Shooting Illustrated Asks: Is This Your Carry Load?
"Most self-defense shootings take place in poor light," Field Editor Bryce M. Towsley writes. "But, who among us has thought about muzzle flash being enough of a tactical problem to test our ammunition? We shoot and train during the day. Most ranges close at dusk and going into the woods to shoot at night will often invite a visit from a SWAT team."
"Towsley's article examines what causes muzzle flash and its different components," said Shooting IllustratedEditor-in-Chief Guy J. Sagi. "Then, he explains in layman's terms the chemistry employed to reduce it in modern self-defense loads while dispelling some urban myths. Even if everything goes right and you do make that first shot count, bad guys have been known to run in pairs-I personally don't want my carry load to handicap me at a time when the second perp may be closing in."
