    Most teams have personalized handsignals that suit the environment. Military and LE Agencies refuse to standardize anything that has to do with communications.

    nice. That makes sense, it's agile.

    Does anyone have experience with transitioning betw 2 different sets of hand signals? How bad is the learning curve?

    For the most part, basic handsignals are similar but because of the mission variance between LEOs and Military.

    Learning curve is the same as other simple tasks in a stress environment, they must be repeated until they are reflexive. During my military training for VBSS, it took 2 weeks to streamline the handsignal communications but it wasn't the main priority. It was taught in conjunction with movement/tactics and it was part of the curriculum.

    Law Enforcement primarily uses it among SWAT or specialized operators. Most beat cops weren't very fluent outside of the basic eyes, hold and field of fire instruction.
