Book Review: Sugical Speed Shooting

Surgical Speed Shooting, By Andy Stanford

For a little more money, you can get the 5th or 6th Edition of Combat Handgunnery, which has most of the same basic shooting information, plus a lot of good information on choosing a pistol, ammo, holsters, etc.

It's not a BAD book, and it's priced pretty well, but it can't compete with Matt Burkett's Practical Shooting Manual or Brian Enos' Practical Shooting: Beyond Fundamentals. The book covers basic combat pistol shooting. It doesn't cover things like proper trigger reset, shooting around cover, and other more advanced techniques. It lacks a lot of the detail found in the Burkett and Enos books.

There are a few little things that I picked up from the book to try out, and the methods described in the books work well for me (it took me thousands of rounds and many hours of practice to find what works), as well as many others.
