GURPS Tactical Shooting
As Real as a Fistful of Steel!
The smell of black powder and cordite. The quick blinding of a muzzle flash. The deafening roar of a close-quarter gunshot. Forget the movies; true shooting is exciting enough for a thousand stories -- if you live long enough to tell the tale.
GURPS Tactical Shooting does for lifelike shooting what GURPS Martial Arts brings to real hand-to-hand combat -- it gives you all the information you need to bring realistic firearm combat to the gaming table:
Dozens of new rules, options, and possibilities for realistic shooting. Discover the different stances shooters use to give them an edge. Recognize the advantages and pitfalls of high-speed shooting. Train in the tactics that will keep you alive in ambushes or on urban battlefields. Learn who shoots first in a standoff!
Over 20 new perks for realistic shooters. Now you can be Cool Under Fire, Sure-Footed, or the Fastest Gun in the West!
