DEAD-ON ACCURACY. TOP-NOTCH PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY. These are the things we all look for in our firearms, whether we use them for self-defense, duty, hunting or competition. In this special precision issue of Tactical Life, our content creators have zeroed in on the latest the shooting world has to offer for those who want to reap every ounce of accuracy and performance from their guns, gear and training.

The Plasan Yagu lightweight armored vehicle injects a previously unimagined capability into the special operations battlespace. Combining high mobility, air transportability and formidable firepower, the Yagu can transport special operators to their area of operations and then protect them while maneuvering downrange. Offering amazing capabilities at a modest weight and relatively reasonable price, the Yagu could revolutionize the way modern spec-ops warriors travel. Today’s cutting-edge Yagu harkens from a fascinating evolutionary family. PREVIOUS WHEELS In the early 1930s, the U.S. Army began experimenting with the concept of a bantamweight truck for use by scouts and raiders who were the early 20th century predecessors to today’s special operations forces. The resulting vehicle stemmed from a laborious developmental process and became a ubiquitous part of Allied forces in all combat theaters during World War…

During the past 10 years, I’ve traveled the country attending various training courses involving every firearm you might field on duty or in a self-defense role (and a few you wouldn’t). The instructors have included combat veterans, longtime officers, world-class competitors and a few folks working with some of the most elite foreign military and anti-terrorist units. I’ve attended major academies and local training entities alike. So I’ve developed a broad understanding of what is taught and who teaches it. This gives me some healthy skepticism, especially because you can’t walk a block without tripping over a dozen “expert instructors” these days. But Buck Doyle of Follow Through Consulting is different. It’d be hard to find someone with more “been there, done that” experience, and he lives what he teaches—techniques he…

WHAT DOES PERFORMANCE MEAN TO YOU? Although it’s subjective, I’d be willing to bet that your thoughts went to something with higher capabilities than most. Perhaps you envisioned something that looks fast. Maybe you thought of a particular firearm or even a sports car. As gun enthusiasts, most of us are drawn to both. It’s like a mandatory part of our code. To me, Porsches are visually irresistible. They seamlessly combine both subtle and bold lines into a highly capable, focused and functional package. It appears complex yet simple and complete—not in your face like a Lamborghini or Ferrari. No, a Porsche is sophisticated, pairing subdued styling and exceptional performance together with plenty of modern flare. Porsche’s automobiles are continually evolving with new technological advancements and proprietary technologies. But in all of that,…
