Militia Training

How in the frick would it even be possible to effectively train a militia? Even just running battle drills seems like an impossible task. The only thing that seems to be possible is just basic shooting drills and hiking.

        >no Confederates blasting the White House to smithereens with pregnant Anne Frank artillery shells and live-streaming US Army soldiers having their limbs blown off by drone (all painted bright orange with a Battle Flag like the General Lee) grenades scored to Rebel Son songs on Twitch

        What's the point even? They made a movie about WAR IN MODERN AMERICA and didn't even use a the most relevant currently ongoing one as the basis of it.

          Confederates apparently had gay homosexual sex with California or something and they're just watching D.C. burn from afar

          the point of the movie was to be a giant advertisement for itself. its the most safe war movie ever but it entices people with the concept, mostly due to how overhyped the political tension is in america.

            The movie wasn't a movie about civil war. It was a movie about war reporters' career trajectories.

        Yeah, he comes in at the end, but, he's just watching this for like 10 minutes and only decides to do his rescue after they've killed like 2 guys?

    I think the biggest problems with training a militia are the lack of dedicated infrastructure, trainers, and curriculum.

    Militaries have dedicated facilities for training recruits, they have professional trainers whose entire 9-5 job is literally just training new recruits, and they have an established curriculum which they can use to evaluate individual and group performance. Militias simply lack that because they're all volunteer and thus rely on how much said volunteers are willing to spend time and money on.

      The biggest problem is that the feds have infiltrated and control every civilian militia since the 1960s. Especially those during the rise in the 80s.

      Prior to that, we had real militias. We had real training in civilian militias. Many were former military and law enforcement. But those days are long gone. Now begins the time of the lone militia man.

      In a situation of large scale civil violence, it'd be mostly veterans training hunters and sport shooters.

      Also, in a period of extended civil violence, there arent going to be battle lines like in a conventional war. It's going to be all "pop out of dumpster and ambush someone" shit.

        A gunfight is a gunfight. Doesn't matter if it involves soldiers or insurgents. If you're working in a team, you have to know what you're doing so that you don't end up killing each other and you can be effective as a team. Even a low risk thing like a far ambush still necessitates a degree of know how.

        >then run away
        this is within the context of violent conflict in the US. jumping out from behind a dumpster isn't going to accomplish anything. lines and territory will eventually form once one side or the other is driven from one area or another.

    I feel like the location would have to be super secluded so that nobody hears gunfire. Like middle of fricking nowhere, not even near hiking trails.

      Why? One of my mates has a property just a couple of hours outta the city and there's regularly 10-20 of us firing guns off and running drills at the range he built out back.
      It's not like gunfire = evil militia.

      Point of order: his definition of 'militia' was 'a bunch of dudes that just showed up.' There was nothing wrong with the performance of the militias at Concord, because they practiced every weekend after church.

      >To place any dependance upon Militia, is, assuredly, resting upon a broken staff. Men just dragged from the tender Scenes of domestick life—unaccustomed to the din of Arms—totally unacquainted with every kind of Military skill, which being followed by a want of Confidence in themselves when opposed to Troops regularly traind—disciplined, and appointed—superior in knowledge, & superior in Arms, makes them timid, and ready to fly from their own Shadows. Besides, the sudden change in their manner of living (particularly in the lodging) brings on sickness in many; impatience in all; & such an unconquerable desire of returning to their respective homes that it not only produces shameful, & scandalous Desertions among themselves, but infuses the like spirit in others.

        Keep in mind the skill level of musket warfare was the lowest of all forms of war in human human and militias still struggled.

      Pretty funny coming from a man who had a 12 month losing streak that was only reversed when he attacked Trenton on Christmas (a plan that by his own admission was seemingly completely insane and entirely motivated by extreme desperation).

      While the minutemen's role has been greatly exaggerated, it's not like they didn't make a significant contribution to the war effort. What

      [...]

      mentioned, they were the initial fighting force whose mere existence was a deterrent, regardless of their performance. They also supplemented the main Continental Army and harassed British troops and ultimately played a role in the outcome of the American Revolution

    Reminder, any group deemed a militia, regardless how small is targeted for infiltration and destabilization by the federal government.
    The 15 man "militia" in Michigan charged with conspiracy to kidnap the governor was comprise by 7 federal agents, supposedly who pushed the plot more so than the non feds.
    Do not associate with militias, unless everyone involved is people you have known for years prior, and met in areas not involving firearms or associated things, preffereably if you knew them before they were 18, but a fed may still get in.

    Joining an open "militia" is a bad idea because if the public knows about it, the feds do to. It's better to build an actual community with your neighbors and the people you live around, fostering trust, training and reliance.

        My apologies, I didn't know you were fat. Then yes simple tasks like that would seem impossible.

        You can actually do a lot of military training on your own because a lot of military training isn't that complex. Civilians just usually lack the time, discipline, resources, and extra bodies to make it worthwhile. Battle drills aren't difficult. They're actually intended to be simple enough to enough that most can executed without too much planning and rehearsal. Battle Drills are supposed are almost a reflex for a well trained soldier.

        I haven't seen the movie in the OP, but a group of guys could definitely do some real training on their own if they were committed enough, and just like one or two were something as simple as Nasty Girl infantry for a few years.
