Re: Knowing the Enemy

The problem i think is that WE WESTERNERS are afraid to take the racist path and consider everyone of middle eastern decent a possible target as well as everyone who exhibits Muslim features or behavior. Of course I'm not so stupid to understand that such actions only cause more friction, and possi...

Re: Knowing the Enemy

Sorry for the long reply. TLDR: Religion matters in this war. We can talk interpretation all day but there is no objective reality behind these words. We are currently behind on the 'propaganda war.' Within the current geopolitical conditions this thread is very relevant again. western Europe is pla...

Re: Western vs Eastern mindsets

Russian OSN's take care of criminals before sending then to a holding cell. I sometimes wish this attitude was more prevalent in western countries. Yeah I've been looking at Russian units seeing as they've really got into limited entries. Let's just say that most of the videos either end up with th...

Great quote. I wish some "cowboy" units got their head in the game. Training and making 5% shots may be fun and highspeed but the reality of taking a life is not.

Re: What vest do you guys wear off-duty?

The latter. Little to no crime. It's great. I know cops who carry, even cops who barricade their house. There's some small towns in Australia, especially rural NSW, that house a lot of Islamists and suspected terrorists. Some apparently 'train' in our forestry outback. And a lot of dudes up there ha...

Re: Colour System to Room Entry

Black is also a color used to describe a suspects appearance and or position. If you only hear 'black' and there's chatter you might look for a suspect wearing black, or is behind an actual black door. maybe you should pick colors not often used to describe colors of skin, clothing and or furniture...

Trying to initiate contact so you can confirm enemy presence. This is rather off the cuff but like recon by fire.

Re: Pinning the Door

I think the 2 guys pinning their own side of the doors in the beginning is the best way. they don't have to use devices, just their bodies. This way they pin the doors exactly as long as they need, and never take their hands off their guns. Do you know a better way? besides blowing off the hinges? ...

Re: Colour System to Room Entry

How would you use this during a job? Green glowsticks work, but I don't like the idea of skipping rooms and progressing past possible hostiles. It can be a verbal or visual system. I was thinking more verbal. You don't want the team to go in? You see too many people fumble words and shout "NO NO NO...

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...
