Overview

This work is an instruction guide for intermediate to advanced shooters. It addresses fighting with shoulder-fired weapons at ranges 0 through 600 meters. The book assumes the reader has mastered basic remedial techniques and is fully versed in firearm safety. In order to ensure the buyer’s skills match the difficulty of the included exercises, a video preview showing limited examples has been created. It can be found at www.holdingyourground.com or via other common sources for internet videos. A search of “Home Schooled Shootist” should generate several options.

This work is divided into three basic sections:

- How to create and execute eleven different drills that sharpen skills necessary to survive violent encounters

- How to evaluate the results of these exercises

- How to improve the operator’s capabilities

Covering topics ranging from sight pictures, on-range and off-range training techniques, and even rifle specific weight training, Shootist is intended for those who want to train at their own pace, using their own facilities. The drills are creative, unique and can be challenging. Detailed instructions are included on how to construct the various training tools and courses.

In addition, a bonus section covering nutrition and its impact on shooting skills is included. Written by Mike Adams - The Health Ranger, it addresses the seldom-discussed topic of how physical health can impact fighting skills.

Meet the Author

Joe Nobody (pen name for the author who wishes to keep his identity confidential) has provided systems, consulting and training for the U.S. Army, Department of Homeland Security, Office of Naval Research, United States Border Patrol as well as several private firms and government agencies which cannot be disclosed.

He is currently active in this area and for the security of his family and ongoing business, wishes to remain anonymous.

He has over 30 years of competitive shooting experience, including IPSC, NRA, and other related organizations. He has been a firearms instructor and consultant for over 30 years and holds the rights to a United States Patent for a firearms modification.

Joe initially became involved in helping private citizens "prepare" at the request of his students and clients. A conscientious instructor, he would always inquire as to why they wanted to learn certain skills or techniques and often the response was to prepare for more than just simple home invasion or self-defense. If you ask Joe what his greatest attribute is, he will tell you he is a "problem solver" and uses his formal education in Systems Engineering to this end.

"As the economy worsens, world tensions rise, and the modern media propagates bad news faster than ever before, more and more people want to prepare. I write because it allows me to reach more of the good folks who are concerned about their security. I want them to sleep better at night knowing they have a plan of defense should the 'Event' ever occur."

Author of the bestselling work, HOLDING YOUR GROUND, Joe's first book has been in the Amazon Top 100 and held the #1 postion in the Survival category almost exclusively since its release.
