Travis Pike provides a practical review of the classic book “Shooting to Live” by Fairbairn and Sykes. Considered by many to be a forerunner to modern defensive firearms training, the book focused on the use of handguns in self-defense scenarios. The authors, with their extensive experience in law enforcement and military training, emphasize the importance of instinctive shooting, where the shooter reacts swiftly and accurately without the need for precise aiming. Pike takes these lessons onto the range to evaluate the effectiveness of these techniques.
