Shooting and gunfighting aren’t the same thing. Shooting and gunfighting aren’t the same thing. You may be able to nail the bull’s-eye every time at an indoor range or competition stage, and that’s a good sign that your fundamentals are solid. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re prepared for the enormous physiological, mental, and environmental challenges of a real-world defensive situation. Ideally, you should spend time honing both your technical shooting skills and your defensive gunfighting skills. OFFGRID Staff @pmccarthy10 recently attended back-to-back Fieldcraft Survival Gunfighter Pistol and Gunfighter Carbine classes with instructor @hunter_constantine that addressed both of these important elements.

From OFFGRID staff @pmccarthy10: Communication is From OFFGRID staff @pmccarthy10: Communication is important in a variety of emergency scenarios, but the recent invasion of Ukraine has illustrated that attempting to use unencrypted comms under the wrong circumstances can be a death sentence. I’ve heard numerous recordings of intercepted chatter from Baofengs and cell phones, and even some reports that these unsecured calls led to targeted strikes on their points of origin.  A few weeks ago, @offgridcomms sent a few of their Motorola XTS encrypted radios to me and @tom.marshall.author. They’re legal for use by civilians under Off Grid Comms’ license, and use the professional-grade P25 digital standard backed by AES-256 encryption. As an added bonus, these radios also operate on GMRS channels 1-7 and 15-20.  Today, I took another step towards integrating these radios into my existing gear by pairing them with a @safarilandgroup Liberator V headset and dual-comm PTT.  Currently, one of these radios is set up for VHF and the other for UHF. I also plan to experiment with running one alongside an unencrypted analog radio for added versatility (i.e. checking NOAA weather reports and local ham repeaters).  #communications #comms #encryption #emergencypreparedness #comsec #recoiloffgridmagazine
