As  responsible instructors we believe that shooting is a constantly  evolving skill, and there are always new and different ideas out there  on how to do things. Also, when you take on the responsibility of  carrying or owning firearms, you must be knowledgeable of the different  psychological effects that armed confrontations may have on the human  mind. The following is a list of books aimed at equipping you with the  "tools for your tool box" on different shooting techniques, and  information on the effects of confrontations. We offer this list freely  in the hopes of broadening your approach to shooting and defensive  skills, and with the understanding that there is no "one way to do  things." We don't agree with everything taught in every page, but we owe  it to you to make you aware of other information available to you.  Also, we as instructors, are eternal students, and have read and can  recommend these books to you for reference.  We have also included links  to some major firearms manufacturers for your convenience.    
Each  of the target audiences may require different information, therefore  there are two separate lists.  Click on the category that applies to you  for the information we feel would be beneficial to you.  
There is  no substitute for hands-on training. You can't just pick up a book and  be an expert. These resources are meant to augment your training and  expertise. "Finger straight, and off the trigger..." Happy reading.
