UF Pro’s Guide to Tactical Shooting: Two Man Fire-Team Tactics.
Tactical Shooting Drill No. 2: Team Shooting. In this scenario, you’ll learn how to react when ambushed and how you and a teammate can work your way out of it.
Key Takeaway Points: Engage the enemy by executing a “peel” manoeuvre while simultaneously manoeuvring out of harm’s way. Never manoeuvre beyond the point where you lose the ability to protect your teammate and sustain a fusillade (safety, steady rate of fire, and distance travelled are equally important).
Always keep your rifle at a “high-ready” position while you’re on the move. Maintain clear communication with your teammate at all times (even while behind cover)—crucially important.
