More Information
John Henry ("Fitz") FitzGerald worked for Colt from 1918 till 1944. Shooting, originally published in 1930, was the culmination of Fitz's work in the firearms field. In it he discusses his work with law enforcement and the courts, his theories and practices about practical shooting of the "one hand gun" and his thoughts about target and exhibition shooting, hunting and home defense. This was the only book FitzGerald ever wrote, but his life was clearly dedicated to all aspects of handgun shooting. While his written work might be unfamiliar to some of you, those who are reading this work for the first time should be very familiar with the writings of Elmer Keith, Charles Askins Jr., Ashley Haines and Chauncey Thomas. All these men were friends of FitzGerald and thought highly of his methods and approach. After reading this book, you will feel the same way.

Paladin is pleased to add this long-out-of-print volume by one of America's most renowned and colorful shooters to its Combat Classics library. The new forewords by FitzGerald scholars Timothy J. Mullin and Kevin Williams, as well as the addition of a number of never-before published photos, shed new light on FitzGerald the man and the shooter.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
John Henry ("Fitz") FitzGerald
worked in Colt's firearms testing department, and in this position he fired 1,000 shots or more every day for 10 years. By the mid-1930s, he was traveling 30,000 miles each year to give exhibitions, train police departments, hunt big game and appear as an expert witness in forensic ballistics, eventually testifying in more than 400 trials. For the premier shooting competitions of the era, especially the National Matches held at Camp Perry, Fitz was in charge of the Colt tent, where shooters came to see the latest offerings from Colt, have their handguns fixed and hear Fitz regale them with stories.
