Isn’t this the guy from “Doomsday Preppers” season 1? The guy who developed a pretty cool edged e-tool, but then managed to shoot himself in his own hand while fiddling with a 10/22 while in the desert with his kids? I think the show’s medical team had to rescus him as he was passing out from shock. No reflection on this product, but just an interesting connection.
Wait a minute, a guy who is like a 'prepper' gets shot in the hand w/a .22 and starts passing-out? OMG I think I would find a new instructor. lol. I can hear it now "OK folks if you are out surviving w/your family and anyone happens to get hit just PASS-OUT! LOL ! ! !
Oh my... I KNEW he looked familiar. I think you might be right. I know the prepper guy that shot off his finger was from Arizona also. I'll see if I can find the prepper video and confirm this.
You are absolutely correct:
If the link gets deleted by TheBlaze... just google "Doomsday preppers guy shoots his finger off" and the youtube video pops up as the #1 choice.
It IS him!!
Yup...looks like it healed up fine, if you look close, his left thumb is now a compact model...he he. I really think he should be wearing a helmet while he's shooting, I wouldn't want him to pass out again and hit his head. Ok, enough chop busting, he's got some good ideas, but I'm afraid the guys that can afford this set of barrels are smart enough to have a 12 ga. , a .22 semi rifle and a long gun for reaching out. I'll pass on this, but I do like the guys tenacity. He'll sell all he can make to the same people that bought radiation detectors and iodine pills the day after Fukushima...
Yes it is CONSULO, same guy.
Yes. He is the poor soul that committed an ultra firearms no no. He put something in the line of fire that he did not want to destroy. Hence his short thumb. Good guy, but a hard way to learn a lesson.
He is an inventive fella, but I think his crovel was something in the $125 and while it reduces the number of tools you have to carry, $40 for a shovel and a 3' crowbar will eliminate the necessity of buying one.

You are misquoting the Wall Street Journal article. The quote you attribute to Bordin came from a general officer. Regardless, if this handbook will help reduce friction between forces and contributes to fewer green-on-blue attacks, then so what if it provides some “taboo” discussion areas. I mean, we were all taught when we were young that religion and politics are not pleasant dinner topics, because it gets people riled up. Soldiers are there to do a mission–and it’s not to change the Afghans’ minds about social issues like women’s rights and how to handle their cousin who is in the Taliban. They just need to prepare and train the Afghan police and army, so we can get out of there ASAP. Now if you want to debate whether or not we should still be in Afghanistan at all–that’s a discussion worth having. This is a non-issue.
I notice that you didn't touch the third rail of "pedophilia" in your comment. Should we avoid this "problem area" as well? I read an article once that described the Afghan army's practice of a once-weekly tradition of man / boy encounters. Have you heard anything about those "special" days? The eight year old boy who was photographed for the story had been made-up with heavy mascara, eyeliner and fake lashes. It made me puke.
Nothing in your personal life that you'd like to take the opportunity to get off your chest, eh laddie?
You can't really be this moronic can you? So it is our fault and if we are nicer to them and bow down to them they won't shoot at us? Really that is your solution
We have been in the ME since 1991 and haven't managed to teach them how to march in a straight line. They appear to be missing the two genes that seperate humans from homo-erectus.
