Self defense behind the wheel...

In light of the recent beating of an SUV driver at the hands of an enraged motorcycle mob, Oleg Volk offers some thoughts about firearms and self preservation if you're forced to fend off attackers while behind the wheel.

Among his notes:
Using small arms is often preferable to using the vehicle in a defensive fight, as many cars are designed to shut off in case of even a minor accident. For example, Ford Crown Victoria/Mercury Grand Marquis will turn off the fuel pump in case of even a minor rear impact. Running over bikes can cause tire damage which would make high-speed escape impossible or dangerous to the car occupants. Even a small impact at speed can cause the vehicle to lose control and skid out.
