TF Presents – Vehicle Counterambush: Fighting Drill for the Zombiepocalypse

Training for the worst case scenario…that’s the way to prevail. Not just to survive (which obviously is important) but to win. Rob Pincus is a longtime firearms and tactics trainer many of you might be familiar with. He’s the host of SWAT Magazine TV, a prolific writer, author of both Combat Focus Evolution 2010 and the Training Log Book and one of the busiest instructors we know of. He’s come up with quite a few drills some of our friends use on the range themselves, but this one may be the coolest one yet – and just in the nick of time. Everyone preparing for the impending zompiepocalypse, from Ohio cops to 5.11 Tactical, are undoubtedly relaxing now that Halloween is past. As though somehow the end of the world will happily coincide with a convenient undead-friendly holiday. Complacency kills, whether you’re a cop on the street, the gunner on top of an up-armored or the leader of a zombie eradication team.

Check out this drill, and if your rangemaster has a sense of humor try it yourself. Truth be told, you could probably make the argument that it simulates having to engage from inside a heavy, rioting crowd…but zombies are a more likely threat.

    I guess it’s just me, but I personally can’t wait for this “zombie apocalypse” fetish so many otherwise reasonable and sensible gun guys seem to have run its course. I’m all for some lighthearted silliness, but really…enough already.

  2. Martin says:

    The zombie thing let’s people talk about survival without being assumed to be a militia member who is mailing bombs to judges. If you say, “I have a bug out bag in case civilization falls.” people think you are a weirdo but if you say, “I have a bug out bag in case civilization falls due to zombies.” they think it is funny.

  3. Administrator says:

    Lighten up Jack. Martin has got it pegged.

  4. Mobious says:

    Just mention zombies and your company will be recognized all over the place. The old business models need updating, because slapping on green letters to your gear and printed out targets of undead will sell like hotcakes!
    But with so many people thinking it’d be cool to fight zombified friends and relatives with the lack of consideration for going undead themselves is just… well we all need some hope and dreams… wait…

  5. Jack says:

    “Lighten up.”

    Yeah, I’ll get right on that, chief. It’s awesome how the admin here feels the need to take to task any commenter who has something even slightly negative to say about a product.

    I have been a very long time reader, I was one of the ones who asked for open commenting here, and I check this site throughout the day.

    That said, maybe the administrator should keep in mind that the products we comment on (and might be critical of) aren’t a personal attack on you or SSD.

    Perhaps I’m not the (only) one who needs to lighten up.

    • Administrator says:

      I’m just tired of listening to people whine about Zombies. They seem to be the only enemy left without a special interest group defending them at every turn. Be thankful you have Zombies.

  6. Jesse says:

    As with any fad, things will run their course. Clearly the point was proven in where the stick needs to be pulled from. Obviously this was deemed of interest or it wouldn’t have been posted in the first place. There are plenty of posts to move on to.

  7. Jack says:

    Okay, that was funny.

  8. Tim Thomas says:

    Jack Your correct… the whole zombie thing is Bull Shit…

    Be thankful you have Zombies… Bull Shit… Too…

  9. D Reeder says:

    Gotta disagree. Not bullshit…standards vary wildly all over the country, so we SHOULD be thankful for the walking dead. If you’re a cop and you shoot an aggressive, armed assailant in New York or New Jersey, they crucify you in the press and second guess you no matter what. Shoot one in Oklahoma or Arizona and they slap you on the back and tell you “Good job, see you back at work in 3 days!” Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but seriously we need to enjoy the zombie craze while it lasts because I promise you this: it’s only a matter of time before the ACLU gets involved and starts pissing and moaning about undead rights.

  10. Emm says:

    I’m with Jack. It’s the readers right to voice their opinion about matters, that’s what the comment section is for. If the comments don’t match the Admin’s opinion and way of thinking, well that’s life. We can’t all agree. But telling a reader to “lighten up” and to complain about whining is unprofessional. Especially if a comment is not meant to attack the Administrator but simply voices and opinion about the subject at hand. And like Jack, I wouldn’t mind seeing less articles about Zombies here.

  11. Administrator says:

    Kettle, meet pot…

  12. Crow Hunter says:

    Zombies gets people (especially young people) interested in guns and shooting that might not otherwise be interested.

    Yes it is silly.

    But so is shooting at clay “pigeons” to train for real bird hunting and shooting at stationary unarmed cardboard “threats”.

    Seriously. Lighten up.

    Up until the popularity of First Person Shooters and specifically the Zombie FPS, guns and shooting (in the civilian world) was on a fast track to obscurity. Anytime spent in the local urban gun store was with people 45+ years of age, almost no young people.

    Now with the the popularity of “zombies”, lots of younger people want to own the real guns they play with in the games. And that lets them live their “zombie” fantasy. Hopefully, this will blossom into fighting for our collective rights to continue to own weapons.

  13. Thanks , I’ve just been searching for info approximately this subject for ages and yours is the greatest I’ve came upon till now. But, what about the bottom line? Are you certain concerning the source?|What i don’t realize is in reality how you are no longer really a lot more neatly-appreciated than you may be right now. You’re very intelligent.
