"If you are serious about learning to shoot long range, the Long Range Shooting Handbook is a must have. So many great reference points and tips to get you dialed in quickly. This is a reference that should be used to train Rangers, Special Forces, and anyone else that takes long range shooting seriously. I highly recommend Cleckner's book - no matter your skill level, you'll be able to learn something from Ryan." - Special Operations Sniper and Sergeant Major (R) Kyle Lamb, Founder of Viking Tactics, Inc. and author of Leadership in the Shadows.
"This is not your ordinary 'How to shoot a target' book. Author Ryan Cleckner is unmatched in long distance accuracy and in this fantastic book, he tells us how it's done. . . Any rifle shooter would be greatly helped by reading this book. While the subject of this book is hitting a target way out there with a heavier caliber super accurate rifle a small game hunter could even be blessed by this information. . . Paper punchers out at the range also will certainly be better shooters after reading this book. For law enforcement and citizens who want to be prepared for any long distance occasion, this book is absolutely a must read. If you need to have the ability to put a bullet in a small spot accurately, then this is your book." -WideOpenSpaces.com
"I enjoyed this book and in two range trips have found it has already saved me the cover cost in ammo. My first range trip was zeroing and grouping at 100 yards. My second was drilling a 10″ target at 830 yards. I have never had such confidence in my ability to consistently hit a target at that range (with a bolt gun) as I did that day and do now. I could have gotten there myself eventually I know, but the Long Range Shooting Handbook got me there faster and with a better grasp of all that was happening between the buttstock and the target." -LoudOutRoom.com
"Cleckner has a gift for teaching. I have repeatedly seen contestants on Top Shot and guests at Texas Triggers excel under his instruction. He explains seemingly complex topics in a tangible way that just makes sense." -- Colby Donaldson, Host, History Channel's "Top Shot" TV Show

It's reassuring to know as you read that Ryan is a man of experience unparalleled by other sources of information on this subject. As he mentions, his methods may start internet flame wars, but then, what do they really know? In this book, you won't find any useless, exclusive, sophisticated methods, but, rather, the straight truths and ways of the rifleman's art. Ryan learned this art in an occupation where his life and others' depended on the outcome. He is without question a master in this field.
Another thing to note is that many books on this subject which are introductory level, which the Long Range Shooting Handbook is meant to be, spend the whole book saying, "In (book, course, etc.) you will learn...," wasting space with useless photos, or bragging of the author's achievements. In reading Cleckner's book, you will forget it is even intended as a "beginners guide to precision rifle shooting." The cover should read, "An extremely comprehensive handbook guide to long range shooting." And yet it still remains accessible to the beginner.
With such a huge success in a beginners handbook, I can hardly contain my excitement for the upcoming sequel.
You won't find a more comprehensive and valuable guide to the subject of long range shooting in layman's terms anywhere. Period. If you consider yourself proficient in rifle shooting, do yourself a favor and buy this book. You'll find important concepts you had no idea of explained in a way you will understand and easily be able to apply and take your shooting skills to the next level.
Another plus for Ryan is that, while he recommends products, he doesn't spam, and only recommends tools of genuine usefulness. I've read some books that felt more like a catalog. None of that here!
I could go on forever, but, I've got shooting to do. The Long Range Shooting Handbook will be the absolute best purchase decision you've made for you shooting gear bag in quite some time. You won't regret it, and you won't be able to put it down.
His tactical backround makes him a great teacher of hunters as well. Hes says "I'd rather have 1 MOA accuracy on time than a 1/4 MOA accuracy too late" that sounds like a great mantra for a hunter of any creature.
I really recommend this book to a novice shooters.
