Re: AAR Redback One’s Advanced Weapons Manipulation, King County, Wash. 11-12 July 2014

Bug Stomper ·
Good question, FireGuy ! The big pro to a front-mounted dump pouch is that you don't reach out of your way -- to your side or all the way behind you -- to ditch your magazine. Instead your hand goes pretty much where it's going anyway, i.e., your front-mounted magazine pouches. In the case of a tactical reload, it's a bit faster than reorienting the partial magazine and replacing it in the far magazine pouch. It took precious extra time to execute that maneuver during the drill mentioned...

In response to a private message from a friend who couldn't access a hyperlink above, the shoulder bump is a method of bilateral carbine shooting in which neither the weapon nor support hand leaves the gun. Rather, the shooter just bumps the stock from one shoulder to the other. Pro: It's fast, simple and your hands never leave fire control. Con: It's not very stable for long range engagements or shooting on the move. Plus I always have to switch my selector to fire when I initiated a...

I have a few questions. When do you put empty mags in the dump pouch? during a fast reload? don't you throw empty mags to the ground? do you have spare loose ammo with you to fill empty mags later? I guess empty mags are useless unless you prevail, so if you are there after the engagement (i.e. you are winning the fight) and you have the chance you will pick up empty mags from the ground to return them to Logistics guys or to fill them if you have spare ammo (maybe a chance if you have a...

Re ready positions, do you use just high ready or there is a time for low ready and a time for high ready? do you use the same with pistol than with rifle? What about high port, full sabrina, or whatever you want to call it to having muzzle up with rifle or handgun almost vertical? Just asking because some guys use that here when in the stack if you are not the leading guy.

generally speaking there is enough time during land warfare or urban operations to take cover and stow an empty into your dump pouch. This is normally because you would be attacking the enemy with a numerically superior force and you weapon may only represent a small percentage of the overall firepower of the force element. I have on several occasions carried loose ammunition in zip lock bags in my go-bag/ assault pack in case we got caught on an objective longer than anticipated and...

Great AAR on LMS and RB1. Thank you. In LMS you used PWS, but in RB1 you used a suppressed LWRC. Why the change? I'm asking because I use a suppressed PWS Mod 1 and love the weight and long stroke design. Lately I've been looking at LWRC because it has the ambi controls and an easier to quickly adjust gas block which I see as a plus with QD suppressors. Thoughts?

You're welcome, Bluemonday . And thank you for choosing my topic for your first reply on Lightfighter! You guessed my answer, bro. I loved my PWS, but I primarily shoot carbines left-handed. So shooting with my quick-detach Surefire MINI suppressor -- but without an adjustable gas bock -- choked me out. Seriously. Within a round or two. There is no such trouble with the proper setting on my LWRC IC-Enhanced . None of the M4 carbines that SOCOM ever issued me were ambidextrous, so I was...

Thanks, Bill. You make a lot of good points too. Again, I don't plan on changing the way I do tactical reloads either. The dump pouch under the front magazine pouches just keeps another door open. The Operator Readiness Test does indeed cover a lot of bases. My only beef with it is that you've got to rush your pistol back to the holster. No matter how anyone feels about searching and assessing, I couldn't bring myself to race to the holster -- and I can live with the time penalty. Instead,...

Postion of the dump pouch. The dump pouch is not primarily used during the sequence of performing a tactical reload. It can be used but when time permits, the partial magazine should be placed back...

I'm nobody special, but I have contemplated "speed holstering" of late too. Sometimes at our tactical team training we do pistol dry fire, and it inherently turns into a game of "how fast can we get XX reps in". Stupid, I know. I hated hate hate hated how some people speed holster so they can prep for the next "threat!" or "gun!" call. I'd barely get the hood back up on my holster and they'd be calling the next rep. Thinking about it from a police officer's view, what if I've got my pistol...

Good stuff. Jason, A question reference tactical reloads and placement of: What are you guys doing with multiple partial magazines? Are you able to designate which magazine has more rounds and bump them accordingly while working in a CQB environment? Our TACSOP was partial magazines in dump pouches, and consolidate ammunition during Re-Org. While this ensured you never reloaded with a partial magazine when you needed a full magazine, drawback to this was a mixed bag of partial magazines if...

Mick, It really depends upon the mission at hand as that will drive equipment needs and can for the most part predict time on target. The force protection assets that have been assigned to the task may also play a part with regards to equipment and ammunition carried by each individual. Depending on what Unit you are with may dictate personal equipment and load out. I see a lot of people running with about 4 mags, three on the man and one on the gun for in and out jobs.
