- Instructing psychology
- Coaching techniques
- Holding
- Positions
- Aiming
- Trigger squeeze
- Zeroing
- Sustained fire
- and more...

This book is a must-have for anyone considering teaching shooting skills with the rifle, and also for novices that want to better their mastery of the fundamentals necessary to become a competitive shooter.
