Discussion On Wild Bunch Dispatch Issue #63 Starts HERE At 6:00pm Mountain Time!

September 17, 2021

The Q&A portion of the Wild Bunch Dispatch will be held on this page from 6:00pm to 7:30pm (Mountain Time) today.  Any questions you might have on the 63rd issue please post here and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.  Some ground rules:

1)  Please stick to the subject matter of the newsletter.

2)  This is not a debate forum.  If you have some concerns I’m happy to address them, but I can’t get into a long circular debate while other people have questions.

3)  If I do not respond to your question immediately, don’t freak out.  I’ll get to it, don’t worry.

4)  Try to keep to one or two questions each time you write a post.  Please refrain from essay-long multi-question posts.  It is much appreciated. 

I will begin discussion at exactly 6:00pm Mountain time.  Looking forward to your questions and thoughts on the Wild Bunch Issue #63.  The next issue of the newsletter will be released on September 26th.  If you missed out on this discussion you can still subscribe for the next issue and participate.  For more information on how to subscribe, visit the link HERE.

    Discussion on Issue #63 is now open.

    Aiming for the spots on an enemy the armor doesn’t cover allows you to collect it intact later after he’s dead or captured. It’s easier to repair a bullet hole in a pair of fatigues than in a rifle plate.

      Yes. I have also seen tests with 308 and 300 win mag loaded with old black tip AP bullets and they pass right through most armor, if you have no other shot. The real gear a rebellion would be looking for in a battlefield pick-up would be man portable anti-tank and anti-air. Watch out for potential GPS tracking on such gear, though.

    Also avoid flash hiders or muzzle breaks unless one is absolutely needed. Flames from the barrel will give away your position.

    I suppose I never compared the difference in a low light setting, would you be referring to running a straight barrel with no muzzle device?

      That is generally what military snipers do, unless they have a big caliber like 300 win or 7mm, then you basically need a muzzle brake just to avoid destroying your shoulder. Another thing I have noticed is that suppressors REALLY cut down on muzzle flash as well as heat signature in thermal vision.

      • Black Cat September 17, 2021 at 6:36 pm

        That was my other question, suppression.

        Thoughts on going the legal route, paying the fees, signing the forms, etc? I have no criminal record but hesitant to take the plunge. Realistically my only way to procure one at this point.

          Well, hypothetically, one could look into alternative options as they are very easy to come by given some basic knowledge, and much cheaper than the over the counter devices. Some of these options remain perfectly legal as long as you never actually USE them for suppression, at least not while the system is still functioning. Something I would point out though, is that some red states have laws on the books for suppressors built in-state not being subject to ATF rules. Most people don’t do it because the ATF often ignores state rules. But, I would not be surprised if in the near future red states completely reject federal gun rules and kick out the ATF and then EVERYTHING becomes legal at that stage. Don’t take any unnecessary risks, but know that there are ways around such restrictions or there will be in the near future. Also, a side note – Suppressors do not make a rifle quiet unless you are shooting subsonic ammo, and the effective range on subsonic ammo is going to be around 100 yards max in most cases.

            Copy that, thanks

    What brands of high frequency radios do you recommend?

      It depends on how much cash you are willing to spend and what you plan to use it for. For base station models there are tons of good options. For portable HF I would look into Yaesu 818ND, which is more expensive, or the Xeigu G90 for less expensive but comparable. Anything that can run on low wattage with a small battery pack. You would also need a modem for packet transmission as well as a portable antenna, which is almost as expensive as the radio in a lot of cases. Expect to spend at least $1000 to get started.

    On the muzzle brake thing if you have one on your rifle will using a ballistic loophole help with hiding the muzzle flash and heat signature?

      Brandon Smith September 17, 2021 at 7:05 pm

      Yes, an indoor environment or pre-built “sniper hide” with a loophole is the best way to remain invisible. Be sure to check out my video on Ballistic Loophole shooting and how to reduce your loophole down to a couple of inches wide and still avoid hitting the sides with your bullet:

      Also, keep in mind that if you are facing an advanced opponent and are in a rural environment, you DO NOT want to shoot from an isolated house or building. That is the first place they would drop ordnance on. Always set up in concealment or cover in-depth and well away from terrain features that stand out to the naked eye. Never the highest place or the closest place; always somewhere in the large middle ground.

    If possible, could you reference any of your previous articles/wild bunch issues that speak on communications. I have read the wild bunch intro and that was super helpful. I know communications is the ultimate force multiplier, and over the winter (slow time) I am hoping/planning on doubling my efforts in that regard.
    Thanks again Brandon, the rock star of the rebellion!

      I actually can’t remember off the top of my head which issues cover comms. But, I could probably write another one that completely focuses on that subject. Maybe the next issue. Thanks for the kind words.

  • Joe September 17, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Would you consider writing about tunnels/hardened positions? More specifically, how to make a tunnel that won’t collapse. I think people underestimate this combo when it comes to staying in the fight.

      Possibly. I have a lot of construction experience but tunnel building is not so easy out here in my neck of the woods. The soil is pure clay and it’s loaded with boulders. Depending on your soil you may have to do everything with a backhoe. If things get bad them underground facilities would be one of the better options for safety.

    Check this one out, when they come, stomp them out immediately!

    Discussion is now closed on Issue #63. Thanks to all those subscribers who participated. If you missed out on this issue or would like to subscribe to The Wild Bunch Dispatch to receive future issues, visit the subscription page HERE.

    Issue #64 will be released on September 26th.

    This might upset some animal lovers but if the enemy is using dogs to sniff out enemies and booby trap, then take the dogs and maybe their handlers out.

      I believe the standard operating procedure is to not worry about the dogs and to get rid of the tracker or “dog handler” instead. Without the handler the dogs will stop looking for you. I could be mistaken but I think this is the recommended solution in the Army sniper field manual.
