I do video sometimes to get frames from to use in books and articles. These clips are in support of Volume 3 of the Gunfighting, and Other Thoughts about Doing Violence series. These are demonstrations of simple standing and movement drills that are mainly designed to work on shoulder transfers of the rifle.
Nice job old friend!
Only suggestion would be to show why we practice firing from both shoulders...maybe instead of running and gunning, show firing from both sides of cover.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.
This ^^^..maybe instead of running and gunning, show firing from both sides of cover.

This worn-out old dog ain't moving anymore. I'll have to stand my ground right where I'm at. You youngsters can run & gun while I'm drawing a bead.

Nice job. Thank you for posting.
I Learned that in a Mike Pannone class.
We did not fire on the shoulder switch however. Waited until the hands were positioned. I would argue that one would really not want to try a switch until the theoretical threat was low ergo no need to fire until your hands are positioned.
When I did get to go to the range to practice, we (group of us) would do drills like that from behind cover.
It disturbed me greatly when a buddy of mine in the NG had come over to show off his newly acquired Spikes, and the support side shooting, malfunction clearing, unconventional shooting positions, and a few other relatively simple things had never been taught to them - and his squad was to be deployed w/i a month to Astan. He even questioned the need for support side shooting until I had him stand on the left side of the jeep in the garage and sight down the side for a target (with 1/3 of his body hanging out) then made him do it again support side. Vehicles, buildings, urban fighting....how much of a target do you want your enemy to have?
