Pistol Shooting Drill - Shooting from a Barricade a critical task for a Law Enforcement Firearms Training Program

In this blog post we will discuss pistol shooting from a barricade. This pistol shooting drill is something that should be incorporated in every law enforcement firearms training program. There are some things you need to consider if you are using a red dot sight on your pistol. Just like with a carbine your sights might be clear but your muzzle could be on the barricade or piece of cover, thus causing injury to the shooter.
