You do not have to go deep to have a shallow water blackout and drown.
If you are going to do pool PT in a Crossfit style (swim sprints with other exercises) I recommend you limit your breath holding during the swim sprint. If you are in the military have a Dry Medic on the pool deck standing by with all equipment.

Can someone please site when the USMC used VSTOL in combat?
1) The average Active Shooter incident lasts about 12 minutes.
2) The average response time for LE is about 18 minutes.
3) Victim Initiated Mitigation (VIM) TTPs are what reduce the Rate Of Kill and save lives, not waiting for LE to arrive.
4) Being armed and trained is the best VIM TTP to counter an Active Shooter.
Go look at all the DOJ, DHS, and DOD studies or papers on Active Shooters, they will state that VIM is what reduces the Rate Of Kill.
Active Shooters go to Gun Free Zones for a target rich environment.
The Phoenix Draw Muhammed protest, everyone was worried of another attack. There is open carry in Arizona, most people where carrying, which made the protest a Hard Target. Nothing happened.
