According to the book description of Combat Focus Shooting, “Praised by experts and students alike for his practical approach to intuitive shooting techniques, Rob Pincus has brought his program into a skillfully written dialogue featuring sections including: Working with what the body does naturally, Background and Philosophy of Combat Focus Shooting, Combat (or Defensive) Accuracy, Combat Focus Range Drills, The Critical Incident Reload, Volume of Fire, and The Balance of Speed and Precision. Pincus' book covers the content and underlying principles of the revolutionary Combat Focus Shooting Course in their entirety. Combat Focus Shooting is the intuitive shooting program that is designed to work with what the body and mind do naturally during a dynamic critical incident. This program helps the shooter to learn the "Balance Between Speed & Precision" and use either sighted or unsighted fire as appropriate to get combat-accurate hits efficiently during a lethal force encounter. Pincus' Combat Focus Shooting program has been incorporated into law enforcement and military training programs across the country and has been taught to security and police officers, military special operations personnel and instructors from around the world. In addition to these armed professionals, hundreds of self-defense students and beginner shooters are taught how to be safer through more efficient shooting in the Combat Focus courses every year, both at Valhalla Training Center and other locations.”


According to James Yeager, Tactical Response, “This book goes into easy to understand detail about the human response to threat and how every single physical and mental reaction has an effect on your shooting. If you took out every aspect of Combat Focus from this book it would still be a great book for anyone who carries a gun. There is a short piece on being a Warrior Expert and what that means that was good reading. Overall the parts in the book about what the body does naturally under stress are the parts I really enjoyed and they are sewn into virtually every paragraph. I do not agree with everything I read in any book and this one is no exception. What is different about this book is that I do agree with so much of it. Rob is a good writer that can really articulate his points. The chapter on grip and trigger control is worth the price of admission alone and the variety of drills in the book to allow you to try the technique out are explained in easy to understand detail.”
