As my car is out of commission, I initially found shooting from a moving vehicle bit of a challenge, especially ending up with power poles in what could have been a great shot. To overcome this I used what I have learn over the years as a gamer - lead the target.
Leading a target is the practice of aiming one's weapon ahead of his or her target so that the projectile will hit its mark. Over reasonably short ranges, leading is typically unnecessary when using firearms, but it is still relevant for sniping where the bullet may take a second or more to reach its target, as well as for weapons such as bows that use lower-velocity projectiles. It is generally unnecessary for guided projectiles, although the autonomous guiding mechanism may be designed to calculate a flight path to lead its targets on its own to ensure an interception.
