If you get your knowledge of firearms from the media, instead of reality, you may be seriously inconvenienced, if not really, most sincerely dead.  TGACE is running a small series on tactics, and one thing to keep in mind is the difference between COVER and CONCEALMENT.

COVER is what bad guys cannot shoot through.  CONCEALMENT is what bad guys don’t shoot through because they don’t know you are there.  In my career, I’ve met several people who confused the two.  Not for long, however.


  1. And you don’t want to get up against cover, because a round or rounds into cover CAN shake you up. Also, if you stand back from both cover and concealment it’s easier to slice the pie if you have to.

  2. +1 Never a good idea to confuse the two and as NFO points out, stand away from cover when possible.
