Military And Combat Survival
Regarding combat survival training and the defensive use of firearms a lot of myths have evolved over time that we hope to dispell thorough this series of articles.
Weapons are not all created equal and each combat situation is different; from these two factors a lot of true and apocryphal stories have emerged and these became the folklore of both gun enthusiasts and detractors. Nobody seems to agree whether weapons are good or bad, what the effect of projectiles really is, the range of guns, whether revolvers are better than pistols or vice versa, shootgans over assault rifles, the need for regulations or not, the qualities of hollow point over full metal, jacketed ammunition and so on.
As all this has a lot to do with survival training we have decided to strt commenting on these issues in order to larify ideas and provide some useful knowledge. We are not going to adopt a posture in favour or against gun ownership or use, or any sort of particular gun design; we try to see things from a practical, hands on viewpoint, assuming that weapons are here to stay and will not fade away anytime soon, whether we like them or not. Thus, if they constitute part of our reality we have to learn how to deal with them.
The use and effects of firearms have become a taboo of sorts: These are unquestionable aspects of guns, while detractors and gun-ban or control advocates develop their own ideas about the social effects of the existence of guns, particularly among civilians. Most of the times, in our view, both prties tend to err.
Firearms have essentially far more range than other, more ancient weapons; whether this is advantageous for society or not is something that deserves a debate.
Far from any politically motivated argument, firearms will not cease to exist in the same way that archery is still in place and crossbows today are as lethal as they were in the middle ages, or perhaps even more. The fact that guns may be totally taken out of civilans´ hands - at least those that are respectful of the law - means very little or nothing: Criminals - the kind of people willing to use guns against others with no provocation - will continue to get them in the black market and military or security forces will still carry them daily, and history tells us that official representatives of any state may turn authoritarian at any moment.
