comment Third-Person Limited Narration or Third-Person Omniscient Narration?
I don't think you mean unreliable narration. What you mean is close first-person narration. An unreliable narrator is one that changes his story, lies and otherwise lacks credibility. Unless I'm really misunderstanding, what you're talking about is a GM who only tells the players what their PCs experience--not a GM that gives an unreliable description of what their PCs experience.

It's a fair point that #3 isn't as big an issue as I made it sound--you just need to keep distance between you and your opponent. Perhaps more distance than you would IRL, but that's fairly subjective. From what I'm reading here, the best way to simulate "gunpoint" would be #1. You surprise them, ready an action to shoot them, and go from there.

That's depressing. You'd think a game set in the modern era would be able to model this situation better than requiring PCs to take a level in an advanced class.

@mxyzplk, your interpretation is correct! There's a Bullet Points article on the WotC site that answers this exact question and the WotC staffer says the vehicle is, in fact, an attended object (wizards.com/default.asp?x=d20modern/bp/20040217a). I'm going to accept your answer now. Thanks for that.

There is a rule regarding unattended objects and saving throws. The question seems to be whether a vehicle is or isn't attended. So far I think it's unattended and mxyzplk thinks it is attended. Break the impasse!

Exteriors is a translation of "outsider", I'm guessing.

What is the language in the actual book? I'm still tracking down a copy.

Does auto fire ignore bonuses from cover? AFAIK a tank gives 100% cover.

Follow up question: if the driver makes his Drive check and the vehicle saves vs Autofire, would the occupants also be exempt from the effects of Autofire? Tricky, ain't it?

I like your Drive check idea, however I'm not sure I agree with you that a vehicle fits the definition of an attended object. Mainly because a vehicle provides cover for the occupants. Thus it's got less in common with an item, and more in common with a piece of scenery. On the other hand: Tower Shield! I'm undecided...
