    In vehicle and draw training

    What are the thoughts of everyone about using blanks for training for a car jacking scenario? I'm referring to drawing from a buckled and seated position in a vehicle and firing.

    Is there a better method?

    The only worse method I can think of is using live rounds. I have discharged a firearm within a vehicle exactly once, and that was enough.

    IMO there is a better method, that is find a school that teaches what you want...Its intense to say the least. However, it is a skill that I believe should be learned...

    On second thought, perhaps in a convertible with the top and windows down...

    Yes. Airsoft, with a gas-powered replica of your handgun, such that the replica fits your holster and lets you use all your standard equipment.

    Get a paint-ball mask that will completely protect your eyes from ricocheting rounds.

    The colored Shoot-n-See targets work fine with Airsoft pellets.

    Get to a class. All the drills and training in the world won't help if you're training wrong. You need someone to show you the proper way then critique what you're doing. There are techniques that work and many that don't. Remember that you'll likely be shooting across your body.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    taking a defnsive handgun class & ensuring the instructor covers this scenario seems like the best method ... or start shooting IDPA matches ....
