Rob Pincus believes this is a misunderstood concept in defensive shooting and intends to clarify why in rifle training courses, we shoot through ports in a barricade. It is not related to why it’s done in competition shooting. The first reason is a skill-based concept: to help the shooter understand the height-over-bore (mechanical offset) issue. The second is for close-quarters shooting inside a home or building, outside around vehicles or any kind of structure, or when using cover. Rob sees each port not as two dimensional but as a three-dimensional tube representing the path the bullet will take as it moves, for example, across a bedroom. Rob explains and demonstrates.
