Dynamic Shooting Systems (DSS France)

The Dynamic Shooting system is a proven concept designed and developed over several years of study and practical applications. It is an evolutionary shooting concept which affords the operator muscular, skeletal and bio mechanical advantages, reducing stress and increasing the confidence in the individual’s abilities.

The system has been primarily designed for the use of all calibre pistols from a range of 20 metres and in but is not limited to either range or weapon type. The process negates weapon recoil, allows a faster, clinical sight picture which can be maintained on target whilst moving. It is equally effective in the left and right hand and is male or female attuned.

The physical posture allows the operator to maintain the firing position for longer periods of time whilst negating the element of muscle fatigue or stress. The bio mechanical aspect affords a greater volume of oxygenated blood to flow to the brain thus improving the operators neurological process when under stress. This has been tested and accredited by the medical facility at Toulouse University whom have established an ongoing 'think tank' process to monitor and evaluate the concept training.

This system is simplistic and effective and is aligned to government agencies only.

The European Interagency Security Forum (EISF) is an independent network of security focal points who represent European-based humanitarian NGOs operating internationally. EISF is committed to improving the safety and security of operations and staff and strengthening humanitarian security risk management to allow greater access to, and impact for, crisis-affected populations.

Established in 2006 as an initiative of security managers from several European NGOs for information-sharing, the NGO-led forum now has over 85 member organisations (Aug 2017) and it acts as the hub for developing and sharing good practice for effective and appropriate security risk management for the NGO sector.

The EISF Secretariat works in collaboration with its Members to produce original research, arrange forums and workshops, and facilitate information sharing between members and the wider NGO and security communities. EISF also acts as a resource for others interested in security risk management from the perspective of the humanitarian sector.
