This book is divided into three basic sections:
1. How to create and execute eleven different drills that sharpen skills necessary to survive violent encounters
2. How to evaluate the results of these exercises
3. 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.
