Behavioral cover, although not often trained, is a tactic that may just save your life in a last-ditch survival improvisation. Rob Pincus explains how simply raising an object to your face, be it your hand, a book or a briefcase, can be enough to delay your enemy’s shot. This happens because we naturally see the object that is placed in front of us as an obstruction, and we want to avoid hitting it. So your attacker will spend the extra time and energy to aim around our behavioral cover so that he can take a clean shot. Hopefully, this cover will cause the attacker to miss or give you time to access your defensive firearm.
