For less than $20 they can now get all the answers they need from world-renowned shooter, Julie Golob in her new book called `SHOOT'.
Julie's shooting career started at the tender age of 14, later after leaving school she joined the United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) where she spent the next eight years honing her skills to become one of the most accomplished shooters in the world. Not content to just shoot, Julie has spent the past few years on a mission to promote the growth of women in the shooting sports. Along with Kippi Leatham and Sharyn Cohen they formed the Women of USPSA [...] to encourage more female participation.
This mission has now expanded into a book.
With nearly 250 pages, it is densely packed with information, not only about all the various shooting disciplines, it also contains examples of how women are competing against (and in some cases beating) the men in what has traditionally been a male-dominated sport.Read more ›
The book is very nicely written and easy to understand. I can tell by the way the book is written that Julie is an great teacher.
As an aside, I was surprised at the quality of the book physically. I am used to seeing paperback books that have cheep paper used, not this one. Heavy glossy paper. As a former book publisher I love that they did something as small as use quality paper in making this book.
Julie Golob is an asset to the shooting community in that she's not long a very accomplished shooter, but also is an exemplary ambassador for the sport. She's an excellent communicator makes extensive use of social media and has a passion for getting new people into shooting sports with a special emphasis on women's participation.
Unsurprisingly, she wrote this excellent book that serves as one of the finest introduction to both shooting and the modern shooting sports that I have found as I have reemerged into the shooting world. Her writing style is relaxed, but concise. She stays on point with her given topic whether it's explaining firearms technology in a very understandable manner or talking about how to approach shooting an action pistol match.
The first part of the book is where Julie covers the basic topics such as safety (and that's the first chapter as you might expect) as well as beginning to impart her love for the sport and why the reader should consider getting involved. She has an entire chapter devoted to women and shooting and also provides an excellent introduction and overview of firearms and their related terminology.
The second portion of the book is a welcomed overview of the current state of international shooting sports.Read more ›
