A traffic ticket is formal recognition of a lapse in situational awareness.
Ditto on taking a class in Seattle. I'll be moving out there this summer. So, George, there's at least two students for ya in the PNW...
And thanks for this post. We have Navy Doctors (actual docs, not just Corpsmen) come out and teach a human physiology course as part of our green-belt courses. It's just one more piece of "intel" to help you plan your attack and train to attack the better targets.
Additionally, when we do our combative shooting drills, there are three areas on the B-27 target that count as a hit. Pelvic girdle, COM and T-box (a t-shaped area of the face including the eyes and a center line below them, representing the core of the CNS). Any shot on the silhouette gets a point, but those count for either disabling or killing shots. Keep in mind, as our resident medic pointed out, there are plenty of BGs in Iraq with shattered pelvises who were still capable of firing rounds back at us.
And of course, our machine-gunning techniques include "walking the rounds on target". This results in the fabled zipper/stitching. No reason the same technique can't be applied with a pistol in CQB. Good thoughts. Thanks for keeping us thinking.
