    I trained at the Boeing facility about 4 years ago. I trained also at the Surefire Institute with its $300 flashlights. I remember shooting the Aussie instructor and shaking his world in the last room at Surefire. The instructors knew the darkened structure extremely well and could walk through it without opening their eyes. We were taught working the angles with simunitions. I shook the guy up by lying prone on the floor away from the entrance, but directly in line. If he had tossed in a lit led light, he would never have been shot. Instead he was using a handheld $300 light! Moral-listen, think.

    When I did Boeing, the ceilings were double high. I called it Stalingrad because we fought dirty, room to room, behind furniture, up on gantries and so forth. I was called down for "cheating" because I tossed leds into rooms under partitions - and the instructor observed and said it was not cheating and everyone should do it.

    private email. I just relate my experience. I was trained. I did the takedowns in the Boeing Aircraft Plant in Long Beach, CA. We were encouraged to try what worked and what didn't work and discuss. I just pass along information and people can reject it, investigate, do nothing. Doesn't matter to me. If something works for you, stick with it.

    Always think. I was also trained in dynamic entries. I thought the concept was generally not one that I would want to do for real. A classmate and the following law officer were killed doing a dynamic entry as trained.

    There is no "set" standard for where stuff goes, it really is operator preference in most places.

    In garrison, some units have a mandated layout, but I don't know that.

    In general, I try to keep my spare rifle mags, as close to my left side as possible, to make drawing them with my left hand (I'm a righty) as easy and fast as I can.

    The only fixed item my unit has, is on our ground armor, we always located our IFAK's as the last pouch on the off hand side, so that you could always find someone's if they'd been hit.

    AK_Stck-I have pm'd you in the past with some UH-60 questions. I was wondering if you had any photos or guidance how to set up the IOTV vest with all of the pouches, med kit, etc.?

    I used to be a flight paramedic in Alaska. It appears that you fly? I'm just curious as I worked for Aeromed for 4 years (called Lifemed Alaska now).
