14 YEARS AGO WE WROTE OUR FIRST MANUAL: “HANDGUN FUNDAMENTALS”. Over the next few years we added six more manuals – Rifle, Shotgun, Individual Tactics, Team Tactics, Unit Tactics, and Strategy. We recently updated our manuals and created a desktop reference version called, “Reference Manual – Firearm Fundamentals And Individual Tactics” which also integrates with our online content and interactive training plans. We’re offering this manual for $39.95.

We wrote this manual for new and experienced gun owners. As a desktop reference, it is an invaluable resource for basic weapon fundamentals and individual tactics. The manual is 300 pages long and we cover the following topics:

  • Combative Handgun Fundamentals
  • Combative Rifle Fundamentals
  • Combative Shotgun Fundamentals
  • Individual Tactics
  • Dry Practice Guide
  • Concealed Carry Briefing
