    more from this reviewer

    This book is a great step forward in understanding marksmenship.

    I was very worried due to the a review of this book but was happily suprised. This book is full of detailed infornation to improve my shooting skills. You should have some base knowlegde to pull from. I strongly recommend this book. The facts are presented from the basic and move into the finer skilles used to be a great shoot. There is enough detail to keep you in the know and the ability to develop tables is clearly explained.
    If you are just learning about shooting you will not need to shoot 1000 yards but if you have some experience and would like to learn a bit more get this book. I am only writing the review to be sure that you do not take the poor review of this book for fact. The fact is I love shooting and it is clear that the authors do as well. They desrve a full five start. enjoy...

    Great with Rifles, not so much with pens

    This book had the makings of a well written and informative instructional book. However, it wasn't written with the reader in mind.

    Many aspects on the topic of shooting are covered but several lack detail. Certain important aspects of the subject only get a paragraph devoted to them. Furthermore, lots of shooting jargon is used and left undefined, leaving the reader lost.

    Finally, the book is very dry. Even instructional books can have some voice and character to them. This book is written by two shooting buddies but from reading it, it seems more like a manual given to soldiers and said "here, read this,".

    Not all is lost though. I did learn some on the basics of long range shooting, like how to take into account wind. Though, in the end for my money more depth should have been offered.
