Pendulum: myth or truth?

69
Pendulum: myth or truth?The so-called “pendulum”, which allows one to go away from bullets, is one of the phenomena that distinguishes the so-called Russian styles ... Decades ago, the “pendulum” caused a notorious admiration, without critical perception. Now - exactly the same deliberate pitement, and also without trying to figure out and understand what's what. Experiments, when some big-bellied uncle, having decided to recall youth, tumbles to the best of his ability, and his drinking companion shoots him with rubber bullets from a children's pistol, we will not consider.


If only because the experiment is not pure, and the “pendulum” is not that. Why? Let's try to figure it out. Although, the theme, of course, is still that. But we must at least try to dot the i's.

We recall the words of Bruce Lee: "The board can not answer." Clearer? Not? Then we go further.
Take a good shooter who, in a favorite, cozy dash, quietly knocks 10 out of 10.
And ... send it to a biathlon competition - let's say, to a world-class competition.

Now he himself is under the gun of millions of views (he is shown live to the whole world, and he knows about it). Add the views of the audience directly on the track, as well as, of course, the views of rivals. And he also needs to go skiing no worse than the others, his arms get tired of, and his breath catches, and he also needs to shoot quickly and accurately (to be no worse than others, and not be late). How much will he beat out on average now?

We will be sadists to the end, and send the ill-starred poor fellow to ... war. Now the target: a) is mobile b) it shoots itself in response c) at any moment the shooter can cover with a random fragment, a projectile, a bomb — anything. How will he shoot in this situation? Can you make at least 1 effective shot from 10?

By the way, the Americans conducted research and found that only 1 / 10 men are suitable for war. Moreover, in modern conditions, in the modern world, these are often psychopaths and maniacs. Sadists who can legally fulfill their desires in a war. An ordinary person must step over the threshold in order to shoot at another living person - therefore, only about 30% of soldiers in a war are fired more or less accurately. The rest of the machine sticks out of the trench and bullet into the light of God, like a pretty penny.

So, we found out that we are not talking about a situation where one stands with a pistol and fires, and the second one, all in sweat and soap, tries to avoid bullets due to dizzying somersaults or mysterious body wiggles. We are talking about a "duel", a shootout, about a mutual fight!
In which it is still unknown who will win. And the "pendulum", which means a whole range of technical and psychological actions, helps - but is not a magic tool. It only increases the chances of the shooter.
What is the "pendulum"?

Firstly, this is the notorious “lower acrobatics” - a series of somersaults and rolls that help to move quickly from shelter to shelter, change battle levels (from stand to squat and back, etc.). These movements are performed forward, backward, right and left, and also diagonally in four directions.

Secondly, the level change. For example, a sharp drop on his back. Or squatting on one leg to the side, which performs two tasks - changing the level and leaving the line of attack (shot). In this case, the fighter himself makes a shot. The enemy needs time to analyze the changed situation and adjust its actions to reflect this. This can give a gain in time - even if it is minimal. In addition, it introduces the enemy in a stressful state.

Abrupt change of level and unexpected, unconventional movement can help in the fight. People are mostly guided by stereotypes in their lives. It’s one thing to shoot at an opponent in a rack or in a squat (these are habitual positions), and another thing for an opponent in a jump (in a long roll "swallow") is an instant movement with an incomprehensible trajectory and landing place. We add that the “flyer” had just shot himself and it’s not so easy to navigate. Do not forget that the enemy is in a state of stress! War is a mutual shooting.

Do not forget also that human vision is limited not only on the sides (peripheral vision), but also on the top and bottom. Therefore, people stumble their heads on branches or beams, or step on a rake ...
Due to this, there are possible "invisible" blows to the lower leg, groin, or even an uppercut, which the victim may not see corny - as if out of sight. On the other hand, the same special forces can look out of the door not as usual - at the level of human growth, or from below, but vice versa - from the top, dragging a stepladder to the aisle. This is also non-template. We are accustomed to, that if someone looks out from behind the door, then he does it at the level of human growth. Upstairs we will not even look.

Thirdly, psychological tricks. Disguise camouflage is based on perception stereotypes. It seems to be just green-yellow spots, and it is already more difficult for consciousness to grasp the human image - the human silhouette “breaks”, begins to merge with us for the terrain. Since the association with the human figure is lost. A connoisseur of disguise can only cover his face with a pair of large leaves, and it will already be very difficult to see him even from close distance (if his body is additionally covered).

Ability to use the situation for their own purposes. Even in the event of a collision between an unarmed person and an armed person, the first one can at least get away from the enemy. For example, maneuvering in such a way as to unfold one facing the sun is to blind. Taking advantage of the confusion, a dashing warrior can again jump at an armed enemy in a roll, land under his feet so that he does not see him and strike at vital points. Or run away.

An important point concerning the patterns of thinking, too - the modern man, imagining the "pendulum", automatically represents a shootout in an urban environment. And if you imagine the situation in the forest? Where is full of natural shelters such as trees, stumps, bushes, etc.

In the firefight (not hand-to-hand!), The hull is also used to reduce its area. Roughly speaking, turn sideways to the enemy, so that it was harder to get. This technique was also used by duelists of the Pushkin-Lermontov era — they stood sideways to the enemy, holding the Lepage pistol in their hands: firstly, it was more difficult to get there (considering that “lepage” was not a “stechkin”), secondly, the fighter protects to some extent, a hand; thirdly, a person in such a position is covered by a more massive, than now, barrel of a pistol. In general, what is, and all protection!

Let's sum up.
What is the "pendulum"?

- Leaving the line of attack (shot)
- Psychological impact on patterns of consciousness - unusual, non-standard actions make it difficult to assess the situation. That is, give time for some action. Since the enemy must first analyze the situation, then make a decision, then act. We can say that this is a gap pattern, which leads to the stupor of the enemy (at least short-term), and the inability to perform effective actions.

The pendulum is a natural movement - when children play snowballs, they shy away from the “shot”, although no one has taught them that.
Another useful game that develops the ability to leave the attack line is good old bouncers.

For the first time the term “pendulum” in hand-to-hand value appeared in V. Bogomolov’s work “The Moment of Truth” (In August, forty-fourth), 1974).

      I read somewhere that we can’t completely abandon the draft because our country is too big to fully defend itself with a compact contract army.
      And as a "side" effect: compulsory military service makes men out of boys. In our time, service in the SA was considered inevitable and prepared for it in advance. Regardless of social status. We, starting somewhere in the 8-9 grade, went in a crowd to the horizontal bar and studied, at the same time "discovering" tobacco and alcohol for ourselves. ) These are the "grimaces of the totalitarian past."

        And in addition to this, at school, in the 9th and 10th grades (88-89 years), they were sent to the training camps for the most real studies, for a couple of weeks. And there ensign taught us to love our homeland, and in a good sense, because hazing could not arise. And I will never forget the first wake-up on a hot summer morning when, in front of the open windows of the BTR barracks, I burned blanks from the KPVT wassat

              Previously, during the Union, the girl was not given to marry a guy who did not serve. I will not say that this was the case everywhere, but it was quite common. I don’t think that any father is burning with the desire to give his daughter for some painted prisoner.

              I answered you, if you don’t understand (apparently the thieves’ education is affected), I’ll write more - now the young guys are trying to get into the army, which was not there 5-7 years ago! The attitude to the service guys in the teams is completely different than to the defunct! crying Moreover, unlike the 90s, no one (the overwhelming majority) wants to become a thief in law or an "authority", there are still those who want to become a corruptionist, but that's another story and military service, unfortunately, is not a hindrance here, and help! laughing

              You can become a fraer, even a trump card, a thief like not. Cooperation with the government gives a ban on the crown, not only the Komsomol, but also the October Revolution and the Pioneers are a slag on the way to the thieves' crown. He took up arms from the authorities, and this is zapad.l.o. And if it's still in BB, then maybe the cock's cod is wrestling. Remember the hero of the pioneer from the Soviet films "blue bird" some other, I don’t remember now, this pioneer festivals quite a lot later, but did not become a legalist. The zone breaks people, and somewhere this crap gets out even from quite normal men. This is where the double standards are, the parasailing, and this is not in the paddle, like ????? you are completely in ..... climbed, completely, a pig will never do that.

          Those. "those who have served" angrily and silently minus. It is extremely unpleasant for them to recall the "impressions" of the first half of the "service." They are extremely ashamed of their "male behavior" during this period. They will never tell anyone about it. But what about yourself? In the subcortex, it will stay with them forever. A terrible dream.
          That was the main function of the Soviet army in the peace period. Turn normal people into creatures with a sick subcortex. I must say it worked fine.
          Although I had to meet decent people. But very little. Within the mathematical error. Maybe I'm out of luck? Maybe just such a people met? I don’t think so. The "sample" was wide enough. And it's basically the same everywhere. Almost solid "worthy men".
          It's about the times of "developed socialism", if someone does not understand.

But the practice of war for money is fraught with all sorts of Praetorians and they pay - we fight, they do not pay - we do not fight. Yes, there should be contract soldiers in the army, but there should also be conscripts.

            Without any doubt. Only now we are not talking about readiness, but about the capabilities of that very "every citizen." Contractors are seriously selected, they are constantly learning, constantly improving their skills. And this "every citizen" most of his life works, studies, and does not deal with all such things.

            And if a normal contract soldier is immediately ready for battle and possesses all the necessary skills for him, then it is fortunate if "every citizen" is at least fit for military action for health reasons. I am not even talking about everything that is subsequent and inalienable.

              There is no doubt that a person who has chosen the profession of a warrior will be better than a conscript, but the fact is that the army serves not only as a tool to defend the country but also as a melting pot of the nation, uniting this very nation into a single and indivisible whole. The contract army will not give such an effect. I am for a mixed system, with a certain percentage of contractors in serious positions.

                This is ideally and presupposes rather than a military training function of the army, but a political propaganda one. Moreover, the policy of such a state and propaganda should be at 5+. I’m talking about something more achievable in the foreseeable future in the conditions of the Russian Federation.

                  It is not a matter of politics or propaganda, but of the understanding that a citizen is not only a privilege, but also an army, one of them.
                  In addition, the army brings people who would never meet in civilian life or would not want to meet, the army leaves no choice. So the army teaches you to be more moderate in relation to others, even not much like you. No wonder they say that the army makes men out of boys.

                    So we get what now exists when nothing like this happens, and often the army brings the completely opposite effect that we can now observe with Caucasians and just lawless people. And the saddest thing is that the latter can easily be found among the authorities.

                    In addition, the army brings people who would never meet in civilian life


                    I doubt very much, very much. Maybe somewhere there are some unique ones, but usually in the army and in life a person somehow meets with absolutely all types and characters and also regardless of desire.

                    In order to make what you have described real, you must first develop a very serious political ideology that will be comprehensive, then hammer it in from school, including in the army, and be sure to rigorously monitor its implementation. And then the army will really be the "boiler of the nation."

                        I could not resist. I can hardly imagine an ideology that makes Superman out of, say, an Estonian. I suppose that this is possible only for peoples with a long and recognized history of military practice. And there are few such planets.

                        The people, all this is a considerable part of exclusively feelings and prejudices, especially with regard to military training and mentality. The mentality of the people changes during the revolution relatively quickly (as an example, the Russian Empire-USSR), and military training in general is all the same. To select suitable candidates, to drive them through the training program with the help of the right instructors, the output will be real fighters, regardless of whether they are Estonians or Brazilians.

          Dear colleagues! Much and rightly said, BUT! Alas, even in Soviet times (I can speak from the 70s of the last century) with the training of recruits, we were not bad, with the usual reserve not very! The "partisans" did not bother much with BP. But now is not about that. We need a system for training a conscript, at least no worse than in the USSR. And even more so as a reservist. there will be no time to bring to a normal level in case of "force majeure" (ie when there will be a BIG F ...). Therefore, there should be an organization in the school under the control and support of the state (call it what you want in the history of Russia - scouts, pioneers Where are the basics of organization and interaction in a team, sports and tourist training, initial military training - RB, an easy biathlon, technical specialization - taking into account hobbies: cars, radio business, aircraft modeling, medicine, etc.). development from elementary grades to senior (universities). For reservists, there is excellent experience and you should not make an arrogant face. The price of the question is worth it - for example, 1941. Although then they worked closely on the issues. And so about experience, this is the experience of solving reserve Switzerland.Who is really interested in this topic, let him read at least on the site "Military Review" - http://topwar.ru/579-samaya-militarizovannaya-strana.html. We need our own version of such a state system for training and keeping reservists in readiness. Everything else is PPR in the troops. "Partners" do not like to wait neither in 1812, nor in 1941, nor in modern history. But the pros, this is for the first day or hours with a large B

    A contract army is needed in a full-scale war at the very beginning, while the country and the people are mobilizing, switching to a military track. Also, without a contract army, not in peacekeeping missions, the UN. Although I agree the spacecraft in% should not be too large, it would be better to increase the number of airborne forces. Saturation of it with the most modern weapons. Inter-service "complication" of the airborne forces.

    Yes, in ordinary conditions - I mean the absence of a large-scale war, contract soldiers are much more effective. And in case of a big disaster, there is no way to do without a reserve. And it is better if it is a trained reserve.

    Do not rush to believe (by British scientists) Most likely, this is true at the initial stage of the war, but over time, more fighters get hardened, so I think the percentage will be higher. And this applies only to front-line fighters, the artillery does not see the enemy shooting at the coordinates there special spirit is not needed. Well, maybe amers and 10% but other nations, the percentage may be many times greater.

    Take a good shooter who calmly knocks out 10 out of 10 in his favorite, comfortable shooting range. And ... we will send him to biathlon competitions - say, to world-class competitions.


    And let's put Uncle Vasya from the garage at the wheel of the Boeing, or give a dental drill to the Beeline sales manager ... smile

    Moreover, in modern conditions, in the modern world it is often psychopaths and maniacs. Sadists who can legally fulfill their desires in a war. An ordinary person must cross the threshold in order to shoot at another living person - that’s why only about 30% of soldiers in a war shoot more or less accurately. The rest stick out the machine from the trench and bullet into the light of God, like a penny.


    Are psycho maniacs the best soldiers? I wish Chikatilo would have been surprised ... laughing
    In war, they learn very quickly and kill and shoot well! Usually, after the first battle, science comes.

    The pendulum is a natural movement - when children play snowballs, they shy away from the “shot”, although no one has taught them that.
    Another useful game that develops the ability to leave the attack line is good old bouncers.


    Yes, that's just, a ball and a snowball are not a bullet ... And if they hit you with something rapid-fire, then an attempt to "swing the pendulum" may be the last ...
    "Pendulum" is not a myth, it is a real system, but applicable in a fairly narrow range of conditions. If they shoot at you from a "revolver" from a certain distance, and you know how to swing it, it will help, but if it's some kind of "Glock" or something like that, alas, you won't have time ...
    The increase in the rate of fire and the density of fire in the weapon practically brought to naught such techniques as the "pendulum" or "shooting in Macedonian".

      I confirm - against a professional with a Glock (and even more so with any PP with its density of fire) "swinging the pendulum" is not very promising. But...

      But pros are relatively rare. Operations are usually conducted against the army, terrorists, the criminal element, but you can already swing with them.

      Shooting "in Macedonian" with two AKs has been carefully practiced not for the first and not the last year: you can even blow the whole horn off with the auxiliary hand - shooting from it is conducted for suppression, but with the main hand, shooting is conducted only for defeat, only for sure.

      Of course, ideally, during the assault, you are covered by two sniper pairs, a machine gunner, "armor" with PKVT guides you to the walls (you show it to "stripes" on the schematics), but in life it happens that you are your own support and cover ...

    In general, another article by Didenko which is a compilation of other people's articles. Nus, let's get started.

    send the unfortunate poor fellow to ... war

    How will he shoot in this situation? Will she be able to make at least 1 effective shot out of 10?


    Anyone familiar with the basics of combat knows wonderfully that the effectiveness of firing from personal small arms in a war is extremely and extremely low when measured by hits. I heard figures that 30 thousand shots can fall on one killed and this is not the shooter's fault. It's just that the fire is often not aimed, it is conducted at the level "they shot at us from that green stuff, let's shoot there" and so on.

    As for all this pendulum. You can conduct a simple experiment by trying to perform similar tricks in the form of long flips, a change in body position, on the front sight of a partner. It will quickly become clear that the stuntman requires serious physical skills (and not everyone has them) and working out the data of acrobatic exercises is the most difficult of which force the shooter to move his hand only slightly. I could now begin to load the neuromuscular connection, the passage of a nerve impulse from the central nervous system to the muscles, etc. But who needs it? In short, all these flips and other tricks are complex multi-joint, multi-component and long movements, they are slow. From the shooter is required only an extremely simple movement in the form of a change in the position of the hand and pulling the trigger with your finger. These are simple movements and very fast. You cannot fool the central nervous system, the shooter in the described case is faster.

    So all these pendulums and other "Russian" styles should be left to the cinema. Only there it is possible that at a distance of 10m a steep SMERSHOVET dodges the shots of a normal shooter who has already pointed a pistol at him and shoots.

    Of course, this will increase the chances of survival if the enemy has not yet snatched up a weapon and has not been aimed (especially if you roll for cover), at a relatively long distance where you first need to notice, visit, and during this time the fighter will already be outside the affected area. Well, or if the shooter is a snotty shkolota, then a lot of things will help here. But all this is absolutely beyond the limits of any pendulums and in a real war it often looks like an extremely simple and quick run, bending down if there is appropriate shelter at the end with a sharp transition to the supine position with the help of a jump.

    Generally in the article a lot of water and similar pearls

    It's one thing to shoot at an opponent in a standing position or in a squat (these are the usual positions), and another thing at an opponent in a jump (in a long swallow roll) is an instant movement with an incomprehensible trajectory and landing place


    Already the movement has become instant laughing In this case, it’s rather stupid to hit the target and give out at a fast pace a series of 5-6 shots. Due to dispersion, there will definitely be a hit.

    Go on, Didenko! Burn!

      Since you touched the central nervous system, then let's develop this topic more broadly, much more broadly. In a stressful situation (for example, a duel), the central nervous system responds to any sudden movement as aggression. Reflexively, the muscles contract and, according to previously developed patterns of movement, react — block, hit, pull the trigger. Reflex response is much faster than understanding at the level of thinking. Right? Right. You need to train reflex movements, but it’s silly to hope that you will be faster than the enemy, since you don’t know his level of training.
      The pendulum and the like are not a set of specific movements, although in the eyes of modern man they are. This is primarily a different pattern (so to speak) of reflexes. Try the following. Your opponent raises his hand sharply. At muscle level, you will feel a contraction. This is a protective reaction of the body to self-preservation at a deep level. Everything is so clear. Now your opponent makes the movement too, but not abruptly but smoothly, or at increasing speed. The body at a deep level will not feel the threat and will not respond. Here, consciousness turns on - it has already analyzed the situation and is ready for a reaction. But fractions of a second, or even a whole second, have already been lost - they have already approached you a step and left the plane of impact or shot.
      The most important thing in this technique is to learn to make movements not with explosive speed, but with rapidly increasing and decreasing. I agree it sounds incomprehensible, and even stupid. We are accustomed to certain stereotypes of movement, behavior, to certain patterns. Going beyond the scope of these templates gives the fighter some advantage that needs to be properly used.
      Psychosomatics duel is very interesting and entertaining thing))).

        I do not argue. "Pendulum" is a bunch of useless things brought to the level of reflexes, that's right.

        The most important thing in this technique is to learn how to make movements not with explosive speed, but with rapidly increasing and decreasing


        That is, giving the shooter much more time in order to riddle with bullets. He is already with weapons, ready to shoot, already sees the target. He doesn’t give a damn about 1000 times and 1 speed, he will shoot.

          Sorry, I did not immediately recognize you as an idealist, I thought that I was communicating with a realist. There are no ideal situations in life. I think that a situation is unlikely to arise when an armed man meets an unarmed one on an open flat concrete area measuring 100m by 100m, at a distance of 7m from each other, and they will fight for life and death). You are thinking from this point of view. The pendulum-type technique was not designed for such situations. In any case, this is just one of the tools for saving life and neutralizing the enemy. Usually they work in a group, where tactics are also applied, weather conditions and the conditions of the task at hand are taken into account. For example, Bogomolov's book describes such a group. Read carefully the chapter where the saboteurs are taken (the film is good, but this episode is staged absolutely unprofessionally). Everything there is like in a textbook: who has what tasks in the group, how it was prepared, how the capture was carried out, how the wolfhound acted. Note that the saboteurs were shooting. And these were not ordinary peasants who took a pistol in their hands for the first time. For your information: the book was written on real events - Operation Neman. Bogomolov is a former officer of SMERSH. Here is what he himself said about the pendulum (before him this term was never used in the literature) - "The most rational ... behavior ... during a forceful arrest", called by counterintelligence officers the "swing of the pendulum" technique. For information: before Bogomolov, the term "shooting in Macedonian" was not used anywhere in literature either - that is, shooting on the move from two pistols (or revolvers) at a moving target. But this type of shooting first hit the pages of newspapers in 1934. Do you know why it is called that?

            when the armed man meets the unarmed on an open, flat concrete site measuring 100m by 100m, at a distance of 7m from each other, and they will fight not for life but for death).


            However, such situations constantly occur with only one but also, the site is often not even and sometimes not even concrete. Unarmed is different in that he has a weapon, but he has not yet got it. Even more often during military operations there are situations when the weapon seems to be pulled out, but the shooter saw first and needs to survive, determine where the fire is being fired, ideally neutralize. But to survive is enough.

            Then came the same water, the mention of SMERSH, Bogomolov, but a minimum of specifics, or rather its complete absence. What is the funniest mention of a work of art while such techniques are approved and described, to put it mildly, not by them. In no divisions has been applied or is applied, no documentation, nothing. As a realist, I can safely say that among idealists like you, the "pendulum" is something spherical in a vacuum, incredibly powerful, at the same time indescribable. Something like contactless combat, which seems to be used, but in fact no one outside the conditions of the show was able to check it and describe it too.

            it's about snipers


            No snipers, the usual situation even for the SGA police.

    The human body is a very complex chemical machine. In a stressful situation, the endocrine system releases the hormone adrenaline into the bloodstream, which temporarily sharpens perceptions and speeds up reactions at times. Some professional special forces and security forces can even enter the "body afterburner" mode at will, but of course not all.

    Yezhov was shot in a prison cell through a "feeding trough" and he really dodged bullets. But those who are not familiar with this state, still do not believe it. I firmly know that this is true, I myself have been in such a state once, albeit an adolescent.

    What a hot topic! But still interesting.
    For those who are in or near the topic. Do you want to know what a "pendulum" is? To begin with, tear your asses off the sofas and armchairs, go out into nature in a quiet, uncrowded place, take an air gun (you can airsoft, but better than 4,5 caliber with iron balls), stand with a friend (or an enemy) at a distance of 10-15 meters from each friend and ... dream. That you are Tamantsev. The very hero of Bogomolov's book, who swung or swung it, is not the point.
    Waking up from dreams, shoot at each other, while trying to change levels, tumbling, falling, flying, grabbing balls with your hands, dodging them.
    The psychological factor. At the same time, you can encircle each other with matyuk, poison jokes, promise to repay a girlfriend or wife, and not repay a debt.
    How is it going? Make sure you Tamantsev? Or, because of the low fitness level, it’s more likely that the target is growth-free; But what a result! You left the house and at least did something yourself! Fresh air, physical activity! And it’s easier to think!
    When you return home to drink beer with a friend or already an enemy, remember such a pike - common sense and experience. Your meaning, the experience of others.

    The gun really works at a distance of 1-10 meters, most often up to 7 meters. It is extremely rare, but it happens beyond 10. The enemy, of course, will not stand a pillar, but will try to either find shelter or reduce the area of ​​fire. You can sit down or try to shoot down the scope, starting to move. However, a good shooter, even if he misses one or two, will correct the fire and make an amendment. And it will end up in the end. But when will this end come? Before the cartridges run out? Or not?
    Did you duel with a friend? This means that they have already experimentally (empirically, if you will) found out that it is better to shoot from a stationary position - it’s more accurate. That the speed of any maneuvers is lower than the speed of pointing the weapon. That the time of a duel is limited to seconds, not minutes and hours, your duel is 1-5 seconds and that’s it! And, finally, that in addition to maneuvers, it is necessary to conduct fire, moreover, by yourself.
    And when you ran into a horse (that is, jumped, not crap), you suddenly realized that all these maneuvers at least to some extent make sense when you have pistols or revolvers in your hands. For the presence of an assault rifle or a submachine gun turns your games and one long line, which will still catch up with the horse. Or in two stages, as you like.

    But in the end, everything is simple - a maneuver in a fire duel is possible only in the first instants and only one. If then you did not bother the opponent of the philosophical argument, then he will bother you.
    Everything, you can go back to the sofa, the beer has cooled down.

    I heard about the "pendulum" for hand-to-hand combat, increasing the distance when the enemy starts to move, leaving the line of attack, and so on, was supposedly designed to fight various highly professional fighters. It is still possible to believe in the effectiveness of this system, but somehow it is hard to believe in avoiding a bullet. Still, in order to aim the weapon and shoot, you need to use fewer muscles than to move somewhere, respectively, the reaction time is less, plus modern, rapid-fire small arms are unlikely to leave the "dancer" any chances, especially against a trained shooter

    Many mistakenly believe that the pendulum allows you to evade bullets) This is not so. The pendulum allows you to preempt a shot by some fraction of a second. In doing so, by breaking the position of the body, the sighting line arrow. For example, a shooter points a gun from a certain distance, his opponent dodges abruptly twisting the pelvis (the figure resembles the runner’s starting position, which is located in profile to the shooter) and jerkily leaves for the nearest shelter. The shooter, too, being under stress, is lost for some time. Here, the TS correctly noticed the psychological moment. He then aimed at a standing figure, which, an instant before the shot, changed its outline and quickly moved to the side. Which for the shooter is often an unexpected surprise. The shooter reflexively, after a moment, shoots at the place where the target’s figure stood. This is how the myths about bullet evasion are born. With regards to any flips and movements in the lower acrobatics, as it were, in combat conditions. When it hangs over your head a couple of times, then the movements are performed strictly for your two, the body at the same time resembles the letter D))) And run for the nearest shelter, because for some reason the pendulum disappears hunting) And try somersaulting, not in a warm room, light , but in the armor, but with a duffel bag and unloading. Something like this.

      For example, a shooter points a gun from a certain distance, his opponent dodges to the side by abruptly twisting the pelvis


      And the normal shooter sends several shots at the target and, if necessary, makes an adjustment in the pauses between them. Given reality, this amendment will be miserable at best, and most likely no.

    The pendulum and the like are not a set of specific movements, although in the eyes of modern man they are. This is primarily a different pattern (so to speak) of reflexes.

    Quote: erased
    The gun really works at a distance of 1-10 meters, most often up to 7 meters. Extremely rare, but it happens beyond 10.

    Quote: NAZAROFF
    . The pendulum allows you to preempt a shot by some fraction of a second. At the same time, breaking the aim line of the arrow by changing the position of the body.

    Well said.

    One specialist, when asked about the pendulum, said briefly:
    Each one has his OWN. This is a set of rules for the elements of survival, based on their own intuitive EXPERIENCE. And they call IT differently.
    The main rule:
    The one who "plays" with the enemy must "lead", ie LEAD the scrum and keep the situevina under control.
    And so it is psychologyand experience и skill.
    In other cases, he is barefoot, in case of loss of control over the battle and the enemy, in any case, you instantly slam.


    Frankly speaking, the special one was neighing when I asked him about the super-pendulum.
    His counter question was this:
    - here you are fluent in uh-uh ... well, for example, extreme driving a tank, this you can win the battle paired with an experienced gunner?
    - looking WHERE, WHEN and WHAT the enemy is, what are the conditions of the battle and tasks, how is the location ... in short, this is a children's question.
    - That's right, it's CHILDREN'S. Well and you ask fuli? )))
    wink

    .........
    ps
    By the way, about the "pendulum" with a writing machine:
    How many tried to shoot with PM (not TT) at the firing range, i.e. NOT indoors? For example, on a target, or how are all normal military men - on a jar of stewed meat?
    Often hit?
    Believe the tanker, whose PM timetable is far from easy ... surprises are a complete barrel)))
    Real pistols are top-class masters.
    yes

    I have an idea about the question at the level of this article: http://www.vipv.ru/strelba-iz-pistoleta/strelkovyi-maiatnik-smersh. Maybe someone will come in handy, or else the discussion is about frogs, or about grasshoppers, or don’t understand what at all. There on the resource and other articles on short-range firearms, I once liked it, it seems to be a very practical approach.

    You know, my friends consider me a good driver, especially three of those whom I pulled out of an icy turntable before a long-distance traveled to the place of our pirouettes. But once in a career where local super drivers arrange a ride, I was driven by a girl from Germany whose main job is to ride people for money according to the Nurburgring. It was something that I didn’t sleep the night, I laid in my head how it is possible to use the pedals, the handbrake. Probably here they write those who have a distant impression of the pendulum, and man is a super machine, but not everyone is.

    By the way, the Americans conducted research and found that only 1 / 10 men are suitable for war. Moreover, in modern conditions, in the modern world, these are often psychopaths and maniacs. Sadists who can legally fulfill their desires in a war. An ordinary person must step over the threshold in order to shoot at another living person - therefore, only about 30% of soldiers in a war are fired more or less accurately. The rest of the machine sticks out of the trench and bullet into the light of God, like a pretty penny.

    I did not expect anything else from the American warriors. If our soldiers were like that, we would have lost the Second World War in 41.

    I apologize, but I did not like the author's reasoning. I have all the relatives of the men participated in the war. And all, without any regret, crushed the Germans and the other scum, including the 44-year-old banderlog. No one was fired in the air. No one evaded the battle. Therefore, 1/10 is not true. To say the least. For a bullet in the air, they could then be shot.
    At the expense of cooks and clerks. In the division of the staff of 11000 people there were 6800 active shooters. These are those who really fought.
    As for the "pendulum", this is also a mythology invented by the writer. Unfortunately, I cannot give examples of the training of our special forces. Let me just say that I was a very good shot in static. This is when you stand against the target and shoot. So our specialists shoot better in dynamics than I do. It's like throwing a basketball. You can stand under the shield and not get hit. And you can plant one after another in a jump without looking. The only difference is the ball or the bullet.

      In general, a long-known fact. These are people, not a game of toy soldiers. On this stands any any developed society. A person will not kill another person without serious preliminary psychological pumping. Often something needs to be broken in him so that he really wants to kill someone. Without this, at best, a soldier will simply work: aiming, firing, hit / miss - on the drum. And pumped on the other side of the front sight he will have a personal enemy, which must be killed at all costs. Those. fighting capacity is growing at times. True, problems arise with subsequent rehabilitation. The problem is especially characteristic when a soldier plays the role of an invader or a mercenary. The same Germans had to thoroughly powder their brains in order to fight normally at the beginning of the war. Well, especially typical examples are Vietnam and Afghanistan. There are already concrete live participants who confirm that they really had a drum about the effectiveness of the shooting and it was completely unclear what it was they had to rush into a foreign country and kill someone for now ... Well and further on, what kind of shock they had survive in order to start putting your soul into your business. Or do not start, then the map will fall.

    As they say, yes .... On the one hand, leaving the line of fire is absolutely true and is not in dispute. On the other hand, it’s just that the chances of getting into you are not that great. I read that a well-trained New York cop in real life hits an average of 1 shot from 17. And really - it’s one thing when you put your hand behind your picture, slowly raise the babahalka, aim for half an hour sticking out your tongue - and really, look, you’ll fall ... But when high-speed shooting begins ... then another thing. You begin to feel what a clumsy bear you are in general .. I didn’t succeed in snatching the gun from the holster and shooting in a simple somersault diagonally across the left shoulder.
    And yet - about the percentage of combat-ready men - look how this is solved in Israel: everyone serves, but only those who have iron in balls go to Golani and Givati ​​... the rest - to jobniks ...

    I believe that the author of this article saw the Kalashnikov assault rifle only in pictures. And he knows about military service by hearsay. It is somehow the same for him: to dance around a bonfire with a spear, or to swing this same pendulum from the line of fire. He does not understand that for a fighter, in general, psychological preparation is the main thing. He, any skilled fighter - definitely a sadist !? In general, the article is dumb. So - for the sake of an article, such as so that the public does not forget.

      I will join. Biathlon, clay pigeon shooting and pendulum are completely different things. And the simplest "pendulum", as a person who knows his business once told us, is a system of two people - you and the enemy. And both "swing" so as to get each other ("each other" I was still pinned, but this is so: the person closest to you is the one who tries to shoot you and you will know him better in ten seconds than your own mom). And the environment is the "pendulum thread". Do what you want, even lick the balls. :)

      You can learn to "swing" only through a long workout, we were not given this, and there was no need for it. Among other things, even the most serious psychological preparation is required. In such a fight, one should not be afraid of death and pain. Samurai approach if you like. In principle, a formation with shields and clubs is also a "pendulum" and it is not necessary to "swing" it individually and not necessarily with weapons. On the contrary: the "thread" can be full of people.

      Biathlon and trap shooting have nothing to do with it.

    It seems that the author confuses the profession of executioner and warrior, in a normal army, a person with manic inclinations will simply not be accepted into the army, either by mobilizing wartime, or, especially, by contract / draft in the army of peacetime. No one needs an unbalanced man with a weapon.
    At ranges of fire combat (up to 300-400 meters), you see the figure without any special details, the jitters do not come from the fact that you shoot at a person (this can be in a calm atmosphere), but from the general situation of the battle - fatigue, fear, thirst, insufficiently worked out shooting skills, no habit of shooting sounds, explosions, whatever, but not the embodiment of the principle of "Thou shalt not kill".

    Let's sum up.
    What is the "pendulum"?
    - Leaving the line of attack (shot)
    - Psychological impact on patterns of consciousness - unusual, non-standard actions make it difficult to assess the situation. That is, give time for some action. Since the enemy must first analyze the situation, then make a decision, then act. We can say that this is a gap pattern, which leads to the stupor of the enemy (at least short-term), and the inability to perform effective actions.
    The pendulum is a natural movement - when children play snowballs, they shy away from the “shot”, although no one has taught them that.

    Another useful game that develops the ability to leave the attack line is good old bouncers.
    For the first time the term “pendulum” in hand-to-hand value appeared in V. Bogomolov’s work “The Moment of Truth” (In August, forty-fourth), 1974).

    I do not know what year and what edition of the novel "The Moment of Truth" the author read and used when writing the article, but in my edition of the novel there is a footnote that says:
    "Swinging a pendulum is not only a movement, it is interpreted more broadly than can be understood here from the words of Tamantsev. It should be understood as "the most rational actions and behavior during short-term fire contacts during a forceful arrest"... It includes both the instant drawing of the weapon, and the ability from the very first seconds to use the distraction factor, the nervousness factor, and, if possible, the illumination, and the instant unmistakable reaction to any enemy actions, and the proactive swift movement under the shots, and incessant deceitful movements ( "feint-game"), and sniper accuracy of hitting the limbs when shooting in the Macedonian style ("disabling the limbs"), and continuous psychological pressure until the end of the forceful arrest. . "(c) V. Bogomolov" Moment of Truth "
    As it seems to me, the last phrase of the quote, namely "capture alive" is the essence of "swinging a pendulum", ie. this is a way of behavior of a special forces soldier or an operative, "imprisoned" for detentionrather than a regular army fighter or contractor aiming to destroy Therefore, I do not think that the article reveals the meaning of the "swing of the pendulum" method. the author himself did not understand the essence, as a result, the discussion was reduced to something incomprehensible, including the discussion of thieves' concepts.
