Is there and military field manuals or just any decent books on pistol marksmenship out there? I found thru my local library

Pistol Marksmanship Guide : The United States Army Marksmanship Unit, 1978

Is this a decent book or do you guys have any other suggestions?

I am also looking for a good source to buy new or used FM's The .pdf's are great!!!! but I would like hard copys I am figuring taking my thumb drive to stables and having them print of a FM would be costly and it would be cheaper to buy the book.

As far as the handgun marksmanship is concerned I can't help but follow this link for FM's:

It looks like I have to have an AKO to access this info...? Am correct in this assumption?

Do you want one for target shooting or practical shooting. Anything by Louis Awerbuck is good for practical stuff.

Nice handle by the way.

ha ha ya same to you on the handle, well It doesn't have to be a military field manual, but part of the intent of my post was to find a source where I can buy these so far I have amazon as a source. I also check out FM's from the local library, but I want something that would help with practical shooting skills.

Try the NRA or Calibre Press websites; both have numerous options, for starters.

Check out Andy Stanford's Surgical Speed Shooting: Practical Marksmanship for Combat

It's a solid look at the Mod-Iso stance and marksmanship and includes some shooting drills as well.

Yes, it is cheaper to buy the books than have some store print it.

There's LOTS of them out there. Anything by any of the respected trainers will do. Google Gabe Suarez, Andy Stanford, Jim Crews, Clint Smith, etc. Look around at the different offerings they have. Absorb it all, and use what works.
