We need to identify cover (as opposed to concealment) in Yellow, start moving toward it in early Orange and have acquired it before Red. Additionally, it is important that we utilize this cover efficiently.
In the following series of photographs, our shooter has seen a threat while walking to his car. Nearby, there are two dumpsters surrounded by a wooden fence. Let's see how he uses the available cover.
No Use of Cover - Here the shooter fails to employ available cover.
Poor Use of Cover - Here the shooters employs cover , but exposes too much of his body.
Fair Use of Cover - Here the shooter uses more cover, but still exposes his most vital area.
Great Use of Cover - Here the shooter properly minimizes his exposure. Notice that he does not crowd his cover.
