Guide

“Julie’s easy-to-read style comes from her years of hands-on personal experience as an international-level competitor—it’s obvious she’s comfortable with shooting and teaching. Her tips, techniques, and explanations demystify those pesky questions that new, and even experienced shooters often have. SHOOT is a delight to read and a must-have addition to any shooter’s library.” —Roy Huntington, Editor, American Handgunner magazine

SHOOT: Your Guide to Shooting and Competition

Whether you’re a firearms enthusiast, an experienced shooter, or someone who has never even held a gun, Shoot: Your Guide to Shooting and Competition will help you explore different types of firearms, understand crucial safety rules, and learn fundamental shooting skills. This book provides an introduction to a wide variety of shooting sports through detailed descriptions that relate each type of competition to everyday activities and interests. High-quality photography from actual competitions and step-by-step instructional images augment the clearly written descriptions of both basic and advanced shooting skills. Throughout the book, Julie shares beneficial tips, explains sport-specific lingo, and stresses vital safety concerns. Going beyond just a skill-building manual for those new to firearms and shooting, SHOOT addresses competition stress, goal setting, logging, and beneficial practice techniques to help all shooters, from novices to champions, excel and take their skills to the next level.
