Art of the Tactical Carbine DVD
So Ashly and I just got this three DVD set in today. We watched part of the first one of the series and it's full of great stuff, I feel like I picked up some useful tips and techniques, I really want to start training this stuff seriously, not so much because I expect I'll have to shoot anyone but it interests me as another martial art to add to my skill set.
We're planning on doing some carbine courses when we get the chance but I feel like the DVD is a good primer on what to expect. As we watch more of the series I'll update with my impressions but I'm loving it so far.

Insert joke about learning martial arts from a DVD?

You can practice a whole lot of MOUT training with paintballs or simunition. I don't remember what I've forgotten about all of that stuff now.
You may want to practice a modified tactical stack and some room clearing with your partner if you get the chance. It'd be really cool to integrate some K9 handling in with the MOUT stuff. I'd rather that my dog get tagged instead of me in a real situation...

Yeah, we were talking about doing the partner drills with our airsoft guns to practice. There's actually an airsoft place here in Atlanta where they teach courses on CQB tactics that I want to check out (taught by SWAT instructors).
I just wish tactical firearms training was something you could do like other martial arts where you sign up for your yearly membership and train every day.
But yeah, the DVD was really cool. I learned a lot that I didn't know just about how to hold your rifle, reloading, how to clear a jam etc.. lots of good basic info in addition to all the groovy tactical drills.

What a cool idea...
