Tim O´Neill: Shooting at / from / around vehicles – Using Vehicles as cover

This presentation focuses on the considerations when firing at / from / around soft skinned (non-armoured) vehicles. It highlights ballistic performance tests involving an array of differing ammunition types, emphasises the unpredictable and random protection afforded by motor vehicles, focuses on areas around the vehicle that may provide greater levels of ballistic cover and outlines the associated problems with shooting at and/or through glass.

This presentation should be considered a theoretical introduction and forerunner to further practical training sessions that develop an officer’s abilities to deal with a sudden & close quarter life threatening confrontation with an armed subject (including ambushes) by using multi-positional and moving / shooting techniques from and around vehicles.

The session topics include:

  • Concealment v Cover
  • Ballistic performance tests
  • Shooting at and through glass
  • Shooting from, at and around vehicles
