handloading is fine for target // practice.


Non-cheap factory loads are a must for any real situation.

Readymag is much faster, but also more clumsy. Any added weight to your gun increases the time it takes to move the barrel from pointing in this direction to that direction.

I think the answer to the usefulness of the readymag depends on how often you forsee yourself reloading in that situation.

To be honest, as a secondary weapon I would rather have a revolver. If I had need of it, this means that either my primary weapon had some sort of malfunction or I ran out of ammunition. If the former then I want my backup to work for sure. If the latter, then sure 6 rounds might not be as much as 2...

One of our speed and accuracy drills goes like this. Take your replica. Unload the mag. Place 1 bb in the mag. Now with AEG, place your replica on safe, and put it on the ground with the mag next to it. Your friend will do the same 15 feet away. with gas, you need not place your replica on safe, as ...

Actually, this was noticed by me not long ago as well. I play highly competitive CQB airsoft now and run one of the most successful teams in the area. We regularly get marines from Quantico, State police or Local police units, and have SWAT train or play at our facility. Technically, these operators...

Dump pouch means you have to fish around inside it to get it back. magnets mean it is always in the same spot, means same motion, means practiceable and thus faster and smoother.

One of my teammates uses magnets to actually hold his mags onto his ACU's

note: KFM works well in close quarters unarmed combat.
However, it will not work well for law enforcement type or military type encounters. KM will probably work better / best. Although silat as taught by guru maul is highly effective too as evidenced by his training of special military units.

Unarmed combat is legitimate though. As you well know, CQB environments move quickly. Often times one might not be able to get to your knife if somebody surprises you. Other times, one might not want to knife a non-combantant that must be put down or moved out of the way.

Doesnt work too well when they are completely prepared and expecting you. The reason being that your shoulder or side of the helmet will always be visible a split second before the rest of your gun / head comes around the angle. Otherwise, this is a very useable method, and everybody ought to be pro...

Really, when the element of surprise is gone and a subject is expecting you. Dynamic entries become much less useful. The use of distractions or aids is paramount. A room with a door is especially hard to work with because you are robbed of advance knowledge of the room layout. blueprints will only ...

You shouldnt have to. For sake of redundancy, each member should know and be proficient at multiple spots. Thus a rigid system is not really needed. Rigid systems might work out in field to keep command and control better, but in CQB environments the team must be able to respond quickly to events. T...

Lights definitely do draw fire when stuck around corners. especially in low light situations. I do really recommend mirrors instead. Something sortof what a dentist might use.

Light contact is okay, pushing is not advisable. The second person ought to be making contact with the shoulder of the first, either with his shoulder or with a hand. There SHOULD be some forward pressure, so that you are not left behind when the point moves, but that pressure should not be so great...

Haven't been on lately because we just started up an airsoft team. Already we are one of the best CQB teams in this area. We found that we have to use a non-rigid flexible system because people must always drop out to cover a hall or angle while the rest of the team moves through. It's too hard to k...

From what I understand, the first and second scan the middle of the room, then the corners, while the third and fourth scan the corners before the middle. If I have that right, I don't much like it. Hard corners are too far down the list, and the first and third ought to be checking the same place a...

without rules, a double leg takedown isnt hard to stop because you can just come down on the back of the neck.

Exactly my thought, except I think it would be possible to fit two at a time staggered. One on the left wall, one slightly behind to his right. Basically, two stacks.

Thats a good point. I was, however, going from the assumption it was just a standard domination type entry and no hostages or bombs or anything. It's bad form to leave a possibility of threats to your rear. Even in the event of a hostage situation (since with a bomb you just clear the building for t...
