    Krav Maga

    I'd say just get stuck in and give it a go. If you find it helpful then use it, if you don't at least you've had a go and know what it's about. There are a few Krav associations around - IKMF being the biggest and most renound but like anything is full of political crap and false/true claims...

    US Gun laws- Will they never learn

    The simple answer to the question posted ....'Will they ever learn?'.....is quite simply no! The second amendment is ingrained into the US and it would be a pointless gesture to for the US government to try and change what is classed in the US as a freedom. I once heard this guy from the...

    beef jerky

    I came across this guy at the Aber food festival this year and was quite suprised about what they actually do - albeit an expensive taste in dried meat/fruit and other foods stuff! I found the best one was the dried goat jerky....interesting flavour with the caribiean falvours but if you like...

    Couple of questions regarding the CVIT industry

    CVIT work without a drviers licence and under 25 (insurance both for vehicles and carrying money over the pavement) is very hard indeed enven though you only need to be 18 to get the SIA lience itself. That bit makes very little sence to me. Hours within CVIT are notoriously bad with runs...

    Radio Protocol

    In my experience it isn't really what is siad over a radio net it is how it is said and the discipline around it. Trying to get a foreign national to say all sorts is hard enough - getting them to say it in a calm manner, with pauses, clearly and without anyone else tx whilst they are trying...

    Beginning Martial Arts

    Just be prepared to work hard, take a slap or two and have a few bruises to show for it - nothing lasting and you will get use to it very quickly. Don't be nervous - 2 minutes in and you'll forget where you are. Just remember that everyone in the class started at some point and will be more...

    April Jones "abduction"

    Looks like the abduction investigations has turned into a murder investigation - obviously the worst possible outcome and one that I sadly think was inevitable. They are asking for the civvy search teams to stop their activites for obvious reasons so it's just a question of time. Very sad...

    Weapon Holders in the UK?

    All, I remember reading this on the BBC website and it includes some interesting "facts" courtesy of the Home Office. BBC News - Almost 3,000 guns lost or stolen in UK, figures reveal Hope it is of some interest to the conversation. My opinion is that the security of individual...

    Dangers of insect bites

    After a lifetime of beign OK with stings and bites I have started to become more reactive to them following a bout of Cellulitis just over a year ago. A week in hospital and months worth of anti-biotics 4 times a day has left me with what I have now which is an allergic reaction to any bites...

    Anyone left the industry and still frequent the forum?

    Hi Paul, Left the security industry and went back to IT & Telecommunications - still have a look on the forum every now and again to see whats going on and to see what I'm missing! Still get the odd call for a bit of work and maintain my contacts - you never know when they might come in handy...

    BBC documentary request

    Isn't that more of a reason for a credible operator to talk to him so the Walts are outed or at least recognised!? I'm only assuming you're a credible Operator there Gorilla - I'm sure you are though! I'll be interested to see the finsihed product eitherway. Stay safe Walks

    need advice mobile phone security

    Depending on what network your mate is on just call the answer phone from the handset and there will be an option to set or change the access PIN. If you've never set-up a PIN then you can't access the voicemail from any other mobile or landline apart from the actual handset itself - UK...

    slow down intake into the industry for 6 months....

    I think this is more of an issue with churning out massive numbers of operatives with no jobs to go to and then having the cost of siad operatives been driven down by people undercutting each other to get the role and thus driving down the quality. The sad fact is that unless someone...

    slow down intake into the industry for 6 months....

    That is exactly the cause of the problem - there is nothing governing the demand over what is being produced. If this model of demand vs production was implemented in any other business sector, they would be out of Business very quickly or be viewed as having the most outragious business plan...

    slow down intake into the industry for 6 months....

    In my opinion, training providers should only be allowed to train the number of people that will fulfil their specific requirements for operational purposes - hard to govern yes....but it would stop the 'pop-up' training provider from making quick money and flooding the market. Walks

    Questions around transferring to RMP TA (116 Belle Vue) from Inf TA

    Just go and have a chat with your Troop IC and explain what you'd like to do. They will more than likley just send you off to the PASO for a chat and they can guide you from there. Any transfers at our unit went through this way as the PASO has all the contacts and can help arrange a visit to...

    New type of radio - is this a good idea?

    The tech already exists (first it was Dolphin Tetra) before it became Airwave that the emergency services use (stick it in Google and its all there!) It can be used as a point to point (one handset to another like a mobile) or it can be used as an open talk unit that is similar to PTT (push to...

    New to CVIT

    Stick to the SOP's, stick to the rules, keep your eyes open and if someone tells you otherwise, tell them where to go! Even if you constantly fail to hit your deliveries and you can back it up saying you are doing everything correct as per the rules etc...there isn't much they can do but at...

    New to CVIT

    Not just your view CVITMark it is typical of the industry and one reason why I was glad to get rid of it. Without going into details (you are probably aware of the cutting corners) it makes a dangerous job into a stupidly dangerous job if you find yourself in the situation. On top of that, if...
