Pilkguns seems to carry it.

This is the best book by a large margin for instructions on shooting various Olympic pistol disciplines.

I know it seems really expensive, but the material and the pictures make this book the best investment you can make to improve your scores.

Mee too. I believe 40 EUR for the book, 35 EUR for shipping.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any other way of obtaining the book here in Norway. Some shops carried the rifle shooting books from MEC, but "couldn't" (wouldn't?) get this one for me. They probably had to pay the same shipping charges as myself :p

For your information, the letter rate from Germany to Norway is 7,00 Euros (501 grams to 1000 grams) and 17,00 Euros (1001 grams to 2000 grams). The economy books rate is 6,00 resp. 12,00 Euros.

Only DHL shipping to Norway from MEC. Because we're not in EU I think

Wrong. What I quoted is the applicable POSTAL mail rate, not DHL rate.

Probably true, but that doesn't help much when MEC won't ship regular post to Norway. ONLY DHL! At least two years ago, when I bought the book.

Is this book for beginners or for shooters of all levels. I am currently at 570-75 range. Dont have access to pistol expert. Would this book help? I am cautious because of its high price....

Is this book too technical as I avoid getting into them.

The book is technical, but more for toilet reading to pass the time.

If you are 570-575, with no coaching or technical reading, you are el natural. You are too good.

You don't like technical things, this toilet top reader won't get you any higher.
