The book has all the ingredients for people just starting out in action shooting as well as for people like myself, who have been shooting for years and are looking for fresh ideas or have plateaued. This book, along with the others that Ben and Jay have put together, gives you all the tools you need to reach new levels in USPSA/IDPA. It took me a while to realize that in many ways, I've been wasting ammo in practice. Now I have what I need.
That being said this is a very solid book for someone just starting out in competition shooting as well as someone who has been around the game a while. I was all over the place when I started shooting and I wasn't really getting any better. With the help of this book and Stoegers other titles I have a game plan and have been seeing improvement at every match. I'm no GM yet, but the road there is a lot easier now that I know what I need to do to get there.
Definitely recommend this book!
I think Ben saw this and got to work; pulling from his years of experience instructing students and being a highly accomplished shooter to put together what seems to be everything he knows about the technique and skill of competitive shooting in one place. Training and Dry Fire practice are covered in his other two books, Champion Shooting: A Proven Process for Success at Any Level (Volume 1) and Champion Shooting: Guaranteed Results in 15 Minutes A Day.
In addition to the fundamentals listed above, he expands into concepts of the flinch and timing of the gun, skills like draw strokes, shooting on the move, training your focus, stage breakdown and planning, programming, match pressure and more. The blurbs peppered through the book from seasoned shooters Bob Vogel, Chris Bartolo, Dave Sevigny, Matt Mink, J.J. Racaza, Blake Miguez, Jay Hirshberg, Mike Hughes, Matt Hopkins, Taran Butler that help solidify these concepts as well.
