Recommended reading list?

Post by Wingshot on 4/3/2013, 2:18 pm

I'm looking for some BE specific book reviews/recommendations that can help me continue to move forward in the sport. I'm absorbing as much as I can from here and the main site but feel I'm ready to move onto more in depth material. Your suggestions are appreciated!

Pistol Shooters treasury by Gil Hebard is a great source and the Army Marksmanship unit, book given to participants at camp perry is another one, this one can be read online at the bullseye encyclopedia web site, a link to it is in the main age header of this forum.

Those are the most helpful books I have read. Find a group of good shooters at local matches, and hit them with questions. You can learn a lot just by watching good shooters. They tend to be very methodical in their preparation.

I've been reading the suggested Army Marksmanship Unit piece on the Encyclopedia and am being careful to absorb it in small doses. Thanks to sites like these I have been progressing steadily and am starting to really grasp the methodical shot process that's crucial to this game. I am starting a journal now since I've been practicing and can start to see what and when I'm doing things right, or wrong. Tonight I experienced some of the best shooting I've had thus far (practice) and that's huge for me. I'm loving every minute of it and can't get enough. The help I'm getting from this site as well as other shooters is tremendous!

Journaling is a very good idea.

Gil Hebard's Pistol Shooter's Treasury, already mentioned, is very good.

I don't think anyone has mentioned the Marine Corps Pistol Marksmanship manual, which provides step-by-step drills.

If you are a beginner, I would recommend just learning how to stand still. It's harder than it sounds.
