|A US Navy SEAL in Afghanistan|
While Chris Sajnog excelled in for many years as a Navy SEAL and SEAL firearms instructor, he does a good job of tailoring his book to normal everyday shooters. I had feared that a book by a SEAL might require me to run hundreds of miles, half-drown myself, experience hypothermia, and total exhaustion before expending unlimited amounts of ammunition at the range.

Instead, Chris dispenses with the bravado and writes cogently about the fundamentals of shooting and how those fundamentals are adapted to combat shooting. He covers basics like safety, stance, grip, sight picture, trigger control, breathing, and follow through. For each topic, he thoughtfully covers the basics in a way that is practical for the civilian or law enforcement shooter faced with a tactical situation. He shows how the basic technique changes for combat shooting. Chris covers the basics of pistol and carbine shooting using ubiquitous Glock-style handguns and AR-style carbines.
How to Shoot Like a Navy Seal is a quick read and is filled with very sensible training advice and tips on combat marksmanship fundamentals. However, once you register with links provided in the book, you also get a series of free online videos that demonstrate the concepts discussed. I found these invaluable. They let you see exactly what Chris writes about in the book. He shows you how to practice at home. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can get the book for very low cost or even borrow it.
Overall, I highly recommend Chris Sajnog's book, How to Shoot Like a Navy Seal, and recommend you download it today! For more training from Chris Sajnog, check out the training company he founded: Center Mass Group.
