    I have what the military provides but I am looking for more diverse information. Does anyone know of an online guide, text or video, that teaches various tactical pistol techniques?

    Thank you kindly,

    Are you near Ft. Huachuca?
    First Sgt Kim and Captain Markham of WTU are assisting with this, as is SGM Townsend at the M P Station. You'll need 300 rounds if we go the civilian route, and if we go the military route the unit will provide. We will do both at time goes. I want the Combat medics who will be deploying soon in the next class. If they don't have handguns I will be going to the community to loan them handguns, preferably Berettas or Taurus 92's.
    This is free to Active Duty and deploying reservists of ANY service.

    There are plenty. In fact, the problem is weeding through the nonsense to get to the good stuff, IMO. I'd recommend the videos from Thunder Ranch and Gunsite from personal experience, although I'm sure others will have their preferences. For a text I find the stuff from Mas Ayoob and John Farnam to be outstanding.

    In a nutshell, Magpul Dynamics. It's about $58 shipped to your door. A four DVD set, that starts from the basics and works upwards.

    I am going to retire in Three years and build a range on some property I own. These are some of the people I plan on having out a couple of times a year to teach classes. Anything from these guys would be a good start.

    Skip the video thing and spend the money for a good shooting course.
    I would recommend:

    Surgical Speed Shooting by Andy Stanford
    Tactical Pistol by Paul Howe
    Pistol Basic, I, II, III by Larry Vickers
    ECQC-1/ECQC-2 by Southnarc

    Suarez and Tactical Response would be another option.

    +1.

    Can't comment on the Thunder Ranch DVDs, but Magpul's are excellent. $50 plus shipping buys you something like 7-8 hours of instruction. It is very professionally done.

    It's hard to learn skills via DVD. You can refine them, pick up nuances, but it is hard to learn a skill without someone giving feedback. I echo the recommendation for Vickers (as I have had only his classes), but any of the folks mentioned would be an awesome experience.

    While not a substitute for hands on classes, videos are great tools to give you a head start before taking classes and as refreshers afterward. Check out my series at www.armedresponsetraining.com
