    This got me looking at other bad trainers on youtube and there are even more of these jaw dropping drills on there I am having issues posting videos from tap but it isn't hard to find good way to thin out idiots

    That broke every rule in the book, and who in their right mind is going to walk in front of pistol fire?
    1. I finished reading Blackhawk Down, the book, and it was very good. 2. I finished reading The Hunger Games, and it is wilder than the movie is.
    3. I finished Lone Survivor on CD, and I watched the movie, and the book is better. Everybody on that Team should have gotten the Medal Of Honor, but only one man lived. So there were no witnesses.[March 14, 2019]

    Only watched the first one, but can't say I see anything wrong with the drill except the level of confidence of those shown is not up to the task.

    Anyone know how to acclimate to shooting past their teammates?

    You just saw it. You do it.

    Of course there should be weeks of drilling together dry fire then to sims then live and unless you are going through the door together there is no point it doing it, but the drill has its place, just not with those obvious newbs.

    And not in a class that is not a team.

    Dave Harrington ran a similar drill in a carbine class I took. My buddy and I were pretty nervous about it, but i was always the back line, otherwise I would have sat out. We had some real keyboard commandoes in that class.

    I'm sitting here waiting to see what was gonna happen and who was going to go first.

    I'd have to guess the new guy was going for a grand entrance as the odd man out with a kicker of devils advocate. Maybe?
