9781592281572: U.S. Army Combat Pistol Training Manual

As the saying goes, there is a right way, a wrong way, and the Army way, and when it comes to training the tens of thousands of troops in the United States Army and Army Reserves, there is only one way to teach the troops to use a handgun. Here for the first time in print is the recently declassified manual that the U. S. Army used to train tens of thousands of Army personnel how load, aim, sight, and squeeze the trigger of their Army-issue nine millimeter M9, .45 caliber, or .38 caliber revolver. Readers will learn:

· One handed, two handed, palm-supported, and Weaver grips
· How to avoid recoil anticipation, trigger jerk, and heeling
· Correct sight alignment, target engagement, and breath control
· Standing, kneeling, prone, and traversing positions with and without support
· Safety and training aids
· Combat pistol and revolver qualification courses and training schedules

In addition, there are dozens of subtle insights on using a pistol, drawn from years of practice--and from years of teaching buck privates how to qualify as marksmen. The U. S. Army Combat Pistol Training Manual is an invaluable reference for gun enthusiasts and marksmen whether in or out of the service, and the only book you need to learn how to use a handgun the Army way.
