Volume 1 – Defensive Pistol Handling

The name Jeff Cooper has for years been synonymous with teaching the modern use of firearms. Considered the father of modern defensive pistolcraft, Jeff Cooper was renowned not only for his practical instruction on defensive weaponcraft and safety, but also for his groundbreaking ideas on defensive mental conditioning.

Originally produced in 1986, Jeff Cooper’s Defensive Pistolcraft Series offers a unique look at the core concepts that are the foundation of the Modern Technique of Pistolcraft. The series is broken down into four volumes:
Volume 1: Defensive Pistol Handling
Volume 2: Pistol Readiness and Marksmanship
Volume 3: Mindset
Volume 4: Ammo: Power of the Pistol

In Volume 1, Jeff Cooper reviews the five elements of practical shooting, weapon selection, the weaver stance, the flash sight picture, compressed surprise break, presentation, and the four principles of firearm safety.
