Viking Tactics 369 drill

Post by Shodan » Fri Dec 24, 2010 8:36 pm

There sure is a whole lot of safety and not a lot of training in this thread, so I decided to share a drill I saw on Youtube today, that I like the look of.

You could make two of those positions urban prone and high/low squat, and it would do you a lot of good, I think. Soon as the snow melts, I'm gonna try it out.

If you don't already have them, he emailed me the specs on the barricade. PM me an email address and I'll pass them on to you.

**And no before anyone gets the wrong idea, I've not met, trained with, or any other such with Kyle Lamb. And the PDF file he sends is free.

That is a real slick drill, I love a lot of the VTAC drills he puts up. I wish he would have mentioned more about his knee. If you look at the way he has his knee positioned. It isn't sticking out past the cover, keeping his femoral artery behind cover.

Nice find!

Here's a blueprint of the barricade:

I've been using the VTAC barricades for a couple of years now, both at Airsoft Gunfighter and in my firearm training classes.

Those barricades are crazy, and a lot more difficult than they look like they would be.

I love them.

The Viking training guys got all their stuff from the Magpul Dynamics training, and the 369 tactic is useless in airsoft. If you want good shooting positions then check out the Magpul dynamics training videos, preferably the art of the dynamic carbine.
I guess my motto was too "Violent" for some of the older adults on the forums so i changed it.

Position one - one the back

"Modern" Police Training frowns on this position...for a few minor reasons.

Really? Who's been doing training longer? It is NOT MagPul.
Don't get me wrong, I like the MagPul guys but Kyle Lamb and crew at Viking have been doing training a LOT longer than MagPul. MagPul has taken several things that Viking has been teaching for years and made it more public, but MagPul didn't come up with it all on their own.

Yea so my bad, they didnt get all there stuff from magpul dynamics, they take ideas from eachother i guess. but have you watched the magpul dynamic videos, not the previews but the real ones. I find that a lot of there stuff applies to airsoft and is incredibly useful

Yes, I have all of the currently available Magpul videos. Some of it's good, some of it I don't like.
Some translates well to airsoft, some does not.

The idea that the 369 drill is "useless in airsoft" is disingenuous at best. Any drill that gets you shooting in "unusual" positions is useful to some degree.
Practicing transitions is always a good thing, as is practicing shooting "off hand".
I've killed MANY people (in airsoft games) because I can do transitions extremely well, and I shoot off-handed better than most people shoot with their dominant side.


There is no one technique or trainer that is the be-all-end-all solution, any more than there is any one perfect weapon, caliber, etc. If there were EVERYONE would train the exact same way with the exact same weapon.

Off hand skills are definetaly important. It's probably just a personal preferance but i think Magpul does a better job of getting the methods across than the Viking does. And yea everybody that plays airsoft should practice there transitions, off hand shooting, shooting on the move, barricade shooting, odd shooting positions ect... you know the drill obviously
