The '45-90-180' Limited Entry Technique for Pair Room Entry

Here is an excerpt from the "MANUAL DE COMBATE URBANO CONVENCIONAL PARA UNIDADES DE INFANTERÍA DE MARINA", the Urban Combat Manual for the Mexican Marines, which I was made aware of thanks to Ryan. Obviously it is in Spanish but I may upload a translation later with the help of google. It shows what...

Re: El Chapo Capture

Great find Rye. I've also managed to track down this field manual. It also shows the depiction of what i've been calling the '45-90-180' limited entry method for room entry in pairs, which is what I was shown by UKSF and also is the same as the method Max Velocity had developed (independently) and p...

Re: Maple Leaf (Shoshana) Technique

I'm guessing the example seen here after 0:30 is the technique Aaron Cohen was talking about.

Re: The Better Way to High/Low

Oh, i think I got confused, I assumed you were gonna show me a pic of front man High and rear man Low. How is the Israeli way different from the american way? I was always taught High-Low in the 'American' way with the 'American' designation (front man = Low, rear man = High). I assumed the israeli'...

Re: The Better Way to High/Low

The specific method of High-Low are one area where I don't have a strong opinion or preference. However, from what I understand, it is more optimal for the low man to look straight along wall, and the high man to look at a diagonal angle at the opposing corner at the end of the corridor. Also Ryan, ...

Re: Cornering with Pistols - Switching the grip hand

When holding the pistol in a modern grip hold, using an isoceles firing stance/position, I personally wouldn't waste my time switching hands as it takes me out of the fight, even for a short time. I think off-setting the pistol to align it to the right or left shoulder depending on the upcoming corn...

Cornering with Pistols - Switching the grip hand

In the video below (watch from 1:10 onward) the instructor explains that when approaching a corner, one needs to hold the pistol in the hand opposite to the corner. If you are right handed and approaching a right corner, this means switching the pistol from right to left hand, and vice versa. This i...

Re: Teaching Limited Entries to Immediate Entry Enthusiasts

In this sense you could say that one was to meet resistance and take casualties but be able to sustain itself but the other was to meet resistance and prevent casualties. Very well put. If you think about the period during which the Immediate Entry method was adopted by the US and NATO militaries, ...

Re: Transition from right to left hand, right to left should

I'll quote my answer to DareTactical to this thread. Well, the simplest answer is no, none of the IDF units use shoulder transitions. The idea behind it is that it would take too much time and ammo to train someone to do shoulder transitions and to shoot effectively. Also, there is much emphasize o...

Re: Self Closing Doors

M-UPC94HG7U 2:34. Awful video but an example of a SCD and LE. Self closing doors that swing outwards, away from the room, are not much of a problem. It's the self closing doors which swing inwards, into the room, that are. (also off-topic, but relating to another recent topic; notice the Israeli st...

Re: Transition from right to left hand, right to left should

Great! Very interested to hear what he has to say and what his preferences are.

As for your designation for "Retained" and "Unretained" transitions, how is this different from the comparison between keeping primary fire control hand vs switching to weak hand?

Re: Transition from right to left hand, right to left should

What source was that? I'm unsure if they do. They might be stuck with the dogma that you can't with bullpups (which is bollocks). Actually Ryan, I believe it was you who pointed this out a while ago in one of the youtube videos which brought it to my attention. I can't find the specific one but her...

Re: Transition from right to left hand, right to left should

I've heard (and seen in videos) that Israelis generally do not use side transitions. Not even shoulder transitions when using the Tavor TAR-21. Anyone got any info on the reasoning behind this? I'm just surprised seeing as the Israelis have been pioneers in the field of Urban warfare and CQB, and I ...

Re: Teaching Limited Entries to Immediate Entry Enthusiasts

I think one of the ways the techniques differ is the way they are scalable to different team sizes. It feels like Limited Entries / Limited Penetration Entries (LPE?) were based on 1 man tactics that were scaled up, so that it could accommodate 1-4 man elements. In the end, LPEs are essentially a 's...

The talk of a tactical con artist... but really... just the talk of someone trying to teach what civilians would see as amazing.
