Comments on Entry Technique: Lateral Bound Snap Entry

Post by Ryan » Thu Jan 31, 2013 8:19 am

The "Lateral Bound Snap Entry" was created by the same guys (or should that be guy?!) who made High Threat Limited Entry (HTLE) - High Threat Systems LLC. Also known as simply... a lateral entry.

"The lateral entry is vastly superior to the direct to threat entry. Two guns can get in the fight; shots are drawn away from the breach point, etc... Guys have studied this and it decreased the chance of #1 being hit and keeps the #2 from catching the same rounds."

I moved this to its own topic because it's a component of Running the Rabbit but I'd rather have specific discussion on it here, reference:

Looks like a hybrid of the traditional technique and limited penetration to me.

Admin said the same thing but it's good to see friendly competition, if not a slightly modified - maybe even "modernized" approach through a hybrid version. Conceptual principles of HTLE: Cover and/or concealment from the doorjamb, bounding movement initiated, snapping onto the threat in a 'pocket' zone, splitting operators and getting the trigger time away from #2 man. Corner-fed demonstrated is obviously an advantage to this technique with limited corners to clear; though the entry and room width I believe demonstrate it at a lesser level because with more space you can be faster and get further into the room without coming to a barricade or obstacle as depicted in the video when he brushes up against the wall.

Lateral entry (modified) seen here 0:30...



Engages hardcorner threat and moves laterally. Moving towards the threat puts you in a linear fight line and thus an "easier" target, stationary or not. Problems? You push far into the room and over-penetrate creating many opening angles for yourself and onto yourself. Any comment on lateral entries generally?

Is this basically 'Running the Rabbit'?

Yes, it's like RTR. I think RTR is harder to teach because some guys still get hogtied on charging the room after #1 man (an immediate entry). I find this to be more focused on fighting from the space, as soon as you get a visual (for #2 man). But if you teach RTR "right" it's basically RTR yes. The "snap" part is specific for snapping around from the doorjamb and engaging threat (a limited entry).
