John Chapman, Director of Training at LMS Defense, recommends using a .22 Long Rifle dedicated long gun such as the S&W M&P15-22 because it manipulates exactly like a true M4. An M&P15-22 is used here to practice manipulations including loading/reloading. Rifle training drills are also performed that take advantage of the strengths of the .22 LR system.
Rob Pincus explains the advantages of a muzzle low ready position, especially in an extreme close quarters situation. The low ready position allows for more efficiency and consistency when moving into a shooting position and for dramatically more control if your rifle is ever grabbed by an attacker.Watch Now >>
