Personal Defense 2017 Special Edition

A Delicate Balance

Even though the title of this Special Edition refers unambiguously to the subject of personal defense, there’s more to the subject than specific gun types, models, and calibers. After all, we’ve always been more about the “how to” rather than the “what’s new.”

The 2017 Personal Defense issue is more of a reference source than a catalog. You’ll discover helpful resources you can put to use right away.
