Joe Nobody is at it again, turning out books like a printing press. I’ve been a fan of his books since the beginning. His latest book, The Home Schooled Shootist, is another win. While not as “universal” a book as Holding Your Ground or Without Rule of Law, in that it’s more specific to shooting a carbine than preparing for general, post-SHTF defensive combat scenarios. Prepper Press, the publisher, sent me a copy for review. Scope it:
Now, if you’re already a well-skilled shootist, familiar with the many training tactics, this book probably isn’t for you (though you still might learn new approaches and have it prove worthwhile). If you’re someone short of expert skill, someone like me, this book could offer you a whole slew of information, information you’re not going to find in any military manual. The content even covers many ideas you won’t get exposed to in an instructional course you could pay for.
The information in this book is well layed out, easy-to-read and descriptive, offering pictures when pertinent. Witness a few interior pages:
What exactly does this book include that will make it worth your while for carbine training? Subjects like:
- Off-range Trigger Time (ways to train at home, off-range)
- Point of Aim
- Establishing the Ballistic Coefficient
- Mag Dumps
- Shooting and Cover
- Ballistics and Reloading
The list goes on, but perhaps the best way to get a feel for what’s involved in this bad dude book is to watch a few of the book’s promotional videos. The first one has footage of Joe and a shooter employing some of the training techniques they describe. Check them, check them now!
While we’re on this subject, check my other reviews of Joe Nobody’s books:

BTW: Remember my Win a FREE Bar-ricade post? The Bar-ricade maker noted that many of the commenters expressed concerns about the amount of glass they have in their homes. He suggested those individuals consider “Window Security Films.” I can’t embed the YouTube video here of people shooting glass with the film applied, but click here to watch it.
