Though many people only consider shotguns or handguns for home defense and close combat, there may come a time when a rifle is the only weapon available. The Box O’ Truth offers some advice on shooting rifles and other weapons in close quarters.

Several advantages for each type of weapon were discussed.
I’d like to expand on one of those of the rifle, i.e., increased accuracy potential.
