All other factors being equal, it is your ability to read the wind that will make the most difference in your shooting accuracy. The better you understand the behavior of the wind, the better you will understand the behavior of your bullet. Now, champion shooters Linda K. Miller and Keith A. Cunningham reveal everything they wish they'd known about reading the wind before they started shooting — instead of having to learn as they went along — in concise, easy-to-read terms. 'The Wind Book for Rifle Shooters' contains straightforward guidance on the simple thought process they use to read the wind, the techniques and tactics they use to win matches and the underlying skills that support both. Let these champions show you how to put together a simple wind-reading 'toolbox' for calculating wind speed, direction, deflection and drift. Then learn how to use these tools to read flags and mirage, record and interpret your observations, and time your shots to compensate for wind. The book also contains a special section of advice and anecdotes from world-class shooters from all over the world. The essential wind-reading basics taught in this book will absolutely improve your shooting skills, whether you're a target shooter, a plinker, a hunter or a shooting professional. Linda Miller has considerable experience in international small-bore target shooting as a member of Canada's Shooting Team. She won medals at the 1993 Mexico World Cup, the 1994 Commonwealth Games and the 1995 Cuba World Cup. In 199, Linda became the first woman to win the Ontario Lieutenant Governor's Medal for full-bore shooting. Capt. Keith Cunningham, Ret. has more than 25 years' experience with the Canadian Forces and the US Army. He has considerable practical experience, including a combat tour in Vietnam, peacekeeping and countersniper operations in Cyprus, and annual unit-and command-level military exercise in North America and Europe.
