How I spent my weekend

Post by Guest on 4/16/2012, 11:09 am

Great combination of force-on-force and live fire training. And today, I hurt. Everywhere.

Our instructor (another instructor in the background in sunglasses). The guy with his hands up showed us what a fast draw looks like. He held his hand out (elbow bent and against his ribs) with a coin on the back of his hand. Someone yelled "FIGHT" and he drew and got a shot off (center mass of the target) before the coin hit the ground.


The guy in blue was the "bad guy". The other guy was standing at the other red training knife in front of the bad guy. As soon as the bad guy started to draw, the good guy starts to move, draws, and fires.


In this shot, there were 2 bad guys that initiate an attack on the good guy from 2 arm lengths away. The guy firing the gun was the good guy.


In this one, the guy with his back to the camera was the good guy. And, yes, he picked up the bad guy in front of him and pinned him to the wall. Very Happy


This was when we were working from our back against a threat. Later, when we were doing full contact work, it became apparent that the odds of ending up on the ground when attacked are pretty good. It's important to know what to do if you end up there.


Another 2 bad guys against 1 good guy. The guy in the blue camo pants is 70 years old. He was going all out all weekend long.


One bad guy with a training knife and another with a foam bat. Proof positive that, even if you win, you'll probably know you were in a fight.


Me doing an after action assessment. We would shoot the target, make sure "he" was down, check to see if he had friends to the left or right, then orbit the target to check the area behind where we were standing while not letting the initial target out of our sight.


Getting up close and personal. After the first time you do this, the muzzle blast doesn't really bother you.


If your right hand is tied up, you can still shoot with the left...


What to do if someone clamps on to you from behind. Shoot him in the junk.



An exercise that showed why it's important to grab the gun if you are trying to disarm someone. it may go off once (preferably while you aren't in front of it), but it won't fire again until the malfunction is cleared.


Working from our backs...


Using the left hand in case the right is injured


Started on our backs and got up while shooting the target.

I did a count this morning, and, all told, I got "shot" less than 20 times out of about 75 "gunfights". All but 2 of those happened when I was the "bad guy". So out of 50 or so gunfights where I was the good guy, I got hit twice - once in the elbow, and one grazing shot across the top of my head. The good news is, the guy that "shot" me is a Deputy US Marshal and he got both shots off in one burst. So I escaped 98% of the gunfights uninjured. Not too bad.
