Next week I'm supposed to take a new M9 course. The new protocol consists of all shots fired in 3 rd strings, 2 to the chest, one to the head. This is done at the 7, 15, and 25yd lines, reseting to double action after each string. I'm not a handgun instructor, much less a military or tactical instructor, But this really smells like some idiot higher up heard or read the buzz phrase "2 to the chest, 1 to the head" and thought it sounded cool. I have always thought of the tactic in question as an advanced technique, not a gimmick for people who shoot once every 1-3 years. I also understood it to be a close range tactic, definately not one suited for engaging a potentially moving target in combat at 25 yds. Even 15 is questionable outside of range conditions. As Anthony said, somebody seems to have a case of "when do we jump out of the flaming helicopters." Anybody care to comment or share an opinion on 25 yd combat headshots?
