A firearms training program geared for the high-speed, close-distance conditions of a real gunfight needs to be about fighting, not just shooting. Former U.S. Marine & California Highway Patrol veteran Lou Chiodo recognizes this fact, & Winning a High-Speed, Close-Distance Gunfight outlines the fundamentals of his reality-based program ? one that enjoys one of the highest police officer survival ratings in the country.
During his police service, Chiodo realized that standard firearm qualification courses do not prepare officers to face the high-stress environment that they experience in real gunfights ? multiple-round, rapid-fire engagements at danger-close distances, often in low light. He studied survival stress & confrontation dynamics from all angles & used his findings to develop the training methods outlined in this book. Through innovative ranges & drills that replicate the conditions of actual street engagements, along with a radical but surprisingly simple retooling of firearm qualification courses, Chiodo shows how you can achieve true combat accuracy when the bullets are flying for real.
Whether you are a police officer, firearms instructor or armed citizen, Winning a High-Speed, Close-Distance Gunfight will help you evaluate your present program & adopt useful training methods to prepare for real-life armed confrontations. Read this valuable book & start training to fight, not just to shoot.
