J.C. Dodge: Fundamentals


J.C. Dodge offers another excellent post on the fundamentals that must be considered before Americans begin candidly expressing their political differences of opinion on a daily basis.  J.C. is one of the few trainers who takes the time to share his knowledge of the basics.  A post discussing ruck mods, or combat smocks, is hardly as glamorous and "cool" as post after post discussing 600-yard kill shots from a slick & tricked AR.  But if you die of hypothermia in the woods because you didn't think about what pants you'd wear during extended operations in a cold, wet spring or fall season - well, that would suck.  J.C. takes the time to truly educate Patriots on all aspects of what they need to know - not simply SUT drills and where to stick a knife into a bad guy.

Here's his post.  I commend it to you all.  I also suggest you give real thought to all aspects of your gear - not just the fun boom-sticks and shiny blades.  Hygiene and weather will likely kill more people than bullets in RevWarIII.  Don't be that guy who dies because you didn't think of the basics, got wet and cold and died of pneumonia.

And when you are ready to take your AR or sidearm or SUT skills to the next level, get yourself enrolled in one of J.C.'s classes at Mason Dixon Tactical.

  1. I know Dodge is your buddy and its his rice bowl and all , but Nylon clothing is the LAST thing I'd have on in the bush. I worked for ten years with a USFS subcontractor called "WOODLAND MANAGMENT Corp." we used to refer to Nylon clothing as a "Napalm bodysuit" cause it has the nasty trait of melting , catching fire and sticking to EVERYTHING it touches . That and NYCO. fabric has the lifespan of a mayfly in the "wait a min." snags. If I ever have to spend weeks on end wet & cold in the under brush , its WOOL, Cotton , or polyester/cotton. We keep going on about resistance tactics. But no one seems to think that the OPFOR will use HE . WP and "other". In other words things that will set them woods y'all plan on working in, on FIRE. Something that will turn those pretty nylon pants into a full body torch anywhere within a couple of hundred feet of the fire front. --Ray

  2. Sorry to place this here, from The Vulgar C: bustednuckles.blogspot.com/2014/09/public-check-points-around-whitehouse.html
    "The Washington Post reported that security checkpoints could be implemented as far as a block away from the White House entrance. The paper also reported that the Secret Service is also considering keeping people off the sidewalks around the perimeter fence and creating additional barriers."
    Without question, this was a planned operation(many months after the fact) in response to the day of "barrycades."
    And within 24 hours of this incident another "Mad Hatter" tried to breach WhoreHouse security with his POV.
    Right......call me crazy, he was in DC. Why not?
    The biggest joke about this fake breech operation, what it was designed to produce in response, will not be effected in the least. Really, do you think those who barrycaded that day will, upon their next visit, come calling on the WH in a capacity that will be dissuaded by another checkpoint of rule by dictatorship?

  3. Ray, I'll try to go in order so you don't get confused. 1) Yes, nylon clothing will go up like a torch, but nyco will not, you've been misinformed. 2) Worried about snags? Me too. That's why you get it in Nyco ripstop. 3) You said "If I ever", but obviously you never have, because if you had spent dozens of cold wet nights in the woods, you'd know cotton gets wet and stays wet (cotton kills), and wears out quicker than nyco. 4) One huge aspect you're overlooking is expense. Wool is expensive, and good wool surplus is getting hard to find. My post is for those that want to buy or stock up on what works, not your theory about the Opfor Fire Brigade attacking us in the woods. Fire is always a concern in the woods, camping or other wise, but I can tell you this. While in Iraq, we were told not to use underarmor and fleece in the field, due to it's flamability, and the threat of IED's. You know what we did? We said "Roger" and wore it anyway, because it worked better than anything else (keep you dry when under exertion in cold weather), and the risk of catching on fire wasn't as great as freezing to death on a winter desert night. Frankly, I'm surprised you didn't bring up the fact that under certain sun conditions, nyco can be a little shiny, as compared to coton or wool. I've compared the attibutes (durability, efficiency at mitigating the effects of environmental and physiologically induced conditions, and cost) of different cloth types and clothing before I wrote this post (took three years). I don't randomly right crap to fill a post, I write it because I believe it's important, and needs addressing. Maybe you should write a blog post about the "The Nyco Theory and Why I Love Wool"
