I’m something of a perfectionist when it comes to doing my best to ensure the authenticity of what I write about in my novels. That includes trying to learn as much as I can about various weapons that my characters may use in my books. I regularly compete in pistol and rifle matches and attend advanced firearms training courses.
The picture above shows me firing a pistol from inside a car during a course I attended a few years ago on shooting in, and around, vehicles. I’ll be taking a firearms class this year that will give me a chance to shoot the entire course using a pistol with an attached suppressor (silencer). It will also be a refresher course for me in clearing a building using only a handgun. I hope to use information I gain from this class in a future book.
