Book Description

How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL is the first book to reveal the secret training methods of the most elite combat unit in the world, the US Navy SEALS

Recently we've seen several top selling books from other Navy SEALS that have taken readers behind the secretive walls of the Naval Special Warfare community by describing some of their most secretive missions. Now, for the first time, you will learn the actual techniques these warriors use during these harrowing missions.

Written by retired Navy SEAL firearms instructor, Chris Sajnog, How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL teaches you all the skills you need to shoot and survive in combat or any other high-stress situation. The book is a firearms instructional manual written for every level of firearms proficiency from beginner to expert and includes links to exclusive instructional videos showing you exactly how to perform the techniques.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"SEALs believe that the more you sweat in training the less you bleed in battle. How To Shoot Like a Navy SEAL translates this work ethic into the process needed to make any one of us a master with a firearm.  Having shot with a number of SEALs,  I was really impressed and learned a lot of new material from this Navy SEAL instructor's attention to  detail. I don't care if you are a housewife needing to protect herself, a weekend sportsman, or an FBI sniper.  This book is a must read." 
Scott McEwen, Co-Author #1 New York Times Bestseller American Sniper and USA Today National Bestseller Sniper Elite-One Way Trip

"The book has great fundamentals told in simple easy to comprehend terms from the eyes of someone who knows what it's like to be in combat defending our freedom and liberties. Great book!"
Blake Miguez
Top SHOT Season 1/USPSA Grand Master


"Having attended multiple instructional courses in firearms training, I was impressed with how Chris broke down the fundamentals in a way I'd not seen before. This explanation has really helped me grasp a lot of the "why" in recognizing my bad habits and working to correct them." 
Bryan Black Editor-in-Chief, Founder of ITS Tactical

"I have been a police officer for over 23 years in some of the most dangerous areas of Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. I've attended hundreds of hours of firearms training, and 'How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL' puts into words and video some of the most efficient and consistent shooting techniques I have ever used. If you are serious about improving your combat shooting ability and the ability to defend yourself and your family, this book is a must read!" 
B. Atkinson, Field Training Officer

Ladies - buy "How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL" Read it twice, employ all of the lessons, especially safety, safety, safety and practice, practice, practice and print out the printable card "Navy SEAL Fundamentals of Combat Marksmanship" and take it to the range. Doing so may save your life.

As the widow of a 32 year Veteran Navy SEAL, my first read through brought back memories of my late husband teaching me how to safely and effectively use a gun. I was not an easy student. I was stubborn and a "mutant," as Chris calls it (right handed and left-eye dominant), which made teaching me a bit more difficult, and as a young woman back then, I was baffled with why I needed to learn this skill. I was, after all, married to a Navy SEAL.

Many years later -- when I was able to calmly aim a weapon at three young men on drugs who intended me harm -- I blessed these lessons. I did not have to fire my weapon that day, but I was prepared to do so because the lessons Chris Sajnog teaches in this book were second nature to me.

My second read through reminded me of the absolute importance of the fundamentals of marksmanship that anyone who uses a gun must know by heart. I have printed the Navy SEAL Fundamentals of Combat Marksmanship and keep it in my purse for my visits to the range.

I bought Chris Sajnog's book, How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL, in support of a man who is part of a Brotherhood of fine men who look after each other and the families of their fallen brothers. I will buy it for others, read it again, and recommend it highly to anyone -- especially ladies -- because learning and practicing these fundamental lessons will save a life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this Book if you want to shoot BETTER!! October 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
“How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL” is a great book for both beginners and seasoned shooters. As a former Army sniper I was trained how to shoot one way - "By the book," Yes, I could hit my mark every time however, Chris explores some different approaches to shooting I have never heard. I now have a more constant trigger pull that actually works for how I shoot. Which in my pistol equates to key-holing the target every time which is an improvement from a one inch grouping at 25 yards. Chris also teaches you never to think that you know everything and to always push yourself to become a better shooter. Before reading his book a one inch group at 25 yds was good for me, as using my rifle was my bread and butter. I have read the book several times and learned something new each time. You should buy this book if you want to shoot better. I thought the price was a little high, but after reading the book and watching the videos, the information that you get is worth every penny and more. But if you’re happy with where you’re at as a shooter and you're not going to approach learning from the best with an open mind don’t waste your time! This book is only for those serious about learning to shoot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review - "How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL" October 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
EXCEPTIONAL!!!

I have to credit the author - really good work and a valuable asset to any professional's library.

I have over 26 years of public service as a former SEAL as well as an federal agent serving in a tactical unit. Over the years of attending numerous small arms course - basic, intermediate and advanced, as well as continual tactical training - I would say that this book covers the basics and reinforces good habits quite well.

It is easy to understand and effectively details the concepts and nuances of weapon handling, grip, stance, sight picture, trigger squeeze, breathing, etc. All of the details are explained in an easy to understand manner- as if Chris is simply talking "one on one" with you.

The "mystery" or "secrets" of effective combat shooting are debunked - it is simply a diligent and comprehensive understanding and application of the basics.

Good detail without "over-kill".

Writing style is occasionally "smart ass" at times - which adds a bit of humor to a predominately
dry topic.

HINT: follow his advice on "Dry-Fire" practice, it will do wonders.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very basic, incomplete, overpriced January 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This 90 page book covers the same marksmanship fundamentals that are covered in countless other works. Next to nothing in this book is specific to Navy SEALs or to combat shooting. If you really want to learn combat shooting from a Navy SEAL, read Combative Fundamentals, which is vastly more complete and costs much less than Sajnog's book.

The Book Description is misleading and oversells the book: "Now, for the first time, you will learn the actual techniques these warriors use during these harrowing missions... How to Shoot Like a Navy SEAL teaches you all the skills you need to shoot and survive in combat or any other high-stress situation." On the contrary, Sajnog's book focuses on widely known fundamentals and is devoid of combat essentials such as close-range tactics, distance, cover, malfunctions, etc. Worse yet, although the author extols practice, there is not a single drill in the book. This book feels like a shadow of what Navy SEALs know and practice in combat.

On a positive note, the book delivers solid fundamentals (stance, grip, sighting, trigger control, follow through, and breathing), is well written, and covers both pistol and carbine. There are a few gems in the book, such as "aim small, miss small", sight refinement, and virtuosity--but these are few and far between. Perhaps subsequent books in the series, on mindset and close quarters combat, will deliver. Sajnog writes well enough that I would try my luck with another of his books, but only after carefully assessing the table of contents.
