Action story books have always been the readers’ favorite through the years. In all action stories or movies, the fight scene is the most awaited part. However, lack of knowledge about the weapons used may compromise the whole quality of the story. J. Daniel Sawyer is one of the authors who write very realistic action scenes because of his wide knowledge about guns.
To come up with a more realistic fight scene, listed below are several advices from J. Daniel Sawyer:
- First-hand experience gun-handling is highly recommended. Writing about guns and how to use it became easy for Dan since his father worked for the military. Dan was taught about guns and all safety measures regarding it at a very young age.
- Revolver and pistol are entirely different types of guns. A revolver is has a revolving cylinder wherein bullets are loaded while a pistol has a removable magazine wherein bullets are loaded. The only similarity is that pistols and revolvers are both handguns. To know more about guns and rifles, be sure to visit http://riflejudge.com/.
- Choose the weapon that best suits the character. Make sure to take into account how the personality and background of the character was built in the story. Military men and civilians own different kinds of weapons. Select the gun that works for the character. Checkout guns at Riflejudge.com.
- Know the effects that a weapon may produce. Bullets have the capacity of go through objects and travel a long way. Using a piece of wood for defense against a bullet shot will not be effective. A bullet can either bring two types of damage – hydrostatic shock wave or a puncture wound. A puncture wound does not bleed as much, except if a main blood vessel is damaged. It may seem to heal quickly because of its appearance but may cause not enough blood flow to fight bacteria and infection. A hydrostatic shock wave is the gruesome damage usually shown in movies. It drives all the blood out of the wound and floods neighboring organs.
- Know how a shooter behaves when handling a gun. Blood supply at the nervous systems decreases once the adrenalin rush increases. This explains losing control of motor when a person feels nervous. Men’s adrenalin rush react faster than women do. This whole process is the reason for training gun men under pressure and with additional environmental stressors. Automatic system should be trained to respond faster and accurately regardless of the situation. Vision is all the more substantial since shooting at the wrong target may create lethal injury.
- Identify things that can by the book and what can only be learned through real experience. Although having an actual experience of using a gun is the best, referring to a bookabout particular information may be sufficient. These are the following; terminologies with regards to weaponry, history of guns, precautionary practices, different strategies of handling guns, laws and regulations about gun use and gun owning, weapon manual and maintenance, and a lot more.
