Ideas & Concepts,

Bad reps don’t count

W​hen I first started shooting, I was obsessed with my round count. I knew that the top pro shooters shot tens of thousands of rounds each year in training and competition, and I believed that shooting that kind of volume would get me to that level. It did work a little. From 2011-2013 I shot… read more »

Communication Confusion

One of the most neglected aspects in Close Quarter Combat (CQB) training is communications. What I mean by this is- How to correctly pass information so that the team may react with speed and decisiveness, in an appropriate manner. The reason why communications is so neglected is it is usually last in the priority of… read more »

Turning Corners, What’s the Rush?

My first military CQB (Close Quarters Battle) training experience was not actually in a room or building, but instead in a trench. Back in 1990 (yes, I am old) my infantry unit spent a lot of time clearing trenches in preparation for the 1991 Gulf War. It was during this training we were taught the… read more »

The Folly Of The Four Man Stack

“CQB is a war of angles.” The first time I heard this was back in 2004 from Rich Mason, owner and head instructor of DARC (Direct Action Resource Center).

I have been really focused on the Precision Rifle Series Gas Gun, specifically Tactical. I ran the series with a mostly stock… read more »

So you Need to Buy Body Armor? Start With ‘Why’

Note: This is the first in a series of articles I will be writing on body armor and helmets. This article is geared toward the Law Enforcement community. However, the same principles apply for any organization that requires body armor as a part of their job description. 25 years ago this month, Rangers from Bravo… read more »

Control the Hall Control the Floor

In close quarter battle (CQB) the standard practice with regards to hallways with most U.S military, standard operating procedures (SOPs) is to treat halls very much the same as linear danger areas. Those danger areas should be crossed and entered only when you have to, and at your own risk! One reason for this is… read more »

WWDLD? (What Would Dave Landis Do?)

Matt asked me to start a series of short articles on leadership, and specifically leadership in the law enforcement world. Frankly, some of the issues are unique to the field, but mostly quality leadership is quality leadership. My first SGT after getting off of FTO (Field Training) status as a young rookie copper was Dave… read more »
