The Practical Guide to Long Range Shooting teaches you how to shoot accurately. Shooting skills have gone downhill, worldwide - period. The guns are getting better but the folk behind them are getting worse, much worse. You can have the best rifle in the world, but if you don’t know how to shoot it - what’s the point?
We find that there is two main questions that buyers ask themselves before buying these books. Firstly, will I be able to find the time to read them?
Both the books are structured so that they can be read from cover to cover or used as a reference guide and referred back to time and time again. Every section has a summary of the key points contained in that section so that you can get a clear understanding of the highlights of each individual section or take a deep dive and get immersed in the detail.
You can easily purchase a book and jump straight to the section that is of interest to you at this exact moment in time and then refer back to other sections at a later date. Or - you can settle into a chair and read it from cover to cover. Both approaches should deliver each individual what they are looking for.
The second key question that our readers often have is - will I understand it? Are the books too technical for me? Are they too lightweight?
These books are suitable for people of all backgrounds with rudimentary shooting experience. They are simple enough for the novice but meaty enough for the experienced shooter.
Those with very little technical experience will find the books full of practical insights that get straight to the heart of the matter while the experienced hunter will find the books significantly broaden their understanding. Nathan educates his readers in these books following his usual supportive, highly readable and unpretentious style.
