Does anyone work in a department where you are trained Center Axis Relock?  And, has anyone heard any legal issues with it?


Thanks!

Hi Mike, our department used the Center Axis Relock (CAR) system for the last 8 years or so.  Previous to that we used a more traditional platform.  I don't know what our breakdown would be offhand, I would say we probably have 600 +/- CAR shooters out of 1300+ members.  I'm not sure what the Legal Issues you are referring to are- we are in Canada where so far we have less civil matters before the courts?  As for your other question, I have the fortune of being trained in both systems.

For the most part, the CAR is a system that doesnt seem to be taught in an academy setting, its a bit too advanced for that.  My experience with it is learning it, as well as position Sul, in tactical courses such as PSD or basic SWAT.  Its another good tool for the toolbox.  One thing I have to say is that its a complete system rather than a platform such as the Weaver, Isoceles, and modified positions....the CAR is flexible, particularly when in enclosed positioning such as moving through structures with tight space, or in very close proximity to other bodies.


Its well worth learning and training with.  Texas Tactical, www.texastactical.com, offers courses in it as well as instructor courses in it.
