u're nuts to swap ccw rigs, positions, guns

when it all hits the fan, you want your gun to just magically appear in your hand, (due to training and your mind being busy with other issues) you dont want to grab behind your hip, if today you're xdraw, you dont want to be trying to flip off a non existing safety, or forgetting to disengage one that IS present.

dont distract your mind by having to remember what you're using. your mind has to be evaluating hip shot with one hand, move to cover, are innocents in the way or behind the bad guy, do I have to brain him, use both hands, watch the front sight, or just point and fire? does he have buddies, who has a gun and who doesn't. ? who is closest, who is charging and who is fleeing?

anything that can be made into a conditioned reflex (like your draw) SHOULD be made so, and that's not going to happen if you have a "rotation" of guns, rigs, and locations that you wear them, unless you devote 20 hours a week to your draw practice, as I did for many years. EYE would not risk having different rigs or guns, so why would someone with less training risk doing so? only if they are ignorant, willfully stupid or uncaring. There's no reason to be any of those things.

And a "real genius" could keep defensive pistol threads out of the shotgun forum...

I never carry my shotgun any of those ways, and if is time to have a shotgun, it is already in my hands to begin with....

or are you incapable of posting in the correct forum, thus illustrating again your lack of focus or comprehension?

Melvin, some of us have a life outside of the fantasy world. The only person that you see devoting 20 hours a week to drawing a handgun will be a professional shooter who is paid to do it. There are more concerns in life other than the zombie apocalypse.

sure i can, but i dont gaf about dead assed subform titles. Nothing's being posted here about shotguns, and I like my stuff to be the headline in each sub-category so new viewers of this site can see something interesting and informative instead of your plinker/collector bs.

In other words you lack even basic discipline, and make up dumb excuses. You really aren’t fooling anyone.

Your excuses are laughable...

Just realized that this is probably in response to my thread about 'changing back to my normal edc' gun.

Fwiw, John, if you'd read the thread you would see that it was changing from an HK carried aiwb, to a glock carried aiwb. No change in position, holster type, etc. No change in manual safeties (neither gun has one), either.

I swap guns for EDC to see what better suits me. However all guns are carried OWB at 4 o'clock and ready to go with a trigger squeeze, so how is this confusing? When I carry a G21 in a shoulder rig I'm carrying as rifle of some sort also. How is this not wise? Also since you haven't carried anything in decades why would anyone listen to your advice?

new viewers see an idiot incapable of posting things where they belong. New users see you as a poser. What you think you accomplish and what you actually accomplish are far apart.

if you actually posted them where they belong, new users would see the new topics in the forums that interest them and they would read them. When they see the posts scattered all of the place, they think - this guy is an idiot who is incapable of even simple tasks, why would I take anything he posts seriously?

I've directed people to check this site out and tell me what they think. I don't set the stage, I just say its a gun board I found. So far 9 for 9 think you are a joke and that it is sad you can't follow simple rules. All of them said people would be dumb to listen to you.

Sorry Boati, but that is the way the world works. You don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

why not demonstrate the discipline, you claim to have, by doing things the right way?

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. So far you've been getting the same results for the same actions.

"this guy is an idiot who is incapable of even simple tasks"

"9 for 9 think you are a joke"

Mel has been this way for many years, anyone who has known him says the same thing.

He did this posting in the wrong sub forum even on his own site. When questioned about it ".22 in the Shotgun Forum" for example he would ignore the question or ban the member.. He'd talk endlessly about suppressors in every sub forum. Just weird.

It's like a thought pops into his head and wherever he is that exact moment, he clicks until he can post...if he would just slow down and put a little effort and thought into it, he'd be so much better off.
