He gets out the driver’s side front door, goes back in through the driver’s side rear door, then hangs upside down out the passenger side rear door. Because being in the driver’s seat would be too dangerous. Words escape me. 

Watch the entire video. There’s even an honest-to-God tactical roll.

  2. All the best instructors will tell you to drop the gun on the ground before doing the barrel roll out of your vehicle.(1:17) This ensures that you can put enough targets on round. (1:40) The best advantage of using a light for caliber bullet is definitely the weight savings carrying that heavy gun around all day.

  3. Step on gas. Squish bad guy. Step on gas. Drive away from bad guy. Get a coffee. Stop someplace nice, get out and do Captain Kirk tactical rolls in the grass to celebrate your awesomeness.

  4. I can’t help but wonder if this video is a troll. I mean, everything in it looks so completely awkward and nonsensical that it almost has to be, right? They could have titled it “How to sprain your back, lose your weapon, and die in 3 easy steps.”

    The steps in question:

    Step 1: Get out of vehicle
    Step 2: Get back in vehicle
    Step 3: Get out of vehicle

  5. seems the public viewing was too much pressure for him, and the video has been removed.

  7. I’ve seen better ways to show off a new truck. But that Crawl-Thru CrewMax cabin looks like it might just be the ticket!

  12. It’s not impossible.
    I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-100 back home, they’re not much bigger than two meters.

  13. You cannot take stuff off the internet once it has been put up. I just saw this video. I have been thought once you get out of the vehicle, do not go back in. This looks like something out of a bad B rated action movie LOL

    In case you missed it or want to see it again, here is the link.

  14. Ok, I laughed pretty hard at this video and all the stupidity in it, buuuuut, when he dropped the gun before doing his roll, I think he was actually practicing range safety as he knew he couldn’t roll out and not sweep the cameraman or something, you can see he pauses right before he does it.
    That said, the rest of the video is just hilarious

  15. Heywood — Now that’s funny!

    DaveS — Thanks, original post updated to use new link. Owe you one!

  17. There is in fact merit to this. You guys who have never been in a weirdo cross fire first hand wouldn’t understand.

  19. @Norman Hamann: I thought “targets on round” was your joke. Actually hearing him say it in the video might have been the best thing all day.

  21. Years ago, Ayoob said that of you’re facing an armed man while in a car or SUV, using it as a weapon first makes the most sense. if you’re attacker has a rifle, you’re better off using your vehicle to flee in, rather than fight.

  26. To John Woo– I apologize, at least the action in your films usually follows a recognizable theme :-)

  27. Un-be-liev-a-ble. Super SEAL, Ninja, Special Forces, SAS, Ranger types that have never been outside of a square range shouldn’t do videos! But dropping the gun was awesome!

  31. So I am not sure I understand a world where it is safe to get out of a car, where you wouldn’t just walk around said car to the passenger-side at the rear bumper, having the full length of the vehicle for cover/concealment, and not having to hang upside down. I am sure the scenario exists, but it does’t come to mind very quickly.

  38. Now we see why the 5.11 pants have the strap over the right rear pocket; it loops over the seatbelt buckle and holds you in place for better accuracy from the back seat.
