Re: Depth Perception

Don't tilt your head too far forward like Chris Costa or else your perception of the target will change.

Re: Muzzle up ore down?

Howe, Lamb, and Vickers are dinosaurs that have failed to keep current thinking that 'the way they did it' is going to stay the top of the food chain for the rest of their life. SEALs have been doing High ready since the 90s. Finally around 2010ish SAFARTEC or however you spell it is teaching and d...

Re: "What the Enemy Should Not Know"

I agree, TTPs change but skills are all the same. A school called TigerSwan founded by ex CAG guys say that same sort of thing. “There are no such things as advanced shooting skills, only perfect execution of the fundamentals under stress.”

Re: Airsoft vs Military Members

Jason Falla wrote before about how after he left SF and went into instructing his shooting skills went up because he had a lot more time to focus on that which would have been taken up with keeping a lot of other qualifications and skills current such as parachute qual.

Re: CQB Trigger Control and the Compressed Surprise Break

Haha it's no biggie TG. I have used the coin trick before and I think it's a very useful diagnostic tool but even with that I have the tendency to slow down too much and take more time than necessary to make a combat accurate hit.

CQB Trigger Control and the Compressed Surprise Break

Reference this page, the section about trigger control. I gather that it talks about the use of a compressed surprise break over an open ended surprise break which can be explain by the video at the end of this post. What are some tips to pick up speed in a compressed surprise break? Dry firing seem...

Balance of Speed and Accuracy/Precision

Not much effort has to be put into searching what the thing in the title of this thread is. Plenty of data on what the average performance standard is for close ranges are (i.e: 5, 7, 10, 15, 25). However I do see very little data on standards that would be more relevant to military applications in ...

Re: Reloading

On weapons with bolt/slide lock (e.g: AR15 type rifles) is it really possible to be able to train to tell when the last shot has been fired and you need to reload in the middle of a fight? Even with all the stress and adrenaline?

Re: Empty Room Syndrome

Clean rooms with paper targets is the killhouse version of the square range. Good for beginners to get used to CQB drills but later on they will need to progress onto FoF for more realistic training before training scars develop.
