is the "two to the body and one to the head" old news? ive taken some classes from diffrent instructors and asked a couple vets and it seems the old school guys prefer this method but the newer generation just rely on shooting the target intail its down and one guy even said "one to the chest then shoot your way up to the head"...4 guys recomended the "two to the body & one to the head" method while three said just shoot intail the threats taken care of...my buddy who has four tours in the sandbox and a few years as a security contractor said "dont be a retard just shoot intail they cease to be an issue". I like the mozambique drill and i find myself naturally going back to this method but is it really the best option?
Two to the body, one to the head... aka "the Rhodesian Drill" was developed during the Rhodesian Bush War against their Communist insurgents.
I've found that it is quite natural and accounts well for a bit of barrel climb.

I was trained by Cooper at Gunsite, to use the Rhodesian drill....
But considering that the enemy may be a terr, not a regular criminal, and be wearing a bomb vest and armor, shooting until the threat is neutralized (however you do it) is still best.

Two to the body and one to the head (the Moz drill) works extremely well against cardboard targets that stand there, don't move, and don't shoot back.
REAL bad guys move, hide and shoot back.
Here is what I teach my students: Shoot what is available for you to shoot (whatever body part you can see), until the bad guy gives you something better to shoot. Shoot until the bad guy stops being a bad guy. It may be 1 round (doubtful) or it may be many rounds.
If they are wearing soft body armor and you are using a pistol don't waste your ammo on body shots where the armor is. If they are wearing hard plates and you are using a rifle don't waste your ammo on body shots where the armor is.
