It really depends on the angle, because if he can shoot down at you once you enter the room, he would be shooting before you completed your sweep of the normal height.

In terms of the OP, i would probably just have a team cover the back door and the entry team in front. Approach from the right side..the wooden fence doesnt look like it would be much of a problem to kick down and there are no windows / sightlines from the house to that side. Flashbangs through the ...

If there is a recessed area above / behind the entryway that your team does not know about.....well then you do not know about it and you are royally screwed. You want to get your team inside as quickly as possible, if there is a subject in the middle of the room that was somehow not engaged while y...

I'm going to work from the assumption that you are in a hall, trying to get to the end of the hall, and there is an open door in the middle of the hall on the left side. Moving in file down the hall, Point's AOR is the door, 2nd is the end of the hall. Rest of the team will slow as Point reaches doo...

Sorry for being gone so long, but i got busy with work and school and such. When clearing a room, one should know your AOR, as well as all your teammates AOR's, thus when a person calls door or hall or window, you should already have a general ideal of the layout. Additionally, numbers are not neede...

i know of army / marines that buy their own scopes and mount them all the time.


for small lights like mini-mag lights, you can just hold on to them while you are reloading.


I dont really use free lights though, just lights that are attached to my weapon. pressure switches are awesome.

i always put the light under my right armpit, that way if i had to move for whatever reason i could do so without leaving things behind.

realistically though, i'd probably just drop the light into another one of these pockets. god knows the tac vest i have has enough pockets.

Being closer together is advantagous in that it heightens the element of surprise. Basically, you commit as many people as possible in as short a period of time. Only downside of this is that if the point and second are not fast / proficient enough, the rest of the team can be taken down. As it stan...

I'm a 21 year old soon to be LE. My hope is to eventually get into a SWAT unit. My uncle is a rather high up in a department in his area, and that allowed me to get to watch his departments' unit drill and train. I also have a few friends in the marines, and some in the army as well. Additionally ma...

I have heard that the SPEAR system is the most used. Best system for CQB in confirmed space. Dunno if its the best, WC was designed for use in enclosed areas / hit and run warfare. I think pretty much anything that is designed for grappling / takedowns will be effective enough for most SWAT units. ...

Actually, since it is a real estate picture. I've no doubt that the yard and flower work will look nice. I don't think it necessarily has any bearing on the occupants. Of course they will tidy the house to take a picture of it so it can retail for higher. Approaching the front door from the right si...

I would assume however, that applicants for CQC type assault teams are interested in this sort of field. They likely would have kept up with their instruction and possibly worked with other officers during off duty time. In any event, my friend is currently taking BJJ and MMA classes. He's asked me ...

It were me I'd approach from the side, houses with aluminum siding generally don't have very many windows (if any at all) on the side. Bring a ladder, get onto the roof, come in through the windows. Top left one in particular looks good. I'd make a guess that its a split level house, what with the w...

It was my understanding that all SWAT teams were taken from the police. And It was also my understanding that all police officers received basic hand to hand instruction. So if they know basics, it shouldnt be too hard to teach them additional takedowns.

Good point on the having to reverse directions. I've never had to make a police entry, done them in airsoft and i know a little bit of police procedures from studying to be a police officer, so i'm just speculating. Perhaps a sweep would be better then? I've never done judo so i dont know much about...
