You're in backed up traffic on the freeway in the middle lane that's stopped when

you see two guys exit a vehicle 2-3 cars in front of you with AK47's/AR15's. They start firing on vehicles, and you're in the line of fire and may take incoming immediately.

What are you going to do?

Run. Fast, to cover if noticed. If not noticed; keep running.
If running isn’t an option, start shooting, and keep shooting while heading to cover. If that opens up a chance to run; run while shooting.

I practice shooting a lot more on the move than when standing still.

One consideration I had thinking about this is alughting from my vehicle while it us in gear...allowing it to roll into the vehicles in front of it, wheels turned, and drawing attention to it as opposed to me...the ensuing panic of the other drivers may be my ticket out...
Great plan!
If I did that; mine would put itself immediately in park and set the emergency brake on it’s own. Hell, it may do it as soon as I open the door…. 🤬

And Heaven help you if you ever activate the “rear parking brake assist” on the menu!

I am guessing you have a limited intellectual capacity if you have to resort to insults and asking if I can read. When the bullets are coming in your direction, everything changes. I can tell you that I have been in actual live shooter situations and while I do not doubt the one described happened, there is not nearly enough information to know what you would do. Further, unless you have been there you have no idea what you would REALLY do once the situation happens. When your brain starts to rapidly releases cortisol, adrenaline (aka epinephrine), and other hormones like serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine your square range, paper target, training goes out the window. Frankly, it is pretty useless anyway, other than to hone your fundamental skills of grip, stance and aim. When your heart begins to race, blood vessels constrict, and blood pressure skyrockets, in turn rapidly delivering oxygen and sugar to your muscles, you will find that your brain goes into overdrive and you will likely experience tunnel vision. These are all involuntary responses and while they can be controlled to some extent with experience, force on force training and/or combat experience, they never go away. If you have never tried force on force training, give it a try and let me know how your "plan" works out. If you have done force on force, then you will surely know that there is no way to know how any individual will react to a situation they are not prepared for. The one thing we all should know as shooters is that no situation ever goes as planned. As for me getting off on the wrong foot all I can say is lighten up and have a laugh every once in a while. The world is not out to get you.
Good Lord I don’t even know where to start.
So; if you think you need to “school us” on any of that basic crap you spouted (basic to us, anyway), you fell onto the wrong forum.

But don’t take my word for it…. :ROFLMAO:
I'm pretty damn sure brownie knows pretty well how he would react to most attackers in this scenario and has during his storied history in actual bad guy encounters. So you obviously have very little idea who brownie is, what his skills are, or how he's demonstrated those skills on multiple occasions against real threats on the battlefield and on the streets. So yes, YOUR postulated scenario pretty much put you in a bad light with many here. (n)
It damn sure did, and his “followup” was worse..
At this point; I wouldn’t pee on him if he was on fire. 👎👎
Again, I will apologize for not looking carefully enough at where this was posted and that was my mistake. I also agree I do not know anyone's level of training out here other than my own. I can say my training is quite extensive over 30+ years, but it may be less than some and more than others. I have BTDT on more than one occasion and it never gets easier or comfortable. I am an active participant in the the competitive shooting and training community and do believe there is a brotherhood amongst shooters and especially amongst those who take the time and effort to train. I always tell people just because you can play the piano, it does not mean you are ready for Carnegie Hall. I am not a troll or a douche bag (maybe an asshole) and I certainly did not mean to insult anyone. I have since read in other sub forums you guys are a sarcastic bunch and I was only trying to be funny. So in the end I again apologize if I insulted anyone as that was not my intent. I would ask you guys give me a pass on this one and know I will be more careful in the future. I may still be sarcastic as it is in my DNA, but I will certainly do my best to be more careful.
I very much appreciate your apology!
It takes a much bigger man to apologize than to keep piling it on. 👍👍

You have no way of knowing, but many of us have trained together, socialized, and/or been trained by some on this forum. So, when someone appears to be denigrating friends/training partners/mentors; it’s taken personally by more than just the intended recipient.

Sincerely; welcome to the forum!

Oh; based on your sincere apology; I WILL pee on you if you’re ever on fire in my proximity. :ROFLMAO: (y)
