LH, wouldn't it be simpler to remove the windshield (windscreen)? Or mount the gun under the hood of the car and fire it remotely from inside the passenger compartment?

Chong' is following some baddies and they start shooting at him. He lines up the hood and presses the button on the handle of the emergency brake and BAM! BAM! Shots from the two 454 Casull* caliber revolvers mounted under the hood (bonnet) fire through holes under the hood (bonnet) ornament and crash into the baddies' car! BAM! BAM! Two more leaden slugs of death and the front car skids off the road and (for some reason) explodes into a ball of fire! Chong' pulls over, sees there are no survivors, takes a bad of bank loot that was ejected from the smoldering wreck, and drives off sucking on a Scotch-flavored lollipop.

*.454 Casull: the Casull round uses a small rifle primer rather than a pistol primer, because it develops extremely high chamber pressures of over 60,000 CUP (copper units of pressure) (410 MPa), and needs a significantly stronger cup than a pistol primer. The .454 Casull is one of the most powerful handgun cartridges in production. It can deliver a 250 grain (16 g) bullet with a muzzle velocity of over 1,900 feet per second (580 m/s), developing up to 2,000 ft-lb (2.7 kJ) of energy.
