    personally, i see it serves no practical purpose for the majority of people.

    and i think if it did, i still wouldn't use the vehicle i drive to practice with.

    I don't see where he shot his vehicle. What is wrong with what he is doing? I have used the hood and door of some mighty expensive cowboy Cadillacs as a rest. No one complained unless I missed the shot.

    Absolutely not. But that guy is a pretty good shot.

    well mistakes and missed shots happen.

    personally i see no reason to put items i pay lots of money for in harms way for no practical reason.

    but it seems some have more money than common sense. i was taught from an early age to take care of the things i spent my money on.

    nope! it's a Chevy S10! freeze the video at 11 seconds and you will see the S10 emblem on the door.

    but still no great loss if it gets shot either!:p

    now if he had shot a Dodge, then i would have been pissed!:mad:

    A plywood cutout is far less expensive to replace than a car door. I would hate to try and explain that one to Mrs. A.

    I'd be just a tad more than upset if it was my Ford. ;)

    I am not sure what he is practising for, Maybe someone starts shooting at him a car pulls up in front of him. The person in the car winds down both windows and gets out , he then shoots the bad guy through the rolled down windows. I can see how that could happen. :rolleyes:

    My truck is too tall,I'd have to shoot through the doors to shoot a BG on the other side,or I could just lay down and shoot his legs.

    Maybe a riot. Maybe a zombie outbreak. But then we should all just head down to The Winchester, grab a punt and wait for the whole thing to blow over.

    Never know it might increase the value. You could say they were making a new Cobra version of the Steve McQueen "Bullet" as a limited edition.

    Or even a light weight fram and some cardboard with a cutout. But who woul want to clutter up the bed of the truck when you could just shoot through it.

    #1, a Ford don't care if it is shot. It keeps on going.

    #2, that Chevy looks to have bald tires and is probably a range fixture anyway.

    #3, Cars are lousy cover (aside from the engine block)

    Ya ha ha! You're funny, doc.

    I wouldn't do it for a variety of reasons.
    The noise, compression, and burning
    gases in an enclosed space, for starters.
