1. Never seen any documentation of this, however I have seen documentation that some top notch trainers using it in their training. 2. Doesn't matter who uses is. Unless you practice it perfectly, it is a waste of time. Imperfect practice doesn't help you. 3. Just because someone practices airsoft on occasion doesn't make them an expert. 4. It is only a part of the training that is given, and a small part at that. 1. First off, Preacherman has actually served in combat, as compared to you serving in an airsoft battle. 2. Do you really think your knowledge has shown through on this thread? You posted theoretical information regarding flashbangs, things you probably learned playing R6 and CS. 3. Preacherman gave a very good synopsis based on his real training and usage of the real thing. He gave more information about the real usage than anyone in this thread. You chose to ignore that. 4. Between a new member who lists his experience as playing airsoft, and a plankowner member here who has actually seen combat and lived, I think I will place my trust in Preacherman's advice. 5. You accuse others of being narrow minded, but when they point out real life information that they have recieved during actual military training with the real deal, you close your mind and refuse to listen. On a more personal note, Preacherman is probably one of the most respected members here. When he posts information, the rest of us listen. I will kindly suggest that you do the same. I.G.B.
