Best training books or dvds.

Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a very detailed training regimen. Something that has a day to day very specific training program for USPSA. I have heard of the Ben Stoeger books, the Steve Anderson books, and I found a Mike Seeklander year long training program. That is all I could find. What do y’all recommend. I don’t want just drills. I need something very specific like what to do each day and how many times. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m new to competition shooting. I have been shooting for many years. I am also a army vet. This is a whole new world though. I want to get as good as possible for next season. I’m just getting started this week at my first match.

Stoeger’s Dry Fire reloaded has a guide towards the back page which details the type of drill you are going to do on what day, how often and for what type of shooter (beginner, intermediate, expert).

 

I have the book along with his Skills and Drills.

Steve Anderson's books are the best so far for me.  I've tried Stoeger's.  Steve's dry-fire regiment works.  Period.

Ben's new book Breakthrough Marksmanship is really good! I have most of his. This one really boils it down to what you NEED to know. I really like Dry Fire Reloaded. Skills and Drills Reloaded has tons of great info, but it does not seem well organized (to me) and was hard to really implement for me.

 

The new book boils it down to the meat only. I'd strongly suggest it with Skills and Drills as a back up if you want to get more into the micro breakdown of all things drill wise.

Get to Work and Refinement and Repetition.  Learn the difference between speed mode and match mode, and practice both in DF.   I took the 18 DF drills from both books, put into a 3 ring binder, use a timer/par time for each, record the time. 2-3 nights a week, 30-45 min total, each drill 3-4 min.   You will be surprised.

Bens new book is a one night read and really does an excellent job of explaining the concepts you need to get better at this sport as well as providing guidance on diagnosis and correction of common errors.

A good friend and Olympic trap shooter told me the best book he read was not about shooting.

Tennis, "The Inner game of Tennis" by Tim Galloway.  It dealt with the mental component of

his game.

Ben's or Steve's books will both girls you good info. 

 

My advice, buy one book from one of them, read it, apply it!  Buy a book from the other. Repeat!

Ben Stoeger's books are great. I also listen to the Make Ready Podcast and Shoot Fast Podcast. They have lots of good info.
