"Through Room" Shot

Post by Ryan » Mon Dec 15, 2014 3:11 am

How do you take a shot from the room you are in, into another, through an unknown pathway for example through a hallway into a room you haven't cleared? How do you deal with someone doing the same to your entry team?

Always think depth! Don't just focus on what's right in front of you - e.g. the door to the next room. Position yourself so you can cover in depth, both inside structures and outside. CQB shooting may not be as close as you think. As an example, think school hallways.
As for shooting through an "unknown" area - not a problem, so long as you know what you're shooting at. You're responsible for every round that leaves your firearm.
More guns and bullets make bad guys go away faster,
which in turn makes everyone in the area safer.

+1, sir!
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.
