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.
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.
Wow! This e-book does not format properly. Most chapter headlines do not display properly on the Nook Color. It does properly format on a PC. Also, as I have noticed in other e-books from Barnes and Noble, there are missing letters in many words. Also the proof reading is sloppy. This seems to be a major problem with these electronic books.
