I was forwarded this via email from the local 3 Gun match director Mark Meek. I think a good many people don’t realize how quickly a situation can escalate, and how hard it can be it identify the good guys from the bad guys. Many anti-gun people believe that their mantle of innocence is a shield from violence. That belief leads to impotent inaction which can cost them, or their loved ones their lives.
Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch posted up a video comparing the overall length of a shouldered shotgun to a pistol held at arms length.
I like Clint Smith’s teachings and while this is a valid point, I still prefer the pistol. Why?
The pistol can be fired from compressed shooting positions, something not so much possible with a shotgun.
I can better employ a pistol one handed then I could a shotgun. Try calling the police while holding a shotgun, opening doors, or carrying an infant.
Longarms have many advantages over handguns but they have their own downsides. You really need to pick the one that best fit your needs.
I’m not a fan of Beretta, but I find this ad of theirs awesome.
This video shows an a feature of the AK-12 that is rather nifty. A bolt release has been integrated right next to the magazine catch. It looks far quicker and handier then most bolt catch arrangements that have been put on AKs.
Dynamic Pie Concepts makes the ultimate combatives pistol.
