An EXCELLENT piece of work! I do believe that this book fills a unique hole in available resources in the shooting field. I m honored to have had a chance to look at it. I love the pit-bull drill! I ll be doing that drill myself the next time I m on the range! Again, a GREAT book and a major contribution to the field. Dave Grossman Lieutenant Colonel, U. S. Army (Ret.) Author of several books including the Pulitzer Prize nominated, On Killing Director, Killology Research Group --Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
Combat Gunfighting is a work of common sense and hard-headed clarity. Officer Michael T. Rayburn has written the definitive book on the subject of the close quarters fight and how to prepare for such an event. Read this book, follow its principles, absorb its lessons, and your ability to prevail in a deadly confrontation increases with exponential power. Eric L. Haney Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army (Ret.) Founding member of the elite, Delta Force. Author of, Inside Delta Force Creator and producer of the CBS television series, The Unit --Command SGT. Major Eric L. Haney
It is without a doubt the most fundamental information contained between two covers that I have ever seen. I feel this book can benefit any level of gun toting professional, as well as assist anyone, on any level, in advancing his or her application of fundamental skill. Which, is exactly what we are all trying to achieve. Bill Porter Michigan State Police (Ret.) Training Coordinator, Smith & Wesson Academy --Bill Porter, S&W Academy

Images and tactical modeling offered me specific insight into mind set, purpose, safety, & understanding that concealed carry brings tremendous responsibilities.
Having spent 30 years in some of the nations bad neighborhoods, I have had 4 serious draw-downs beyond Marine Corps combat duty overseas. In evaluating these experiences, I found that in all of the cases, as my weapon was presented, I had both eyes open and were fixed on the opponent's hands with only one exception....an assault by a fully fight-trained Pit Bull.
In Michael Rayburn's 347-page book "Combat Gunfighting", he describes in some detail what happens under a full adrenalin dump, with one critical detail that most weapon trainers miss...... the fact that the chin will drop to protect the shooter's throat. As your weapon is presented, the shooter aligns the slide with a small focal point between his nose and the bottom of his chin. This small area is important, and you must find the spot in your presentation where you will be bringing the pistol to.....every time it is presented.
A vast array of other skills are discussed, such as Phase I and II pistol jams, the differences between tactical and speed reloading, along with "officer injured" scenarios and how to overcome these real-life shooting problems.
Many photos and drills are presented. This is a must for the serious law enforcement or civilian shooter, and it is my pleasure to recommend this manual and award it a strong 4.8 star effort.
