Why you might need it

Tactical Pistol Shooting: Your Guide to Tactics That Work is a great book and worthwhile investment to improve your shooting skills. The author leads one of the top training and protection services in the world, and his book is recommended by police officers, professional security, and soldiers. If you could only read one book about firearms, and you need to learn tactics and techniques that could save your life, this is it. This book can help get you in the mindset needed to survive a gunfight. It details the use of the pistol in combat marksmanship from basic levels through advanced life saving techniques. What saves lives in a gun fight is doing the basics well, and this is one of the best books out there for teaching the fundamentals. It is an unfortunate reality that the police cannot usually protect us until after something bad happens, as they are mostly reactive and spend most a lot of their time responding to criminal activity. Law Enforcement cannot be everywhere, and everyone really should to learn how to protect themselves and others that they love from those individuals in the world who do not abide by laws and have no values or sense of right or wrong and who might kill or injure you, your family, or friends without remorse. 

Sample Amazon Feedback

"This is a absolutely great book for basics of pistol craft. Includes definitions, proper mindset, eye and hand posture instructions, and everything a person would need to pick up a handgun for the first time. I picked up a couple other books looking to fill in the gaps in my knowledge and troubleshoot some issues but found them either too specialized or just lacking in actual content. This book was exactly what I was looking for."

"....Great fundamental presented by a guy who has been there. There are lots of guys who teach, but not so many that have actually been in real combat situations with real people shooting back. That makes all the difference to me.  The photos are excellent and there are lots of them. Photos are much more effective than excessive narrative when teaching technique (i.e. how to hold the pistol, body alignment, etc). I'm learning a lot from the book...."

"It teaches things in plain English and is easy to follow. The things thought in this book are the same techniques that I have learned in some very expensive classes and courses!"

"Must read for pistol owners.  Fantastic explanation of the fundamentals of combat marksmanship. Relevant to mil, le, and civilians carry."

"Great book, well written. Great for the beginner, good for intermediate. Good if your teaching / training someone else too. LOTS of photos."

"Excellent Book.  This book covers all the basics and is my go to book to show others and recommend to others. this is a basic book on gun handling without all the self promoting bull in other books. Its up to you to practice what is in it and work on it. Not saying other books aren't good just saying this is paired down to what you need to handle a firearm safely with confidence and precision. If there would be one book this would be it. I have also bought this book and have given it to others to have, can't recommend it enough."

"....this isn't a book on how to shoot IPSIC or some other competitive gun-game sport. It's on real-world, self-defense combat shooting with a semi-automatic handgun. The focus is on the physical movements and techniques that are effective to that end. Lawrence does not discuss the psychology of self-defense or the psychology of shooting. He does not discuss the legal issues of self-defense or the topic of concealed carry. There is nothing here about retaining your firearm during a physical assault nor about unarming an assailant. This is a single-topic book: tactical pistol shooting, tactics and techniques that work."

"Hands down one of the best."
