Quality training and top-grade gear are the two most important aspects of preparation for any scenario, and the American Handgunner Tactical 2015 Special Edition provides invaluable information on all things tactical. This issue highlights a variety of topics relating to tactical applications, featuring everything from shotguns and pistols to practical, effective training techniques that guarantee you’re equipped to protect yourself and your loved ones.
“The majority of the Special Editions my team and I produce are focused on giving the good guys the best info we can provide,” shares editor Sammy Reese. “This way they can make informed decisions on how to best prepare, train and become equipped for an event we hope never happens… but are prepared for if it does.”
The cover story for this Special Edition features a Heckler & Koch VP9 striker-fired pistol, which Dave Douglas finds offers all the best in comfort, accuracy and precision.
“The HK VP9 exceeded all my expectations. It was easy and very comfortable to shoot. The sights were easy to see and align even with old eyes like mine,” explains Douglas. “There were zero stoppages and zero malfunctions. I even purposely limp-wristed the gun trying to induce a type two malfunction and had no luck at all. It just kept on ticking. It never skipped a beat and devoured every one of the rounds.”
This 2015 American Handgunner Special Edition also features a review of Glock’s G41 and G42, a glimpse at STI’s Nitro 10mm, a look at how to get the best custom work on a local level, training for real life defense situations and Todd Burgreen’s examination of the SPHINX SDP Compact and KRISS Vector SDP Pistol.
A TMT Tactical Package highlights the Special Edition giveaway. The package includes a TMT Tactical-customized Springfield Armory XD-S 3.3-inch Single Stack 9mm, an Attacoa Wallet, Hornady RAPiD Safe and Emerson Patriot SF Knife.
