Basic Fighting Positions
 
Here's some pictures of some basic fighting/ready positions. I hope it provides everyone here with a good visual to study if needed.

Hope you all can use this to better your own skills. At least, I hope you can take these and modify them to your situation and needs.

Nice tactical pictures SGT. I teach all the same moves in my CQC classes. They all require some live fire practice to be and stay proficient.

What would have been nice though, was that all the times that I have been in those positions, whether in past military conflicts or teaching, I was on a damn carpet instead the ground. Ha, Ha.

Great pics Sarge - That gun almost looks to small for your hands in a couple of those shots.

Time to get a full sized 1911. :D

Sounds like a good plan.


Would anyone like to donate to the "SGT-MILLER needs a full size 1911" fund?

:D

Personally, I think it's bad ass you posted training pics using your Hi-Point! There are too many "elitist" that would frown on that, but I encourage it!

The cool thing about Hi Points are they are inexpensive, but just as reliable (if not more so) than their expensive counterparts. Don't let anybody give you $hit about using a Hi-Point. It'll keep up!

...I'll own a Hi-Point some day.

I am a firm believer of learning to defend with what you have, not with what you wish you have.

Thanks for the compliment. :)

Affirmative, I am a firm believer in that as well.

Keep up the good work SGT, most people would have to pay to get the valuable information and instructions you are putting out here and I hope people will take advantage of your dedicated real world training tips and videos and be appreciative of your selfless time and dedication you give in their making. You are a great example of leadership and a dedicated, proud and responsible gun owner. HOOOAHH!!

And brother, you are a lot more photogenic than I. :D

Good stuff. Do you have anything on close combat with a knife?
