Excellent and valid points RB.
Working High-Threat areas I always had my rifle slinged and between my legs with the mag and lower receiver propped on my right thigh as passenger or across my chest with stock folded for quick release and engagement with the sidearm jammed under my left thigh (I'm right handed and our steering wheels are on the right-side and vehicles are generally manual rather than auto). We were always focussed on either identifying the threat beforehand and driving through/out real quick or debussing like mad and laying down supressive fire. I understand the "fight to rifle" concept, but running around the back to pop the trunk seems like a real big risk if you are alone and can get out the killzone, get to hard cover and engage more bad guys while doing it, in the time it takes you to get the long-gun out.
Me. I'm getting out with the car or high-tailing the hell away from it to actual cover. Seen bullets skipped under police vehicles, some through the tires and some through the engine compartment.
Yup, lots of things to consider when using autos. Here’s a good example by Kyle Lamb: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gT219NKPJh0
Very true, however, I've seen some car doors redirect a couple rounds away from a stationary target behind them. Basically, don't use it as cover, but it might prove better than nothing as you move off the X.
