So, this blog and the forum are free resources where you get a lot of free chicken handed out. Yeah, yeah, I know, I do it so I can direct traffic towards my products , which are books and training. Web presence and all that. But it take s a lot of time to do blog posts and all that. It certainly detracts from my progress on writing the sequel to Patriot Dawn, the completion of which will actually put food in my children’s mouths.
Well anyway, Chris did a great post on gear. He took the time to lay out his gear and describe it. That’s valuable stuff. I know the silent majority appreciate the time and effort he took on that.
It’s free chicken. Here’s the post: ‘Gear: My Operational Loadout: Chris.‘
Most of you are not handout types. Some of you may actually buy one of my books or even show up for training. Many are just out there for the free chicken. For example, some of the regional Forum groups, like the NOVA one, may actually show up for training, having after all met on the MVT Forum? Maybe?
This one takes the award for free chicken ingrate, on Chris’s gear post:
I mean seriously.
And any half-serious free chicken seeker knows that you just need to search keywords on the blog and you would find plenty of articles on gear and rucks. And no, I’m not going to list what I carry in my ruck for you, asshole, go and get a clue of your own.
Not to mention I run an actual Combat Patrol class, the web page for which actually lists gear that is required, and is taught on the class. But you have to do CRCD first as a prerequisite. And that would actually involve doing some actual training, and spending money, rather than trying to suck it down off the internet for free. You may even go back to your group with some solid tactics and knowledge, and be able to teach them what you learned.
And yes, I run specific classes with prerequisites for other classes. because we in the MVT Cadre know how to train people and know what training you need even if you don’t think you do. I won’t offer BS training or progress you too fast to something more advanced. That’s why Combat Patrol comes after CRCD, and is at a higher level, and why CRU-TT will have CRCD as a prerequisite. And it won’t include FoF (force on force) training, even though you think you need it and think it will be fun. Too much scope for random.
If you don’t like it, don’t train. Oh, you do that anyway? How about going and training at another school. Oh, there aren’t any other schools out there that do this? Just the tacticool ones or ones that don’t live fire at this level and with a facility like at MVT? Sorry. I can do nothing for you.
And while you are at it, do some fucking PT and stop watching tacticool YouTube videos.
Time for a cup of tea.
