    Basic marksmanship and tactics? Try Andy Stanford's Surgical Speed Shooting.

    Learn how to aim first. Then learn how to hold it.

    For rifle work, I think Cooper's The Art Of The Rifle is probably #1 on the booklist. There are other good books, but I know of no other that covers the basics so well.

    The book is written as a text specifically for 3-position smallbore/airgun shooters, as in olympics. If that's your thing, it is a good book. "Rifle Shooting as a Sport" by Klingner, although older, is a very good beginner text on the topic. ISSF shooting is not a really "practical" type of shooting, such as what is covered in Cooper's book, though.

    I have New Position Rifle Shooting, but I haven't used it. I can't get past this:

    Rolfing is 100% pure, unadulterated, pseudscientific flim-flammery. I can't take the book seriously when the authors have been taken in by quackery. It looks like there's a lot in this book for the serious competition shooter, but I don't know how I can trust it.

    I'll sell you my copy for $10 plus shipping. Send a PM if you're interested.

    Cooper's book, recommend above, is more suitable for field shooting than for competition shooting. I heartily recommend it if you are interested in practical rifle shooting.

    Perfect,thx. Cooper's it is. Too bad his pistol book costs a couple hundred, though.

    True, but in 97 lots of people did go in for it...I always thought of it as some kind of nazi massage.
