BREACHING TEACHING DOOR
Conceived by breaching instructor Skip Harris, this door allows you to breach mechanically, thermally, ballistically and conduct some limited explosive breaching, too. All this can be accomplished quickly with the standard 2 x 4 and 2 x 8 wooden blocks. Set them up with conventional locks, chains, rebar or wood screws. The door lets users change breaching configurations quickly and easily. The door can be set up as a free standing unit or mounted in a door opening. This is an inexpensive vehicle that provides classes with rapid live-fire training in many different breaching techniques, in a limited amount of class time. See this breaching door in use on page 61. (MGMTargets.com; 888-767-7371)
