Then you will to take cover!  Many police officers and individuals are injured or killed while standing mere feet from an object that if used correctly, would have stopped incoming projectiles.  In addition, many are injured or killed because cover was unnecessarily abandoned prior to the threat being neutralized or where individuals mistook concealment for cover.
