Move beyond the static square range and into the world of intense interactive training with replica firearms against live human adversaries under real-world conditions. This type of training not only accustoms you to what a human being (as opposed to a paper target) looks like in your gun sights, it gets you used to maneuvering around an adversary and lends a powerful sense of reality to what has previously been a technical exercise. Internationally acclaimed combat shooting instructor Gabriel Suarez shows why such training is essential to the complete development of the gunfighter. In addition, he tells you how to implement it, presenting specific drills and scenarios and addressing role-playing, levels of simulation, ranges of conflict, use of cover, the angular search, hostile-contact procedures and low-light considerations, as well as safety issues and equipment concerns.
