Tactical marksmen are employing low-signature firearms-fitted with one or more devices to reduce both the sound and flash of the gunshot- with ever-increasing frequency around the globe. When used with subsonic ammunition, a suppressed low-signature rifle presents the ultimate in covert stealth for a wide range of missions. Reading Tactical Use of Low-Signature Weapons for Military and Police is like getting an exclusive look at the notebook of one of the eminent experts on subsonic ammo and cutting-edge suppressors, Mark White. In this slim book, White dispels the myths about silencers and reveals the true nature of firearm suppression, including an illuminating examination of subsonic ballistics, a topic that usually gets short shrift in terms of research and development. In clear and precise terms, he explains the science behind the use of subsonic ammunition and suppressed weapons for both military and law-enforcement applications. With the right equipment and subsonic ammunition, a bullet discharged from a suppressed .308 rifle can be quieter than an arrow shot from a bow. Find out for yourself how professionals determine the best firearm and ammo combinations for suppressed fire.
