Of the many books I have on this subject "Handgun Training" is at the top of my list. It contains useful information on a variety of subjects (lights,lasers, sights, drills and much more ), is well written and contains very good photos,charts and drawings. If I could have only one book on the subject this would be it .....For me , this is my "go to" book on the subject...if you want to improve your skills/knowledge you really should have a copy in your home.
thank for taking the time.........

Just finished the book today, WOW! As a firearms instructor (Law Enforcement) for over 20 years, I have never seen so much common sense packed into one small paperback. In fact I have plans to incorporate the drills and practice regimens in my own instruction. Mr. Mann's style of writing makes the book easy to read and fun as well. Probably the best explanation of Laser sights and the express sight I have ever seen. Very timely for me as I am just starting to experiment with the Laser sight on a pistol. Now he just needs to get busy and do a training DVD, he can have my order now!

Being fairly new to concealed carry but having been to FrontSight for training, it was an excellent and well written source of information. It reminded me of what I had learned at FrontSight. It also answered questions I had about lasers and custom sights. I had been looking at replacing the stock sights on my XD Sub 9mm, with night sights. After reading the chapter on sights, I decided to go with the "Big Dot" sight system. I am very glad I did.
Get the book. You won't be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for those starting to learn about handguns, and would make a great reference for the seasoned professional. It provides the basics, but will be better understood by someone with a technical backgrond. A great book to read before purchasing a handgun, so that you have an idea of what details to consider, and if you will need them for your personal use.

I've read a few personal defense books and enjoyed a very few, this one is really good.
I agreed with one or two of the authors conclusions and learned more than I wanted to.
The writing was interesting and there were lots of good pictures too.

Very informative, a must read for anyone interested in personal/family/property protection. I had difficulty putting it down to take a break.
I have been shooting all my life and so I thought I knew a lot about guns, shooting & self defense but this author certainly opened my eyes. I also know that this is not the only time I will read it.
The author shows photo's, charts & diagrams of the how to, the why, etc.
If anyone is interested in self protection it is a must read.

An excellent book with many insights into how to learn to shoot accurately in self-defense. Laser have a real place in the set of tools available to the shooter and this book explores and conveys the drills needed to become proficient in handgun shooting.

Far more value than the price would suggest. Friendly style, TONS of information-more than you can digest in a week of slow "read-to-understand". You will have to do the drills and that will take weeks, months, and years of practice. It is also a very good book for us first timers. Not intimidating, easy to understand, drills and skills are well described.

Just buy it.
