    I’m proud of this book.
    It is the result of over 15 years of development in a defensive shooting skill development program that is radically different from traditional programs in that it is focused on the potential application of shooting skills in a defensive event, not on range performance.
    This work was heavily influenced by the experiences and observations of many experienced instructors and the production (layout, graphics, images) by the USCCA Team is outstanding.
    I truly think this is the most approachable and understandable presentation of practical information on training for armed defense that has been published.

    Law enforcement and military are training to be 110% aware of surroundings, and recognize potentially unstable situations. That is reinforced by continuous training. Most people who carry are aware that they have an “insurance policy” on their hip, but have never experienced a situation where they had to respond. The delay in recognizing the threat can mean the different between victim or survivor. The book gives great insight into mentally preparing for an encounter, the awareness! Pictures show best positions for balance, accuracy, etc. Highly recommend to read and periodically review.

    I am an NRA TC and a USCCA instructor and have been teaching firearms since the early 80s. There are many excellent books out there, but there is usually a few things in them I just don’t agree with. This one there was all good stuff.

    The book has been a great read and I am learning a lot. I am new to shooting and this book is something I will use and re read. There are things I can use to help me train smarter and become more aware of my surroundings. I do not yet have a CCW permit but am thinking about. I know I need more training before I go down that path. This book is laying great ground work for me to use. The layout was also easy to follow as they show you with great pictures.

    I have already completed my first reading of this book and am midway through my second reading. It’s very well-written and illustrated and the information here is vital for anyone who carries a gun. I believe it should be required reading for all Conceal Carry Class Students. It would be a great idea to read the book before you even take the class. I will be recommending this book to all my friends because even if they never carry a firearm, the lessons will improve self awareness and perhaps keep them from getting into dangerous situations. Purchasing this book was money well spent.

    I have gone through three or four of these as gifts to new shooters and new concealed carriers. Can you think of a better way to help get them up to speed? Any time you get Rob Pincus and the USCCA working together you know the product is top rate.

    Through the years I have read many training books, however this one was the most concise and straight forward with real down to earth common sense advice. I could not recommend it more highly!

    Haven’t fully finished it. So far very valuable information!

    Love the book and it has great information in the book! Very easy to read and understand! Will order book two when I am done with this one!

    This book is one of the best books that I’m reading to date. I do believe that this book (DEFENSIVE SHOOTING) and the fundamentals is a excellent way for me to regain the knowledge of handling a weapon and the responsibility that comes with carrying said weapon(s). I have 37 years of rust to wash off in order for me to reach my goal of being an expert marksman. This book is only the beginning. If you can afford the book buy it or wait until they offer said book at a lower price then purchase the book, Its a good read!

    For some reason I found the book slow reading in the first few chapters then it hit pay dirt. Everything covered was true, excellent and educational. The material in this book should be read by every concealed carry holder. We all know how important training is and the techniques covered in this book go hand in hand with that.

  17. Gary (verified owner)

    This is a very intuitive book. I’m looking forward to implementing the technique scenarios.
