Reviewing Head Shots

When drilling on “Head Shots” in relation to STOPPING a Bad Guy IMMEDIATELY, it is VERY Important to understand BRAIN ANATOMY.

Here are two articles on the subject I highly recommend you re-read:

Bustamonte, I Hate You

 

I can remember as a kid reading through my dad’s stack of Shooting Magazine and always looking forward to Skeeter Skelton’s articles.

Those articles were like western short stories…stories that briefly transported you to a simpler, honest and more rugged time.

Enjoy the ride, I know I did.

 

 

Pistol Corner: Failure to Extract – When Tap, Roll & Rack does not work

Failure to extract – when tap, roll, rack does not work

 

When you train, train to clear malfunctions with the use of dummy rounds.

Although this type of stoppage is rare, it does happen and if you don’t train for it you will be that much slower clearing it when the chips are down and your * is on the line.

Prepare Accordingly.

Rates of Fire for the Rifleman

 

Reed and Heed.

“Weapons employment and squad firepower are not determined by how fast Marines can fire their weapons but how fast they can fire accurately.

So how does this translate into practice? Simple; the rifleman’s rate of fire is as quickly as he can aim down his sights, squeeze off an accurate shot, acquire another sight picture, and squeeze off another accurate shot. That’s all you need to remember. This technique naturally adjusts the rate of fire to different ranges. It will take you longer to line up a shot at greater ranges, which means that your rate of fire at greater ranges is decreased. Conversely, your rate of fire increases as the distance to your target decreases.
