Train to aim without closing the other eye. In the battle I have turned for hours to thrust a bullet for a bullet to the point where I look without putting the gun to the shoulder as a hundred this is no exception. Since the attack occurs in the direction in front of me, right and up through the floor collapsed at the same time the three sectors from one position then to close the other eye was suicide especially when dusk. But oddly enough bullets went and got there right place.

Then on the firm base I did the same and the result was positive. After another concussion began to muff a shot on one hundred meters for forty centimeters. After prolonged exercise hardly but partially returned the skill but unstable. So that to aim not closing both eyes is possible and you’ll have to do it, so try this and have meaning and necessity. All the same, only the slit and bead, second eye open and out of focus. The image on it vague but peripheral vision you still see move and flash shots.

My knife.

Deliberately do not show the stamp on the blade manufacturer this is not advertising of knives. I bring up the topic of the knives- this is my knife. All the time it is on the belt on the belt. All the time that is literally around the clock. As you stand, sit, eat, sleep, ride on the armor, climb on some ruins of debris and bushes, all without taking off clothes, with arms in hand, a knife should:
a) be securely fastened
b) does not disturb when sitting on a chair or in the car, and at the same time bent over- long knives do not allow this
c) be always at hand
d) does not hinder sleeping in clothes with a knife on the belt
e) when struck it must not break hitting a bone or the armor plate and must not injure hand (knives with metal bar protecting from slipping sometimes do this and you injure the skin of the index finger.)

In general, this knife me for half a year of its existence did not disappoint me the blade wasn’t resharpened. It replaces a spoon and fork for me. I don’t take spoons and forks since Iэму got the knife.


The philosophy of a soldier.

Do not think about what others think of you, think about how to survive and how to dispatch a mission.

First to survive and then accomplish the task, and not vice versa – a dead soldier is useless.

And remember: the headquarters think differently- if the soldiers survived, and the task was failed then they had to be lambasted. If no alive and not wounded left, then no complaints to them- they fought to the end, to the end of all their fighters.

So you have one goal – a victory, but the methods of achieving it are different.
You need your life..
The headquarters need the result.

How to carry weapons, personal experience.

The main thing is not how to carry, and how quickly to get fully operational to the firing position. The opinion of the instructor is good, but most importantly is comfortable carring.
You will have to fall down and jump out of the truck with armor on rough terrain. My preference is always to carry it in hands.

Not on the belt, but in hands. Belt the shortest possible. When moving during a fight in the dark there were very strong hooks unclear what, in one hand and a stretcher with wounded, in another RPK – strap hooked explicitly for a box with allowance of ammunition and and it drags across the land and the weight of 25 pounds in it at night. Since then, I carry the weapon on the belt as short as possible in my hands or on my chest, but the hands are always one on the fore-end second on the neck of the butt or pistol grip.

Cats and dogs in the war.

Here everything is short and simple, cats are neat and tidy , on the old terminal there were many, did not see the dead – they dodge. Dogs are of course human friends and alive genuine soul, but if you are a man, chase them from the position, unfortunately all those whom I knew were killed on our and separatists’ trip wires. Separatists’, I didn’t misspoke, guys found separatists’ trip wires in the dry grass on the hill; fresh, which enemies managed to at night we put under our nose. We are not alone capable of despair actions. Dogs are clumsy and die. So do not lure for their own good. Cats are another matter.

World weapons.

In the modern XXI century no one is surprised with the concept of “weapons.” Since its birth, the person faces this notion of death. In early childhood kids are playing original “wars” with toy guns or use for these purposes improvised subjects. Each of us remembers the water guns, crossbows, slingshots. And then insults, bruises, abrasions, fractures… Yes, let’s say there were the times. We’ve got something to remember. But as an adult, these almost harmless fun turns into a bloodbath, but with another kind of weapon – lethal action weapons. And great happiness, if the consequences of this, “fun” will be only bruises, abrasions or fractures. It happens only in the movies. Reality dictates a different outcome. People kill people.

One can safely say that the weapon appeared almost simultaneously with the emergence of consciousness in humans. Since then, it has changed a lot, having passed different stages of development: from primitive clubs and maces to ultramodern firearms and weapon of mass destruction. Modern weapon that has little in common with its predecessor. What is weapon and what is meant by this word?

Weapons are devices, objects, the means used to kill or inhibit the manpower, equipment, communications, buildings of the opposing side (the enemy). There are lots of varieties of weapons today: from cold to weapon of mass destruction. Each world country spends billions of cash equivalents for the development, manufacture or import of weapons. And not always this waste is to protect own state from the encroachments. In practice, the expansion takes place, the dictatorship of political interests and, eventually, enslavement. It brings nothing good for the ordinary citizen, and will not ever bring.

And the modern world weapon is aimed against civilians like us. But weapons don’t decide everything in the world. All the strength is in the truth, and the weapons are only the way.
