Target shooting is about placing your shots in the center of a small target . . . [T]he penalty for not doing so is a poor score. Tactical shooting is about stopping someone from shooting you . . . [T]he penalty of not being able to do this is the loss of your own life.""

–J. Henry FitzGerald, Shooting, 1930

In Advanced Handgun Survival Tactics, authors Dave Leflet and Curtis Porter demonstrate why most of what is being taught today about tactical shooting is not just worthless but also dangerous. To combat this, they drew on their years of tactical shooting experience in law enforcement and the military, along with proven scientific and medical research, to create their own training program for developing and maintaining tactical readiness for law enforcement officers and civilians interested in combat shooting.

Their tactical training system, which they call the Porter method, is a reality-based approach to handgun shooting. The tactical skills they teach are based on combat-shooting techniques that have been repeatedly field-tested and proven during actual combat by gunfighters, combat veterans, military instructors, and law enforcement officers. They are not based on police firearms training because most police training is badly flawed and unsafe for people who attempt to use it in the real world. One common mistake people make is ­believing that shooters who can punch holes in paper targets, have the skills they need to prevail in a real shoot-out where the targets are shooting back. They are dead wrong.

There are no second-place winners in tactical shooting. You have people who survive and people who die. This book teaches shooting techniques that can help you survive. Though it is primarily about handgun shooting, the authors have included a bonus chapter on tactical shotgun shooting for special situations."
