"Mroz also covers common jargon used in the gun culture. For example, he discusses the differences between rounds, bullets and cartridges. I believe that many a new shooter will have at least one 'ah-ha!' moment when they will suddenly grasp some arcane bit of slang they've heard.
"Finding a gun that properly fits your hand is a very important aspect to accurate shooting, yet it seems to be one that is frequently overlooked by many people and instructors. I am glad to see that Mroz not only brings the issue up, but clearly explains the idea and demonstrates how to check for good fit.
"The videos have good production quality and the sound is very clear. The videos are definitely professionally shot and edited.
"During this video, Mroz does all of the instruction. Mroz, a former police officer and director of the Police Officers Safety Association, is in his element while he is teaching. Mroz does a very good job of slowing down and explaining many of the aspects of shooting a handgun. A novice will be able to keep up with the content, without feeling 'talked down to.' If you are relatively new to shooting, or have recently considered carrying a firearm for self-defense, this video is an excellent place to start your learning."
