Has anyone ever used simunition for a live fire exercise?
I have done quite a bit of training with Simunitions over my career as an LEO. When you first start out with them, it is as close as you can be to gunfighting. My personal experience with it is: When my opponent was shooting at me, my focus was completely on him (both eyes open) and not my own sights. I tended to move very quickly and laterally, seeking cover, when taking fire. These are definitely not revelations but did help me understand the dynamics a little better. I still extensively shoot using the front sight at any distances longer than five yards knowing full well that I may not see it in a real gunfight.
