Practicing the 'little' things: 'Unassing' the vehicle
I recently attended a day-long firearms training on basic tactics for gunfighting from within — and around — a vehicle. The class was presented by my friend (and PoliceOne Contributor) Ken Hardesty, who runs Spartan Concepts and Consulting in addition to his full-time job at a major police agency in the San Francisco Bay Area.
About a dozen of us — including active-duty and retired police officers, an EMT, a parole officer, and a handful of civilians — worked on a variety of fundamental skills, some of which did not involve pressing the triggers on our pistols (rest assured, we also pushed plenty of rounds downrange!).
