not make a deal and firing first meant just that. They gave them a chance and refused it. Haliday had a few guys fire a couple of rounds towards the compound but not at anyone in particular. This drew another barrage of fire from the militia. He clicked the radio. 45 minutes left.

Time was counting down, the militia was persistent in not giving up. Haliday gave them one last warning. You have 5 minutes left. Last chance for anyone wanting to leave to get out now. Come on out with your hands empty, no questions asked and we will take care of you and get you to safety. He waited the five minutes and switched the channel to his own. Game on folks, good luck, god speed, fire when you have a target.

Haliday had made sure they didn’t have a sniper on the roof of the admin building. This would have been the first man to go. They learned their lesson the hard way by taking hits on that position. He searched the property with his spotting scope and had everyone else looking as well. They had to make sure they didn’t have one hidden. Haliday was convinced no one in the compound had higher ground.

Haliday loaded an armor piercing round into the Barret he had liberated and fired on his first target. This was the lock on the door of the building holding prisoners. He saw they had another lock and hasp on the door and he fired on that one too. He waited patiently but no one came out. They would check this building out as soon as they could. There was some return fire from the militia but nothing to worry about. They couldn’t reach his position.

Over on the north end of the compound came over 30 shots from 4 different men. These were all concentrated on the militias prized deuce, or actually the tires. They flattened as many as they could rendering the up armored pig useless. All they had to rely on now was the regular compliment of vehicles that they had.

Haliday took aim at target number three. He hated to do it, but he had to. He zeroed in on the front tire of their fuel truck and flattened it. He shifted his aim slightly and flattened the other front tire. Both the fuel truck and deuce were now out of commission. He started to hear some sporadic gun fire from all sides of the airport.

As he searched out some more targets he gave the order to start the tires on fire. They had some small balloons of gas placed in them and the guys tossed some road flares into them. The thick black smoke started to fill the air in those areas as the tires burned. Nobody was sure how long they would burn but anything helped at this point.

One of the guys throwing the flares took a round to the shoulder. This was only the first of many casualties to come. The men around him fired into the compound and allowed him the chance to get to safety so he could be treated. They had one man and a woman nurse dedicated to picking up the injured with a four wheeler. They’d be busy today.

Every story has "Faithful" and "Trusty" firearms.

They seem to be popular.

Where can I buy these brands?



Merry Xmas

Haliday scanned the south end of the compound. The stacks of bricks they were able to get in place were still there. The front loader was still sitting where it had stalled out. Haliday got a hold of Rob. Rob, get some people over to the west breach and see if you can get that front loader started. Get some people into those brick emplacements. Rob told him the front loader stalled out.

Roger asked him what happened. Rob told him it overheated. Well, try it anyways, if it didn’t seize it may start, you can use it to at least get some guys into those positions. Rob made the arrangements and got everyone in place. He gave a command and the whole south end started popping as 5 guys ran to the loader. The militia positions were quiet as they held their heads down.

The group made it to the loader and sure enough it started. The guys just jumped on and the guy driving it went straight to the brick emplacements where he dropped off two guys at each one. He turned around and headed back towards the west breach and almost made it before the engine seized up. The radiator had taken hits the last time and stalled out but this time it was dead for sure with the seized engine. The driver jumped down and used it as cover.

Haliday moved to another position so he could fire past the emplacements without worrying about the guys being in a crossfire. He told the men with the hunting rifles to try and take shots at the militia positions. They needed to take out 3 of the 5 positions that could cover the south end if they expected to get the building entry teams in there and continue to take some of the compound.

Haliday moved over towards the west breach area himself now and took a look. He looked over at Rob. Grab your binoculars, look at that the position on the west corner of that building. We need to take out that one and the ones on each side of it. Tell them that’s what the plan is. Rob sent a couple of runners out to the towns snipers and word spread. He used some hand signals and eventually got the point across to the guys behind the bricks and front loader.

Over towards the north side of the compound Mark and Brad got the men ready. They used some probing fire to see where the militias strong points were. Mark told Brad to go launch some cans at the admin building. These were pulled out of the hunting shop and were merely cans of gel fuel. They had close to a hundred of them. They partially unscrewed the lids and launched them all towards the admin building. Almost half had hit the building and quite a few landed on the roof. The tops popped off and the gel ran every where.

One of the towns people tried to launch a flare onto the roof but couldn’t get the distance he needed with the giant sling shot. After a couple of failed attempts he resorted to attempting to use some fireworks but couldn’t get the angle. He risked moving in closer and was met with a few rounds into his chest. Mark had told them to abandon the attempt if it didn’t work with the flares but the guy must have insisted. They had to leave him lay where he was.

Haliday was concentrating on the center militia position. He saw the muzzle of the rifle above the sand bags. He took aim and fired a shot. It was off but close enough to let the guy know he was being watched. He saw the muzzle shift. Haliday gave it one more shot and fired into the sand bags but still had no luck. Haliday moved backwards and into the trees where he looked around.

There was a man up in a tree stand with his rifle pointed towards the compound. Roger asked him, “Hey, you can’t see these guys at all?” The man said not enough to get a good center mass shot. Roger asked him what he could see. The guy told him once in awhile he could see the top half of a head. Take the damn shot Roger told him. Forget that center mass bull****.

The man steadied his rifle and kept aim at the militia position. Haliday was crouched down low and looked at his watch. After almost 5 minutes he was about to climb the tree himself when he heard the shot. He looked up and jumped to the side just in time as the man threw up. The guy had taken a perfect shot from ear to ear cutting a channel through the militia members head.

Haliday yelled up to him, its them or you, get the hell out if you can’t hang or get ready to do it again. The man said he’d be ok. Roger asked him if there was anyone else in the position there and the guy told him no, it looked like just one guy. What about the ones to the left and right Roger asked? Looks like two in each. Ok, keep your rifle on them, take the kill shots, you’re doing good he told the man.

Roger moved back towards the west breach area. Chuck was still there. What do you think Roger? Chuck, I think we need to get our asses in there as soon as possible. The center position has been taken out, we need to get the ones on the sides of it. Lets try and work on the one to the right first. How we going to do that Chuck asked. Give me a minute to think about it Chuck.

Haliday thought for a few minutes. He called Rob over, look, this is what we’re going to do. We have concentrate fire on the southeast side. A light rate of fire. We need these guys to shift in their positions. At the same time I need the east side to have some men move in a little closer, not try and rush the east side, just make a few good attempts to get in closer. Rob said he would get it taken care of. You wait for my signal Rob, I’m going to have Mark pop a few rounds of smoke over there.

Rob headed over to the east side in the four wheeler and told the guys what they were going to do. The men who volunteered got ready while over on the west side Haliday told the towns snipers what to do. Haliday himself climbed up into a tree and got ready as well. He could hardly see the guys behind their fighting positions, admittedly it was harder than he thought.

He took aim on the inside of the fighting position and keyed his mic. Mark, do it now. Mark launched 4 rounds of smoke towards the east perimeter and Rob had some of the guys fire into the eastside positions as four of the guys made short advances through the woods to get closer. The advancing men just concentrated on getting closer and they fired just a few rounds from the sks’s they had.

Rob was helping them suppress the militia on this side. He spotted the militia shift in their positions to provide more return fire towards the advancing towns people. One of the militia was able to fire towards the advancing men and struck one in the abdomen. This man went down and crawled behind a tree. Rob and the rest of his men opened up.

Haliday was aiming at the sandbag and saw the color change in his scope. He fired the round and watched it penetrate the mans back square between his shoulders. The man went forward and Haliday could only see his arm and hand on his rifle. Haliday fired another shot and the mans hand came off at the wrist. Haliday knew the guy was dead from the first round but with Haliday himself going in soon he was just making sure.

The men firing with Haliday managed to wound two and kill one more. Out of the three positions they still had one fully capable militia, two injured and two dead. Going into the compound directly from the south was their best option. Chuck came over and Haliday explained the change in plans and they moved the two building entry teams to the south.

Back up towards the main gate Mark ordered them to launch a dozen of the tannerite cans. They made a last minute change and used fluorescent green highlighters to paint up the tape so they could be spotted more easily. A few didn’t make it over the line of cars the militia was using up there but that worked out in Marks favor.

Mark had one of the guys fire at one. The can exploded in front of the cars and they could hear the nails peppering the sheet metal. The militia just kind of looked at each other. One more exploded and the nails flew everywhere. The militia looked around and saw a few of these laying on the ground behind them. They didn’t know what to do with them.

Mark had the guys pepper the whole north side of the compound and around the admin building with the remaining tannerite cans they had. Haliday and Chucks teams each had 5 of their own that they would use. These were turning out to be nice little devices. Haliday was surprised he hadn’t thought of it before.

quite a firefight.
surprised the townspeople have'nt thought of useing plastic drink bottles of gas thrown ointo the airport by mechanical means. then ignited with flare/fireworks.
this would cause some confusion in the compound and the backlight would give the marksmen better aiming

Mark had them blow a few more tannerite cans and the word had thoroughly spread throughout the militia what these things were about. They all kept a very close eye on them. A few of the militia had taken their jackets off and tossed them trying to cover the cans up. One guy managed to cover up the one by him and then he shot it himself. Kind of like the redneck who says, hey y’all, watch this. Fortunately the jacket contained the nails, although it was fairly well shredded.

Haliday was ready to move in. He was behind the wheel of his jeep and he had 4 other men with him. One in the passenger seat, one on each nerf bar and one in the back seat. He had Rob behind the wheel of the four wheeler and the rest of Chucks entry team barely hanging on so they could exit quickly. Haliday had secured the Barret and was ready with his pistol and AR180.

Each team was four men. Two with shotguns, two with AR’s and everyone had pistols with them as well. Haliday was the only one carrying a smith. The rest had glocks. He never liked glocks, something about a pistol that was dishwasher safe didn’t appeal to him. That and the fact that once on the range at the police station years back he watched a hot reload blow the top of the grip off of one. The guy ended up with 25 stitches. He had 7 magazines for his so he didn’t worry too much about interchanging mags.

The plan was not as suicidal as it sounded. They had the two injured and one full bodied man to deal with. With any luck they would already be neutralized before they got there. Haliday clicked his mic, ok everyone, we are a go. Haliday and Rob had about 450 yards to go and left one after the other.

As they approached the southern buildings they criss crossed paths a couple of times and would widen and narrow their space between them to try and randomize their approach and throw off the target acquisition anyone might have on them. The groups on the east and west side started firing into the militia positions while the snipers looked for targets.

One of the injured militia raised himself up to take aim on the approaching vehicles. He went down before he could pull the trigger on them. The other militia positions on the east and west sides didn’t have enough cover to help out. To shift fire and help out would mean exposing themselves and possibly be over run themselves. They continued their fight to the east and west.

Of the three positions they needed to neutralize the center one was empty. The one to the east only had one injured man left, this was where Rob was heading. The one Haliday was near was the one to worry about. They still had that one guy in there with his injured partner. Haliday kept a steady pace as he approached it.

The west tree line positions opened up with everything they had. As the jeep came to a stop the men on the nerf bars hit the ground running and fired into the position as the other two exited the jeep. The return fire dropped one of the men with a hit to the chest and one to the mans leg. The other three advancing men fired into the position with 10 rounds of buck shot and a full 30 round magazine.

The guy was hit multiple times and the advancing men heard screams from the other man who had been injured and was laying down on the ground with his hands in the air pleading to not be shot. One of the advancing members rolled the guy over and placed handcuffs on him and left him there. Haliday moved the jeep towards the building as they rushed towards the last of the three positions.

Robs four wheeler approached and before it even came to a stop the militia member came up firing. Chuck who was next to Rob fired back along with the other two. One of the men in the back fell off the four wheeler and tumbled along the ground dead. A sniper from the east side had to fire three shots but hit the injured militia member ending his life.

The militia group on the east fired up into the trees when they spotted this man and hit him. The man had only been hit in the leg but lost his footing on the reversed tree stand and fell to the ground breaking his arm and some ribs. He laid there unable to move and the militia finished him off as he laid there trying to get behind the tree.

Marks area was much harder to assault. With most of the buildings and fortifications in place on the north side it was hard for them to find suitable targets. Mark ordered a cease fire unless the snipers could definitely get a shot in. They couldn’t afford to waste any more ammunition on just trying to suppress fire.

He called over to Brad. We need to see about getting these people moving and exposed. See if they can fire into any of the tannerite cans and lets see what happens. If we can’t get to them it’s a waste of our effort. Brad and Mark both passed the word along. A few of the guys started to take some shots on the tannerite cans hoping to hit them.

One of the cans near one of the militias northeast positions exploded sending its nails flying. The two people in the fighting position were hit causing multiple cuts on their backs and the backs of their necks. Two nails embedded themselves in one of the mens neck. He reached around and tried to remove them but his jacket was in the way.

The other man moved over quickly to help him out. Mark saw this and waited. When the man went back to his side of the fighting position Mark fired and struck the man in the left arm and shoulder. The militia called in for aid and this is when they discovered the situation was worse than they thought it was. They were on their own with what they had with them.

The deuce couldn’t provide cover for delivery or extraction. The militia would have to stand their ground the best they could until the opportunity arose when someone could get more supplies to them. They had plenty of rounds just no food or first aid capability for those who needed medical treatment.

Mark called a cease fire again. He told everyone to save their rounds and not to fire on the tannerite anymore until they could plan a new strategy. Mark called Haliday. Roger, hows it going down there? Haliday responded. We are in the perimeter, we have most of the south side now, I need you to get some guys down here and help take out the other two positions.

Mark and Brad gathered a few guys together and went around to the south side of the airport. Once there he assigned 4 guys to move forward to the brick emplacements and then work there way forward to take over the militia emplacements which had been seized. They would have to alter the positions to make them more effective but right now they would serve them well enough.

Mark would then concentrate on helping Rob and the rest of the guys take the other positions out of service. With Haliday and Chucks entry teams clearing the three most southern buildings they would use these to help continue moving the assault closer to the admin building and motor pool building. In between these buildings and the ones Haliday would take were the food and supply storage buildings.

Over by the northeast corner of the compound some of the towns people started to take fire from behind them. They scrambled for cover as they were now practically caught in a crossfire. The militia had a couple of members heading their way and they had stopped to wait out the assault and then help if they could. One militia vehicle had come up directly from the east and was now in a position to help out.

True that. I have a couple of 5906 and had a 915, you can not best a 3rd gen S&W. Sweeper80 is also a fan. They always go bang with any ammo and that cold steel feels well like cold steel. If it is good enough for Sonny Crockett it is good enough for me

My favorite I keep picking up and taking with me is my S&W 411 in .40cal. Prefer it over my sig 226 and glock 22 which I had to have for the PD but now it collects dust.

Yup

Wowee's right, damned near impossible to beat a good ol' fashioned made in American blued steel and aluminum, 15 round capacity S&W!

They just have that "feel," wifey liked my first 915 so much she "claimed" it as her own, giving me an excuse to go out and buy more

Plus, those 59's and 915's are accurate as hell, one of my favorite things to do is bounce little green propane tanks down the road with mine............
