Amen do not underestimate your enemies.
Get some dummy loads (snap caps) and mix them in with your live ammo when you are practicing. Not the same as a jam but it will at least force you to occasionally practice clearing the dummy load from your weapon.It was a good video; I think I'm up to par on all of the suggestions (I haven't cleared 1000 FTF, my damn gun doesn't jam enough: I guess I need to buy some more crappy reloads).

that is not true there alot of gangs sending there cleaner kids into the military to teach them what they learn upon getting outGood video, for sure!
BUUUT... though I appreciate the overall "you're underprepared, don't underestimate the enemy" message, I don't think it's particularly reasonable to compare SHTF to a war.
Looters and typical SHTF threats will not be military-grade soldiers. I fully understand that if I were to run into someone with military training, I'd be very lucky to survive at all. I also don't think I can reasonably prepare to be on par with that type of person -- I know I can't.
I prepare to defend against typical, maybe armed, looter types. That's what I'm capable of.
Thanks to you both, it's a good idea:thumb:thats what i do also helps identify flinching
that said I find the vid to be very good but i think people overplay the widespreadedness of the violence
and if someones in the bushes and is going to pop you on the way to the outhouse not much you can do about it
