Woman flees gunfire after ATVs and motorcycles surround her car

If you were armed, what would you do if you are surrounded?

  1. If in a truck/SUV? 4x4,2WD or AWD
  2. If in car 4x4,2WD or AWD

When I watched this, I thought, crap. I just trained for a scenario like this at Fox-Den.

In either 1 or 2, sitting there or leaving your vehicle would most likely get you killed or seriously hurt.
Your best bet is keep the vehicle moving, and if you hit someone that is their problem.
Drive erratic if possible to mess with anybody aiming and get the hell out of dodge.

Armed or not, the first thing to do is to try to get away, just as she did in that story. Trying to use a firearm in that scenario would not be wise as your attackers are, as you stated, surrounding you, too many angles of attack to guard against.

It is true, when surounded by armed people,even if you are armed,the best idea is to floor board it and get the heck out of dodge,and don’t try the go around any thing ,just get out as fast as posable!

The pedal goes to the floor, and the truck becomes the killdozer if they try to stop me. Escape, evade, survive!

I posted this comment in one of my other threads-
Depending on your vehicle, you could get stuck when driving over an object disabling your ride. I have a different view about gas on the floor. Observe, orient, decide and act. OODA loop

In my mind, it is escape however possible. Your best chance is using the vehicle to get away. At a minimum, use it to position in the best place possible.
If I do get stuck or vehicle disabled, only then would I consider getting out and fighting the rest of the way.
This is for the OP case of getting surrounded.

Yes, and she was driving a puny Mini Cooper.

Bullies on ATVs and motorcycles are becoming a thing lately.

This is a major concern I have with new vehicles with all the anti collision safety features. If I can’t get away and they are shooting at us is our car going to stop itself and make me and my family sitting ducks if I have no choice but to try and drive through them?
