After asking about it, I was directed to this part of the forum for ‘tactical’ posts.
I uploaded this video to YouTube yesterday. This is the sort of tactical content I would like to upload directly to Full30.
It is vital to understand how to react to effective enemy fire. Those first few moments under fire can make all the difference between life or death. This video cuts through the nonsense and provides tactical context to what combat veterans know - how to react to enemy fire, how to train to blow through the possible freezes, and how to best stack the odds for survival.
Do not confuse tactical cool-guy shooting with real drills with real tactical context. Train to win the fight!
It’s too bad the video went bad early on.
It eventually comes back on, though.
The audio remained through out…
One essential maneuver to be practiced is mostly forbidden at most ranges.
Dropping to the ground while shooting.
Although practicing this dry firing or airsoft can help.
Just a thought.
Until you get shot at you have no idea what that sounds like or feels like. You can also practice 1,000 practical drills and not properly simulate a gunfight or even just drawing your weapon for the first time. The closest I’ve been able to reliving my experiences is by doing 40 pushups fast then running 200 feet as fast as I can then immediately going into the drill. If your heart isn’t wide open you are not experiencing the same adrenaline dump as you will experience on your first time. Lastly and I know this is an unpopular opinion and I DON’T endorse this behavior in any way. Most people have never heard their weapon fire without ears on. This in itself is a shocking experience.
funny that you mention that - I remember quite a few fukks on the range because the firing line let lose but during engagements never seemed to be bothered or noticed. Course I am paying for the never noticing now.
Yeah, hearing unprotected gun fire can be a shock.
But hearing will recover more than you might expect.
For example, during a 30 round action pistol stage, my ear protection got left at the gate.
It took a couple of days for the cotton in the ears effect to clear up.
But it did and my hearing pretty much returned to normal.
Actually 22 years of racing engines took a larger toll than gunfire.
