Just picked up the first couple of these books to have something to read. It was my understandint that Jerry Ahern was a respected and knowledgable gun writer. I am about 200 pages into the first book of the series and am appalled at the stupidity of the information. Nukes explode, and within 2 hours 70% of Americans are dead, and many are dead from radiation poisoning? The whole West Coast drops into the ocean and the deadly tidal wave has already formed and wipedout much of the rest of it? That quickly? Really, that quickly? No one ever talks, but SHOUTS, SCREAMS, ..... The President commits suicide to keep the US from surrendering? Really? Even the gun information is ridiculous. Main charecter is super badass that has mastered everything in the world, including medical school? Carrys two six shoot .45 autos into extreme combat with a back of of a full-sized .357 revolver? WOW! I have yet to read a single thing about survival. Did he really publish 20+ volumes of this stuff?
