    Default *New Article* Basic Breaching for the common man Part I (Doors)

    Basic Breaching for the common man Part I (Doors)


    breaching cover.JPG
    Breaching is the term used within “Tactical” circles to describe the forced entry of a building or other obstacle. In simplest terms let’s just call it what it is, Breaking & Entering. I like to break reasons for breaching down into four categories Dynamic entry (raids), Exit/Escape, Rescue, and Access (soft entry).

    It should be understood that breaching is in and of itself a very specialized skill set, in fact we have guys on teams for whom breaching is their primary focus. So understand that my intent here is to only give an overview of some basic tools and techniques that the ordinary man may one day find useful should he find himself in extraordinary circumstances. Now you should be asking yourself what kind of circumstance would cause me to need to breach a target? Well broaden your mind a little and consider that you may need to perform a rescue breach in order to gain access to a family member during an emergency such as a fire, structural collapse or imagine being in the middle of an active shooter, or Mumbai style attack along with your children. In that case you need to GET THE HELL OUT!! And last but certainly not least is because knowledge is power so, knowing some basic breaching skills makes you a more powerful warrior. Once you understand the basic principles the application is up to you.

    First the innie/outie conversation has caused me more grief than anything .

    There are ways to breach Innies and outies with a sledge so if I gotta carry one tool only, it's a sledge.

    Don't discount the usefulness Sua puts on the up leverage after setting your bar, some use down leverage as it uses your own body weight, but BOTH will oftentimes open the door on their own by virtue of the jamb/door spread that occurs. I learned this tip from firefighters whom I would guess breach more doors than most of us professionally ( though with different goals)

    NEVER CONFUSE GETTING LUCKY WITH GOOD TACTICS (unless you are at the bar)

    I'm not in the business of Losing

    A stab to the taint beats most of the mystical bullshit, most of the time

    Agreed....If I have to only have one tool it's the sledge (actually if I can be really picky it's a TNT or Denver tool) but in the end a focused assault with a BFH will get the job done.
