The New Pistol Shooter's Treasury - Updated Empty The New Pistol Shooter's Treasury - Updated

Post by Oleg G on 3/19/2019, 4:03 pm

Folks,

I recently bought a copy of the original "The Pistol Shooter's Treasury" and decided to scan it for my own use, so I can have the book readily available to me in a digital format.

As I was doing that, a new idea entered my mind: to try and collect articles from freely-available sources into a "New Pistol Shooter's Treasury."

For my own use, I collected the articles listed below into a single book and would like to offer them to our community as a single volume (free, of course).
Before I make this file available, I would like to get permissions from the authors to offer this in an e-book form (PDF) to the members of the forum.

Below is a short Preface I wrote for the book and the table of contents with the names of the authors.

Again - there is nothing new (yet), just various articles I collected from different sources:

PREFACE - by Oleg Grutman
PRECISION PISTOL FUNDAMENTALS - by Brian Zins
So You Wanna Shoot Bullseye? - by Cecil Rhodes
Goal Setting: Training for that Big Match - by Mario Lozoya (from www.bullseyepistol.com)
A Focus on the Fundamentals - by Ron Steinbrecher (from www.bullseyepistol.com)
Bullseye Pistol Basics - by Allen Fulford (from www.bullseyepistol.com)
Fundamentals of Pistol Marksmanship - by Bill Joyner (from www.bullseyepistol.com)
Pistol Shooting: The Art - by Ed Hall

PREFACE

The primary purpose of this book is to continue the work started by Gil Hebard in his original “The Pistol Shooter’s Treasury.” This new edition is intended to collect the wisdom of the current generation of masters in a single volume and make it a living document with a constant flow of updates and new ideas.
The aim of this project is to maintain it as a free resource for the Precision Pistol (Bullseye) community of shooters. The Bullseye-L forum is a phenomenal resource for the on-the-spot advice and exchange of ideas, yet it is not substitute for a book collecting viewpoints and thoughts of our best and most knowledgeable shooters.
This book is intended to provide information on the fundamentals, technique and mental aspects of our sports. The subjects of equipment and reloading receive plenty of attention in the Bullseye-L forum.
It is our intent to solicit new articles from the Bullseye community and continue enriching and expanding this book.

Sounds like a good project.  One thing you might check into is the publish-on-demand option, where small and even single hard copies can be purchased fairly economically.

I wrote a sports car racing book that went out of print after 5 printings and the publisher suggested I look into this as an end-of-life option.  I ended up not doing it for several reasons but IIRC a 192 page 8 x 11 book with B&W guts and color covers was something like $7.

Good advice, thanks, OldShooter. I would like to keep the project free. The book will be in PDF format, sized for a tablet screen. Those who want a hard copy can print it, and I can reformat another version for the letter-sized sheets for printing.

I'm pretty sure that with some of these print houses you just give them the PDF and allow anyone to order copies.  For myself, I prefer a hard copy that I can sit in my recliner and read, so I would probably pay the ten bucks or whatever a single book might cost.

But no urgency to even investigate it.  You need the PDF first anyway.

Yes, I would like suggestions and contributions, but most of all, before I publish the file here on the forum, I would like to know that Cecil Rhodes, Brian Zins, Ron Steinbrecher and Ed Hall do not object to me doing it.

First off, thank you very much for including me on the list of articles.  

Here is a slightly updated version and the other writings that were added over the years.  You can use as you like.  

Thanks again for reading and remember that sometimes I'm not too serious or even polite, but I am sometimes very opinionated and even then I could be wrong.   Laughing  

Read for pleasure, use what you can, ignore what you want, train and see what works for you.  Good shooting and hope to see all of you at a match (somewhere / sometime). 

I'll leave it up for a while.  

Deleted, found some typo's, probably not all.  re-posted below.  

Cecil

Sounds like a good project. I lack the technical know how, but how about a CMS website with easy downloading of a local copy? Each article could easily have a PDF version available for hardcopy creation.

I've thought of a project which is in essence a re-purposing and republishing of articles. But at the same time aimed at current technology and helping build shooting sport communities.

Again, my limitation is the lack of technical knowledge. Host servers and maintain websites for ranges, clubs, and associations. 

Once you have the compendium website running, other websites could use it as a source of articles to feed their local club webpage and mailing list with fresh content.

Here is the first "edition" of the book.

Two PDF files one in tablet-friendly size and the other in Letter size for printing:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1o7HXGYq7gSW50Et66-dhm4DlunyBcb-J


Please let me know, if the  files are not accessible for some reason.

Also - authors, whose work I compiled in the book - please raise any objections and I will remove your work or remove the book altogether.

I plan on adding more articles to the second edition in the near future.

Enjoy and Best Regards,
Oleg.

Sorry, found some typos and editing was needed.  Been a while since I really reviewed this.

Thanks again.

Oleg, I can send you the "Word" document with the recent postings by Brian Zins.  It's posted here as well, but if you want the unformatted version, it would be easier to work with.
