In this insightful analysis of the state of shooting and fighting instruction, noted martial artist and firearms expert Ralph Mroz examines the myths and misinformation that plague the shooting community. From the five deadly training traps to unrealistic training exercises to concealed-carry mistakes, Mroz (Extreme Close-Quarters Shooting video) offers solutions to help defensive shooters snap out of their routines and become better and safer with their firearms. Mroz, whose articles have appeared in Combat Handguns and Guns magazines, takes a no-nonsense approach to such topics as the need for empty-hands skills, range training vs. real-world training, the problem of range standards, understanding and developing startle recovery, and the pros and cons of competitive shooting.
Ralph Mroz is a police officer in western Massachusetts, currently assigned to his county's narcotics/gang task force. He has been a student of the martial arts since 1973 and is a well-known defensive tactics and firearms writer, with more than 250 articles published in professional law enforcement and use-of-force journals.
