Video: Dealing with jammed weapons.
« on: July 03, 2017, 09:45:42 PM »
As before, there's a simple video link that discusses pistol and rifle problems when the weapon jams.


I'm not nearly as good with firearms as I am with lifesaving techniques, but I noticed that Lifelines didn't have a vid for this.  You'll note I didn't really know much about the rifle, as I didn't get to hold it for obvious reasons. For you more well-trained types, maybe you could go over proper cleaning techniques and those heavier caliber weapons I see on the raiders?

If you think that's a good idea, that is.

There's an archive, still up on Ubiq, you best download and spend your weekends reading. Especially if you want to self-teach handling a MG. Like, I was an gun nut pre-Crash, and I ain't as full up on this topic as I like.

As for the vid. Seems okay enough, it is a classroom video though. Unless you practice until muscle memory, it giving you individual exercises might be too advanced. Like, the exercise it gives for misfeeds and double feeds generalize well enough to other problems. And if there is a stuck cartridge case in the chamber, you are better off just drawing a sidearm...or running.

When dealing with a gun that’s been jammed
—because sometimes things don’t go as planned—
     you should take a deep breath,
     then tap, rack, and assess;
And hope by your misstep, you’re not damned.

well I figure that if you're watching the vid, you've already run, right?

Good point there. Good point.  :P

As for that archive. Here's a link.

It's a IRL archive, it goes under a few names and you should be able to torrent it easily. It includes US military manuals from the 20th century and various materials about waging insurgency.

Good shit. Reading is no substitute for practice, though. Like Passerby said earlier, you gotta get that muscle memory down. Practice at home, a lot. Everybody understands the importance of target practice, but too many never appreciate the value of jam clearing or field stripping practice. The good news is, you can run a lot of the drills with empty cartridges so you're not wasting live ammo or risking accidental discharges.

Hey Passerby, PM me if you wanna shoot the shit about shooting shit.  ;)

Sure, why not?

Was that an actual invitation to PM?

If you want, sure. But I know way less about guns than Freebird does, so I wouldn't be able to hold up my end of that conversation.  :)
