My military training always insisted that the smaller the target, . . . the harder it is to hit. Cover makes that happen, . . . concealment makes that happen, . . . but what do you do out in the open? (I know, . . . don't go out in the open
). I was always taught, . . . and subscribe to a simple tactic: drop. On your stomach, flat, . . . you are one hard target to hit.
Today, . . . faced with being attacked in the open, . . . if cover is over 10 feet away, . . . I can be on my stomach, pistol in hand, returning fire, before most folks can cover that 10 feet distance.
Yes, . . . true, . . . absolutely, . . . I am out in the open, . . . but I can roll to cover when it is safer to do so, . . . and I have a wonderfully solid platform for shooting, . . . also I may have dropped off the radar screen of my attacker, . . .
Just food for thought.
May God bless,
