If I recall correctly it was inspired by a report someone sent in to Jeff Cooper about the leader of a patrol who ran into a "terr" in Mozambique. I think he was armed with a S&W 39 (no idea what ammo but likely it was ball). He shot the guy something like 8 times in the chest at very close range with no visible results and then... with only one round left he put one "between the running lights".Originally posted by BB:
I've heard this discribed as "two in the heart one to the head". Anyone familiar with this? I assume it originated in Mozambique? What is the proper drill, how fast and at what range should it be used?
A reasonable question. In my view, the head is too tough a shot to use as "plan A". Absent visible body armor, going for the center-of-mass is a better, quicker to execute "plan A". If "plan A" doesn't work, then its time to go to "plan B"...a head shot. It's still a tough shot, but tough sh*tOriginally posted by Blackjack:
Why on earth would you put 2 in the chest and _then_ 1 to the head if you have the ability and the sitution allows to get a head shot first ???

Not to step on coat tails. The drill did orginate in Mozambique, but there were some slight differences. The individual was a well respected and close friend of Col. Cooper who had been in that neck of the woods "training". When he decided to depart and through regular channels,
