Many people do this stuff, but many don't.
There are other skills that are also important. Yelling verbal commands and warnings, and performing 360 scans to identify or eliminate more potential threats.
our local range has very simple and traditional straight lanes and no where to really train tactically like this. I know people with private land that and i have a guy that will show my stuff he learned while in PD. but we are waiting for the weather to break.


Are there any special videos or anything you recommend for people like me that dont have any facilities to train in/at?
