Rifle Drill of the Week #2 - Mounting

Happy Friday SMTers!

I wanted to get this posted on Tuesday, but ill kids kept me from getting it filmed and edited on time.

But no illness stops a good Defender! So here's the next Rifle Drill of the Week.

Mounting is the skill necessary to bring the rifle from any ready position to sight alignment. SMT typically works from the Two Hand High Ready position vs other options. The reason is that we're training for home defense, odds are good that the threat is extremely close to you. You have to keep in mind that the rifle isn't simply a shooting tool, but a DEFENSIVE tool. If you can't shoot it, it makes a great club. From that muzzle up, two hand high position, you can deliver a fast mount and shot, AND you can deliver a quality muzzle strike if the threat gets into close range.
