This is a straightforward, no-nonsense instructional book on pistolshooting; specifically competition practical pistol-shooting. Its take-no prisoners style holds nothing back, and eliminates any guess-work related to which techniques work and which ones are outdated. The best way to shoot is using the Isosceles Stance, fact or myth? What about the press-out technique? According to Professor Roger H. Lincoln, there are two rules for success in life: 1. Never tell everything you know. 2. Never tell everything all at once. In this book, Ben Stoeger laughs in the face of this great entrepreneur. Top shooters share a common knowledge which they have collected over the years from a plethora of sources; a knowledge that, in its whole, is far from common to the average shooter in that it is scattered. In this book, the top shooters such as Bob Vogel, Dave Sevigny, and Matt Mink collaborate with the author, Ben Stoeger, to compile the so-called “Grand Master secrets” into one location. The knowledge spans from marksmanship fundamentals to shooting on the move, and competition skills such as stage breakdown and managing match pressure. Finally, this book contains many little tips, drills, and exercises to help you improve your shooting.

Based on fifteen years of research, Glock is the riveting story of the weapon that has become known as American’s gun. Today the Glock pistol has been embraced by two-thirds of all U.S. police departments, glamorized in countless Hollywood movies, and featured as a ubiquitous presence on prime-time TV. It has been rhapsodized by hip-hop artists, and coveted by cops and crooks alike. Created in 1982 by Gaston Glock, an obscure Austrian curtain-rod manufacturer, and swiftly adopted by the Austrian army, the Glock pistol, with its lightweight plastic frame and large-capacity spring-action magazine, arrived in America at a fortuitous time. Law enforcement agencies had concluded that their agents and officers, armed with standard six-round revolvers, were getting "outgunned" by drug dealers with semi-automatic pistols. They needed a new gun. When Karl Water, a firearm salesman based in the U.S. first saw a Glock in 1984, his reaction was, “Jeez, that’s ugly.” But the advantages of the pistol soon became apparent. The standard semi-automatic Glock could fire as many as 17 bullets from its magazine without reloading (one equipped with an extended thirty-three cartridge magazine was used in Tucson to shoot Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others). It was built with only 36 parts that were interchangeable with those of other models. You could drop it underwater, toss it from a helicopter, or leave it out in the snow, and it would still fire. It was reliable, accurate, lightweight, and cheaper to produce than Smith and Wesson’s revolver. Made in part of hardened plastic, it was even rumored (incorrectly) to be invisible to airport security screening. Filled with corporate intrigue, political maneuvering, Hollywood glitz, bloody shoot-outs—and an attempt on Gaston Glock’s life by a former lieutenant—Glock is at once the inside account of how Glock the company went about marketing its pistol to police agencies and later the public, as well as a compelling chronicle of the evolution of gun culture in America.

This is Volume 2 in the Champion Shooting book series. The first volume Champion Shooting, a Proven Process For Success at Any Level, sets you on the path to improvement with the greatest impact for the effort you put in. It provides the foundation for a practice regiment and discusses all facets of training. One of the key aspects of practice discussed in the first volume is the notion of dry-fire. So we took this concept and elaborated on it with a focus on how to fit this method of practice into your overall regimen.Whether it's USPSA, IPSC, IDPA or Steel Challenge practical shooters always seem to be talking about dry-fire. It seems to be generally accepted that dry-fire is an important means of improving your shooting technique. There are many schools of thought pertaining to the use of dry-fire techniques as a means of improvement. Just about everyone thinks it is important, but most people do not seem to implement it into their regular training regimen. Many people use dry-fire extensively for a short time and then stop doing it. We are not quite sure why people stop training through dry-fire although there are many thoughts around this - it can be boring, mundane, not realistic, etc.This book will help you gain an understanding of the following myths concerning its use as a training technique: * You have heard that it's boring? This book will disprove that.* You will not learn anything by using it as a practice method, and you won't get any faster even if you do? The drills within this book will disprove that.* You do not know what to practice? This is a book filled with practice concepts.
