In a follow up to The Tactical Pistol, Gabe Suarez released Tactical Pistol Marksmanship. Just as in the previous book, Suarez presents information in a logical, easy to follow format that will instantly “click” with most readers. While some of the topics covered are also covered in the first book, this only goes to illustrate their importance or serves to expand on the previously discussed topics. An example topic that comes to mind is the three types of weapon malfunctions and how to train them so that you can quickly get back into the fight for your life if a malfunction occurs at the worst time.
The real gem is that this book focuses on skills that you should be training. In my opinion, the whole book could be a training manual for anyone who plans to use a pistol in a defensive situation. Three chapters at the end of the book are dedicated to drills that progress from most basic to advanced. The entire book is worth getting for these last chapters alone. These drills are mostly dry fire drills (but can also be done at the range), meaning you can immediately start training at home with an unloaded weapon, or with the use of dummy rounds.
From the book:
Just like any competent instructor in anything understands, "advanced skills are the basics mastered." Bruce Lee said that, and he knew how to train. Gabe Suarez takes the basic concepts introduced in The Tactical Pistol and gives you a road map to mastering them.
That's basically what this book is all about: mastering the basics. How important is fundamental mastery to you in regards to defensive shooting skills? This isn't target practice, this is combat shooting training. Take it seriously and start training if you don't already. Whether you're a seasoned shooter or just beginning your training, this book is a great companion to having an actual, qualified instructor.
