Well I am not sure about that statement! Last fall after I got home from the hospital following major surgery my wife was not feeling very good either and didn't want me to try to turn the boat upside down and lift it onto the dock which I had already pulled up on shore by myself, so I called the neighbor to see if he could stop by and help me. I was totally surprised the next morning while I was having my breakfast coffee to see him and another young lady scooting across the yard heading for the dock. The young lady was his oldest daughter who had flown in from Anchorage for a surprise visit. She surprised them both when she walked in the door on them.
She's reloading behind an engine block and tire-he's standing behind (at most) two car windows and doors. If the bad guy in question is using anything bigger than a BB-gun, this guy could be in for a world of hurt, with apparently a partial torso and head visible, at least (over the front windshield). Yes, give her cover fire-but shouldn't he at least consider moving to behind the rear tire and shooting just above the trunk, so he has a little more cover, and to break the bad guy(s) attention away from his partner who is reloading? (Then again, if I'm providing my SO cover fire, I might be just as stupid in the moment, to give her better odds.....)
