Tactical Use of Low-Signature Weapons for Military and Police
by Mark White
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.
Mark White founded Sound Technology in the late 1980s, a research and development company devoted to flash and sound suppression and accuracy enhancement in military firearms. White holds a BS and an MS in industrial education and worked in two U.S. secret intelligence installations during the early 1970s, monitoring Soviet activities on land and in U.S. waters. He started writing professionally at the age of 16 and has written six books so far, including Tactical Use of Low-Signature Weapons for Military and Police and The Ultimate Ruger .10/22 Manual and User's Guide .
