Numbers don't lie; more and more women are purchasing guns and learning to shoot While shooting used to be a male-dominated sport, women across the country have begun discovering that a trip to the range not only is relaxing, but also brings with it a sense of strength and empowerment. "Taking Your First Shot" is an introductory guide perfect for either those stepping out onto the range for the first time or those looking to brush up on their skills. Author Lynne Finch coaches women on the decision to learn to shoot, how to find formal training, selecting and purchasing a handgun, defensive versus practice ammunition, storing and caring for your gun, and concealed carry options.
Along with learning the shooting basics, Finch also teaches readers the importance of situational awareness and the basics of self-defense. Sometimes a gun isn't always an answer, and it's important to have a proportional response to the situation. Finch begins with teaching readers how to become aware of their surroundings, what to watch for, and how to respond. From there, she goes on to define proportional response and why carrying pepper spray, a kubotan, or even a whistle can make all the difference.
Learning to shoot is a personal decision, but with the proper training and practice, shooting can become both an enjoyable and liberating sport.

Every year millions of sportsmen and women take to America's fields and forests equipped with some type of shotgun. Millions of others participate annually in shotgun sports such as skeet, trap and sporting clays. In Modern Shotgunning, Dave Henderson gives readers a nuts-and-bolts look at modern shotguns. He explains chokes, stocks, barrels, and optics, as well as cleaning and safety practices. He also discusses how to choose the appropriate shotgun, shotgun games, gun fit, hand loading, and building your own specialty guns. Henderson doesn't write above his readers either, offering plainly written advice based on years of experience in the field and at the range. He writes without boast that in a year he probably shoots more rounds than do most hunters in a lifetime. Neither is Henderson leaning toward the heavy-wallet crowd, for he knows the average hunter may not care for or cannot afford two-thousand-dollar shotguns, souped-up slug guns or optics. He offers tips for the budget-conscious, such as creating a cleaning rod from a soft pine dowel with a bicycle handlebar grip on one end and using Bounty paper towels rolled to bore diameter as a cleaning patch. Modern Shotgunning is ideal for beginners but not to be overlooked by veterans.

The second part is where things get fun and where readers will find instructions on topics such as basic marksmanship, grip and aiming, breath control, trigger squeeze, techniques of firing, target engagement, combat reloading techniques, coaching, and safety, among others. Finally, the appendixes include a thorough explanation of the U.S. Army qualification courses and training schedules.

This compact guide will tell you everything you need to know about training with an M9 or M11 pistol. Loaded with illustrations and charts, this handbook shows as well as tells how to be the best pistol shooter in the Army.
