Special Ops Shooting Tests CTEs | Tactical Rifleman
Tactical Rifleman


Published on Aug 17, 2018
Critical Task Evaluations (Live 17 SEP 2018)
Combat Drills used by most operators as Standard Critical Task Evaluations (CTEs)
Conducted from 5-8 meters (varies by SOF Unit)

Notes from Coach: Weapons Handling is the secret to not being just a good shooter, but a great shooter. Being efficient, proficient and smooth in how you operate and manipulate your weapons is something that a trained instructor can see from a distance. Just like a major league pitcher can watch a ball game and tell the guy on the mound has been in the league for years, or is a guy that just came up from the minors.

Everything is fundamentals. I teach the same things in much the same way whether it’s to a twelve year old kid, a housewife, a young marine or an experienced member of a national asset special operations unit. It’s Fundamentals first. And that’s weapons handling.

These Squadron quals are a mixture of Team Six and Delta quals that served as standards for them at one of the finest instruction facilities in the US that you have never heard of. I use the SEAL time standard which is slightly faster but the longer distances that SFOD-D fires from. (Well that sucks, you are thinking, right? Exactly.)

Most of my cadet team members can pass these by the end of the first semester of their sophomore year. It’s a primary reason we are undefeated by our Service Academy competition for the last four years. At 51, I can still pass. Younger guys with skill can crush these standards. If you warm up for an hour, a lot of folks can pass. But you dont get to warm up in the real world. So these are a baseline for performance that sets a standard and a starting point to improve upon.

Presentation from the holster, reloads, presentation with rifle from various readys, multiple target engagement, footwork...it’s all there. Oh and accuracy, got to do that too. There is a specific target that these quals should be fired on, the one we are using in the video is not it. Use a 6 inch circle and you will be fine.

Last thing. These are skill tests. They are testing and evaluating what you have programmed into muscle memory, and they demonstrate where you need to focus your training. They should fired cold, with no warm up. The day we filmed these was the day after Karl and I had finished teaching a class at T1G. I get to the range drinking coffee on my tailgate watching the film guys set up, not knowing what Sgt Maj Evil Genius has planned for the day. He walks over and says “hey man, you got your rifle today?” Yeah. “Cool! Stuff some mags, you are shooting your Squadron quals on camera in five.” What’s that saying the SEALs have? The easy day was yesterday?

Enjoy the video.

How to Shoot While Moving | Special Forces Fundamentals | Tactical Rifleman
Tactical Rifleman


Published on Aug 24, 2018
Once we have a good grasp of the shooting fundamentals and safe manipulation of weapons, we need to introduce other complexities into our training. Moving is not only adding complexity, it is adding a necessary ingredient for survival! We cannot sit still and hope for the best when someone is sending bullets our way. Even if you never trained a day in your life, I guarantee that you will move in some manner if you hear the zing of a bullet by your head. Since that is true, we should deliberately train to move in a fashion that sets us up for success don’t you think? We want to move aggressively and also employ our weapon system accurately so we must have a method that allows for a steady sight picture. That is what we show here. Heel to toe, knees bent for shock absorber support, upper body stays as level as possible. Have fun and be safe!

Pistol fighting off your back | Tactical Rifleman
Tactical Rifleman


Published on Sep 7, 2018
Many people never learn to shoot from “less then ideal” positions. In real life, I can think several reasons that would put me on my back. Here is one method that I use for getting back up. Post one foot, lay the other flat. Post the opposite side hand and swing your flat leg through to the knee (ensure the knee is placed wide from the other foot so it gives you a wide base). You will end up in a split squat or lunge position and you simply stand from there.
I prefer this method which differs from the rolling up on the hip method that allows you to keep both hands on your weapon. That method is much harder for some body types and requires some strength. Also, that method will not work in a fighting situation with someone trying to get on top of you. The method I show works for gun fighting or hand fighting and is tried and true. If you have a toddler, sit them on their butt and watch how they get up. It will be similar to what I show here. Interesting isn’t it?

We know TFB readers and viewers have watched a John Wick film and thought, "dang, I wish I could shoot like that." Fortunately, James Reeves has your back: James and the TFB crew went out to Taran Tactical Innovations to meet and train with living legend Taran Butler - the man who trained Keanu Reeves for his role in the John Wick series of films. And while normally you'd have to fly out to Los Angeles, star in a movie, and get your studio to bankroll your training with Taran, TFBTV and Taran Tactical are teaming up to show you how to shoot like your favorite silver screen hitman for absolutely free. Save your gold tokens for ammo.

NAVY SEAL Top 3 Shooting Drills | Tactical Rifleman
Tactical Rifleman


Published on Oct 12, 2018
Ok Tactical Rifleman Nation, this week I am giving my loyal viewers my Top 3 shooting drills. As we all know, shooting drills can be anywhere from super basic to ultra-complex and everything in between. Throughout my career I have honed my rifleman skills utilizing a variety of these drills. In the Teams, I would say we train both for marksmanship and instinctive fire. The 3 drills I chose are essentially a hybrid of those disciplines. I believe that zero time is ever wasted training and constantly revisiting fundamentals. Additionally, a slow and steady evolution in your shooting speed is also a must. These drills are perfect if you have confined range space but unfortunately, I don’t see them being allowed in an indoor facility.

I am sure these drills are nothing my advanced marksman viewers have seen as my intention is also to reiterate to my novice shooters that there is nothing wrong with mastering the basics. On the Tactical Rifleman Team, there are hundreds of years of experience and just as many varieties of shooting drills to keep clients busy for days! But rest assured, the basics will always be revisited. Pro Tip - Always go as fast as you are able while keeping a good sight picture (my sight picture has always been lower abdomen in the case some insurgent is wearing a vest or AK mag holder and lower R or L neck area in the subclavian nerve bundle). This area right near the jugular vein is deadly and a shit show to repair in the unlikely event the victim survives. I am never opposed to a good head shot and will definitely put one there too if the savage needs more love!

I hope you enjoy the video and I look forward to your comments.

-Jason

Close Quarters Battle | Use of Barricades | Tactical Rifleman
Tactical Rifleman


Published on Dec 7, 2018
You best believe that cover from incoming gun fire will be your best friend in that moment. Having a solid obstacle between you and a would be killer is a blessing in itself, but knowing how to properly use that cover is just as important.
Think about this. If someone is trying to kill you with a gun and you happen to find yourself a nice piece of wall to hunker behind, how long can you just lay low back there? If you can’t effectively bring the fight back to the killer by having a good shooting position, what is keeping them from maneuvering closer to you so that they can effectively end your life?
You hear me (Zee) say that the rifle is really your best source of cover. This is what I mean. The wall keeps you safe temporarily but with no resistance otherwise, the bad guys can potentially close with you and negate whatever safety the wall provides.
In short, GET YOUR GUN UP AND INTO THE FIGHT EFFECTIVELY, despite the quality of cover you have even.
As long as you have a reliable gun and the bullets to feed it, you have a source of cover (cover fire). Now, I said you have a “source of cover”, but can you properly use it? That is where the training comes in. WHAT ARE YOU CAPABLE OF?
Let’s figure out our limitations. Hit up the TACTICAL RIFLEMAN website to find some training courses and come train with myself, Karl, and the rest of the crew.
Be a capable citizen, not a liability.

How To Control Rifle Recoil
T.REX ARMS

Lucas Botkin goes over the basic principles of recoil control with long guns. It's pretty simple stuff and there's no reason to over-complicate it.
