Dynamic drill

Post by ApexShootingTactics » Mon Jul 11, 2016 1:00 pm

Last week I conducted a training day for a police department. The department explained what they wanted to do and we made it happen in a safe, realistic, relevant manner. This drill is about "getting off the X" (movement), staying orientated with the threat, safe and proficient weapons handling, engaging the threat until it is no longer a threat and much more. Officers were only allowed to have three, four round magazines so we could see what the reload looked like when it matters. Officers were never more than 8 feet away from the target and sometime as close as 1 foot. Sound easy? Every officer except for one had at least one miss. The misses were not horrible but they still missed and in the end the drill proved to be a great evaluation for each officer.

Our website About page says the following:
Apex Shooting and Tactics LLC is deeply rooted in a method of training that is safe, effective, relevant, and encourages a continuous thought process that will demand accountability. Safe and effective techniques, tactics and procedures are the foundation of our student learning objectives. Escalation of training and intensity will vary depending on number of students and their skill levels, though the core of the course will always remain the same.

This drill is not for everyone. Every officer who went through the drill showed some deficiency in fundamentals of marksmanship, weapons handling or tactics. That is what training is about, building skills, identifying weak points and then fixing them.

Here is body cam video from one officer.

Stay Safe, Andrew

To whom much is given much is expected
