Info on becoming a competent & knowledgeable defensive shotgun or rifle owner. 254 pgs.
The Farnam Method of Defensive Shotgun and Rifle Shooting is about the defensive use of shotguns and rifles in a domestic protective environment. This book provides the most up-to-date information regarding the types of defensive shotguns and rifles, as well as the tactics for using them.
A shotgun is powerful, intimidating, versatile and incredibly lethal. Because of its size, fierce reputation and the characteristic posture associated with its use, the shotgun also has more deterrent value than does a handgun.
The advantages a rifle gives us are: power, profile, range, penetration, quick recovery time and a relatively large reserve of ammunition. A person armed with a military rifle is very intimidating, particularly when it is obvious that he knows what he is about.
John Farnam's years of experience in the military as well as law enforcement have allowed him to gain first hand knowledge of what works most reliably in real-life lethal force confrontations. He provides information that will enable you to preserve your own life and the lives of family members, friends or the public in your charge, when facing an imminent, substantive and felonious physical threat by a criminal or criminals.
