When it was originally published in 1981, Training the Gunfighter was ahead of its time. It was one of the first comprehensive studies of the best ways to equip law officers to perform their duties—from choosing the best guns for the job to creating a realistic training program to understanding the legal implications of using their weapons.

Now, former law-enforcement officer, practicing attorney, and current police trainer Tim Mullin brings Training the Gunfighter up to date, combining the time-honored information from the original book with fresh insights on preparing officers—and law-abiding citizens—to use deadly force against today's violent criminals. Mullin thoroughly discusses selection and use of combat firearms and ammunition for patrol- men, plainclothes investigators, off-duty officers, undercover cops, and legally armed citizens. He studies handguns, shotguns, rifles, and special-purpose weapons from a tactical and historical perspective—and comes to some surprising conclusions about semiautomatics vs. revolvers, the utility of the venerable .38 Special, the practical value of the 20-gauge shotgun, cost-effective training methods, adequate practice ranges, and dozens of other relevant topics.
Timothy J. Mullin is a former infantry officer in the U.S. Army and deputy U.S. marshall. He is a lifelong gun lover and fervent defender of the Second Amendment. He has written extensively on combat handguns, shotguns, rifles, and machine guns. He is the author of Letters from Elmer Keith and 100 Greatest Combat Pistols , both published by Paladin Press.
