    Sounds simple but anyone that has instructed firearms classes will tell how half the guys that come with tricked out rifles can't do the "simple" tasks above.
    This most certainly.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    SHTF can be many things on many levels. It is more than military training. You may be alone or with your family out in a rural area without power, water, food, etc. I have a copy of The Illustrated Doom Survival Guide by Matt "Doomsday" Victor which tells you, situation by situation, how do survive. I think it is valuable. There are some videos on youtube showing how to make fire without that fire being observed, Dakota Pit Fires. There are also videos on all night fires, and strange fire set ups for other situations.

    Having gotten that off my chest, thanks, guys, for the link and recommendation of the Ranger book. This looks great.

    I second MVT's classes. They are designed for the citizen warrior.

    Thanks! Downloaded and queued for reading.

    Is there any better way to know a book is bad ass than to have a warning right on the cover that says "Not for the weak or fainthearted" plus a quote from Maj Rogers instructing you to let the enemy get close then finish him with your hatchet? Probably not...

    Edited to add:

    It's been a few years of mostly sitting on ass and running my mouth instead of my rifle...I definitely need to do more training!

    Another +1 for MVT's classes. I would love to go back soon, but life got in the way.

    You can get MVT's "Tactical Manual" on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/15...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Obviously not going to be as useful as taking a class, but more suited for the average citizen than the Ranger Handbook might be.
