From the Author
Shootist was written due to popular demand. It seemed like everyone who knows me personally kept up the pressure to write a book on gun fighting. "Teaching people is what you do best, Joe," was a common statement. Many readers of my other books corresponded with questions or requests associated with the contents herein. Still, I hesitated because from my perspective, few people will ever require these skills. Over the last year or so, my opinion changed.
We Americans have a long tradition of excellence with shoulder fired weapons. Throughout much of our history, marksmanship and bravery were enough. Those days are long behind us. Advancements in technology have raised the standard and despite droves of people purchasing military grade weapons, optics and accessories, few people develop the skills necessary to properly utilize these assets.
This book presents the reader with a series of drills and exercises designed to improve the operator's capabilities to the point where they would dominate practically any engagement. The training tools can be assembled with little expense and moderate effort. They will make you better.
I also wanted to focus on topics that are seldom addressed in the shooting world. Nutrition and physical fitness are covered in-depth, as they are part of the survivability equation. Simple, easy to execute exercises that almost anyone can perform are included. You will see remarkable results.
I wrote Shootist for the average person who has mastered the basic functions of their weapon. It assumes the reader has solid remedial skills and a firm understanding of firearms safety. It includes numerous exercises that can be performed in the comfort of one's own home, as well as challenging drills to be executed at the range and open field.
