"Here, point and shoot."" These words from his father propelled Buz Fawcett's shooting success as a child, gaining him a number of High Gun awards at local trap clubs by the time he was fourteen. Because of his success, his father awarded him his grandfather's Model 1912 Winchester, which he mastered, even though it "kicked the whey" out of him.
However, his amazing shooting abilities as a kid didn't follow him into adulthood. Fawcett entered into what he calls his "Dark Ages" of shooting after accepting an associate editor position at" Sports Afield" in New York City, where he had to read and edit what other gunmen were writing about shooting techniques. Eventually, he took a position as editor of "Guns & Ammo" magazine, located in California. He soon found himself in a position where he could shoot as much as he liked.
After a number of years and extensive research into shooting methods, Fawcett rediscovered his talents through a technique called "Instinctive Shooting." This research and a lot of practice finally led to teaching a workshop on instinctive shooting to help others become adept at this miraculous "point and shoot" method. "Instinctive Shooting" is Fawcett's guide for other gunmen, describing exactly how and what needs to be done to achieve the ultimate shooting instincts. Practical and hands-on, the book covers such topics as determining your dominant eye, achieving proper shotgun fit, how to correct point and shoot, selecting equipment, practice regimens, mounting, and much more.

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.
