I understand it's a military acronym for clearing jams in an m-16, is it applicable to the ar-15 and if so, what does it stand for? I figured I'd find it in a search, but no luck. thanks for any help. Kyle

Thanks BH1, I think that's applicable to an ar-15. As for Brass, I've never heard of it, what is it?

B.R.A.S.S. Breathe Relax Aim (focusing on the front sight) Slack (take up the "slack", on a 2-stage trigger) Squeeze (as opposed to "pull") I've only heard this used in target shooting--seems like it wouldn't apply, or would be damn hard to practice in a combat situation... HTH [sniper]

I don't know about that, but Drill Instructor Sergeant Warren seemed to believe it was applicable to all forms of shooting. L M GAS???

Practice it before the shooting starts. Do it when it does.
