Richard Law and Peter Brookesmith are long-standing collaborators —they co-authored the critically acclaimed The Fighting Handgun
, published by
Arms & Armour Press in 1997, and still in print. Richard also contributed to Peter’s Sniper
(St Martin’s Press, 2001): one of the few books on the subject to analyse the psychology of the job.
Both have written for various shooting magazines including Guns Review
, Guns and Shooting
, Target Gun
, and Handgunner
. and currently edit and contribute to The Shooter’s Journal
Both are graduates of the Lethal Force Institute of New Hampshire and consider themselves to be not entirely inexpert shots; they have also devised various competitive shooting courses and instructed both tyros and experienced shots in a wide range shooting disciplines.
Richard Law is a recognized expert witness on questions of firearms law, history and technical matters, and has been secretary of the Shooter’s Rights Association since 1985.
Apart from his books on firearms and their practical applications, Peter Brookesmith has published an eclectic series of titles on subjects ranging through alien abductions, plagues and diseases, and the care, feeding, and psychology of horses.
