16) S DRILL. A) The London Police developed the S drill for their version of S.W.A.T. To perform the drill, the student approaches the targets with the weapon in low ready. Rather than approaching them directly, he snakes in and out as if making an S. Sometimes he will be close to the target, sometimes facing them and sometimes at an angle. On the whistle, he must engage the target. Depending upon the distance he will use hip shooting, point shoulder, , etc. A very good drill that drives some range instructors nuts, since they may find it unsafe. 17) S.A.S DRILL- 60 ROUNDS. A) Begin prone at 50 yards, firing 5 shots. Get up and move to 25 yards, where a barrel is stationed as cover. Fire 5 shots kneeling from each side of cover. B) Run to 15-yard line. Face five targets, firing 2 shots into each via front sight only technique. C) Run to 7-yard line and empty the magazine using the Point Shoulder position.
