    I recommended the P239, which is a single stack handgun. Notice the middle digits?
    Yet you are posting about a double stack pistol in a thread about a compact single stack pistol. Also, Sig Sauer acknowledged the problems the NJSP has with the P229. You really do not know anything about guns.

    Rule 1: The ONLY way to survive a gunfight is to not get in one.

    Rule 2: If Rule One is unavoidable, don't get shot.

    That's all the training you're gonna get from me. The rest oughta be in your trained killer manual.
    Good for you. Write a book about that. LOL. It's obviously nonsense, but hey, that's exactly your department.

    You seemed to be focused on "trained killers". I suggest some professional help for your obsession with that.

    If you think that the two rules of gunfighting are nonsense, you're beyond help. Leave you gun at home. Carry a cell phone. Call professionals. They'll seize control of any situation in which you'll find yourself unable to prevail.

    With your vast firearms knowledge, you don't need me. You should be teaching your local law enforcement agencies how to survive, hip point techniques, and hood hold. That hood hold just about destroyed your illusion of firearms knowledge. Holding your head is a complete waste of a good hand that has tactical benefit except for those of your dim bulb wattage.

    Let me help you out just a little because I can wax benevolent at times: at 6', hip pointing distance, you're probably going to take rounds. If your hand's on your head scratching fleas, you'd surrender your fat ass as an easy target. Survivors know to be ready to swipe a bad guy's gun that's pointed at him. There is zero benefit and and infinite detriments to the hood hold. Your gun should be tucked into your hip and pointed at your threat. Your first shot should be as soon as you clear leather.

    There is a huge difference between your trained killer training and professional firearms training. Professionals are trained to avoid, and engage to win when avoidance is not an option. Winning is not dying.

    Why don't you watch your local cops train? Sure, they won't have your advanced trained killer abilities, and a man of your vast firearms knowledge can't learn from professionals, but you can offer to critique their deficiencies. Remember to tell them about the hood hold, scratching fleas, and to rap while they're shooting. They'll appreciate your vast pseudo-knowledge.

    My advice to you is to avoid carrying a handgun until you acquire skills.

    Go back and reread the 2 rules of gunfighting. Commit them to memory. They'll keep you alive.

    bofh,

    You have a lot of problems, most of which point to narcissism. You'll never admit when you're wrong, and you have a pronounced aura of superiority because you've graduated from advanced wannabe elite trained killer institute of pseudo-knowledge. Get yourself a script for xanax, learn breathing techniques, and open your mind to the possibility that what you know might get you killed. And stay away from medical marijuana. Even for medical use, it'll cause you to take to the sky with diamonds for Lucy.

    If you think the woman in that photo is trained, you might not be amenable to remediation.

    Buy this book: https://secure.calibrepress.com/shop...ed-encounters/ You'll gain valuable knowledge that you desperately need. I'm sure that your trained killer school didn't mention this book because its instructors were unaware of its publication. But because it's the way that I roll, I'm giving you the most knowledge you've ever received at any of your trained killer courses. And you'll know just how fallible control techniques are (trained killer martial arts). A bad dude of normal height and build will not allow you to subdue him if he doesn't want to submit. Not even Grasshopper would've prevailed. Take the same bad dude dusted, and he'll form you into a perfect three loop Snyders, take your gun, and shove it up your ass.

    Finally, try to find professional training videos produced by Captain Rich Wemmer, LAPD. His videos are among the best produced. If there's a college or university nearby your crib, it might have copies of some of his professional training videos. I'll caution you up front that you won't see a hood hold or flea scratching in his videos. What you will see are tactics of survivors.

    Sig Sauer manufacturers the best professional handguns. I'm not sure what's happened with the New Jersey shipment and what cartridge was involved. But I will tell you that it's logical fallacy to try to disprove a rule by citing a very rare exception. I will tell you definitively that the Sig P229 chambered in .40 S&W is the most reliable handgun I've ever carried, and I'm including revolvers. I've sent God only knows how many thousands of rounds downrange outta it w/o a single malfunction of any kind, during bad weather, muddy conditions, and bright So Cal days. I've even had in dipped in sand. I pulled the trigger and it worked as advertised. A revolver would never withstand the punishment my P229 has endured.

    My guess is you're a Glock shooter.

    bofh,

    Here's the description of Street Survival found at Calibre Press's Website:

    "Reading this book is like riding with a thousand street-wise officers and tapping into the collective wisdom they've learned the hard way. A wealth of practical information on how to avoid a shooting confrontation… and how to win if one is unavoidable. Cited often in lawsuits as "the standard of performance" required of law enforcement today."

    There are the two primary rules of gufighting that you think are nonsense. And you want to be thought of as trained? My dog is better trained, and a whole lot nicer and far more handsome. If you looked like him, you could score dates.

  7. Lol. You really are a piece of work. At least your posts are entertaining. They don't hold any good information but at least we get a good chuckle.

    I'd rather be a piece of work than to be worked. But I'm neither.

    Speaking of being worked, have you had a CAT scan to detect CTE? All of those dojo blows might have left you imbalanced.

    You ain't half-bad. Get beyond Kwai Cheng Caine (Grasshopper), Bruce Lee, and Chuck Norris, all of which performed choreographed fight scenes, and you'll be headed toward reality. None of 'em would have whipped a journeyman boxer.

    My high school friend who went on to win the heavyweight kickboxing championship of the world and is in the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame: United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame told me decades ago that if he didn't want a bad ass to put his arm behind his back (a very common defensive move) he wasn't going to submit to it.

    Martial arts works in closely regulated environments. "No! No, you gotta throw the punch this way so I can show you what I can do!"

    When I was a teenager and morons believed what they saw on TV programs and movies, a kung fu expert signed to fight a similar sized professional boxer. I want to say that it was either Danny "Indian Red" Lopez or Mando Ramos. The fight was in Hawaii. The first round was a draw. What the martial artist didn't figure out was that the boxer was measuring him for a KO, which he did, in the 2nd round.

  9. Thanks again. Lol

    Well, well, well, you seem very angry. Your post just shows how little you know, that you had zero training, and that you don't respect people that do know more that you do and that do have training.

    Your "2 rules of gunfighting" are nonsense:

    Rule 1: The ONLY way to survive a gunfight is to not get in one.: People that survived gunfights beg to differ. Rule #1 is therefore disproven.

    Rule 2: If Rule One is unavoidable, don't get shot.: That's not a rule at all. It depends on the situation if one gets shot.

    As for what you call "hood hold", if you mean holding the gun sideways instead of vertical, then you are simply wrong and don't even know why. There is a very good reason not to hold the handgun vertical when shooting it from this position. I am pretty sure you do NOT know why. If you do, here is the chance to prove that you have at least some knowledge.

    As for the hand protecting you head and neck, that's how modern firearms training teaches close combat. While you try to push the threat away with your offhand, the threat will hit you simply in the head and you will go down with one punch. You may be able to get one or two rounds off and you may be even hit the attacker, you you will still get knocked out. Then the attacker then finishes you off with a contact head shot and runs away. Good luck with that technique. I have presented you with two reputable firearms trainers that teach differently. You have presented me with exactly nothing.

    I train with active and retired law enforcement and military, as they are taking the same classes. You train with nobody.

    You only purpose on here seems to be to belittle people. You had and still have a chance to prove me wrong, but so far, you have resulted to name calling and not actual arguments.

    It is interesting that you continue to belittle a woman that you never met and that has done nothing to you. That clearly shows your character. This photo is from a beginners class, by the way. A petite woman trying to learn how to defend herself should be commended and not belittled.

    Recommending a book from 1987 about street survival tells me a lot about you. Principles of Personal Defense is a better book anyway. As for training videos, you may want to update your knowledge by several decades and watch the videos Rob Pincus puts out on his Personal Defense Network.

    You still seem to be upset about that sideways hold of a handgun, yet clearly have no idea why professional firearms schools train that these days.

    About the Sig P229, if you actually read up on this topic you would know what happened. Sig Sauer representatives witnessed it first hand. The word is that it is the combination of the gun and the training ammunition.

    Yes, I carry primarily Glocks, just like most law enforcement officers and MARSOC do. What does that have to do with anything, other than yet another attempt of belittling someone you just can win an argument against?
