The Investigation and Reconstruction of Crime Scenes Involving Gunfire
Author: Dean Garrison
Early in the investigation of a shooting incident, proper crime scene work is critical to the final outcome. Whether the shooting is ruled to be an accident, a homicide, or suicide often depends heavily on the initial on-scene work-up. What photographs and which measurements will one need to thoroughly reconstruct the event? What information, if any, can be learned from the physical evidence and surrounding objects in a shooting crime? Beginning with the basic tools and terminology, the book explains what a crime scene investigator needs to look for and document in the quest for the truth.

Essays on Shooting, Tactics and Training from a Grandmaster
Author: Ron Avery
─Knowing what to do is good. Knowing why you do it is priceless. This is a book aimed at the adult learner who is unsatisfied with approaches to learning that rely on either the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) method or on appeals to authority ("Because I say so"). In the words of the author: "In principle-based learning, the focus is on presenting the principles involved, with the trainer facilitating the training. Students are encouraged to ask questions and to try different options to determine what works best for them." "One of the tenets of training that I believe is the concept of allowing the student to discover things on his own whenever possible. I am a strong believer in the philosophy of not only teaching strong principles and techniques, but also teaching students to become self-aware of what they are doing and how they are doing it. Along with that is learning to analyze their performance of the skill and explore alternative ideas to find the best way for each individual." In a series of thought provoking articles, Ron Avery shares his insights on diverse topics such as: How to shoot handguns at the highest levels of skill How to be prepared for any lethal force encounter Why recipe-based training fails to provide significant improvement What actually works to overcome the flinch response Training methods that increase mastery and speed without compromising accuracy How to design your own drills This is a rare glimpse into the mind of a true innovator in the use of force.

A Famous management thinker, Peter Drucker said, "If you can't measure it, you can't improve it." You can't know whether you are successful or not unless success is defined and tracked.

Since more than 26 states have passed laws requiring training for concealed carrying of firearms, citizens and police have a duty to teach the safe and responsible use of the weapons. In eight other states that permit concealed carry with no training required, men and women have a moral obligation to learn how to carry and use their firearms safely and responsibly. This handy little book contains everything a novice gun owner needs to know to start learning the basics of competent and safe pistol use, as well as the essentials of using a gun in a potentially violent confrontation with a criminal. It is an ideal textbook for state courses required for concealed carry permits. While there are many excellent books on handguns, marksmanship and self defense, all are designed for those who want to be expert in those subjects. There are no other books which address the specific concerns of someone who simply wants to carry a concealed firearm safely and responsibly until now. Bill Clede serves on the Connecticut State Police Firearms Advisory Committee which determines what training in his state will and will not include. A fruitless search for a suitable text is what prompted him to develop this book. One of Clede's primary goals is teaching how to avoid discharging the firearm in the first place, defusing aggressive behavior without resorting to shooting someone. The Practical Pistol Manual brings all these concerns together -- safety, competent shooting, and how to deal with violent behavior -- in one concise and affordable book. This is the only book that fills the need of a text for novices that covers safety, competent shooting, and how to deal with potentially violentencounters.
I have been teaching Practical Shooting for more than a decade. Watching thousands of students fire millions of rounds over the years has taught me quite a lot about shooting. It also taught me how individuals process and obtain an understanding of shooting. I have seen students repeatedly shoot the same patterns over and over again, and I've realized the same drills highlighted the same mistakes. Over time, it has become easy for me to spot these patterns. The difficulty was making the student see and understand what I saw. However, when the student would experience an understanding, they had a breakthrough in their shooting.Over time, I modified drills and created new ones, to highlight the patterns I was seeing so that students would understand what they were doing wrong and comprehend how to fix it. This book is the product of that refinement. It contains a simple set of ideas, techniques, and drills; distilled down to an uncomplicated form. By developing your understanding of the concepts contained in this book, you can achieve your own breakthrough.
