Re: Mil/LEO opinions please
How about the actual dynamics of a gunfight, the physiological and sensory effects of combat stress, cover and concealment etc? Pistol fights are a shoot till hes down or fleeing affair.
As you mentioned..issues like emergency reloads, malfunctions etc. should be included.
I like to cover a basic engagement sequence...
Engage (include movement to cover or cqb technique if possible)
Scan and breathe
Covering what you should do once the opponent is down is important too and differs depending on your role. Civilian self defense differs from military or law enforcement applications. I would be considering approaches for handcuffing...others would not.
Hope that helps.
