Confidence in your shot

Do you train enough to feel confident in your shot when it counts? Here is a video shooting through the cab of a truck with the windows down. easy to hit the target when the only thing in harms way is a 2x4 but what if it was your truck?

Well I wouldn't take the shot unless I had to but if I had to I wouldn't worry about my truck.

I don't think it would hurt the truck but I'd probably rather have some sort of purpose build barricade for training to shoot through windows.

I wrote a paper a while back, Computing Ordinates to Trajectory and Clearing Obstables" that would cover this.

It was written with rifles and machine guns in mind, but I suppose you could apply it here if you want to get fancy...............can you say LOOP HOLEs?

Its in .pdf format if anyone is interested.
