Everything you needed to know about shooting the 1911.
Military handgun training was pretty much the same as in the video until the 1911 was phased out in the 1980s. Handgun training in both police and military units started to change with the convergence of ideas from spec ops units like the SAS (which was THE spec ops unit after the 1980 Iranian embassy operation) and similar elite police units, like LAPD SWAT.
Those .45 acp tracer rounds are pretty cool. Not sure what they do to the bore because I never shot a tracer out of a handgun.
Very cool video, thanks for posting!
3:05 mark. Pistols pointed at each other. LoL
Off hand cupped under the magazine. No no.
I'm not moving to the cup and saucer anytime soon, but I will say whoever he is, the Captain can shoot, especially with GI sites. I saw a WW1 video that was even more humorous. This old Sarge was in the combat crouch with the pistol at the hip, hopping and turning. We've come a long way.
He sure can. Watching that video makes me wonder which of our present "must-do" techniques are going to be considered out of style in a few years. When you come down to it, there are only a few ways to physically hold a handgun and position your body, so maybe the mental aspects (such as focusing on that front sight), which don't seem to vary over the years, are more important.
The old masters figured most of it out. Wild Bill once stated he never shot the same man twice. He placed a premium on shot placement. People seem to need to reinvent the wheel when often enough we just need to listen to our elders.
Love seeing old videos like this
I wonder if any fires were ever started by use of tracer bullets in those wooden Berlin/Tokyo buildings....
Some folks were ahead of their time.
Here's an interesting film of what may be the first "shoot-house" - the famous "House of Horrors". To contemporary eyes it may look silly, but the roots of modern tactical training are found here.
Great Video really cool .. I like how they say it light weight .. but some people today would make you think it weighs a ton .. course compared to a m1 or Tommy gun it was light weight
Too many people today are soft candyasses.
Very cool HOH video!
