Armed Citizen Video: How to Shoot through a Windshield

From the Archives 2018



A quick down and dirty 5 minute primer on shooting through a windshield when the shit hits the fan while in your vehicle.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the obvious here:

  • You are sitting in a three ton weapon made out of steel and aluminum that trumps that bullet in your rifle or pistol. If the situation permits, Stomp on the GAS!

We could also talk about Getting off the X (getting out of the Kill Zone) and avoiding fighting from a vehicle at all cost (because they are bullet magnets) but we can save that for another day.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

Lesson for the Day

Jeff Cooper once said:

“The only acceptable response to the threat of lethal violence is an immediate and SAVAGE counter-attack.”

So when three masked morons want to attack your vehicle with machetes remember that you have the upper hand: That 3 ton vehicle underneath you. Punch the gas and flatten them.
Also, irregardless of what TYPE of fight it is, whether you are on foot or in a vehicle, FORWARD is always better than BACKWARDS.
The reason for this is simple. When you are back peddling in a hurry, you cannot see where you are going and will more than likely trip (on your own feet or something else) and fall down. Or, if you are driving, crash into something and disable the vehicle. Both are Bad and put you at a disadvantage.
This is why the Spartans had the Motto “Always forward, never back.” Both as a tactic on the battlefield and as a mantra for life in general.


BTW this happened in Kenya (So much for cultural enrichment and diversity) but could happen anywhere, especially with the rise in ANTIFA street protest and civil unrest all across the U.S.
