Re: physical fitness tests

Crossfit is extremely popular with a lot of Teams these days.

Re: Dogs

Yes. Lethal force is an option. The big problems with shooting dogs is that they can be very difficult to shoot due to the fact they like to circle you(which creates muzzle sweeping problems with other team members). Also they are likely going to be the first thing encountered in a structure and the...

Re: Cold Weather OPS

I saw the worst cold casualty I have ever seen the other day. He was suffering from hypothermia and frost bite. He could hardly talk and was very confused. His fingers were also white as the snow. Another twenty minutes and this guy would have been dead for sure. Scary stuff.

I don't believe the Movie plot and the hostage situation is played out in a realistic manner, but I do believe that the communication and bounding is tactically sound. Although I wouldn't recommend the moving operator turn his back to move at that close distance with guns pointed at him.

Well. I think you always have to be aggressive. Even on a slow stealth search aggression is high. It is contained, but it is still right their ready to be released if the situation calls for it. This is the basics of Hunter or Hunted. You always have to have a hunter mentality no matter what you are...

I believe it can be done effectively. However I do agree that 90 percent of the time they know you are at least in the building, if not working that corner. I wouldn't rule it out as a technique though. The real advantage of slicing the pie isn't always stealth. A lot of times it is more about the f...

Interesting. I don't watch TV but still interesting.

The Pentagon? That's kind of like watching something where an FBI accountant is teaching close quarters combat, it sounds odd.

I'm sure it is legit though.

Doing things right 2. aggression 3. count on things going wrong but be optimistic that you will ...

Yep. Smith and Wesson Airweight .38 caliber. Not my first choice for a primary weapon but a great back up gun.

I shot a couple hundred rounds today out of a SMALL revolver. Doing CQB shooting. Challenging to be sure but it got the job done. A very reliable back up weapon. Even if I am carrying a large semi automatic handgun it is still nice to have a small revolver in a holster, pouch or pocketed somewhere f...

My opinion. DO NOT MISS. Make it happen.

Obviously the most consistent way to do that is to use your sights, or at least aim the weapon to some degree.

This is a good technique, but there is a hidden danger that I have discovered. When the standing operator transitions to his handgun he has a tendency to muzzle sweep the kneeling operator with his handgun. This should be drilled. I learned the hard way when I saw it happen while I was teaching this...

breaching options and ideas

Shouldering metal doors dose not always work like it does on TV. It took me five tries to figure this simple fact out. However the wooden door on the other side gave way after five or six solid kicks.

There is no teacher like experience I guess.

This would be a good tactic to use when you had real cover such as a brick wall.
