Protecting Your Homestead: Using a Rifle to Defend Life on Your Property (Paperback)
Self defense in the country, or on a homestead, is different than it is in the suburbs. You have to worry about threats to both your family and your livestock, and the potential attackers include both two- and four-legged predators.
The distances are also greater. Instead of dealing with an intruder across the room, you might be dealing with a predator across the yard -- or across the field. And instead of you being the victim (or being in close proximity to the victim), the life you're protecting may be a lot closer to its attacker than it is to you.
This is where the defensive rifle comes into its own. The rifle is the tool to use when you need precision and power at a distance. This kind of defense -- which I call "perimeter defense" -- is what this book is all about.
Unlike most books written about the defensive rifle, Protecting Your Homestead looks at how to use a rifle beyond what is generally considered handgun range. Instead of teaching you how to use the rifle inside the home, Protecting Your Homestead shows you how to use it the way a rifle was designed to be used -- quickly, accurately, and at extended distance. There's a big difference between the two, and it's one most defensive shooting courses have ignored -- until now
In this book you'll learn how to pick the right rifle for the job of perimeter defense; the best and most flexible calibers; how to zero your rifle (and why it's important); choosing and using sights and optics; shooting positions from fastest to most stable; how to properly store, retrieve and move with your rifle to the threat; how to get to your first shot more quickly and accurately; and much more.
If you live in the country, or plan to, this is the defensive rifle book you need
