Hey what’s up everyone I’m instinct for a new training video. And last time we talked about body movements when handling gun and how to train it. For today we’ll take it a step further. Because today we’ll teach you how to run towards cover and how to use it properly.
Again we would like to thank instructor Delta, who used to be a special force at the Georgian military for sharing its knowledge with us. But as usual don’t forget to Like subscribe and hit and that bell button if you like our content, also make sure to visit the Reconbrothers.

Moving to cover means, getting there as fast as possible without getting shot and also breaking down your speed as fast as possible without running into your cover or falling. Let’s take the following scenario you spotted a target I want to get to cover as fast as possible.
If you’re using an AR if you’re going to use your dominant hand to put it against your shoulder this for when you reach cover you can select your fire mode and rack the gun if you haven’t done that already.
If you did that already you can just select the fire mode and fire at your target. Now if you’re using a pistol you want to keep it in your workspace around that neck area, also if you move to cover you can rack it if you haven’t done it already and then engage your targets.
When you’re running towards cover you want to break down your speed as fast as possible you’ll do this by using the whole surface area of your boots and making powerful steps into the ground. Now important to notice is that you’ll learn and adjust how much time and space you need in order to slow yourself down and leave yourself with enough room to work with.
The result should look like this. If you find yourself running to a low cover you can implement the kneeling technique we mentioned in our previous video. Now important to notice is that this running and braking technique works not only for running towards cover but also for any others running action.
Running towards cover is one step knowing how to use it is another so let’s get to that. The core principle of using cover is to show as less of your body as possible while taking accurate shots. Let’s talk about shooting next to cover while standing.
Now important to notice is the body position and more particularly the legs. Now for this you want the leading leg to be standing up front in order to push back if someone happens to push you. Also important is that your leading foot needs to stay in cover so they can’t shoot it.
Next up you want to use your upper body to lean over your foot so you can aim at your targets. Now you can use your supporting hands and place it against the wall, in order to get more stable shots and to not shoot your cover.
When doing so make sure your gun and your head are in line and that you don’t chicken wing in order to make the smallest silhouette possible. Now if you are for example a right handed shooter and you have a left side cover you will have to switch shoulders.
You can either shoot with your dominant hand or non-dominant hand but the important thing is that you keep making precise shots. If you are left eye dominant and you have a right side cover. You can either aim through your pistol by closing your left eye and shooting with your right eye.
Or showing more of your face and using your left eye to shoot at your targets. The next thing is shooting from cover while crouching, once again important to notice will be the positioning of the legs.
Here the leading knee will be the one touching the ground the rest stays the same. At last we have shooting over a low cover. For this you will place your support hand on top of the cover in order to have stable shots and to not shoot your cover.
Keep in mind that we can show you the stuff we learned from instructor Delta but you need to practice these things on your own in order to become better. Now it might be so that you are still making errors which you or your friends can’t see so for this it’s highly recommended to have a professional training session with a professional teacher like instructor Delta.
