    I got bored shooting paper and steel
    So I put up some barriers and started doing some run and gun and shooting from cover, kneeling, prone and some unconventional positions like inverse prone(laying on your back)

    Running and then trying to shoot with your elevated heartbeat is a good skill to have. I'm 50 but I'm in excellent shape since I do weights and cardio 5 days a week.

    I have not done true force on force since my time I the military.

    Yeah I've been a desk jockey for the last 15yrs & let my self go....not fat, I still happen to weigh what I did when I got out of boot camp in 93'....160lbs...lol.

    I used to play tournament paintball ...lots of running & gunning drills, back then I was in a lot better shape than I am now.

    There's always a way to improve yourself unless you just give up or die.

    I’m jaded; I had the opportunity to do FoF/MOUT/u name it on Ft Carson with SFG instructors/ranges.

    I wouldn’t participate in any ‘public’ FoF training; too many unknowns for my blood.

    TJ, few people have the opportunity to train with SF operators so think about it for a sec with an open mind...

    If the instructor has the creds, the training would be good for folks that haven’t worn a uniform. Even a casual shooter/homeowner that’s interested in marksmenship would benefit from FOF drills as opposed to punching paper.

    Shooting isn’t easy under stress, and it sure as hell ain’t easy when being shot at. Acquiring useful skills in training scenarios instead of self taught bad habits would pay dividends for the uninitiated.

    Under the watchful eye of a knowledgeable instructor and in conjunction with a good debrief, FOF is excellent. If time allows video for tne debreif is good.
