The Tactical Shotgun
In his second book on tactical weapons, Suarez sets the record straight on the true role of the shotgun in combat. He shows you what you need to know to defend your home, family or business, including multiple hostiles, low-light situations, moving targets and more.
For home protection or battlefield use, nothing matches the shotgun's ability to lay down massive, deadly fire at close ranges.

US Combat Shotguns
When a soldier must face multiple opponents at close quarters, few weapons can match the effectiveness of the shotgun. From World War I to the War on Terror, the shotgun has been a devastating weapon in the hands of US troops. For urban combat, prisoner control and shipboard operations, it remains as deadly today as it was a century ago. This book examines various types, from the early combat shotguns through to the riot gun and trench gun versions used in World War l. So effective was the trench shotgun, the Germans complained it violated the "Rules of War?? as an inhumane weapon, and threatened to execute troops captured carrying one. More recently during the War on Terror, shotguns have been used to clear cave complexes in Afghanistan and buildings in Iraq, but especially to blow doors open during entries and searches. Featuring specially commissioned full-color artwork, this is the story of the origins, development and the use of the combat shotgun in US service, from the trenches of World War l, to the Korean and Vietnamese Wars and lately the cave complexes of Afghanistan.
Personal Protection Training
Some Comments from Len’s Students... “I want you to know that in my many years of being a student, you easily rank as the best teacher I have ever had. Your skill and patience has made me infinitely more comfortable with my weapons and myself. The next class you teach, I'll be there in a heartbeat. I'm sure you don't have to be reminded of the multitude of people you have touched and the positive impact you have had on firearms training overall.” Bob Patridge “Len has taught me to effectively and safely use a handgun and rifle and for that I will always be grateful. I look forward to the time I spend once or twice a week under his instruction. Len has created a wide range of firearms training programs out of virtually nothing and trained a sizeable and competent cadre of firearms instructors who, like me, greatly respects the man. He is engaged with his students and always approachable. Students who have shot much longer than me comment on his great depth of knowledge and ability to improve their shooting. He clearly loves to teach the material and his enthusiasm is contagious. He has a great sense of humor and makes his classes a lot of fun. But in spite of all of this the safety of his students is always his first concern.” Dr. Noel Pillman, MD “I am a retired police officer and a former police firearms instructor for over 20 years. I have been to numerous firearms training classes over the years but have not had any instructors more professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated to what they do then Len Breure.” Maurice Merabella "Len was my first real 'tactical' instructor a few years ago. He is a thorough, safe, and well versed instructor. His teaching style is unique in a way that clearly conveys lessons and makes them easy to understand for experienced shooters and novices alike. Len brings a wealth of prior "been there, done that" experience to the table that's an asset to his teaching, and is rarely found in many of the new instructors that have come to the arena since most states have enacted concealed carry laws. I continue to train with a variety of tactical instructors, and am always amazed by how much of the information Len taught me is still the foundation upon which I build." Mike VanMeeteren "I have been fortunate enough to receive numerous training courses that were being taught by Len Breure. In my opinion, Len is one of the best in the business! It is very rewarding to be able to learn from someone who has the experience and knowledge to take tactical training to the next level." Jim Bryant I first meet Len while taking my Minnesota Concealed Carry Course in 2005. Since that time I have taken every course that Len teaches. In my opinion Len is the consummate professional, who teaches with passion and an incredible degree of knowledge. I would strongly urge anyone interested in personal protection to take Lens courses.

Defensive Shotgun Mastering the Versatility Tactics for Repelling a Deadly Encounter
This book is written for anyone who understands that the lives of people we love can be irretrievably broken by a home invasion or other deadly force encounter. While many law abiding citizens insure their property, the protection of life against deadly force encounters is often ignored. The probability of becoming the victim of a home invasion or personal assault far outweighs the chances of becoming the victim of a fire. Yet, many people understand their options for protecting against fire better than they comprehend their alternatives for protecting life. As a professional who spends nearly every waking hour focused on protecting life or training others to protect life, I have written this book to present the modern shotgun as a viable defense option for personal safety. This book helps crack the code around the mystery, mystique and often miscommunication about the modern shotgun. It presents tactical applications written so the average citizen or trained operator can understand how to maximize the effectiveness of this incredible tool. The protection of one's life or the life of a loved one is a mindset. The mindset begins with awareness of how quickly one can become a victim of a deadly encounter, and how readily you can prepare to guard against the most dire outcome once awareness becomes part of your daily reality. The modern shotgun is a tool to help you accomplish your personal, team or agency's safety mission. After reading this book and practicing the recommended tactics, you will improve your situational awareness and, with training, you will significantly enhance your ability to protect life in the event of a deadly encounter. Please enjoy the reading and make time to master the techniques at the range. Stay aware, stay focused and stay safe; and may God continue to bless and watch over you and your families.
