Cooking a grenade seems dumb. As long as the grenade is in my control in want the handle with it. When the primer goes off there's no way back, you have to use or dispose off the device.

Re: Thumb Safety Engagement in CQB Context

And to further Eiffel's questions, can you clarify the different zones? Well, these days, I tend to think in LE terms when it comes to CQB engagements, mostly. Green zone is your outer perimeter where EMS, reporters and support staff are safe. Yellow zone is inside the LE perimeter set up to catch ...

Quite possibly but I cannot find any more information to confirm.

Re: Kicks

If you don't have a doorknocker you should be prepared to kick as a pair, like the blacksmiths do, you don't want to step in out of breath, and depending on the hardware and door/frame material it can take some good blows. Another good tip is to pry to find out where the locks and other obstacles a...

Re: Overpenetration?

Over-pen. You open yourself up to "opening" or "exposing" angles in the room. Imagine you are 1m into the room. The guy in the cupboard has the angle on the far left wall only. You're safe. Now you push up 3m. He can see you pushing up the wall. Boom. If you charge a room, especially one full of fur...

This is good. It keeps a ricochet lane off the wall. It can allow the outside foot to doorjamb takeoff if needed.

Use of Force and Legality

"In short, the use of force in self defence, or in defence of a third party, must be 'reasonable' in the circumstances. The question of what amounts to a reasonable use of force often turns on whether the amount of force used is proportionate to the perceived threat. Basically, unless you genuinely ...

Worst Place for a Limited?

JTKTfUHfeKM 0:35. I've said this before but I will say it again. This kind of structure is bad for a limited. You have one connecting doorway where any angle on that doorway is dominating you. If you are at the end of the hallway, it is truly a huge funnel. Putting yourself in the middle of this fu...

Police Brutality

Just wanted to ask this... what do you guys think about police brutality or the type of training we advocate and police brutality? We push a lot of limited entries, to see the room from the door, to engage from the door, to save Officers lives. This is made for a threat. Your average cop may see it ...

Then it's your basic movement techniques. Whether you bound, leapfrog, etc. You're trying to get out of this open space. Open space with no real option for breaking contact. It's a meat grinder.

Re: Beach clearing/assault

I'd say it's more formation based. I've heard the "horseshoe" or half-circle method of disembarking or the direct-line disembark (or dismount). Half-circle: Used to gain a firing line directed towards the front of the boat. Direct-line: Used to quickly get the whole team into nearest cover. What's t...
