This is an excerpt from the Introduction video in Vehicle Combatives series that is now live on the FSW University.
The Vehicle Combatives Series contains 9 videos that cover the overview of fighting in and around vehicles, how to exit the vehicle, the different options for cover and concealment, angles, how to maneuver around passengers, and finally how to practice it at home and on the range.

This is another snippet from the upcoming Vehicle Comabtives Training Course on the FSW University.
In this brief excerpt from our Vehicle Combatives series on the FSW University we are discussing the importance of engaging from compression inside the vehicle. There are a number of reasons for this one of which is dealing with engagements at the window when on your shooting hand side. Here is one option we have to help navigate such situation.
*side note: as a lefty I demonstrate all of these techniques in the full version right handed as well since few of us are lefties. This is also why I got switched up on my hands bc the prior clip I was demonstrating right handed procedures.
Many times we see shooters utilize the hood of a vehicle as cover but lean or lay over top it to stabilize their pistols shots. This technique creates a very dangerous situation for the person using the cover as near misses tend to become actual impacts from crowding the cover. By staying at least 3 or more feet (more space is better in most situations) back from the cover, you increase the chance shots that are deflected have enough space for the bullet to take the round off course and miss the shooter using the cover.
Stay tuned for the vehicle combatives being added to the FSW University in the next couple of weeks.
