Re: Room Clearing versus Combat Clearing

The way the system I've been taught, and teach, works, it's basically the same system either way. Whether you simply make sure rooms are empty or frag every room before entry, the same basic techniques and movements apply. This keeps the system simple, and still allows for escalation or de-escalatio...

Re: Muzzle up ore down?

Use both. When I'm covering something or up front/ready to enter as no 1, my eyes are just above my sights, muzzle ready to snap up into a firing position. When I'm moving around or stacked as no 2, my muzzle is generally down (and outside no 1). I find coming up from low ready is faster than moving...

Re: High Speed Gear Strategies

Wasn't happy with mag pouch on belt. Too much other stuff on the rig getting in the way, what with mags, baton, pepper spray, TQ, comms, cuffs, dump pouch and medkit +++. The crowbars fit just nicely in the MOLLE webbing, though. Anyone have any idea how long it takes for lightsticks to degrade when...

Re: High Speed Gear Strategies

I can definitely see the advantage of this. I, however, don't really have a need for that kind of speed in my job. I do like having flashbangs strapped on people's backs. This makes them easily accessible for the no 2 or 3 man (who's gonna be the one throwing the bang). Regarding mag pouches. If you...

Re: Weapon Attachments

Apart from the standard Aimpoint optic: M3X flashlight, mounted at 3 o'clock, as far forward as possible. Reduces shadow from the barrel in the head/chest area and lets me get my hand as far out as possible when shooting from my left shoulder. Pressure switch taped at 12 o'clock. Far enough forward ...

Re: 4 KEY PREMISES FOR POLICE SHOOTINGS - Trevor Thrasher

Question: how is "point shooting" defined? There is a difference between pointing your weapon at something without using the sights at all and looking through the sights at the target (i.e. target focus) without actually being conscious of your sight picture. What stance does one point shoot from? H...

Re: Suppressors & CQB?

No doubt suppressors make communication easier - I'd have loved for everyone to have them when trying to shout orders with people shooting in other rooms during MOUT training! :P If using a short-barreled weapon like the HK416K, Colt Commando etc., the barrel length with a suppressor on will be basi...

Re: Manipulation: CMS

It's the same grip I use for barricade support, but not for general shooting. Several reasons: - I don't actually carry my rifle with that grip, meaning I have to change grip for shooting - Accessories: activating flashlights with push-buttons on the back won't work, can't get a good grip with a top...

Re: Room Clearing Communications

Obviously, comms depends on the situation (dynamic or subdued entry - have we gone noisy yet?) and the skill of the team. For a well-trained team, there is less need to involve the team leader (TL). For a less well-trained team, the TL should be more involved in making the decisions. For example: (s...

Re: High Speed Gear Strategies

If speed really was a priority, I'd probably rather go for something like this: http://www.hsgi.us/proddetail.php?prod=HSG-TACO&cat=34 As opposed to having the pin strapped down. In my head, that sounds a bit like having the safety off at all times just in case you need to use your rifle quickly. Bu...

Re: High Speed Gear Strategies

Pin being strapped down sounds like an accident waiting to happen to me. In general, keep things compact and prioritize your kit. How much ammo do you actually need to carry? How much water? Skip non-essential kit and make sure you have easy access to what you really need. Make sure you can reach th...
