Continue your education in real-world personal security skills with Volume 4 of Kelly McCann's best-selling Inside the Crucible series. In this volume, McCann shows you the secrets of his proven close-range handgun tactics and how to properly integrate combative striking with the use of the firearm.

Through graphic demonstrations using Safe-Shot pistols, McCann first demonstrates the realities of distance and reaction time as they apply to sudden, close-quarters attacks. He then takes you out to the range and leads you and his IPMC students through a progressive series of drills to develop practical, tactically sound close-quarters shooting skills, including the real combat speed rock, shooting from the weapons retention position, flinch shooting and the secrets of close-range shot placement and stopping power. Finally, McCann takes the hard-core techniques of his best-selling Combatives series and combines them with his shooting curriculum and a strong dose of street smarts to create a state-of-the-art, integrated close-combat system that includes methods of fouling an attacker's draw, striking and shooting, and the use of the pistol as an impact weapon. For information purposes only.
