How William Fairbairn Created the Modern SWAT Team in Warlord Era Shanghai

From Forgotten Weapons . . .

And a couple more videos . . .

This one is slow to start – the meat and potatoes start at about 8 minutes . . .

There are several really good books on Fairbairn and the Shanghai police years out there – the gun fighting techniques and training were quite something for the times and the 1911’s they carried? The thumb safety’s were off and pinned so they wouldn’t be accidentally engaged – try that today in the litigious world we live in . . .

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
