A good reference sized book about shotgunning and tactical applications. there could be more meat to this meal, but its a fair intro into this side of combat sports. Can pick up for a good price usually so why not? 12g is always out there!
If you do a lot of online research, you could probably not do with this volume.If you peruse YouTube a lot, you can pretty much skip this book.I guess due to the nature of the subject, video is just a superior media to communicate with.Sure, it's sometimes nice to have a physical, printed copy in your hands, but it just ends up being bathroom reading material.Advances in tech also makes some of the material covered obsolete...and it just gets worse as time goes on.It's not like this will end up being a collectors edition...?You would think that with the word "TACTICAL" in it's title that it would cover more...well, tactical.I guess that subject is a little too taboo for the typical consumer.Again, I default back to video being a much more superior means of communication when it comes to that subject matter.
Having breifly reviewed the book the portions I glossed through were well written and very appropriate in content. The shotgun is an awesome weapon and is highly underestimated as to its capabilities at close and intermediate ranges. overall I am impressed with what I have seen so far.Very good book overall and highly recommended for any person, law enforcement or civilian, novice or skilled, who wants to educate themselves about the shotgun and its tactical capabilities including the use of the ammunition available for different applications.
This is about the Kindle edition.As is often the case with Kindle editions the translation from paper to display is failure. That said I hope most of errors are Kindle specific otherwise this book incompetently edited to say the least.The content is idiosyncratic and sometimes seems like advertising. E.g. the glowing review of the 887 which is, at best, viewed as unfinished product by at least as many folks as like it and the gushing over Wilson Combat.The book is short, a quick read and largely absent the polemic posture taken by other authors in the self/home defense space. That's worth a star.
Great information. The author defines home and personal defense in a way all can understand. He also explains what defense is not as well as what it is and that is just as important. I've taken his book to heart and have referred to it many times since I bought it. Scott has a good understanding of human nature and demonstrates it often. I really think that anyone concerned about protecting their family should carefully read this book.Those of you who think you will be able to react in an appropriate manner because you know guns etc., etc. or have a Wyatt Earp syndrome you need to read this also as Scott points out your job is to survive, not just blow someone away.
This is a basic book with a overview of four brands of modern shotguns, Benelli, Remington, Mossberg and FHN. So in addition to ignoring Saiga, a very popular brand of tactical shotgun it also disregards the Turkish brands that have really gained in popularity in the last five years or so.It's a decent book but not a comprehensive work of tactical shotguns.
Ordered kindle version while on vacation and couldn't put it down. Lots of specifics and pros's and con's for shotgun use for self defense, sport or law enforcement.
Tis was just what I was looking for in an informational book on Tac Shoot Guns and more thanks for the price too
