Re: PT for Close Combat

Another site worth checking out is SOFLETE on Facebook. They have a bit of a strength bias, but there's a fair bit of endurance/stamina mixed in as well. They put out daily sessions for free on Facebook, some of which have completely smoked me. There's a bit of swimming and shooting, too. I intend t...

Kyle Defoor on mindset

Re: Comment on Entry technique: ISRAELI LIMITET

Clear - You said exactly what Jack said but both points are so moot I'm sorry. If you stacked to buttonhook, straight, wallflood, insert entry. YOU WOULD BE AT RISK OF BEING SHOT THROUGH THE WALL. If you're saying you're at more risk being in a static position this is true, but you're at more risk ...

Re: PT for Close Combat

You may be interested in downloading and reading the Combat Strength Training e-book by Pat McNamara. He's a legit operator, the book is easy to read and contains some good info. I particularily like his approach to mixing power and max-strength sessions with endurance-based sessions - as opposed to...

Re: Combat Shooting Positions: Standing unsupported

Interesting concept. At what point do you find yourself transitioning to your sights? How does this work with red dot sights vs iron sights, seeing as red dots are easier to use?

Re: "Shooter's Wrist"

Never seen it explained quite like that. Ron Avery knows his business. Wrist tension is extremely important when shooting handguns. I know of one shooter who experienced "brass to face" with all their issued Glocks. Turned out, they just needed to tilt their weak hand forward slightly and lock out t...

It's like the muzzle up vs muzzle down discussion all over again! :lol: Shall we agree that it's all good so long as you can do it in the kit you wear for work, it's based on sound principles and you're willing to try new things to improve? I know I've spent a few years trying and failing to get to ...

Re: Combat Shooting Positions: Standing unsupported

I was referring specifically to that last link of yours. That dude has no depth, only bending. He's also god his head down, not forward, meaning he's looking through the top of his eye sockets - straining and means you'll be looking through the top edge of your eye pro (where the lenses are more cur...

Re: POLR for Point Man - Cross or Buttonhook for Open Doorwa

From what I understand, it's better to hook, why? Most of the opposite side is already scanned from outside, I'd rather go to where I don't see than re learning what I already saw. Also, as the point man, I'd like to engage the first threat I see, and in order to do that, I'd be happy to have to op...

Re: Combat Shooting Positions: Standing unsupported

I disagree strongly with the whole leaning forward at the waist thing - ref that last link. You'll tweak your back wearing body armour, and it won't really work when wearing a pack. The same thing can be accomplished by stepping more forward with your forward foot and leaning into the weapon rather ...

Re: IFWA - Mainly a gear issue?

Unless your gear setup is shit, it's mostly a training issue IMO. Know how to access your weapons and other kit efficiently and safely, and not least when it should be accessed.

Re: "Closing Down" A Threat

Depends on the operator's ability to switch his/hers agression on when needed, and "shoot his way to his corner", so to speak. Seen a fair few guys during exercises getting "target lock" and just move towards the target. Same as during fighting, people tend to get in clinches.

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 d...

Re: Clinch Fighting

Definitely useful. Moving in close quarters, if someone gets past your firearms (or doesn't need to be shot) and LTL options (including a good muzzle thump from a handgun or rifle), they tend to get past punching distance as well. Might as well train for clinches and grappling/ground fights. If they...

ONEjqf9wlYU There are a few things in this video I do not like.

Re: Find Your Optimum Shooting Stance

You should check out his other videos as well. He puts out some good info and little tips and tricks. He's also former US SF as well a an accomplished competition shooter, so he can really analyze problems from both perspectives. I've picked up a couple of things myself.
