US Marine Corps Special Reaction Team USMC Dynamic CQB CQC Gunfighting Training Combat Tactical Shooting Training Lance Cpl. Nicholas S. Ranum Marine Corps Installations Pacific 1.jpg U.S. Marine Corps Special Reaction Team (USMC SRT) Receives Dynamic CQB/CQC (Close Quarters Battle/Close Quarters Combat) Gunfighting Training Focused on Enhanced Tactical TTP and Improved Tactical Carbine/Rifle and Combat Pistol Shooting SkillsLance Cpl. Nicholas S. Ranum of Marine Corps Installations Pacific has written a nice little piece on the U.S. Marine Corps Special Reaction Team's (USMC SRT) recent dynamic close quarters battle/close quarters combat (CQB/CQC) gunfighting training that's focused on enhancing their tactics techniques and procedures and improving their tactical carbine (Colt M4/M4A1 Carbine) and combat/tactical pistol (Colt M1070CQBP – M45A1 Close Quarter Battle Pistol) shooting skills. The three key quotes in the article are by Staff Sgt. Jordan G. Hardy, the SRT platoon commander, Provost Marshal’s Office, Marine Corps Base Camp Smedley D. Butler, Marine Corps Installations Pacific, and they read as follows:

"The training we did today helps the Marines build themselves as a team while also improving each individual’s speed and accuracy with the weapons systems."

"As SRT, we give the commander the ability to resolve a situation that a normal military police officer would not be trained to handle."

"Everything from hostage situations to barricaded hostiles — we are expected to be able to deal with. It all comes down to the training we conducted today and the skills we reinforced by practicing the basics of our job."

Lance Cpl. . Ranum's article caught DefenseReview's (DR) attention because your humble correspondent has actually trained with the Marines in force-on-force dynamic CQB/CQC gunfighting TTP, and I can tell you that not only are the Marines great warfighters/warriors, they're also great people. I enjoyed just hanging out and talking with them as much as I did training with them.

The article's a nice little read, so DR recommends you check it out.
