Setting the Standard – Patrolling is not Combat Shooting | Grounded Curiosity

By The Cove November 7, 2019

"If you are someone that applies the Combat Shooting methodology to your patrolling technique, you are unlikely to be seeking to close with the enemy, to kill or capture. On the contrary, you are going to look down at the ground or away from where your weapon is directed". 

In his post, Setting the Standard – Patrolling is not Combat Shooting! via Grounded Curiosity, Brandon Carey has identified and provided solutions to what he believes is a big gap in our current training: the lack of patrolling doctrine. An excellent article relevant to all soldiers, regardless of trade or Corps.
