Re: Muzzle up ore down?

I've personally used muzzle down most of the time, but I have to admit that muzzle up is quicker if one is running short distances (think cover to cover or running into new position to engage). I understand the argument of close stacks and rifles getting caught in your gear or the gear of the guy n...

Re: The Better Way to High/Low

I don't get the purpose of two men doing high low when both are pointed in the same direction.

Re: Systematic Clearing

Short answer yes.

Whats the Mission? HR? well then you have to hit locations that can actually hold multiple hostages first and then systematically clear the rest.

Numbers is the game in a large scale hotel HR mission

Re: Unlikely and Hard to Defeat Threat Areas

Short Answer is: False Wall technique. A stint from strong wall. Another reason why opposing corners and the L is outdated.... Long answer: Continuity in training. All of your training should carry over. The environment of land warfare carries over to the house and in CQB. This is what a lot of poli...

Re: Flashbang Placement

Most units improperly utilize bangs. The bang should be put into the room and the team should chase. Not throw, boom, enter. Take a look at SAS they developed the TTPs for flash bangs, most units in the US have replaced this with waiting for the bang to go off for safety reasons. Multi bangs are sup...

Re: Muzzle up ore down?

One more thing to note in response to Howes comment about SEALs and High Ready. John Shaw is a outstanding range shooter, and yes he taught in the begging years of the SEAL Teams Shooting Tactics in the 90s. If you have ever been to MidSouth there is many plaques from ODAs, Police, Foreigners, Marin...

Re: Muzzle up ore down?

Howe, Lamb, and Vickers are dinosaurs that have failed to keep current thinking that 'the way they did it' is going to stay the top of the food chain for the rest of their life. SEALs have been doing High ready since the 90s. Finally around 2010ish SAFARTEC or however you spell it is teaching and do...

Re: Pieing the T-Intersection

Im sorry but that is terrible. The first example has the guy taking one single side practically by himself? with his back just exposed to the opposite threat? Cross Pan all day long... Even the marine corps knows that. The second example is sectoring which is more basic, but less tactical and more r...

Re: Parallel Entrance Drill

Fucking stupid... What if there is a wall/ desk/ file cabinet that changes your angle? Last I checked bullets travel through people too... Not many people standing one place and take rounds until they die... 17 rounds if I counted correctly one time. Just like when you shoot a deer and they move unt...

Re: Flashbangs in Room Entry

If used correctly just like all other assets are a force multiplier. Train as you fight. The idea is you enter on the crash with multi bangs and train that way. This way its not a distraction to you but to THEM. I don't believe in crashing a doorway before you enter. Crash deep because thats where p...

Re: Creeping Open a Door

Uncompromised, dark, no equipment. Yes you can 'creep' open a door, and then begin your pie. Why give the game away by a hard throw that bounces off the wall at 0200?

Re: Self Closing Doors

Depends on tactic being utilized

Dynamic. Dosent matter... Make entry... let it close if need be, pin it when you get a chance or dis able the self close mech.

Deliberate. Pin with foot. Rather get shot in the foot than the face... Then same as before

Re: Comment On Hallway Technique: Cloverleaf

Sorry don't agree. First airsoft breaths bad tactics. You can apply real tactics to airsoft but not the other way around. As far as touching: keep your hands and body off of me... There is no tactical advantage to being close together unless small spaces and immediate threats call for it. its 'pick ...

Re: Operating a weapon light

First. Night vision should always supersede flashlights when possible. If you are doing things the ranger way- white light clearance. A pressure switch is terrible, you will get tired of holding your thumb or finger on the button. It will slide off whe you need it etc. I also don't like the on/ off ...

Re: Safety [ON] or [OFF]

If your gun is out and you plan/ or there is a possibility of shooting you are on fire. Any other posture its on safe. Even in the chow line!!!
