    Great for Beginners

    A great book that will go along well with any courses on marksmanship or handgun safety. It gives a very good description of various handgun models in addition to providing valuable techniques on how to improve form and accuracy.

    Massad is the ObiWan of Gun Mastery

    This book contains some great information and Chapter Four - Competition as Training - has me thinking about starting to attend and compete some of those that are out there. My knock on the book to keep it from 5 stars is that there is a large amount of pictures in black & white. To reach younger audiences that are used to things in HD you have a to spend a few extra bucks and print on better paper in color.
