Tactical Shooting Training “John Wick” Style – 1 Hero SAS Soldier’s Shotgun Kill Streak

Jeff Anderson

“Breach! Breach! Breach!”

The SAS team entered through a doorway into the courtyard in a raid on an ISIS outpost in Baghdad, assault rifles at the ready.

They were immediately met by heavily armed Jihadis… wearing suicide vests filled with plastic explosives and ball bearings.

The terrorists were about to detonate themselves, blowing the SAS team to hell…

…And the lead SAS man didn't have a rifle.

Armed only with his breaching tool – a 12-gauge shotgun – and somehow moving fast despite the weight of the GIANT BRASS BALLS he was lugging around…

…the SAS soldier raised his weapon and literally DECAPITATED three jihadis with the 12-gauge, firing as fast as John Wick on a caffeine bender.

But the fight, for this incredibly brave SAS commando, was only just starting.

This is the story of…

How A Hero SAS Soldier KILLED 5 Terrorists In 7 Seconds… With A 12-Gauge Shotgun!

Tactical Shooting Training “John Wick” Style

The SAS breach team's ears were still ringing from the blasts of the lead man's Menelli M4 Super 90.

The men they had surprised had just finished morning prayers and were loading weapons into a vehicle.

“We now think they were about to carry out an attack,” a military source told the Sun newspaper. “The terrorists were no more than a few feet away when the SAS team came face to face with them.”

That's when two more jihadis, hoping to get close enough to blow up the team, appeared from a nearby building.

Running at the breach team, their fingers on the buttons of their suicide vests, they knew they had the Brits dead to rights.

But they hadn't counted on the point man and his 12-gauge.

He raised his weapon and, faster than I can write it, fired twice more.

“One of the breach team opened fire,” said the source, describing the gunfight later. “It was a case of bang, bang, bang, then bang, bang. It was over in seven seconds.”

That's right.

The soldier took out 5 men in 7 seconds, and he did it all with the same semi-automatic shotgun that you or I could buy at the local gun store.

When more jihadis responded to the sounds of the shotgun blasts, they immediately surrendered.


Because they realized they were staring at dead men who had no heads and the SAS team was ready to back up their point man.

It's a fantastic story of our British SAS friends doing what they do well, and taking down the bad guys… but the fact that it was done with a semi-auto shotgun really caught my attention.

This is exactly the kind of gunfighting that I teach in my Extreme Close Quarters Shooting course.

Do you think that SAS point man had time to take careful aim before blasting FIVE men in SEVEN seconds?


He was focused on the threat, as his brain demanded he make fast decisions in order to survive.

He wasn't focusing on that weapon's front sight.

He was shooting at close quarters, “no more than a few feet away” from the terrorists in their suicide vests!

If you're going to survive a real gunfight at close quarters, the situation won't be quite as extreme as this…

…but it will be no less a life-or-death showdown when some scumbag is trying to shoot or stab you!

If you don't understand realistic close-quarters gunfighting principles,you’re setting yourself up for a potentially traumatic wake-up call… that could cost you your life!

I know, it sounds like a lot to take in. . . and it is.

Just be warned…

I don't follow popular opinion when it comes to firearms training so some of what you read may actually be the OPPOSITE of what you've been taught in the past.

All I ask is that you keep an open mind… and be willing to try something completely new in how you prepare for the reality of a street attack.

Now, will you really be “John Wick” by the time you're done?

I don't think anybody could promise that… but then, John Wick is only a movie.

Life-or-death gunfights are, sadly, terrifyingly real… and this course will give you the tools to survive them.

That's what we're all after, right?

MCS 275 – The Truth About Firearms Night Sights

Tactical Firearms Night Sights

If you own a firearm, for home defense or concealed carry, you've probably heard it:

“Most attacks happen in low-light environments.”

Makes sense, doesn't it?

Armed bad guys are looking for an easy surprise ambush so their targets won't fight back…

…AND they don't want anybody around, including you, to be able to identify them!

Knowing the chances are high that any attack will happen in low light, it just stands to reason you won't be as effective in defending yourself…

…Which is why you absolutely should upgrade your firearm's sights for low light.

But which should you get?

Fiber optics, or true “night sights?”

In this week's podcast episode, Modern Combat & Survival's Jeff Anderson prepares you for the roller-coaster ride of “expert” opinions when it comes to night sights… and helps you sort through it all to make the RIGHT call for your guns.

MCS 272 – The Future Of Center Axis Relock

Tactical Shooting: The Future Of Center Axis Relock (CAR)

What if there was a tactical shooting system that universally allowed you to apply the same exact principles across all weapons platforms – pistol, rifle and shotgun?

What if you could master an integrated firing method that gives you the power to transition seamlessly from one firing position to another…

…And quickly engage targets at all ranges with lightning fast speed?

And what if training in this system was so intuitive that it didn't require hours and hours of practice to master its principles…

…So you can literally become a better protector of yourself and those you love practically overnight?

If all this sounds like a dream – something that's too good to be true – I have news for you:

It's real, and it's called the Center Axis Relock system – or “CAR” for short.

CAR hit the tactical industry pretty hard, and a version of it has even been used by Keanu Reeves in the hit John Wick action film series.

But it hasn't been without its controversy over its usefulness as a tactical shooting system.

In this week's podcast episode, Modern Combat & Survival's Jeff Anderson interviews the “heir” to the Center Axis Relock System, Jeff Johnsgaard, to get to the bottom of CAR's place in our self-protection platforms today.

Point Shooting? 3 Times When You Absolutely MUST Master Aimed Fire To Survive An Attack!

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

I admit it. I talk a lot of trash about “aimed fire”.

Of course this gets me a lot of hate mail from the crusty, old, so-called “experts” out there who get their tighty-whiteys in a wad any time someone tries to slap some reality into how to train for real gunfights.

But actually, I have lot of respect for aimed fire…

…in the right circumstances!

I mean, the reality is, if you’re ambushed in a parking lot by some thug hiding behind a parked car, you’ll be lucky to even get to your gun, let alone ever use your front sight to get an “aim” on your target.

In these attacks, “point shooting” is all you’re gonna to be able to use.

But there are other very specific instances when your front sight is your best friend, and…

Here Are 3 Times When You Absolutely MUST Master “Aimed Fire” To Survive

Tactical Firearms Training: Aimed Fire Vs Point Shooting

Basically, the best time to use aimed fire instead of point shooting is when you’re not the person directly under threat.

Or… you have the time and distance to react to a threat before it’s on top of you!

Let me give you three potential scenarios where aimed fire is your best chance at survival…

1. Active Indiscriminate Shooter

You’re in a crowded area: a shopping mall, a schoolyard, a busy street.

You hear gunfire and screams, see people diving out of the way or dropping like flies.

You’re not in the immediate line of fire, and you have time to assess the threat and take the shooter out.

This is the time for aimed fire all the way.

It's the only way to get that accurate distance shot you NEED to get the job done.

2. Mentally Ill/Homeless Threat

Right now, a vast array of homeless people are “off their meds.”

This means you could easily find yourself in a situation where a disturbed, armed “street person” is threatening you from a distance.

You should feel confident in drawing, giving strong commands to “Back off!” and use your aimed fire skills for all they’re worth if your life is ACTUALLY threatened.

(That's not to say you should be roaming the streets looking for trouble from people who are down on their luck.)

It's a fact, though, that these threats might require you to respond to a credible threat to your life.

When they do, you need to be accurate with your shots.

Especially when you're out in public, you need to remember that you are responsible for EVERY round you fire.

3. Home Invasion Hostage

Your loved one has a gun to their head or a knife to their throat.

The attacker is threatening to kill them – and you believe they mean it.

This is probably THE situation all aimed-fire proponents train for.

Your wife or child’s life hangs in the balance of scumbag’s sadistic whim, and you have to take the shot.

Those are solid examples of true “aimed fire” scenarios – and I’m sure that there are more you can come up with.

But the real question isn’t whether this list is all-inclusive.

The real question is . . .

Are You Ready to Meet These Threats?

The reason I ask is because, while you can certainly get “marksmanship” training down at your local range, trying to get your 1” shot group inside that tiny circle on your paper target…

…These scenarios require REALISTIC training simulations where you’re facing either a live person or a 3-D target.

This is something I learned while conducting our stopping power analysis of over 6,000 real-world gunfights – and this is information YOU need so that you understand when aimed fire vs point shooting is appropriate.

That's the only way you will survive a REAL gunfight.
