OK, wtf is that at :25 and :45?

Also, why are they being pulled out of chairs? If an attacker was pulling you out of a chair to knock you on your rear(not unreasonable I guess), wouldn't you train to shoot the attacker and not another target in the opposite direction?

wtf?

That's also great at 2:15 how he's keeping cover behind an object while moving, except that object is a cardboard box... It's not like you're going to be flipping around a mailbox, dumpster, or a car with one hand like that.

Dude, LOL, that's the dingleberry shuffle. Although I do like the walking on unstable rolling logs while shooting drill.

On a serious note, I thought the thread was a complete joke until the video started...

But the video is the joke

The idea of training while standing on an unstable platform, ok that makes sense(I know I couldn't do it). But the rest of it...

The people that put these courses together, and then think their promo videos look cool, I really wonder what they're thinking. I'm also waiting for a tactical class that demonstrates how to draw while dancing(****, this video came close) in the event you're doing the electric slide and have to draw and fire in a self defense scenario.

Agreed. I think a better and more realistic video would be tactics for someone on the toilet during an assault. Or best strategies if you've got your hand down your pants Al Bundy style on the couch. "101 cool things you could do with your semi-auto firearm that PROBABLY won't result in shooting yourself or someone you can at least tolerate" would be a good working title...

Hmm...

Can you still wipe and flush, or do you have to wait for the police to collect evidence?

The cardboard box flip is just getting the student used to not only manipulation of objects while firing at a target, but also on changing your position based on changing cover. It goes hand in hand with the bamboo limbo they were doing. Keeping your firearm pointed at a threat while advancing on that threat through, over and around objects.

Most LEO training teaches to wait for backup so you can safely transverse the object / obstacle while back-up provides cover. LEO like Alaska State Troopers, & Canadian Mounties don't have that option. You, as a civilian, would not always have that option either.

Oh man, I just laughed out loud while listening to one of the worst speakers ever!

Log razzle-dazzle + gangster aim = video of the day.

I am thinking that there might be some accidents involving shooting your self if you are not already very experienced. Hopefully this is an extremely advanced class that is not open to most people.

How about climbing under a table to get closer to cover without exposing too much of yourself, and still keeping your weapon pointed in a safe direction or toward the threat.

For lots of the bamboo stuff, think of anything falling on you. A clothes rack in a store, for example. If you practice getting a simple object like a log off of you while drawing your weapon you're that much more prepared for when you need to get something else out of your way.

Them shoving people out of chairs was interesting, too. If you hear a gunshot while you're sitting down at a restaurant or something, do you think you're going to get up all calm and collected like normal? No, you may fall out of your chair, or someone who got startled close by may knock you out of your chair.

And none of that has anything to do with slapping a bamboo stick back and forth before drawing, or practicing how to flip a cardboard box to use as cover(I wouldn't call that concealment either) while shooting.

Its for the Peru PD, bet they had some marching powder before training.







Joke aside, there is a lot of focus about staying on target, no matter the situation.

My imagination or is there way too much gangster side hold in that video. Any viable reason for that hold?

I think it has to do with controlling recoil and aligning sights while shooting with one hand. I'm not an expert, but that's what I've been told.

I think canting the gun to absorb the recoil is what youd be looking for... not a re-enactment of an early 90's LA gangster movie.

But you could always go full and have a set up like this!
