I have been trying to figure out how you would do points of domination/flood technique, clear a whole house and do it without taking all day. I like the fact that everyone stops and has a sector of fire, this would reduce the risk of shooting your partner in the back, but it just seems like it would...

He dose not decide in the doorway. He decides before he gets to the door way. There is no pause and yes the second guy has to anticipate which way he is moving and go the other way.

Extra Gear

Excluding basics like a helmet, vest, gun, flashlight, knee pads, radio, cuffs and things like that. What are some other items that you guys think should be in your gear while making entries and why?

On a more serious note. Read this article and decide which type of person you are before you even think about joining a military special operations group.

This article is on Sheep, Wolves and Sheep dogs.

It is a little of this and a little of that. I would say that for better or for worse we use the imidiate threat. This may not be a perfect system, but I have to admit it works well. We clear rooms and houses very quickly.

Good points. A systematic search might be a better term than methodical. I think Precision room clearing means that you go into the room and sort out the good guys from the bag guys, instead of just throwing in a handgernade. Going deep into the house to where you know the threat is hiding, is very ...

That is a nice looking gun. I have never seen that one before. The thing I don't like about it is that the sights sit high above the muzzle. Same problem with using the M4. In order to shoot the suspect between the eyes at close distance you would have to aim for his hair line. But I'm sure it is a ...

Stealth and Dynamic. Absolutly. I like that you are thinking about the big picture and not just the individual search. Good work on everything you guys have put together so far. There is a lot more out there to consider. One thing I will through out there is a methodical search. This is more often w...

I like the fact that you have thought through this a lot. I don't think there is a right or a wrong way to do it. I think the trick is to be on the same page and to get through the door quickly. We leave it up to the point man. Which ever way he wants to go the second guy gose the oposite way. That ...

You are not wrong. The police are having to be more like the military and military is having to be more like the police. Both have been learning from each other for a long time. To an extent Police and Military are doing the same things when they enter buildings. However every team is different. I d...

It would be hard to say what would be the best system. Although I have looked into the SPEAR system a little bit and it seems like a good one. Martial arts is a broad subject with a lot of variables. I used to compete in Tae Kwon Do and can tell you that it is a poor choice for SWAT. First of all wh...

The simple answer is to say no. I don't know of any team that is using lasers for aiming. Two problems with lasers. One, when you do shoulder the weapon and look down the sights, the laser beam can not be seen. Two your weapon is going to get banged around in your trunk and in the field. I wouldn't ...

I am assuming that we are talking about real entries? The thing about doing entries is that you almost always use Violence of Action. The whole point of SWAT is to totally overwhelm the suspects and not give them much of a chance or any time to think. Most of the time when you do an entry there are ...

Let me see if I can clear this up. First of all missing is not an option. You can not miss. What you are talking about is point shooting v's aimed fire. I suggest you think about it another way. Let us call it an exceptable sight picture. If you are three feet away it is simply point and shoot, usua...
