The feeling you get when you can hit a tiny target, almost out of sight, is really amazing for many of us.

The feeling you get when you can hit a tiny target, almost out of sight, is really amazing for many of us. Taking your skills to that level takes some time and training, but it's gratifying when you achieve that next step in your shooting skill set. One reason many shooters are moving up to longer ranges is the challenge. It's pretty easy to hunt or plink at the range and get good hits on target sub-200 yards, but as soon as you start to go longer then some skill is involved as is the need to do some basic math and use more tools. These complications mean that it's harder and more time consuming to shoot this way and that makes it appealing to those who want to go to the next level. Here we explain the basics of how to get started in Long Range Shooting.

25% of this book's proceeds will be donated to two military charities: the Special Operation Warrior Foundation and the Sua Sponte Foundation. This book is the complete beginner's guide to long range shooting written in simple every-day language so that it's easy to follow. Included are personal tips and best advice from my years of special operations sniper schooling and experience, and as a sniper instructor. If you are an experienced shooter, this guide will be a resource covering the principles and theory of long range shooting. This is the preliminary book to help you understand fundamental concepts such as MOA vs Mils and external ballistics, that can be like a trusted resource at the range. Learning to shoot long range isn't that difficult. Once you understand the basics, you can start to master your technique and you'll be hitting targets in no time. The author has a series of online instructional videos known for their ability to take seemingly complex areas of long range shooting and breaking them down so that they're easy to understand. This book was motivated by the feedback from those videos. The handbook is broken down into three main categories: What it is/How it works, Fundamentals, and How to use it. "What it is/How it works" covers equipment, terminology, and basic principles. "Fundamentals" covers the theory of long range shooting. "How to use it" gives you practical advice on how to implement what you've learned so far to make you a long range shooter.

If you are one of the millions of Americans who chooses to exercise your Second Amendment Right but haven’t quite mastered the proper technique with guns, then this is the essential manual for you.

Don’t wait to be placed in a dangerous setting faced with an armed attacker.

Shoot Like a Navy SEAL: Training Guide for Beginners Are you looking to learn how to shoot like a trained soldier? That is exactly what you'll learn from this book. You won't find the basics of gun parts, or how to load your ammunition without dropping it here. This book contains the techniques of shooting with accuracy, again and again! It's not unrealistic to think that you can. You just need to master the fundamentals, and practice them well enough so that you don't need to think about them while shooting. After that, you'll be able to focus on more advanced factors, and truly learn to be a sharp shooter! This book aims to teach the reader how to accurately shoot from whatever distance their firearm can handle. Sniping is a unique and highly specialized skill, and only those who have already excelled in shorter range shooting need attempt it. If you are ready to learn the skills of a sniper, it is assumed you do not need to become familiar with the fundamentals presented in this book. Therefore, how to be a sniper is not covered in this fundamental shooting book. The use of both pistols and rifles is important to the well-rounded shooter, but I feel that many shooters looking to sharp shoot will be interested in longer ranges than pistols allow for. That's why we'll only briefly touch on any specific pistol use in this book. However, the fundamentals are often similar, if not mostly the same. The basics can be applied to any type of small arms shooting, including pistols and rifles.
