    Has anyone heard of this newsletter?

    I received an advertisement for a monthly newsletter called "Weapons & Tactics" in the mail last week and found it interesting enough to order it. Has anyone heard of this particular newsletter and have any feedback? They are out of Las Vegas.

    Possibly

    Did they offer something about winning a free flashlight, if so I think I got the same stuff too. I remember a similar type flyer from a comany in vegas offering a free flash light. I think I stuffed the flyer in a folder I keep on that stuff, if if matches up and you subscribe let me know how you like it.

    That's them. The heading of the letter said "How to stay safe in a dangerous world" which is what caught my attention. They were giving away a Surefire Z2 (yeah like I will win anything). Although I am a sucker for magazines, I am not normally that attracted to newsletters. Their material did interest me enough, though that I ordered it. When I get it I will post my impression of it.

    And I haven't found a website for them but I found this bit of information regarding the newsletter and the company that publishes it:

    Title: Weapons and Tactics for Personal Defense
    Editor: James Bartel
    Publisher: Personal Defense Group, Inc.
    Read and Reviewed by: C. Allen Reed (Feb04)

    Weapons and Tactics is a monthly newsletter with short articles for the concerned citizen and martial artist. The articles focus mostly on how to plan for and deal with violent crime, rather than how to use martial arts techniques.

    This is a very good newsletter in that it teaches many of the philosophical and tactical concepts that most martial arts magazines do not. I would recommend any civilian concerned with dealing with violent crime subscribe to Weapon and Tactics and share it friends and family.

    I subscribed for about six months a few years ago. I was dissapointed... mostly stuff to get you to buy more stuff... it may have improved though.

    I read Gabes News Letter, very good and covers much ground.

    +1.....Not a magazine...It's a news letter with lots of ads. Very disappointing for me. If you are absolutely new to the defense role and looking for a place to get started, it may have information you can use. As recall it was expensive as well.

    Suarez' news letter is 10 times more informative. I don't recall paying anything for Suarez' letter.

    Thumbs down Weapons & tactics News Letter

    Yes I have heard of the publication and until today I was ready to share it with just about anyone that wanted the straight skinny on what ever subject the publication was discussing. Then came Volume 10 Number 2 Feb. 2006, which had a article about “Watch out for needles when pumping gas.” Well for some reason I decided to check this out for myself and found that this is apparently a hoax that has been around the internet since 2000. I found out that on June 20th, 2000 the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department issued a press release declaring it a hoax and stating that the author, Capt. Abraham Sands was not at the Department.

    I have written the publisher and directed that my name be taken off their mailing list immediately and that no further publications were desired, even if I had remaining months on my subscription.

    I am both a Texas Certified CHL Instructor & NRA Instructor so I can’t afford to be relying on sharing publications that print this type of garbage with my current & former students.

    Sorry for the rant but thought you’d appreciate the info.

    I got literature in the mail on it, but I passed because I'm already spending way too much on firearms' related stuff, and my income is about 40% less now than it used to be.

    Everybody has a niche. Nobody can do everything. May Suarez prosper in his niche.
    However, SOF Mag had a pretty sober report after taking some of his classes. I doubt I'll be going there.
