I recently ran into a thread on here with a gun-fu video clip. A debate ensued (which I don't want to re-open) about the use of a pistol and CQC/CQB applications. I find this a particularly interesting topic at the contact manipulation stage. I was taught to use position "SUL" as it is easy to defend from, fast into action, and allows movement in a group without lasering others or yourself. Here are some clips featuring Gabe Suarez (if you aren't on warrior talk go check it out, and if you are looking for some weekend courses, Gabes are great) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ykmchwOgqE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c06mH6x2Ntc Also, I haven't ever done any training with the C.A.R guys, but I think Paul Castle has some interesting ideas. His system (Center Axis Relock) isn't without its criticisms, but interesting for sure. http://www.sabretactical.com/CAR/car.html http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDYBcys0aL4&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SASDcZFCXzQ&feature=related Curious as to your thoughts and I thought you all might enjoy.
