High Risk Vehicle Stops Instructor Workshop takes a critical look at the traditional “Felony Car Stop”. An extensive live vehicle ballistics demo on various mediums will examine bullet deflection and deformation. A comprehensive look at vehicular cover and concealment will then be directly applied to the footwork and logistics of high risk stops and approaches.

Various force on force simunition scenarios, along with video and the ballistics data collected, will be utilized to both validate and debunk an array of high risk vehicle tactics. This is a problem solving course, come prepared.
