People use the term "the ABCs" to refer to the basics, the building blocks. But recently, I got to thinking about the scene in a movie where Alec Baldwin berates a sales force to "Always Be Closing." He was just one word off! See, the "ABCs" of tactical preparedness, one of the fundamental building blocks, is that you should always be learning. Bec…
 
As we said a couple of podcasts ago, none of us is getting any younger. You know what they say about getting older: ...It sure beats the alternative! But as you age, you can't rely on size and strength like you once did. When it comes to self-defense, that means you can't "muscle through" techniques. Even when using weapons... ...A gun that you cou…
 
We're all about "defensive preparedness," am I right? After all... ...That's the whole POINT of carrying a gun. But if you're not training correctly, you might have a problem: You might NOT be getting better. If you make some simple, easy changes in how you train... ...Well, then you just might "level up" as a shooter. And that could give you the e…
 
None of us is getting any younger. You know what they say about getting older: ...It sure beats the alternative! But as you age, your strength and stamina diminish. You also may be dependent on medications. There are other issues, too, that could present survival challenges. Things that were easy at 20 years old become much harder at 50 and older f…
 
I got a question in our "tactical question box" recently. One of our followers wanted to know... ...How to deal with a multiple attacker home invasion! This is, of course, AFTER you've secured your loved ones and called 911. If you're about to face multiple aggressors in your own home with a firearm... ...What are the first, second, and third thing…
 
This Friday is Patriot Day in the United States. Coming up, I have a very personal, patriotic message to share with you... ...about life's realities for the MOST patriotic among us. As we prepare to rebrand from MCS to "Warrior Life," we're looking for like-minded people who want to help us accomplish what we're working toward. We want to learn fro…
 
It's like something out of a movie. A 17-year-old kid with an AR15 goes to volunteer at a political protest... ...And by the time he's done shooting, he's been charged with murder. There are a lot of people hailing Kyle Rittenhouse as a hero. There's no doubt that he was the more skilled shooter in Kenosha. But there are some "reality checks" we sh…
 
Last week, I covered survival tips from our readers, listeners, and followers. This week, we're talking GUNS. And I've learned some incredibly useful gun training tips from YOU. Remember, as we transition away from the MCS brand... ...we're looking for your input now more than ever. And these 5 gun training tips represent just how much knowledge YO…
 
I'm always looking for survival tips from our readers, listeners, and followers. And fans of Modern Combat & Survival do NOT disappoint. As we transition away from the MCS brand... ...we're looking for your input now more than ever. Because these 5 tips changed how I approach my own prepping. That's right: As much time as I spend training and learn…
 
It's an accessory we've all thought about buying. Gun-mounted lights for our CCW autos. There's no doubt that there are a LOT of whiz-bang, fancy gizmos out there. Some even lave lasers built right in. But do you NEED one of these things mounted on your gun's accessory rails? And if you DO add one... Are there hidden drawbacks you should be conside…
 
It's getting dangerous out there. Several times, vehicles have been surrounded on American streets... ...and people have DIED. It's amazing to think that it's come to this in the United States. And it's probably going to get worse before it gets better. But if a violent mob surrounded your car... ...would YOU have the equipment and the know-how to …
 
Not too long ago, one of our readers wrote to tell us... ...that he'd almost had a "road rage incident." And he almost used his Guardian Machete! But because he was one of our readers, he ALSO knew that in almost ANY incident like that... ...the LUCKY guy is the guy that goes to JAIL! But now he had a big problem. Because the guy he had been racing…
 
Have you heard about "Ken and Karen?" They're the couple with an AR15 who faced down a mob... ...And they're lucky to be alive! Their real names are Mark and Patricia McCloskey. After confronting the mob, they've been targeted for harassment... ...and they might still face legal charges. That's because, while it's great that they defend their home.…
 
Do you know what an "NPE" is? That's a "non-permissive environment"... ...Anywhere you absolutely CANNOT get caught with a gun. There are plenty of places where you can LEGALLY carry a gun, but you still can't afford to get caught with your weapon. That's where pocket pistols or "mouseguns" come in. There are other reasons people carry them, too. A…
 
Do you ever wonder if you're a "tacticool operator?" Are you starting to feel "red dot optics" pressure? Maybe there's a good reason for that! In the "old days" of combat handguns, iron sights were seen as enough. A lot of them were pretty small, too. These days, a lot of the most "tactical" gun guys are running red dot optics on their handguns. Sh…
 
Ever read about people arguing over "9mm vs. 45?" What about "birdshot for home defense" in a shotgun? Or maybe... Is the revolver obsolete for self-defense? These are all what I thought were old, OLD arguments, the kind of gun magazine debates we used to have in the early days of Internet forums. But you might be surprised, because... ...Some peop…
 
Have you thought about the need to become more "tactical?" Being "tactical" means something very specific: It means you're more prepared than the challenges that you'll come up against. It means that no matter what happens... ...you'll be ready... ...and you WON'T FIGHT FAIR! But how do you actually become "more tactical?" As it turns out, there ar…
 
This week on the MCS podcast, we're tackling a very special topic. Veteran suicide. You already know that the nation's soldiers fight to protect this nation. As we've said before, freedom isn't free. But those who experience, and survive combat, often pay a steep price: 22 soldiers take their own lives every single day. That's happening right now. …
 
The hooligans are out in the streets. They're rioting. They're looting. Following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody, the nation is burning. As this podcast is being recorded, there are over 5,000 National Guard troops deployed to urban protest areas around the country. But that protection is not for YOU. It'…
 
Yesterday was Memorial Day in the United States. Most people don't realize that Memorial Day goes all the way back to the Civil War. In modern times, we honor all those who died in the service of our military, protecting our freedom, on Memorial Day. Freedom isn't free, as the saying goes. But even those who survive war pay a steep price: 22 soldie…
 
What's the most expensive knife you own? Did it cost a hundred bucks? Two hundred? Maybe more? Well, let me ask you: How afraid are you of breaking or losing it? The reality is that while you should absolutely carry high-quality tools (and you get what you pay for)... ...You should ALSO carry an inexpensive knife for all those "dirty jobs" and high…
 
It's a perfectly normal human reaction. We've all had it. The problem is, this reaction... ...can lead to decisions... ...and those decisions MIGHT get you killed. That's why you need to get a handle on this right now. But in order to understand the true threat to your survival in any situation... ...We've got to take a long, hard look at some unco…
 
For the first time in our lives, many of us confronted something we had never expected to see: Completely empty store shelves. Yes, for years we've all joked about stores selling out of bread, milk, and even batteries before snow storms. But this is different. Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, everybody is coping with a shortage of some kind. And it…
 
Are you sick and tired of the pandemic yet? It has certainly upended all our lives. The fact is, though, while it's easy to fall into negativity... ...There comes a time when you have to dig deep and take back control. In other words, no matter how bad things get... ...YOU are the one with the power to change them. You cannot afford to give in to t…
 
The COVID-19 has profoundly changed our society and our world. The good news is that some of the worst predictions did not come true. The bad news, however, is that it's not over yet. We're experiencing an evolution, of sorts... ...and while there will be some positive outcomes, there will be many more challenges. We've got to learn from this if we…
