Re: Suppressors & CQB?

Special Ops use suppressors for mainly flash suppression. If any 'quiet' shooting is to take place there is individuals with mp7 suppressed to handle it.

Re: Why is the MP5 a popular choice for CT teams?

MP7 was brought on board because we have multiple assets with 'bigger' guns. We train head shots so the number of rounds is not too important. Yes it will take a few extra to put a guy down, but you can reach 100 yards on a good day. 9mm is awesome at close distances but any further than 25yards and...

Re: High Chest Pistol Holster, thoughts?

90% of guys who roll with a high chest pistol holster are wearing it there for one reason. Well two reasons... 1. They dont know what they are doing, 2. They are in a vehicle. It is easier in a vehicle to get to a pistol than a rifle and it is easier to get to it on your chest than your leg or waist.

Re: bulletproof vests

I think vest and protection choices are based on the mission of the team. Overseas we hump long distances in mountains at altitude. We wear a kevlar helmet and single stand alone plates. Total weight in protection is around 10lbs not including ammo etc. If you are driving in a convoy during the day ...

Anyone who says they would never use 'blind firing' has never been in a building gun fight.

Re: Hip Shooting

Everything has its place... With a laser and nvgs, sitting down and shooting from the hip with a automatic weapon works the best.

Re: Question regarding room entry

There are techniques for entry that you should practice on every entry for perfect cqb that would not allow an individual to fuck with you from behind a door. The force should pin the person with force of the door and your body in a forward motion.

Re: Comments on Entry Technique: "Front-on"

Clearing corners are paramount. Center of the tool is the responsibility for the 3 man and on. I can think of many reasons why Go in a room and wait for an entry team...in an empty room you feel exposed so you would wait in the corner for the best chance of survival. Doors to the left or right of th...

Re: Strong Wall and Opposing Corners

Opposing corners technique from my experiences has been the reason for many blue on blues, or green on greens. Especially if you are doing hostage rescue style clearance which is fast.

Re: Muzzle up ore down?

Any good operator should be able to flow from up to down and vice versa depending on the situation. If I am toe to toe with someone such as upon entry my gun needs to be up because now my hands are up. If my muzzle is down my hands are down. Which means YOU loose. You against a red man suit.... try ...

Flashbangs have their place: There are two types of uses Defensive - 1 meter in side the room in the doorway.

Tango is not cooperative, and will not negotiate: If this was the case he would have already blown himself up. Otherwise he is still alive because he wants something like to live.

Re: Dogs

If your team is not currently using dogs as apart of clearance then you are way behind the power curve. A dog trained and selected correctly is a force multiplier, and WILL save lives. As far as dogs on target: 90% are not going to bite and are more scared of you then you are of it. In a SWAT type s...
