    Driveway Holdup (An Armed Citizen Scenario)

    When I design stages for IDPA matches, I like to use real life incidents as the basis for the scenarios. The Armed Citizen column in the NRA Journals is a good source for incidents.

    Even if you don't shoot competitively, I think setting up scenarios for your personal practice is a good thing to do periodically, if you have access to a place to shoot them. Shooting a scenario is a lot different than just placing a target downrange and shooting away at it.

    I wouldn't use a real car for this one, just some kind of barrier to give you a feel for the distances and positions.

The gunman didn't fare as well. He expired a short time later in a nearby vehicle. Reports indicated he had a lengthy criminal record that included robberies, burglaries and weapons charges.
