Chinese Swat Team Final Exam


One of many required tests you need to be able to complete to graduate to the Chinese Shanghai SWAT team. Students need to hit 10 targets with 100% accuracy within 2 mins, while using all the required shooting positions. Note that this student also has an injured ankle.

What Caused This Oddly Shaped Wound? Bullet or Shrapnel?

, , ,

This photo has been floating around the internet for the past year, without any real back story of what actually happened. Funker Tactical has recently come across some new information that sheds some light on what may have caused this oddly shaped wound.

Soldier wounded by bullet in chest during Georgian war

This injury was sustained in 2008 during the Russia – Georgia War in Ossetia. This soldier was part of the МИРОТВОРЧЕСКИЕ СИЛЫ (Peacekeepers unit). Their outpost was attacked by Georgians with heavy artillery fire and tanks.

The reason that this photo has become so popular is the pattern of the wound. We have found 2 conflicting sources, with one saying it was from an AK74 type rifle firing a 5.54 round which (1) Entered the throat and (2) Exited the throat.  After exiting the throat the projectile was travelling downward diagonally left to right, making 3 centimeters of penetration which was enough to cause a tumble of this 5.45 projectile. (3) This is what caused the impressive “glaze” at re-entry. Another source is stating that this wound was caused by artillery shrapnel during the shelling of their base.

Do you guys think this was all caused by a single 5.45 bullet, shrapnel, or something else? Discuss below.

What The Mainstream Media Didn’t Tell You About The Maryland Shooting

AP_maryland_mall_shooting_5_jt_140125_16x9_992This past week a mentally unstable teenager committed a murder-suicide at a mall in in Maryland.

Every time a shooting like this happens we are left with more questions than answers. There is no truth to be said here other than mental illness and the ability to create violence can lead to severe consequences. While the media will always try to make sense of the senseless, we must take a look at the facts surrounding crime and violence in the state of Maryland.

In this chart presented, we have a look at total crime rates in Maryland over a 34 year period, which was pulled directly from the state website. The trend is that if you are a resident of Maryland, you are as safer than ever before. It is easy to highlight the most shocking crimes committed, and extrapolate them to a national audience via 24/7 news networks. This causes people to act out of fear and relinquish their responsibilities as citizens to authorities in the name of security. It’s not that people are “sheep” in a derogatory manner; it’s that they are bombarded daily by a media that sells fear. This fearmongering is a danger to all those who value their liberty and are able to see the larger picture.


Rather than focus on the real issue at hand and possible solutions to this mental health crisis, the mainstream media would rather focus on how scary the gun looked, how easy it was to buy the gun, and how many pellets were inside of each shotgun shell. In the most recent article by CNN, they also thought it was necessary to end the article with a list of every recent shooting across America that would incite fear into readers. A simple Google search of “Shooting in Chicago” shows pages upon pages of recent shootings that are swept under the rug, because they don’t fall in line with the mainstream media’s political fearmongering agenda.

The real issue at hand for this particular scenario is that a 19 year old decided to murder two people without any clear motive. This kind of irrational behaviour is a mixture between immaturity and other psychological factors. While, I can’t say I’ve never been angry with someone before, I can say I was always able to figure out a way to solve my problems without murder and suicide. The people who commit these kinds of acts are not normal, they are abnormal. We must treat them as the isolated incidents they are, and not blame the murder weapon but the murderer himself. That is the only way there will be accountability for one’s own actions.

Until then, remember that getting someone psychological help is nothing to be ashamed of, it could be a matter of life or death. Don’t be the person on the news claiming you never saw anything odd about a person’s behaviour. The responsibility is ours until the government takes it away. Take pride in that.

This New Ammo Will Make Any Gun Owner Drool

New ammo design gives 9mm a new punch


The invention of the G2R’s projectile R.I.P. is related to the ability to control the way the projectile reacts as it passes through different mediums by control of the mfg process, geometry and the rate of failure at different zones along its axial length. More particularly but not limited to the ability to take the projectile and predictably have it stay solid in one medium but yet have the exact same projectile predictably react as a fragmenting bullet through a different medium without alteration of the projectile. The geometry at the tip of the projectile has much to do with the way the projectile travels through tissue. It has been long known in the medical industry that a trocar point penetrates the dermis layer more efficiently. Patents for trocars appeared early in the 19th century, although their use dated back possibly thousands of years. It is the use of this geometry at the front end of the projectile that does specific work at the point of entry from one system to the next. Dependent on the medium the projectiles geometry is designed to react differently.

Imagine a Hole saw. The hole saw action that occurs at points of entry into different mediums reduce initial drag which allow the hollow cavity in the center of the projectile to rapidly pack. In the case of plywood the hole saw action cleanly cuts and packs the projectile with a slug that makes it solid thus allowing it to conserve more of its energy. This performance could prove to be very effective for law enforcement that may be in a situation where the target is behind such an obstacle whereas more energy will be carried into the intended target and not lost in the obstacle.

In a fluid the projectile fragments. Due to the trocar geometry of each petal the resulting diameter of the fragmentation pattern is maximized. The trocar tips allow the fragments to swim through tissue / gel with less resistance thus conserving energy. The cross sectional thicknesses and geometries also create a full 180 degree flip halfway along each of the 8 petals path. The resulting shock wave and wound path is maximized. The result is devastating.
