Will you still trust your aim after having been shot multiple times?
If I was accompanying my wife, I imagine she would be the target. But you never know what might happen. Again, that would have to be a decision made at the time...but any wounds I might receive that still allow me to draw my weapon will probably allow me some ability to aim. I'd expect raw horror at the situation to mess me up more than something like a broken rib or a gut shot. Shooting out a rear window to make the car easily identifiable may still be an option.
The point being is that anyone facing such a potential situation needs to at least consider what they'd do. That puts you several steps ahead of someone just reacting without a plan or the tools to do it.
