In a market saturated with information about the combative use of a handgun comes a much-needed practical perspective from the 2010 Law Officer Trainer of the Year, Dave Spaulding. For the Handgun Combatives videos, Spaulding draws on what he has learned in more than 35 years of law enforcement and federal security experience to show you what fighting with a pistol is really like. Spaulding readily admits that much of what he knows about shooting he learned from others, because he made it his business to learn from the best. Spaulding then takes this hard-earned knowledge and adds his own unique, combat-proven twists.

In the second part of Handgun Combatives, Dave Spaulding shows you how to apply the handgun shooting essentials you learned from Part 1 to more advanced scenarios. The fundamental rule for situational shooting— from vehicles, in low-light or inconsistent lighting, in extreme close quarters, to the rear, or when clearing a building in a oneman- entry operation—is behavioral consistency. Achieving this consistency requires the right skills. Every move you make, every aim you take, or every shot you fire is more likely to be successful if it has been perfected through proper training techniques and drills.

Now you can benefit from Spaulding's hands-on street experience, indepth firearms instruction, and committed personal training practices to ensure that you are ready, able, and willing to fire your handgun if needed.
