At least 12 people were killed late Wednesday night when a gunman opened fire at a nightclub in Thousand Oaks, Calif., police said.
Hundreds of people were inside the Borderline Bar & Grill for "college country night." Shots rang out at around 11:20 p.m., Ventura County police said. Witnesses inside said patrons used chairs to break windows in an attempt to escape the gunfire.
Police told the Los Angeles Times that at least 30 shots were fired and the gunman used smoke bombs. It was unclear what type of weapon the shooter used.
Police said the shooter was dead inside the bar. It was unclear how he died.

  SEPA #20 After Action report
Posted by: Bob - 11-05-2018, 03:50 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

So, out there by myself, I had a chance to do quite a few things...

#1 Had MRE's for the first time: Got them from MRE Star
- Gumbo & Chicken.  Pretty tasty.  I used the heater pack as instructed.  Worked great.,  Also a power bar with that that was fairly tasty.
- Barbecue Chicken & Beans for breakfast.  Ate it cold.  It was ok.  Too much sauce.  Had Sugar cookies that were great.
- Both had crackers, and drink mix, and coffee.
- Had some of the coffee with breakfast.  It sucked.

All in all, I see the value of MRE's and repackaging them.  So far, I'll give mountain house the edge on a camp-for-fun excursion.  Lighter, tastier over-all.

#2 I didn't really pack other than throwing food in.  Thought I'd see how things went.  Learned some interesting things.

a) My headlamp needs new batteries!  No big deal - had Sipik w/ fresh batteries, Surefirew G2 w/ fresh batteries, My InnovaI5 with fresh batteries, and a Walmart cheapie $1 light.  Plus spare CR123's.
b) The first can I hooked to Jetboil was empty.  No problem - I had two more.
c) I was out of Dave's fire chips in my Brew kit.  No problem as I had 3 large and about 7 small fuel tabs for Esbit stove (Which I used to make evening tea).  Bonus - I found some in my main bag! So I wasn't really out.
d) My phone got low and my small Brunton was about out of Power!  No problem - I had another fully charged brick.
e) My spork broke.  No problem - Coleman Swiss Army Utensils in my main pack (plus spoons w/ MRE)
f) Could not find my main Gerber armor folder!  No problem, Glock field plus two Swiss army knives.
g) My Machete can indeed chop fire wood - Publix was out!

The bottom line was that even when half @$$ing it - I had at least a spare of everything I could have wanted!  It was also usually on an additional pack.  What would have happened if none of you were there?!?!? Oh wait....

So...One is none, two is one...and you know the rest!  Now I have an inventory of things to do this week in my gear.

Slept in the bed net this time - Super cozy in low 60's!

  USCCA Offers Free Training To Protect Houses Of Worship
Posted by: bmyers - 11-03-2018, 02:33 PM - Forum: Defense - No Replies

In the wake of Sutherland Springs just under a year ago, many churches started looking to have their own security. Many states made moves to make it easier for them to do so, as well. The understanding was that had the gunman met armed resistance earlier maybe he wouldn’t have massacred so many people.
I don’t believe that thinking is wrong in any way.
With the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh a week ago, it’s clear that not every house of worship has gotten the memo. To that end, the folks at the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) have a proposal. They’re offering free training to protect our houses of worship.
The United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) announced on Thursday its latest online training event would focus on protecting houses of worship.
The group, which sells firearms training and concealed carry insurance, said the recent anti-Semitic attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead and 5 wounded is the kind of attack the training series is designed to defend against.
“On behalf of the more than 250,000 members of the USCCA we mourn for the victims, their families and the City of Pittsburgh,” Tim Schmidt, president of the USCCA, said. “They are all in our prayers. Sadly, this latest shooting is a reminder that too many lives have been lost because murderous maniacs know that our places of worship are soft targets where those inside often don’t have the ability to protect themselves.”
The series will debut on the company’s website on Monday at 7 p.m. CST. It will feature trainers from USCCA leading students through scenarios with specialized equipment like “stress vests” and simulated UTM ammunition. The company said the training sessions will cover “what to do when there is an active shooter in your church, what you can do to prepare, where your security team members should sit, tips on deadly force decision making, and the proper size of a house of worship security team.”
The video series will be followed by a live training event on Nov. 12 that will be broadcast across the company’s YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. Schmidt said the series will be available free of charge and is intended to educate the public and encourage more people to carry a firearm for self-defense.
“In countless situations across this country, concealed-carry permit holders have been the front lines of defense against evildoers because they have the necessary knowledge, training and experience to protect those around them,” Schmidt said. “As a society, we should be having an important conversation about whether we are truly doing everything possible to protect ourselves and those around us. This new training offered by the USCCA will hopefully provide life-saving advice for anyone who has to confront an active shooter situation.”
The Pittsburgh attack reignited the debate over how to respond to mass shootings and other violent attacks at vulnerable places like houses of worship or schools. In the aftermath of the attack, President Trump said “results could have been much better” if somebody at the synagogue had been armed. Schmidt said he agreed with the president’s sentiment. Gun-control activists took the opposite approach, saying Americans shouldn’t feel the need to be armed when they go to worship and warning that armed civilians could cause more harm than good.
Of course, gun control advocates always take the opposite approach. They can’t comprehend that the gun can’t act on its own and thus can’t be responsible for what some jackwagon does with it.
The only reasonable response is for armed individuals inside our houses of worship to be there to meet the threat.
It may not stop mass shootings entirely, but maniacs will be more likely to look at other targets than churches to unleash their evil upon. I don’t care how you cut it, that’s still a win.

Well I've lived through my third tornado this afternoon.  Wife and I were just pulling into Walmart and the phone and radio started going off with the alert tone.  Tornado was coming right through our area.  I dropped her off at the door and parked and as I headed inside I could see the wall of dark coming just off the corner of the store.  I couldn't see the funnel but you could feel it and then a wall of sideways rain hit just as I was stepping in the front doors.  People running in from outside, power went out, alarms going off, tree limbs flying sideways.  Luckily we still had cell service and were able to call close by family and verify their safety.  

It went through and then we headed home.  Just after turning into our sub-division a huge branch was down in the outgoing lane.  Three of us stopped and were able to drag it off to the side.  Made it home soaked and had my two large planters in front of the house blown down. But fortunately the Lord kept us all safe and sound.  

We are still in a Tornado warning for another 20 minutes.  Areas of circulation to the north and south of us as a wave of thunderstorms from the panhandle to the keys is coming through.

There is no need to tailgate me in the slow lane when I'm already doing 35 over the speed limit.

Plus, those flashing lights on top of your car look ridiculous.
