Gunfight Dynamics

This involves discerning how the man-weapon interface plays out, and interacts, when in crisis or emergency situations.

LTC Alphin’s skills in this area allowed him to precisely reconstruct a fight over disputed property (see case of Tennessee vs. Pallet Handler).  These skills played a part in LTC Alphin figuring out that law enforcement had concealed a handgun in the Vettraino case.  He also precisely interpreted the scene and the remains of a professional hunter whose rifle failed and who was subsequently impaled and stomped to death by an enraged elephant.
