Testosterone-Drenched Masochistic Firearms Training

Punches, jostles, shuffling, and yelling oh my:

0:00 to 0:43 – Having a dude homoerotically punk / yell at you while you’re getting your heart rate up is so crucial to the overall goal over lowering your operational tier.

0:43 – Now we are in deep in robot maneuver central.  Seriously that shuffle.  *facepalm*

1:15 – Holy ok now we are back into stomach punches, kidney punches, and more yelling.

1:58 – Ok that clenched ass cheek shuffle has to be a joke.  Did he poop his pants or something?  Oh the “instructor” even threw in a jostle shortly after… lucky us!

A lot more of the same… punches, jostles, shuffling, and yelling.

Keanu-WoahWell at least not ALL the stupidity to do with firearms is coming from Texas this week (scroll back through the last couple days posts you don’t get that reference). :P

Tactical Combat Academy is based out of Slovakia.  They actually have some really cool videos (nice production value) on their YouTube Page.  A lot of serious shit going down engaging targets from a vehicle.  TCA also has a facebook page also you can check out.

Thoughts?

That’s some of the finest yelling, clumsy exercise and awkward shuffle-shooting I’ve ever seen. 11/10 clearly tier -99 would beach assault hell with.

Black Week of Jostling?

Seems like good training to me. They are probably not training to run idpa competitions. Isn’t this pretty similar to most spec ops type training? If I was purposefully going into harm’s way, I’d want to have some training like that.

Why? Because when you are being shot at the best approach is to slowly lurch around like a retarded bird, while focusing on a target, and then shoot while standing still in the middle of nowhere?

Wouldn’t you actually want to learn something, like, go for cover until you can assess the nature and direction of the gun fire while coordinating with your buddies and taking care of any of the wounded? Or if you can’t quickly get cover learn how to estimate the direction of fire quickly so your team can lay down some supressing fire so hopefully you can get the fuck out of there as quickly as possible?

To me it looks like extraordinarally poor training for anything remotely ‘spec ops’-ish.

The PT stuff isn’t _terrible_. But if you are going to do that you are going to need to have some targets that move around or pop up or something like that. It’s worthless when you have all the time in the world to stare at your target.

The PT part is really good stuff. Muscle failure and sucking wind is a pretty decent combat simulator. I was never jostled, nor have I ever heard of anyone being jostled in combat, That said, I was only oh-so-basic infantry. This jostling thing is going to be gone in six months, just like last year’s “tactical pooping stance”, and the 2007-08 “charlie’s angels reload”. And I’m still not impressed by shooting at five big steps from your man-sized target. But I know that’s because I’m now a “gamer”, and shooting 6″ plates from 25 yards as fast as possible can’t possibly translate into a useful real-world skill. Instead, blast away from eleven feet and be jostled.

folks, an elevated heart rate does NOT equal shit loads of adrenaline dumped suddenly into your system making you shake like nobody’s business…… One of those things makes shooting slightly more difficult, the other makes it nearly impossible….. One of those things is easy to simulate, the other requires paramedic friends or a couple of your kid’s epi pens strategically placed….. A big adrenaline dump is pretty taxing on your body…. and as such, your body is pretty good about not letting you fake that one…..

This is why I only train for my tier -2 operations while high on methamphetamine. Ain’t nothing like running through an IDPA stage while sweating bullets, grinding my teeth with no control, and having imaginary pink ants crawl under my skin. Man up and ride the snake, son, gotta get that adrenaline level up to REALLY operate.

Here we have a Sgt yelling himself hoarse within 2 minutes while the shooter carefully annihilates stationary paper targets at point blank.

I think there would be more value in having a gauntlet to run through (with running, climbing, crawling, and targets on the left and right, etc.). Stress could be simulated by airsoft or paintball shooters pelting you every 15 seconds or so. Could also add in loud sounds (air horns, for example) to startle you.
