Research of analyzing well-trained shooters suggests a 59% increase in survival (or specifically a 59% decrease in hits on the target from the threat) when cover is properly utilized.
The Problem? The word “PROPER” in that sentence. Anyone can run to cover and hide behind it but that doesn't give you the tactical advantage that cover should or would if used properly.
One needs the skills AND the tactics to know how to move to cover and then how to use that cover to protect oneself WHILE engaging the threat. This subtle art is critical to maximizing odds of success in any gunfight.
Active Shooter events are especially critical places for the use of cover. A lot of domestic or small scale assault threats happen in close proximity and end very quickly… sometimes before one could get to and use cover. But in many events and in almost EVERY active shooter or mass shooting event the use of cover becomes a CRITICAL tool to both survival and ending the threat efficiently.
It is because we feel that the proper use of cover may be the single greatest skill one needs in these gunfights (beyond basic fundamental shooting skills) that we chose to dedicate this entire training program on the topic.
We searched high and low and could NOT find a single course available in-person or via video dedicated to the topic of Use of Cover and/or Shooting Positions.
In most defensive handgun or carbine training, 20-30 minutes may be dedicated to showing students a handful of shooting positions and how to “slice the pie” but this education is NOT sufficient to give the shooter the knowledge of WHAT to do or the know-how of how to practice and train for it.
Fighting From Cover basically follows this general outline:
First: What are the various skills and tactics of use of cover and various shooting positions
Second: How does one practice and build those skills and make them second nature (especially given the challenges of range restrictions and potential safety risks)
Third: How does the use of cover skills and tactics get applied in a real-life gunfight

Fighting From Cover With Unconventional Shooting Positions online videos shown the importance of proper use of cover as the single greatest skill needed in a real life gunfight outside of basic fundamental shooting skills. Excellent dry fire and live fire drills to enforce real life situations. Quiz at end of course reviewed cover material taught but needs answer key to help shooters who don”t do well at written tests.
