    I'm looking to purchase a book describing grip, stance, practice routines for combat/ action shooting. Preferably for a model 1911 handgun.

    What are your recommendations?

    Thanks.

    "Surgical Speed Shooting" (by Andy Stanford, IIRC) and Gabe Suarez' "The Tactical Pistol" are pretty good. They both presume some firearms familiarity however.

    Agreed. Plus The Tactical Pistol Marksmanship and The Tactical Advantage by Gabe Suarez.

    Will these books work just as well for a Glock shooter?

    Thanks.

    Or are they specific to certain handguns?

    They are all pretty generic with regards to pistol make.

    Yes. In fact, in Surgical Speed Shooting, Andy Stanford predominantly uses a Glock 19 equipped with XS Big Dot sights. Gabe Suarez, IIRC, use a Glock 22, S&W auto, and Beretta 92FS in his books.
