How to Breach a door with a shotgun | CQB shotgunning a door | Tactical Rifleman

Phil talks us through how to properly use a shorty breaching shotgun to breach a push-door. There are different schools of thought about barrel placement and orientation. T1G teaches 45 degrees in (into the door frame) and 45 degrees down (to prevent the locking mechanism from flying across the room and injuring non-combatants within the room). Other schools teach different techniques. The key is to have positive entry in the safest manner possible. If your SOF unit is currently using different techniques; please leave a comment, as I would love to discuss your current TTPs. Iā€™m a big believer in always keeping an open mind and discussing/learning new techniques.
