I'd say it works better for a police operation then a military one. Police entry squads generally have so many advantages when compared to the military. Generally they know the floor plan, and have blueprints. Additionally, microphones, cameras, and thermal imagers play a huge role in helping to pin...

All depends on the situation, if it is your team only and you have no follow up teams coming in behind you then stay out of arms reach and clear the rest of your assigned area. Hand Snap, and failing that, arm bar. Pain Compliance measures generally work very well, and even if he attempts to resist,...

Exactly, teams should strive to minimize the amount of uncleared space they expose themselves to, and also to minimize the time that said space stays uncleared. Whichever way your team in particular can do faster and more efficiently is the best way. There is no "one" way for things to work.

Long guns I tend to move in a high ready, with muzzle dipped very slightly to improve sight lines.

Handguns I move in much the same way you do.

One of the newer innovations / theories is a combination of stealth and dynamic. A weakness of dynamic entries is that a building must be cleared rapidly because once the initial entry is made the element of surprise is lost. The new theory that is starting to become adopted is being called by vario...

Regardless, in a single stack one person must hook (that is, if the first crosses then the second must still hook.) The military's logic (and my team's) would likely be that the entry side corner is the most dangerous area and is best to be cleared first. Also the initial hook allows you to clear a ...

Home defense experts and police training will generally teach low ready. This is because a high ready position blocks off some of your sight lines and you must be able to differentiate between combatants and bystanders. Some entry teams will go high ready because they are able to assume that subject...

You almost never want to double stack on an open door. This is because part of your element will have to cross the uncleared door to the opposite side. However if you approach from opposite sides, then a linear stack would require the crossing. One wants to minimize crossing an uncleared open doorwa...
