The first in a series of technical shooting manuals from Gabby Franco.
I practiced Olympic shooting six days a week during 3 to 4 hours a day for 10 years. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had two amazing coaches who were patient with me and explained everything in a simple, yet effective terms so I was able understand the techniques. And, the results showed every time I won a medal in national and international competitions. In my life as an athlete and with all the knowledge I’ve acquired along the way, I feel as if I’ve come from a school of shooting.
I thought about writing a book for about two-years, but I was just not sure where or how to start. So, I said to myself: “I’ll write something more useful than just a book. I’ll teach the art of shooting a pistol in the most simple and effective ways.” And, that’s how this adventure started. I wanted to share my knowledge and experience in a personal way, using this manual as a vehicle to be your personal coach. These shooting techniques will give meaning to your shooting sessions. Making holes in a paper is just over rated; I believe every person that owns a firearm should know how to shoot proficiently whether he or she does it competitively or not.
I designed this manual so the reader use it regularly at the gun range, it will be a reminder of the shooting technique, and understanding that the goal of a “shooter” is to hit the bulls-eye every time; task that can only be performed with proper shooting technique. And so, to deliver my message the way I wanted to I designed the Layout of the book and cover. Basically you are getting me “Gabby Franco”, you are getting my hard work, because I did this book on my own for you.
Thank you and hope you enjoy it.
