Re: Do you practice a phrase to yell if you draw on a BG?

I knew a couple of IDPA shooters who yelled commands as they worked the course, not many.

In the Navy, during the Weather Underground bombing of reserve centers, senior E4s and junior E5s were selected to stand guard duty carrying actual ammunition for our rifles and pistols, unlike the normal sentries who walked their posts with semi-automatic clubs. Some of us had been "exempt" from standing sentry watches for a while, and all of us were retrained due to our new ammo carrying status. We were taught that we had to yell "HALT" twice, fire a warning shot in the air (in the NY Naval Shipyard among other populated places), yell HALT" again and then fire for effect.

The way most of us practiced it was to yell "HALT" twice, as fast as possible, shoot the bad guy (as often as needed), yell "HALT" again and fire one shot in the air.

We figured that it would be hard to tell which shots were which later.

I have never even considered using that in civilian life.
