Gabe Suarez is one of the premier tactical firearms instructors in the United States, and has been for some time. His techniques for teaching both basic and advanced Weaponcraft are internationally recognized. In this volume, he covers the concepts of tactical pistol marksmanship that are relevant to both the beginner and the pro. He begins with a general overview of what makes a good defensive pistol, proper ammunition selection, and those accessories that will enhance the selected pistol. Then chapter by chapter, he guides the reader through safety, proper practice, dry firing, proper loading and unloading, and chamber checking.
He then delves into practical marksmanship techniques such as presentation from the holster, tactical reload, speed reload, and malfunction clearing. He then covers tactical issues such as 360 degree response, shooting in reduced light, close quarter combat, and failure to stop solutions. Finally, he gives the reader some excellent practice drills that will bring the novice to acceptable competency, or help the old hand knock the rust off. He emphasizes a subject that I agree with totally in that dry firing is your primary training tool, while live fire is just the test to see what you have learned.
This is an outstanding book that gets to the heart of each subject directly. I can highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to move beyond basic CCW graduation and desires to develop a training program on their own time.
