Re: Individual skills articles

I have searched hard on how to improve my shooting. I'm not a bad shot at all with a pistol, it is just that occasional flyer that really bugs me. Now I focus on the space between the left side of the front sight and the left side of the rear sight. They say to make sure there is equal space on each...

Re: Basic Firearms Safety

I don't see any reason for the finger to be on the trigger. As far as the safety goes, it depends. Consider the following: 1. Skill level of the least tactical member of the team 2. Indoor or outdoor operation 3. how easy is it to operate the safety on your weapon (AK47's and MP5's are very difficul...

Re: Why roll?!

The real purpose of breakfalls is for when you get thrown on the ground by an opponent. It allows you to land with minimal damage. If you take a grappling class like judo, you have to be able to do breakfalls from day one, just to make it through the class without getting hurt. Doing breakfalls for ...

Re: Iraqi Reload With AK-47

I consider this magazine change way to fancy and complicated. For me it takes fine motor skills to pull this off. I don't like it at all. I like simple gross motor movements. I prefer these methods. a. transition to my handgun and get to cover b. magazine change with retention(don't let the gun run ...

Re: Why roll?!

There is no good reason to roll. However breakfalls could be very useful. You may want to get flat very quickly. Knowing how to do martial arts front falls, backfalls, and side falls are great. You may need to get small behind a vehicle very quickly. Mag pull practices this stuff a lot from what I c...

Re: Comment on Entry technique: ISRAELI LIMITET

I ALMOST really like the limited pin. I don't like the idea of running into gun fire, but at least if I get in the room I can see him and engage him. If he is facing me and looking down the barrel of my gun he is more likely to surrender. If he has a shot at me while I'm not even looking his way, he...

Re: Comment on Entry technique: ISRAELI LIMITET

The obvious problems with this are that you are flagging your position with the muzzle of your weapon. If I'm in a hard corner and I see your muzzle shove into the room, you can not yet see me but I can see exactly where you are. I could shoot through the wall and you would never have a shot at me. ...

Re: The Five Count Pistol Draw VS The Israeli/Mossad Pistol

Five count pistol draw. It is a handgun not a handsgun. I want to be able to deploy the gun instantly with one hand if necessary. Plus if I have to draw it when stealth is a concern, I don't want to have to cycle a round giving away my position.

Re: Get Control of Your Andrenaline Rush

Although the article is not new information. It is presented well and should be read and studied by anyone who is interested in controlling stress in high risk situations. I thought it funny that the author relates a story about being pulled over and having a major adrenaline rush. Shows me how far ...

Re: Light Infantry Tactics For Small Teams - Opinions?

I liked the book and learned form it. Don't worry about something being "outdated." There really is not such thing when you are developing your own tactics. Just read as much as you can. Eventually(I suspect you have it already) you develop a BS detector. If something is to complicated or impractica...

Re: Door Ambush

This is a good topic. I have been teaching weapons takeaways for a long time. I have never thought to train it in a door ambush scenario. However this makes perfect sense. I think I will work this into my training. As far as defense goes, I always go to an underarm assault position when going throug...

Re: Quick Question Regarding The Stack Up

I worked the number two position on snake entries for a long time. The reason given for not putting me on point was that I was so tall. I could reach right over the point man and engage targets as if I was working point. If skill levels are equal, sure put the short guy up front. But also it pays to...

I don't totally agree with how they do everything in this video, but overall it is pretty good and close to how I would do an entry. I like spitting during the initial entry. Although the third guy didn't really get out of the fatal funnel. Not bad though. I love stacking back up and moving in a sna...

Re: Combat Knives

As I said, keep cutting and stabbing until there is no more threat.

The bigger the knife the less judo, wrestling and strength you need.

The smaller the knife the more judo, wrestling and strength you might need to be effective.

I don't know of a police officer that dose not carry at least one knife. There is just something so reliable about them that you are a wise to have one on you all the time.

Re: furniture and other obsticals

If you fall over an obstacle, quickly scan to make sure none of your team members noticed. If they didn't notice, get back up. If they noticed then just stay prone and order everyone else to get down. Lead form the front. :mrgreen:

Re: Comment on Entry technique: QUICK-PEEK

A couple things to remember when quick peeking. 1. Just pop in for a second and take a mental picture of what you see. Then back way away, so if they fire through the wall you are not right beside the doorway. At which time think about the mental picture you took and analyze it. 2. If you are going ...
