Had a blast (pun intended) shooting with my buddy Gavin yesterday afternoon at his place. Instructed him in the "CQB" or Close Quarter Battle" drill, which he'd never done.

This is one of those "Oh Crud!" drills, intended to train the shooter for an extremely short range, violent encounter. Marksmanship doesn't really play much of a role in it. It's fast, violent, and potentially a life-saver.



He's a happy guy, just learned something new!

Earlier photo of me doing the drill at our Gun Club, photographed by my son. Was using my little Kahr 9mm that day, and it was a lot warmer!



I like teaching that drill, but it's not something I'd recommend trying to learn without competent instruction. Fairly possible to put a hole in yourself if done improperly!

Nice! I've done similar with a brother when he was learning defensive pistol. Variant I learned was a little different than the pictures you posted, but essentially the same.

More fun was setting up a glass house with the floor plan of his rental and putting him in various invasion scenarios. I stood parallel to the house and fired my pistol into the berm as the "go" signal. His job was to engage the paper targets until I stopped shooting. It added a bit of no-s**t to the training, while maintaining safety. It also helped me touch on topics such as moving to cover, fatal funnel, etc.

It was a learning experience for both of us, and I think his biggest takeaway was that you shouldn't wait until you hear gunfire to load your long gun.

*Just to avoid confusion, at no point were either of us flagging the other, and neither of us was firing in an "up range" direction. Yes, that limited where I could place targets, but it wasn't a 360 range anyway.

Well, if it didn't, he'd likely get a meal!

Yup, saw the aftermath of a guy shot by a weapon on "safe".

John,

The idea of the drill is to simulate fending off an attacker at very close range, giving you time and or space to draw a weapon. I don't know why this would not apply to a mountain lion, though I don't know if this technique would need to be modified. I suspect it would, since I don't think a lion would attack in the same way a human would, but I simply don't have the knowledge base.
