This would be it. I enjoyed this book immensely because it has taken almost every important aspect that I have learned at Thunder Ranch and put it in a concise format that is easy to review and reenforces techniques that you may have forgotten. The tactics presented here are succinct and logical. It amazes me how much I pick up with each new paragraph and Tiger shares tactical aspects from the other schools he attended.

There are grammatical errors in the book and Tiger admits to this right up front but it really doesn't detract from the presentation considering this started as a training diary.

To really absorb the material, read a little at a time, make notes, review it again later until it sticks. There are literally hundreds of practical applications here. Sort of a Reader's Digest version or Cliff Notes of what you really need to know. One of the best books I have every read on fighting with a handgun or carbine.

I met Tiger McKee when he was an instructor at Thunder Ranch and have since trained with him at his academy. This book is an exceptional review of the major schools, trainers, and modern thoughts on self defense with firearms. It is explained it was originally his personal journal and Clint Smith suggested he publish it. The book is filled with excellent illustrations and summaries of training philosophy. After getting less then halfway through I decided to buy another copy since I was highlighting, taking notes in the border, etc etc.

The book covers all the fundamentals and many advanced concepts. Whether you need to know how to PROPERLY reload, clear malfunctions, carry, configure your weapon... it is all here. As a five time graduate of Thunder Ranch, I can't emphasize that this is a great purchase enough.

You may find that is the only book of it's type you need to purchase. I have a small collection of similar and related tomes, not one of which even begins to cover the subject of gunfighting in such depth. It could reasonably said that it begins where the others leave off yet is not beyond the tyro.

The book opens Author Mckee's training journal for others to read. It is written by a student

warrior for for other student warriors to read and is, therefore,refreshingly free of bluff,bluster and ego. Mckee allows his teachers to speak directly to the reader as well as offering his own insights. While there is much practical detail,the book is very much a Warrior's meditation.

Another outstanding aspect of this book are the hand drawings that serve to illustrate the author's points in a way vastly superior to photographs. As well, the original handwritten text is reproduced with grammer and spelling errors intact, which actually improves the formally informal ambiance of the book.

While no book of this type could ever be deemed to exhaust the subject nor substitute for proper instruction, it seems to this reader an excellent guide to further study.

Format: Paperback
I picked up T. McGee's BOOK OF TWO GUNS when I was last at Thunder Ranch in Oregon after one of my fellow students showed me the book back at the hotel. That was when I realized it was a MUST HAVE for anyone who has had classes at Gunsite, Thunder Ranch, etc. Though it seems much of the information reflects information provided by Col. Cooper or Clint Smith, even for students of other schools, much of this information is universal...it's just that different teachers use different jargon.

This book has a very unique layout as it truly is a copy of T. McGee's notes. Great hand drawn illustrations. At times, I feel like I am back in class watching Clint Smith illustrate his techniques.

For those who have not had exposure to formal firearms training, at times, the narrative may seem disconnected. But for those who have been through formal training, it is a great reference book.

Though this book may not be for everyone (what book ever really is?), it is an excellent addition any weaponscraft student's library.

Not sure what book 'todd' was reading. This books IS exactly what it states itself to be. The Book of Two Guns is essential reading for anyone on the warrior's path. I have not read a book that more completely welds together mindset, marksmanship and gunhandling. Get it.

Format: Paperback
Tiger Mckee draws from a wide range of experience in order to compile The Book of Two Guns. The information he shares with the readers is not only proven but practiced everyday by students of his trade. Tiger also brings together the concept of fighting with a firearm as many view fighting with the hand. Mental and emotional dedication are a must; going hand in hand with the skills illustrated in this book. Overall, a very strong book for beginners and for the experienced a refreshing look at some of the basics.

It is refreshing to see a book published in this format - hand written notes (well printed) by a student of the martial arts. This book is best read in small bites because of the density of material presented, and the format adds to this method of reading. A great change from the usual highly edited professionally packaged slick contentless dribble.
