Armchair quarterbacking- I'm guilty of doing it all the time. I comment on things I know about but have [b]NO[/b] experience in the matter. Today, I got myself shot up a few times. I don't think I was directly responsible though for the simulated deaths of others on my team. This week I am attending an Engagement Tactics course. We are using simunition. It's pretty cool. Actually it is extremely cool. After a few days of classroom time, we headed out to start engaging the threats, indoors and outdoors. FUN FUN FUN!! I'm having a hard time composing what I'd like to say here because I'm still thinking about what has surpassed this day. I learned that controlling your fire is [b]critical[/b]! YOU WILL DIE if you run out of ammo in a fire fight..(NO SH*T, right?). I keep thinking of the mistakes my team made today and what we could of done to turn the tide for our side. It [b]looks[/b] easy on T.V. doesn't it? What do they call these guys "trained professionals", what I felt like today a few times was a "trained idiot". There is so much that involves this type of work - clearing rooms/spaces and staying alive. Also I would highly recommend learning to change magazines in TOTAL darkness.
