That actually HIT your target.

I do it on a civilian range with fig 11's… the range officer hates it!

Point gun. BANGBANG! They just took two rounds in rapid succession. Double-tap.

Double tap....two shots fired in rapid succession...the concept is to have an immediate follow up shot before your target moves (much). Worst case scenerio..you double you chances of hitting the target....best case...two shots center mass=twice as much stopping power. The (arguable) most important thing to a defensive shoot is to stop the threat as quickly as possible....the more shots you can place on target as fast as you can, the better your chances of surviving a shootout become. It wont be like in the movies.....you shoot someone, they dont just drop and die....they will be able to shoot back...and are still dangerous....you will want to practice the doubletap until it becomes the primary instinct everytime you draw.

Nooooo, sloppy seconds is when the second guy WAITS to tap it. The double tap is when they both hit it at the same time. [Note: there are quite a few varieties of the latter]

Double tap or hammer=two fast shots with only 1 sight picture. The shots will typically be several inches apart. This has the added benefit of causing the fluid shock waves to crash into each other and create more damage. Sort of like dropping 2 stones into a pond a few inches apart. These should usually be done at closer ranges.


Controlled Pair. 2 shots in rapid succession, but with a seperate sight picture for each shot. For longer distances that the DT.

That is typically trained as a three shot manuever...doubletap centermass followed with an aimed headshot...not sure if it has an official name...I would just call it neutralizing a threat.

I believe it's because some of the locals were so high in stuff that the common 2 COM didn't really stop them, just made them stop for a brief moment for the 3rd (and final) shot.

Double Tap - To re-engage and fire into a target that was previously engaged and shot whether it be in defensive or offensive operations. It has nothing to do with the amount or placement of rounds to the target.

Example -
-Infantry Company,Platoon, squad assaults (insert objective here- building, hill,etc.).
-As element approaches objective they engage and nuetralize targets while being supported by support fire.
-When element is in/on obj. they re-engage, "double tap", any targets that have already been engaged and or nuetralized as they pass by the targets. This ensures they can commit no further action to attacking force.
- Once a member has passed by a target they may not re-engage that target unless target presents a threat. They must continue on to the Limit of Advance(LOA) engaing targets in front of them. Attacking force may not go back thru the obective to engage downed targets.

That is a Double Tap

I use the terms "hammer", "controlled pair" and "hammerhead or Mozambique/failure drill".

I never use double tap. I think its inaccurate because it makes no distinction between two sight pictures and two shots or three and two shots.

You just Double Tapped that one in the head. That is word for word how we trained our soldiers to take and secure the objective and let the medics and higher deal with whats left on the obj.
