Re: One eye vs both eyes open

I shoot with both eyes open, pistol, smg and long gun. It's just the way I was trained.

Re: The Combat Handgun Grip

Excellent video demonstration of the combat handgun grip on a semi-auto! The trainer stated his point of view and then, demonstrated from all angles how the recoil moves the weapon. Good post!

Re: Best way to nautralize a threat?

I really can't add anything useful to what Ryan and Jack said. Train to adapt to changing circumstances is the best advice I was ever given. Don't become wedded to any one particular drill or technique, in anything. I was taught to use the Failure drill but, whatever works for you.

Re: Hostage rescue

the best way... is the cheap way... balloons and tape... and some imagination... Wow, that brings back memories. LOL. Absolutely! Go with the balloons as hostages and use airsoft guns if you can get them. The drills of coming through the doors and shooting the bad guy past the "hostage" (balloon) m...

Re: Revolvers for CQB

Hmmm... Never considered this before. I learned to shoot a rifle first, then, a pistol. The first pistol I fired was a Walther .38. Very smooth. I then fired the S&W Model 10. After qualifying on the .38, I moved to the 1911 .45ACP and then the 9mm. Once I found out much fun the semi-automatics were...

I know the acronym, Jack. I was taught it a LONG time ago. Still comes in handy on the longer shots, as you said.

Re: Gloves or no gloves?

Yup, gloves. Invest in a decent pair of assaulter's shooting gloves and practice shooting with them as much as possible. I spend one shift every two weeks, wearing them the entire shift. It improves my dexterity and eases issues with discomfort. I've taught entire classes while wearing them. Try doi...

Re: CQB shooting techniques and weapons handling

I have to say that the video was quite good. The two shooters demonstrated excellent body language communication and while their two man drills could have been a little smoother, I can find absolutely no fault with their technique. These guys moved very well and could have been operators that I trai...

Re: Where do I begin??

Jack gave you excellent advice. The only bit I can add, is spend as much time as you can with your weapon in your hand. Get completely comfortable with it. Going to the range is important but, just drawing it smoothly and dry-firing it many times in succession will improve your handling abilities. A...

Re: hand postion

Wow, that's a trick question! First, you'd have to get me to carry a Glock! 8) No offense to the Glock lovers in here. I'm a dedicated Sig man, ever since the military. But, if I'm about to enter the "fatal funnel" with my Sig in hand, it would be two-handed. Two handed, I have better control over w...

Re: Krav Maga

Interestingly enough, although krav maga and kapap might appear interchangeable to someone unfamiliar with them, they were created independently of each other. It's true that for a time the IDF only taught kapap to certain soldiers that they felt would need more intensive combative training beyond b...

Re: Dealing with a combative party who is holding up the tea

Hmmm... Good scenario and question! Some good answers, too. My answer is predicated on the mission. Is this a LE op? Or a military op? If it's LE, are we doing warrant service, narc, HR? If it's military, same questions. 5 or 6 man stack? If it's LE, I'd consider having a LTL option available in the...

Re: Controling people and gaining a tactical advantage

I have to admit I was appalled at the number of mistakes that were illustrated in the video. Ryan did such a good job of pointing them out so, I won't bother reiterating them. I will say that my favorite way of restraining someone is either the LAPD "felony stop" or give verbal commands to the subje...
