Asymmetric Solutions – How To Muzzle Sweep Everyone In A Shoot House

I’m not into normally into “regulation”, but will they seriously let anyone start a firearm tactics “training” school?

I browsed around Asymmetric Solutions‘ website (Asymmetric DERP) for a bit, and of course came across the normal “we are advanced tier -9 operators who have operated in operations even in deep space in galaxies you’ve never even heard of” type stuff.  The usual LOL-worthy jargon everywhere too.

At first glance it looks like the walls are just plywood…which they are, but according to Asymmeteric DERP’s comment on the video, the fill is what counts:

Even our small quick hit shoot houses are ballistic such as the one shown in the video. The plywood is a surface facia that prevents splatter. There is ballistic sheeting and 20 inches thick of compressed tire shred before the other side of the wall’s ballistic sheeting and plywood. 5.56 will not penetrate the first sheet and spalls into the plywood. 30 rounds of AP 7.62 NATO in the same impact point will not reach the other side of the wall. It is tested up to .338 Lap Mag.

The one thing I find interesting is sure the walls there are safe (apparently) for the guys on the other side… but why train like this with your entire team running all over the place like a bunch of retards when in a real life situation walls are not going to stop bullets?  The reality is if you try and Mozambique a thug going for his piece in some shitty apartment in the hood and miss, you’re sending shots through walls and potentially into innocent people.

Sonny-Puzikas-AK-Glock-Dual-WieldWho underwrites insurance for places like these?

Looks like Sonny “Shoot House” Puzikas would be right at home there.

Thoughts?  Would train with?

UPDATE. Coincidence? Possibly, but it really wouldn’t surprised me if it was either the same person (hopping from mobile connection to desktop) or just someone they know trying to “help” out:

I would encourage any and all detractors to come out and look at the facility and meet our instructors prior to engaging in the discussion in this manner. We operate two of the largest shoot houses in the country. They do have fully ballistic walls. A brief look on our website would make this apparent.

We have no “Tier 9″ instructors. While many choose not to press themselves to much into the open, one of our cadre, Grady Powell, is an openly known former Green Beret who competed on and won the network TV show Stars Earn Stripes aka Dancing with the Stars With Guns.

The individuals running around like idiots are a full-time professional unit that trains at the facility regularly. I’m not sure what the original author’s CQB training consists of; however, these are fully acceptable methods of breaching and a push instead of hold dynamic clearing technique. Again, a quick view of the website shows other overhead camera angles of the same entry.

We invite anyone to come visit and take a first hand view.

We are always open to reasonable debate on tactics or even having our methodologies questioned so long as it is in a rational and open manner. The original note exceeds that and does not adequately reflect what is on our website nor the quality of our business. There is no inadequate claim as far as our instructors. They are all seasoned professionals with admirable backgrounds as well as good individuals who are very easy to work with. Our facilities are beyond reproach and one of the few places in the United States where anyone much less civilians are allowed in multi-level ballistic shoothouses or 2000 Meter Ranges. While to some it may be a cute line everyone at our company is very proud to be part of or in previous service to “merica.”

In the name of humor you appear to be unfairly denigrating and calling to question a good business with several good people who work there. While it may be fodder for a laugh for your purposes it can potentially cause harm to the livelihoods of people you may not realize you can inadvertently damage with your platform.

We offer you the following:
Please send us an email at admin@asymmetricsolutionssua.com (You are welcome to copy your readers on any of our dialogue)

We will at our cost purchase you a round trip ticket to come check out our facility and instructors. You are welcome to attend or observe one or more of our courses, bunk in our barracks, and even use our weapons and ammo at no charge. We will give you a full tour of the thousands of acres of property we occupy as well as the 28,000 + square ft. of total ballistic shoot house buildings, our full size Forward Operating Base, or walk in Armory and Explosives Vault. You are welcome to shoot at the house walls to determine their ballistic capability or inspect our Federal Firearms License or Federal Explosives License.
You may challenge any of our instructors credentials or experience directly and I am certain they will provide you with DD-214 Forms, BUDs Class Numbers, or whatever documentation you deem adequate.
You are also welcome to refer directly to any of them Derp, Tier 9 or whatever other creative terminology you believe appropriate.

Then having taken a firsthand look I would ask that you report what you have seen just as vigorously and with as much energy to your readers as you have this. We look forward to hearing from you and sincerely hope you’ll pay us a visit and become in spreading the good and truthful word as to what Asymmetric Solutions is and continues to be.

Hey, Asymmetric, nice man, these idiots on this forum won’t take you up on your kind offer though, they are too busy being a bunch of assholes. As the comments reveal, they obviously have reached “expert” level on their Call of Duty video games and now really know their stuff, they don’t need any of your silly training. It’s just easier for them to sit on their fat asses in front of their computer furiously keyboarding away with their Dorito stained fingers.

To be entirely fair, the walls do appear to have a significant amount of thickness, so it is at least plausible that they’d stop bullets.

Still, it’s also appropriate to note that this can allow those using it to fall into some extremely bad habits.

Just a matter of time, if they continue their upbeat tempo of operations in their mission profiles such as the one in that video (and who knows how many “takes” weren’t selected because of even more hideously unsafe gun-handling errors), before one or more of their students receives an extra perforation or three.

Which would result in a lawsuit with no shortage of real trainers lined up to be plaintiffs expert witnesses to parse out the piss poor training practices and how unsafe they are. Which will result in a judgement and closure of their immense training facility…

Even from a tactics standpoint, I didn’t see anything terribly valuable in that video.

I sure as hell wouldn’t spend my training dollars to learn something like that which I’m about as likely to use as I was to win that $430 million Powerball lottery last night.

I feel like this training facility is probably legit, but the photos and verbiage on their website just make them look like chodes, which is my complaint with all of these supposed super badass operator training facilities. You get the standard mix of tacti-cool dudes running around with $2500 pimp my AR-15s, which is exactly what all of these websites look like, but then all of the sudden in the middle of the set, there is an image of some derpy looking dude standing next to George HW Bush and Barbara with black boxes over his eyes. Nothing is more badass tier -12 operator than standing next to elderly presidents, because ‘merica. The only thing better would be a bald eagle flying in front of an american flag with a k-bar in his mouth and the constitution in his talons.

I have watched, rewatched and tripple watched those glorious 34 seconds and I have soaked in their wisdom, I have seen beyond sight, heard with out sound, and bearded with my beard. I will use all their operator techniques at next weekends competition. It will bring me victory! or a DQ within 2 seconds.

Joking aside, seeing the picture on their website about their “balistic proof walls” just looks like a horrormovie waiting to happen they have playwood struts used to hold the walls together… no magical bulletproof tyres there :| but it will give everything a niiice tumble coming out, if that turns you on.

It’s always amusing to read Internet Ninjas waxing profound about actual, real-life dynamic range training centers. Hate to break it to you guys, but … if you are not willing to train like you will fight, you are not going to be prepared for any real world situation.

It is evident that the person who wrote his cute little piece has not even the first clue about the reality of room and house clearing. It’s the most dangerous thing any operator ever does precisely because you get no “do overs” and yes, bad guys may spray lead through walls.

So, let the little boys on this site

Now, I suppose the guy writing this would simply run screaming like a little girl from such a situation, and that’s fine.

He really should leave such work to trained professionals rather than blog about thing he proves by his comments here he has zero knowledge about.

You guys need to put down your video game controllers and get some real CQB training, then come back and let us know how well you did.

nikonmikon August 8, 2013 at 03:22 pm

I agree with you, there is no clean and neat way to train this type of scenario, that’s why it’s so sensational and everyone knows about it. It’s very dangerous. There is a certain level of risk people have to endure during training to be safe and proficient on the battlefield. It’s not pretty. People get muzzle swept (flagged) ALL THE TIME in real battle as well as during training. It’s just something that happens. That’s why they’re training. That’s WHY they’re doing it, to get better. No one is perfect.

czbeardly August 9, 2013 at 05:32 am

If you are refering to me (guessing you are, or at my fistbumping internet ninjas), yes, despite my massive vinkingbeard, I am no operator. However I am competitive handgun shooter (ISPC, I know, IDPA would be more “reals”, but living in a weedy communist-hippie country, IPSC is what we are stuck with) and I try to get to the range atleast 10 days each month for practice.

True, CQB is something I have never done, nor really care to do. I rather leave CQB to the professionals, like one of my very best friend. Ex-military no turned police – working in a Regional taskforce just below the National Task Force, dealing with organized crime, hostage situations, armed kidnapping, bank robbery etc. I have the deepest respect for him and the profession he has, keeping the scum of the earth away from us normal citizens. However if someone wanted me ill, and came krashing down my door, he would be in for a bad time.

However.. I have been priviliged due to my friendship with him being alowed to tag along when they train and/or visiting their “real life dynamic range” and see what they do when they go at it at full speed, and I can tell you this, they do not enter plywood shacks with old tyres in the wall with obvious gaps in them. Just becuse you need to train high risk scenarios there is no sense training with added danger to yourself or those around you. Taking a CQB/Room clearing course is obviously diffrent then training with your normal unit, since at a course you can be stuck with quite alot of people that you do not rely on regulary and/or are totally unsure of their modus operandi.

Also due to being active in the sporting community I have met many a professional in and around the firearms training industry, having one in my club building actuall trainging facilities aswell as various target for the military and police. None of either the privatly owned nor the military/law enforment ranges here, for these types of training scenarios are lacking in saftey. The the walls have semless sheets of balisticgrade steel/metal for well over .308 and rubber layers to soak up any ricochet, and then a layer of wood ontop of that.

I am less upset that they muzzlesweep eachother for days since that is naturally a part of how things will play out in a real combat scenario, yes, there are risks invovled in training. There are even risks IPSC since it is alot of transistions and firing during movement – but then again the security reglement is huge and the list how to get DQ from a match (more or less you did something really stupid).

I am however, quite upset that they claim the enviroment around them is totally safe (ie cannot shoot into another room, totally bulletproof) when it is obviously not.

Asymmetric Solutions August 9, 2013 at 07:20 am

Everything Beardly has said here is absolutely correct until the last line. Our houses are not plywood with tires inside of them. The house has 18 inch thick walls. It is a plywood facia to prevent spall followed by a layer of ballistic sheeting and shredded tire rubber packed into the resulting gap. Tires would, as Beardly said, leave dangerous gaps that would potentially allow an AP round or round that hit the seam of the sheeting in the perfect way to pass. The tightly packed tire shred covers this contingency.

If you look at the video or pictures of the house on the website you will see a large black pile of material on the right side of the house. That is the shredded rubber used to backfill the gap in the walls.

But they know that the only way they can get attention is by posting crap like this, and there are enough idiots out there to think it is cool, then they boost their site visits, get some ad sponsorship and the cycle continues.

Nikon,

You mostly come out from under your bridge on threads like these, where safety violations by a training organization are pointed out. The last time I remember going back and forth with you was a James Yeager thread. You always take the same position of ‘I’m not defending (insert DERP training school here), but the rest of you are just armchair/keyboard commandos, so you should all shut up.’

Those insults don’t mean much coming from an ‘I’m better than everyone else here’ contrarion such as yourself.

I am better than you. You’re a cheerleading idiot.

I think for myself. You’re just mad I don’t agree with your point of view.

Subject: Ex-LEO/Blogger

I was on ENDO’s site and saw the video and I saw your comments. I
used to work for several security companies in St. Louis City and
County and volunteered as a Turnkey in Kinloch many many years ago.
I’m disabled and there is no way I could even survive one of your
courses due to physical infirmities, however I come to St. Louis a
couple times a year. If on my next trip up I could get a tour of your
facilities and interview some of your instructors on camera I would
post it on my blog.

http://txfellowship.blogspot.com

I would like you to know that I will not skew or sugarcoat anything.
I will report it straight or I won’t report it.

I might be coming up to St. Louis next month to get a truck from one
of my brothers who lives in Clayton. If so I would be driving past
your facility on my way to and from my home here in Texas, so if it
would be possible to come by to look at your facilities I would make
the effort to do so and bring my cameras.

Mark *******

If they respond and agree, when I go up I will take my cameras and I will look myself at their shoot house if they allow me to. There is no way I could take any kind of course, plus I doubt they want some disabled guy who uses a cane to try. Until and unless I get an answer and check it out for myself, I’ll withhold judgement.

Thank you for your service to our country and communities as a member of Law Enforcement and for offering to add objectivity to this forum.

I do not disagree with Mr. Bartley or his readers expression of their opinions, but would prefer it be less unfounded insulting and more a discussion of observations. We welcome you to come out to the facility anytime for a course or private tour. If you would like to take part in the less mobility intensive parts of a course we have several Side by Side ATV’s on site and could dedicate one to you to assist with any impediments as needed. If not you are welcome to film or document as much of the course as you would like. Following day courses our instructors will often grill at the FOB and if interested you could join them. If your brother is a shooter or has interest we would welcome him along as well.

Our civilian course calendar is available online and you are welcome to observe any of the courses listed. During the week our facility is usually occupied with our professional clients and with their approval you may observe their operations as well.

Please contact me anytime to arrange the visit and I sincerely look forward to having you on the range.

Iif you can’t see the difference between posting a comment on a blog and selling training by claiming to be a SOF veteran, then you may actually be as dumb as you come across in this comments section.

Again, compare the “instructors” at AS with the guys at Alias, Invictus, GGT, the current crew at MP Dynamics, etc.

If they actually had the qualifications they were claiming, the instructors page on AS’s website would include actual names, info, and dates.

Reply

Asymmetric Solutions August 9, 2013 at 07:31 am

Many of our instructors prefer to maintain some level on anonymity, especially those who recently left local LE SWAT units. It doesn’t take much more than a quick google search on many of them to determine who they are and that their backgrounds are fully vetted and entirely legitimate. Again- one was recently the subject of a nationally broadcast network television program.

Reply

Red Flag August 10, 2013 at 01:56 am

Anonymity is often a facade unqualified posers use to hide behind. Not saying your instructors aren’t legit, but if they are who they say they are, your website would include this actual info. Making potential customers resort to google vetting your instructors actual backgrounds isn’t very smart. And, a bunch of former white SOF SEALs and SF dudes in Missouri have zero need for anonymity unless they have something in their backgrounds or qualifications that they are trying to hide.

Maybe some of the LEOs, and that’s a huge maybe, however, associating their name and background with a training facility isn’t exactly a huge PERSEC issue.

This is what an instructor bio page should look like: http://www.magpuldynamics.com/instructors

But seriously Asymmetric Solutions this site is mostly Mike posting stuff that he thinks is stupid. People can make their own mind up and you got some free publicity out of this.

Other than that it has made for some very funny reading and none of us are above this type of team house ribbing. I think we have adequately explained our position and intelligent people can figure it out on their own.

Well you’re positing that this shoothouse and the events that took place within is unsafe or somehow extraordinary.

In order for that statement to be objective you have to have witnessed people of the same level of training that these guys were at (very very advanced according to AS) and witnessed them participating in a similar exercise. You repeat this to increase your credibility.

I think you’d lose all faith in most of our military’s very elite if you saw how their training went. Or maybe it’d open your eyes and you’d realize that there is a great bit of disparity between the what you expect things to be like vs what things really are like.

In a world at war with itself, in a society where civil discourse has ceded the field to angry invective, on an intellectual landscape where facts and reason are devoured by hyperbole and emotion, in the face of an ethical schema in which confirmation bias has become the most powerful force in the universe, we have found common ground, you and I. On one thing, at least, we can agree without equivocation or cavil:

I WAS being condescending.

Considering the Swedish IPSC chapter changed their license model for IPSC rifle 3 days after I ordered my AR lower and other bits for a competition rifle for the 2013 season – in fear and/or wristslap a few clubs – Before a major lagislation might come in effect… late 2014.. more or less banning any semiautomatic rifle that can hold external Magazines of 6 rounds or more. Thankfully I was quick enough to cancel my orders on optics and handguard, but now I have a complete lower (these being totally legal and licensefree in Sweden) collecting dust for another 15 months… Now anyone that wants a rifle licence for IPSC needs to wait 24 months from their first competition license has been paid, even for a .22lr upper for IPSC mini rifle mind you.

It could be worse, but it is pretty bad. They cannot stop illegal weapons at our border (thanks for that EU) so the squeze the normal, lawful guy that think competitions and practices with friends is fun and a great hobby..

Absolutely not. I’ve taken classes from various different trainers and I have yet to meet one with all the answers. In fact, a couple of “big name trainers” have shown me TTPs that I absolutely disagree with. However, in the context of “shoothouses”, Pat is the only one I’m aware of who has produced video showing at least one way.

Part of my issues with fools who constantly muzzle other students, is what other safety violations are they committing? It’s sort of like reading an article in a newspaper that you know is FUBAR. Ever going to trust that reporter (or paper) again?

So if the best these clowns can show is some poorly trained person wandering around pointing his bang stick at all and sundry, why would you think anything else they teach would be any better?

“. . . making them look really bad. . . ” More than that, he’s costing them money.

For one example: I have traveled lots farther than that to spend a grand on a class. And I go to several classes a year. So I’m a potential customer, except that now — based on my belief that Tiny Balls of Fear is really just an AS alter-ego — I am not. (At a time when their web page makes it clear they ar seeking to expand their civilian, non-LEO customer base.)

No great loss to them, maybe. I’m just one potential client from South Florida. Except that MANY more people read pages like this than will ever comment on them. And while not EVERYONE who reads the page will scratch AS from the list of facilities they’d pay good money to attend, plenty will — and I cannot imagine anyone reading this and thinking, “Yeah. Never heard of these guys. But this is a GREAT first impression so I’m in!” in other words, it’s a net loss.

Now, maybe the AS guys are in the business purely for shits and giggles. Maybe they are not capitalists. Maybe they live in a barter-based economy that doesn’t require currency. But assuming somebody there has some interest in making some money out of the enterprise . . . well, you get it.

Now that that is out of the way, the first one I’d like to see is that belonging to Tiny Balls of Fear. Because anyone who SO often reverts to detailed descriptions of living in Mom’s basement, playing video games and playing with toy guns sounds to me like a guy who lives in Mom’s basement, plays video games and plays with toy guns.

So how about it, Tiny Balls. You brought it up. Show us your dd-214 with your real name on it in a way that can be verified and I’ll thank you for your service. Until then . . . could you pause that game for long enough to move some clothes from the washer to the dryer? Mom would be grateful.

AS themselves have not actually posted any comments for quite a while now, I think they were smart enough to come to the party, much like Vigilant Specter has since their initial butthurt over it all. Smart enough to realize that no publicity is bad publicity, unless you have a shithead like Great Balls of Fail constantly raving like an idiot and associating himself with your group.

WOW!

I’m a veteran (not anything “high speed”) and a firearms instructor. I’ve worked with SWAT and Military (both as an instructor and as a student) I also train regularly with a group of highly skilled people that I absolutely trust with my life. Muzzle sweeping is not something I take lightly. It has never been taken lightly by anyone I’ve ever trained with. Sometimes it happens but that does NOT make it okay.

Watching a video that is supposed to be promoting a trainer (or training company) that clearly shows someone muzzle sweeping multiple people does NOT instill confidence in those running that training. It certainly does NOT make me want to spend my hard earned money training with those people.

Some people will claim it’s “big boy rules”. Well “Big Boy Rules” doesn’t mean you do unsafe shit and don’t care, it means when you fuck up you OWN it. You don’t make excuses, and you don’t get pissy with someone who calls you on it.

Firearms training is inherently dangerous for everyone involved. There is no such thing as a “safe range” but you have to conduct training as safely as possible.

Hold your fire Grady, learn to let me muzzle sweep you like you know you should
Our time is up, so very abrupt and it’s understood *ka-ching*
In your ballistic walled world that’s not a trip mine mine mine mine-ine

And the guy that says he a Navy seal or whatever contacting your “spy network” you are nothing but some kid at his moms. And the original poster of this post is a complete dumb ass too.

So you didn’t really do a search “to see what others were saying.” Instead, you did a search to find people who would say the same things you already believed, so as to pump up your confirmation bias and salve your cognitive dissonance.

So here, let me help:

You are clearly a seriously operational operator whose operations have now been operationally enhanced by your attendance at Asymmetric Solutions operations. The operative operational operations in which you operated whilst learning from the the AS cadre (operators always call instructors cadre) have no doubt honed your already-keen operational skill-set to a razors’s edge of operational readiness. Go now. Go and operate you steely-eyed, flat-bellied, high-speed, low-drag, door-kicking, trigger-pulling, life-taking, operator you. Go. Go and operate like the wind.

There. Feel better now?

I took my first class last Friday 10/4/13 at ASolutions and I couldn’t be more impressed. Gun safety was paramount – the training excellent. The video is from a different class than I took, but all the skills taught and honed were skills that may be used in real life scenarios.

To all you ass-hat haters out there – go lick the ass-end of a menstruating skunk

I am not sure who has actually taken any classes here. I took basics of tactical shooting back in April of this year. I was extremely pleased and satisfied.
It was very safe , organized , & full of information that could be used evey day. It seems like a lot of the haters are just yacking to get attention. I wonder who has actually held and fired a weapon?

After 27 years in law enforcement and retiring as a prison warden I thought I’d seen and heard it all. The ignorance displayed on this site is applalling. I am an AS customer and can attest first hand to their professionalism. You people who have no experience with AS should be ashamed of yourselves. To critique a clip ( I haven’t seen it) is one thing, to base an entire opinion on a short clip is ridiculous! These instructors are the real deal, these are not the first classes I’ve taken, but are definitely the best, safest, most professional. You guys are really a sad group- for what purpose- to raise yourself up by putting others down? Take a class and I’d be happy to listen to your opinion , but until you do or are better informed- shut the fuck up!

I have also trained at AS, both group class and private instruction. I couldn’t have asked for more relevant, combat oriented training than I received at AS. They are serious about safety and serious about training for the real world. They have created a learning environment that will test you if you take the right attitude. They are also not just civilian trainers. They have a professional training division as well.

Of course, visiting a blog and banging out sarcastic posts is a lot easier than getting off your ass and going to train with these guys. Those of us who’ve been there know what the rest of you are missing…

By the way, those of you who wanna snort and scoff at Stars Earn Stripes seem not to realize what’s important about that show. It demonstrates that Grady Powell is a skilled trainer even of celebrities with no experience, so the good news is…there may even be hope for you pinheads.

There is certainly a great deal to learn about this issue.
I like all of the points you made.

Wow……WOW!!!! Ive done some work w the AS guys, they are a top notch crew and I have the utmost respect for them. Ive never met a group of legit real workd bad asses, that are at the same time the most respectful and humble group of fellas I could ever have had the honor to know. I just stumbled across this thread while looking for some info, and to kill some time. Hoping to resume some training with them over the winter and help out the AS team in any way I can.
