Explosive Door Breaching
So, what happens when you have a door that you don't want to breach by pounding on it, or kicking on it, and you want to cause the folks inside to be stunned and incapacitated?
One word: explosives!
While not used very often in a LEO environment, military units train to use explosives to unhinge a door and cause shock and disruption in the interior.
This door breaching demolition was conducted for gun media representatives, by Asymmetric Solutions in Farmington, Missouri.
Asymmetric is federally licensed to use and handle high explosives. Staff have been trained on the use of explosives in this and other situations. They do not teach this in any of their civilian classes. Everyone observing was at a very safe distance wearing hearing and eye protection, the camera was remotely operated, etc. You should ever try this. Never.
Obviously in a real-world scenario they would not light a fuze, but trigger it with a wireless detonation device. They also added a bit more det chord for a bit of a bigger blast.
But the interesting thing to notice is how surgically the blast cut away the hinged edge of the door, nice and neat!
