I know covid has crushed a lot of training but it’s important to get things back on track when possible.
Our personal goal is not to be Seal Team 6 but to be able to move, shoot and communicate without harm to one another. I’d love to be able to be tier 1 but the truth is we won’t ever be. We are too diverse and by diverse I mean old, inexperienced, fat etc. Gotta be real.
As things open back up I hope to get us into a class. The way ammo is we are looking hard at some airsoft courses. In the meantime it’s home practice.
Y’all got any thoughts or plans?

That corner standing and shooting from concealment is going to kill alot of people.as they dont get its concealment not cover in many building in north America… drywall insulation and wood 2×4 will not stop a pistol round let alone rifle.
E is good over medium terrain but if in wreckage … you wont be able to use that formation will have to modify the formation to a square and have two facing back leap frogging backwards turned the direction of travel while other covers retreat slowing the front two . Dangerous time if you get separated or too far apart .
Also this assumes each person is equally skilled and equipped… this will not be most people’s situation in shft.
If this is in dark with no force multipliers do you have a way to communicate without noise? Hand signals a no go because of light discipline.
Also if going into a enemy potential deadly prepared ground who saps if required? If one person in team injured who takes care of that? And how?

Even if the restrictions were lifted tomorrow, outdoor conditions prevent it (it is currently -7).

Lol crow bar … we train till -30c after that you cant fight effectively as you cant draw a deep breath without coughing fits.
Having to shoot with parka winter gear and gloves adds a while new level of things to learn…. have huge respect for Simo Hayha. Moving on skis and killing that many russians in those conditions only to lose your home anyways…… I honestly think men of that level of toughness are very rare today…. even laying still in a hide in winter without showing up on thermal is a tough one let alone no snow dust clouds when you shoot. To how to not have your breath fog give you away.

Yeah, but I am the only one crazy enough to still go out and take the dogs for a walk/snowshoe when it is in the teens.
Right about training in adverse conditions and weather.
I have that book, The White Sniper: Simo Häyhä
