We want to restate this article is not a “be-all” “end-all” article that will solve every ‘tactical’ problem. It is written solely to introduce the concept of tactical movement to those with little experience or knowledge in this area. Theory and Reality are two different things; what works in the classroom will not always work in “life”. Spotter Up will assume “no” responsibility for any use or misuse of information from this article. This article alone will not make the reader an expert in tactics or in firearms nor can it be used as a substitute for PROFESSIONAL TACTICAL TRAINING or WEAPONS TRAINING.

This technique is used generally when an entry-way must be entered from the same side by the *operators. Operators will place themselves on the same side of an entryway.
Some reasons for stacking on the same side of an entry point are generally because an obstruction, such as a wall, to one side of the portal doesn’t allow a team to stack at opposite, facing ends. Another reason for stacking on the same side of an entry point is the area before the threshold of the entry point is too small and restricts individual or team movement. One other reason is adjoining rooms are too close to the entry point.
Same side entries are not preferred because it reduces coverage of angles and the operators become a larger target for a threat to engage.
*Operator: Officer/Troop member
