According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a marksman is someone skilled at shooting at a mark or target. This is a book for hand-gunners who want to be marksmen.
Handgun Marksmanship is a learner’s guide to shooting straight and hitting what you aim at. Each chapter is a separate lesson designed to achieve clear instructional goals. Topics are explained in clear, aw-shucks language. Step-by-step instruction makes it easy to grasp material quickly. Key points are reinforced with practical exercises.
As you progress through the book, you will learn to:
* Choose and use a target for marksmanship training.
* Assess mechanical accuracy of your gun and ammo.
* Set a good training goal, based on gun, ammo, and shooter skill.
* Identify the grip and stance that work best for you.
* Translate dry-fire practice to improved performance on the range.
* Measure shooting accuracy and precision objectively.
* Diagnose flaws in technique, based on bullet-hole patterns.
* Test corrective strategies to solve performance problems.
Each lesson is geared toward skill development and continuous improvement. By the end of the book, you should be able to hit 80% bullseyes (4 shots out of 5) from a distance of 7 yards. If you think this is easy, try it. This is a significant achievement with a handgun, beyond the skills of most shooters. But, with a little bit of the right training, it is well within your grasp.
There is nothing hard about developing handgun marksmanship skills. But there are a few moving parts. This book focuses on the most important parts, so you can quickly acquire the skills you need to hit the bullseye (almost) every time.

About the Author
Harvey Berman lives in Atlanta, where he earned a bachelors degree in Industrial Engineering and a PhD in Psychology, both from the Georgia Institute of Technology. After graduation, Harvey spent nearly two decades applying math and statistics skills to real-world problems, mainly in the areas of market research and strategic planning. In 2000, Harvey retired and, with time on his hands, developed StatTrek.com, an educational website that helps people teach themselves statistics. Harvey's first book, "Flexbox for Responsive Web Design," emerged from his web development experience. Then, late in life, he bought a small revolver. That led to Harvey's second book, "Handgun Marksmanship". In his spare time, Harvey plays golf and bridge - both poorly.
