With the recent release of The Zombie Shooting Guide: Survival Training for the Worst-Case Scenario, author Mark Greenman has provided zombie enthusiasts with one of the year’s most entertaining and informative new survival guides! The book is absolutely jam-packed with practice drills, training techniques and helpful tips that raise it far above many of the zombie books and manuals plaguing bookstore shelves today.
The author’s intimate knowledge of firearms, weapons and military history proves insightful. But it’s his firsthand experience with Force on Force training, also known as “reality-based training”, that drives the concept behind The Zombie Shooting Guide.
It was this experience with Force on Force that taught me that I was training in a totally unrealistic fashion. For shooting those dangerous paper targets on a sunny Sunday afternoon, standing still and using my sights worked great. But in the semi-darkness of the Naval hospital, all my attention was on the person trying to shoot me, and not the little piece of plastic on the tip of my pistol.
By safely combining a variety of fun zombie-themed exercises with legitimate firearm instruction, Greenman has taken some extremely successful training methods and simply modified them for use during the inevitable zombie apocalypse!
In addition to the practical advice, The Zombie Shooting Guide also contains step-by-step photos, a number of practice targets and a free short story called “30 Cities.” It’s the perfect Christmas gift for beginners and expert marksmen alike. So don’t hesitate to pick up a copy for the holidays, because once the zombies attack… it will be too late!
