Close-quarters combat (CQC) is a tactical concept that involves a physical confrontation between several combatants. It can take place between military units, police/corrections officers and criminals, and in other similar scenarios. In warfare, it usually consists of small units or teams engaging the enemy with personal weapons at very short range, up to 100 meters, from proximity hand-to-hand combat to close-quarter target negotiation with short-range firearms.

This is essential reading for the student of combat handgunning. It tells you how we got to where we are, and who the major players were. There is an extensive bibliography if you want to read the primary sources yourself. If you are interested in the practical use of the pistol at all, I believe you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
I admit it, I was wrong about this book. It's a gem! And I've dismissed this little book solely on the cheesy graphics and title since it was first published. How wrong I was!

This is less of a "How to shoot manual" and more of a short historical essay into the modern origins of combat handgun training theory. The author does an exceptional job and the footnoting is first rate. This is a book for someone who wants to better understand the history of the art. And it is packed with names, publications, citations and sequential events.

As the book was completed in 1978, I can't fault the author for citing the now discredited LEAA ballistic recommendations at the book's end, but that's hardly the fault of the author.

If you are a serious student of the art, or a firearms educator in either the public or private sector, you NEED this book! I made the mistake of literally judging a book by it's cover. I was wrong, but I've got my Hardcover 1993 copy now and I'm better off for it.
Cassidy's treatment on gunfighting is an excellent primer and an important historical text on pistolcraft. This book is the overall combined effort and experience of many combative and pistol experts of the time like Fairbairn, Sykes, Applegate, Askins, Cooper and Jordan; a lot of perspectives are detailed in this book.

Today there is lot of disputes over "point shooting", the topic can get as hot as what the best pistol round is; 9mm or 45 caliber. With that I am not recommending point shooting over other methods, but it always wise to be aware and familiar with other techniques in your bag of tricks as a professional gunfighter.

This book is divided into two distinct sections. The first section is the longer of the two and deals with pistolcraft; techniques of fire and close quarters shooting. Also covered throughout this section is information about pistol traditions, combat methods and various personalities of the time. In the seconded section titled "practice" the author offers courses of fire in combat shooting.

Overall I found this book to be an important historical text worth to be studied by today's modern gunfighters.
Great historical overview of the methods of Fairbairn, Sykes and Applegate. It should definitely be on the shelf of every close combat aficionado.
