Firearms tactics

Postby D-M » Sun 11 Sep 2016 00:26

Since we 've got real warriors and gun experts here, I was wondering...

Is this a legit anti-air tactic or just the bullshit machine at work ?

It's kinda legit. It's not that effective but the relevant US FM has instructions on how to 'effectively' shoot at helicopters and even jets.

Well I get the principle but question the execution. Using the sling to have an additional point of stability is well established. Professional shooters swear by it.

HOWEVER, why use the leg when tying it to the arm works better? Also they need to tighten those slings or a leg will be shot off.

Could be a real thing though. There have certainly been some strange infantry AA techniques out there.

Was that supposed to be a 700m shot at the end of the video?

And the IRGC was stubborn enough to do it 1982 ( or now ) rather than give ground, a bit younger based on the pictures but that's about it.

I saw a lot of them struggling to shoulder the weapon while shooting. I'd rather have my rifle shouldered with the strap wrapped around my arm.

I love the RPG gunner who is standing up and aiming, has a rocket detonate maybe 5-10 feet away from him, and isn't even phased.
