Hi Chris

That is very interesting book. I will read it again to ensure that I have full understanding. Undoubtedly I will have some questions. If you don't mind we will discuss that on Thursday.
Many thanks

Very Informative Reading

Mar 2014

"If you want some info on shooting then Chris Mason has an interesting web page. He has also recently made available an ebook that makes easy informative reading for the 'competitive parent/child'. I found it particularly interesting reading. Whatever your sport there is vital information on the coach athlete relationship and generally inspirational advice. It also backs up all his words of wisdom for those of you who have had coaching from Chris. I highly recommend the book even if shooting is not your main sport it could be invaluable to any keen athlete wanting to be one step ahead."

"Hi Chris

I can highly recommend Competitive Pistol Shooting, for any pistol shooter, at any stage of their shooting career. It covers every aspect of the sport, taking you through the mental, physical and technical training skills. The book is easy to understand and has clear and concise instructions. Having read the book twice, it has already become my main reference book for training."

Very Good Read

Competitive Pistol Shooting

Hi Chris

I've found it a very good read and I suspect it's going to be a very good re-read for many years to come. I would say that you have definately got the balance between the theory and the explanation of the techniques spot on. There is enough information for someone to learn the techniques and understand the scientific basis behind them; and if they are interested they could research further from the reference provided.
