Taken 3

Action flick...yes...all the elements of the previous movie was here, and then inclusion of other previous cast was given more time.

Unfortunately, the whole plot falls flat.  It smelled evening-csi-esque-studio-execs-lets-push-this-franchise out-one-more-time.


I hated the crescendo....not the finale...finale was Taken-all-the-way....the crescendo was insulting.

HIGH READY OR NOT, HERE I COME! by skdtac by contributing writer Jeff Gurwitch

Safety ;The High Ready is a good way to get someone killed

That's what I was told from by a Tactical Experto; who was eavesdropping on a conversation I was having with a fellow shooter at a gun match, telling him my preferred techniques for CQB. Here is the bottom line, with the High Ready, does chance of flagging go up? Really, no. With a correct High Ready technique the front sight, or gas block, should be sitting up at your eye level. That way, no matter what barrel length you are running you will always have the muzzle of the rifle up in your line of sight. This allows you to control the angle the rifle rests at. To avoid flagging when your buddies are around you, simply raise the muzzle up.

Now does the chance of catastrophic injury increase by running the High Ready? Of course. If there is an accidental discharge and it does hit someone, chances are it will be the head area and not in the legs, like with the Low Ready. But you have to keep in mind that the High Ready was adopted primarily by Special Operations military personnel members who were facing armed enemy combatants. This is an important factor due to the higher than average level of CQB training these soldiers go through, and the danger their armed adversaries pose. The biggest risk in CQB is not being shot by your buddies, but by the enemy you are going against. So therefore, why not use techniques that give you the best chance of dealing with those threats?
