Re: Find Your Optimum Shooting Stance

A few things that i notice: - His holster keeps the pistol so high he has to bend at the waist to be able to draw it, sort of opposite of the "Safariland Dance" tha...

Yep. Used over here. It's NATO standard, after all, isn't it? ;-)

Re: Beer can or Index magazine

Depends on the mag pouch. If it covers up a lot of the mag (most "shingle" or internal type pouches do), I'll generally use a pistol magazine type grip. I.e. index finger along front of magazine, "point" mag into magwell. Either that or a sort of pull-mag-up-a-bit-then-beercan-grip-it move. If the p...

Re: "Through Room" Shot

Always think depth! Don't just focus on what's right in front of you - e.g. the door to the next room. Position yourself so you can cover in depth, both inside structures and outside. CQB shooting may not be as close as you think. As an example, think school hallways. As for shooting through an "unk...

Re: LACE

Liquids are definitely important. Didn't think it was a big deal in short-duration, CQB-type work. Always time to drink before and after the mission. Until one exercise in really hot, humid weather wearing full kit and fighting house to house. That got me sweating like a pig and my head spinning fro...

Norwegian national SWAT team in a news clip. It's actually about the 10-year team commander leaving because he's unhappy with the lack of progress in the Norwegian police.

Re: Pump the Shotgun - Myth or Reality?

While Mr Haley states that a shotgun can be used to scare someone, I also believe he says something along the lines of, "I don't use a shotgun to scare someone - I use a shotgun to shoot someone." Which I think is close to what most of us on here think about shotguns. IMO, if you willfully enter a s...

Re: MOUT vs CQB

Isn't MOUT an umbrella term, including CQB, humanitarian aid, patrolling, etc etc.? Basically every operation the military undertakes in an urban environment is MOUT, whereas CQB is just that - Close Quarters Battle.

Re: "Improvised Shooting Position"

Just got back from a course, and that's given me a thought or two. We did shoot some steel at 150-200 m, with a 200 m zero. Not too difficult (hold centre of steel torso for every shot), and not really long-range shooting. So my shooting tip of the day is: Don't shoot at your zero distance. Go beyon...

Re: "Improvised Shooting Position"

I just like to get away from the tacticool crowd... and I believe Haley/Costa pioneered that stupidity. Some concepts are fine but teach me more while I'm crouched or prone hugging cover. :lol: Grip is a key concept and mass can be a benefit I agree with that. You're such a tactical hipster, trying...

Re: 4 KEY PREMISES FOR POLICE SHOOTINGS - Trevor Thrasher

I just think it's a case of definitions. Some people would define "indexing" as point shooting, or define anything but a hard front sight focus as point shooting - I personally don't. It's a bit of a gray area, though. IMO, point shooting has it's place, but that's in extremely close quarters where ...

Re: 4 KEY PREMISES FOR POLICE SHOOTINGS - Trevor Thrasher

From what I've seen in police shooting videos, the officers tend to revert back to the stance they're trained to use. That does not mean they actually use the sights of the handgun, but may rather "index" it and present it as they normally would while shooting with a target focus. IMO, not quite the...
