When it comes to firearms training, nobody beats tactical consultant Louis Awerbuck, author of the highly acclaimed Training & Tactics column in S.W.A.T. Magazine. In this follow-up to his hugely successful 1999 compilation Tactical Reality, Awerbuck gives readers more food for thought on how to stay alive in today's increasingly dangerous world.
More Tactical Reality is a book about how to get the job done when the "job" involves firearms. It includes a decade's worth of thought-provoking columns dealing with both the mental & physical aspects of self-preservation. Its goal is to make you think about your training, your tactics, your equipment & your shooting philosophy, so that when the bullets start flying for real, you can perform. With characteristic wit & wisdom, Awerbuck discusses more than 40 timely topics, including why there is no such thing as an "advanced" gunfight, what makes a shooter "battle smart", the mechanics of shooting one-handed, when to shoot center of mass and when to go for the head shot, the fine art of balancing speed & accuracy, how to use shot placement to diagnose & fix shooting problems, whether the carbine is the right weapon for you, overpenetration, manhunting tactics & pitfalls, and much more.
In firearms training, practice does not necessarily make perfect. In fact, if your training is not realistic, it can do you more harm than good in a real gunfight. Make your training more realistic with Louis Awerbuck.
