This invaluable, well-illustrated book presents a carefully crafted, step-by-step program which teaches the complete novice air pistol shooter how to attain a high level of marksmanship. The training begins with a detailed consideration of safety procedures, basic pistol craft, range construction, and the types of air pistols that are available and how they work. The author then moves on to consider holsters, targets, and the advanced skills associated with trigger control, the hold, presentation, the stance, the fast draw, and rapid fire shooting.  Finally, detailed attention is paid to markmanship exercises, though it is emphasized that these should only be undertaken after all of the techniques set out in the previous chapters have been mastered.
