Re: Beginner Concepts

This should be taught as an individual skill first then once mastered at the individual level move on to applying it to team tactical problems.

Re: Beginner Concepts

Good beginner concepts are generally fundamentals that can be applied to many things across the board. For CQB a good beginner concept would be angular clearing as it will be applicable to most CQB problems; rooms, hallways and stairs.

Re: Non-Rigid vs Rigid system

Interesting point. But like it was mentioned before units are mostly limited by time and funding to get the training required. Instructors are usually left to do what they can to train people up to the highest level they can with limited resources. So with that in mind I think that the rationale wou...

Re: Non-Rigid vs Rigid system

I think that's a sound strategy. You can't be there to baby sit them forever so you get the stronger guys to pick up the slack for the rest of the team.

Re: Non-Rigid vs Rigid system

Exactly what I was getting at. This gives a good perspective on what it takes to get a team to work like a finely tuned machine.

Re: Non-Rigid vs Rigid system

I think that for many, the rigid system is the standard but, the non-rigid or fluid system is the ideal that we all should strive for. Interesting point TG. I personally would have looked down upon people using the rigid system as unmotivated sloths but you point here reminded me that not everyone ...

Re: Non-Rigid vs Rigid system

Very good points. I have also seen failings in others when they clearly have no understanding as to the why of how or what they are doing and as you said it starts with a lack of depth in understanding as to how things like the tactics they are using "ticks".

Non-Rigid vs Rigid system

This thread is a reboot of this thread. Alternatively known as fluid vs non fluid. Non rigid: Formations are made based on prior positioning and is situational. For example when stacking up the man nearest to the door will most likely end up as point man and the next nearest will be behind the point...

A second edition of Contact is now available on amazon that apparently has over 200 new pages of info. Ordered it and will report back on what it's like.

Re: Flashbangs in Room Entry

You are right about the over reliance on flashbangs, they are just another tool to be used and the survival of the team comes down to good tactics at the end of the day. Not to say that they are useless but at the same time they do not grant invisibility or invincibility to the team during the entry.

I've seen military snipers use that standing up in a video. Can't remember which one though.

Yep, we already had a discussion about condition 3, its not really an option unless you are running a single action revolver like a cowboy. :lol:

Re: DIY Glock trigger improvement

Eh the Sig seems nice I just don't feel the DA trigger is good for first shot consistency. I'm guessing you carry yours condition 2 with chamber loaded and hammer down?

Re: Yeager Tactikzz

I would agree that there are a number of things wrong that can be spotted in his CQB vids but I always attributed that to the fact that most of the time these classes are composed of a bunch of random people put together and made to work as a HSLD team in a short amount of time. Maybe I'm wrong?

Re: BJJ--How applicable?

Great for ground fighting and grapelling but that's where it ends. “In my doctrine, I dislike preconceived, narrow spirit. You must study this well.” The lesson is clear. Do not be limited in your studies. If you study Tae Kwon Do, add Wing Chun and Brazilian Ju Jitsu to the mix to be come less "nar...
