Since the publication of Guns, Bullets, and Gunfights in 1996, readers have pressed for a follow-up with more information on Jim Cirillo and his service with the New York City Police Department's Stakeout Unit. That book is finally here. Author Paul Kirchner was working with Cirillo on this biography at the time of Jim's untimely death in 2007. Kirchner draws on his extensive interviews with Cirillo, his family, friends, ex-partner Bill Allard and other SOU officers to create a vivid portrait of an affable and gregarious man who nonetheless was "the last man many armed robbers saw on this earth." In previously unpublished accounts, Cirillo describes in detail numerous stakeouts and sets the record straight about what he and the other SOU members actually accomplished on the streets of New York. Cirillo also talks about his early years as a street cop and his service with the NYPD Emergency Service Unit; his successes as a lifelong competitive shooter; his distinguished career as a firearms trainer; his unique relationship with Jeff Cooper; his carry guns and the guns of the SOU; and much more. Cirillo's unique voice and humor enliven every page, resulting in a fitting, lasting tribute to a legendary police officer, shooting instructor, gunfighter and raconteur.

Evan Marshall and Ed Sanow rocked the firearms world with the release of Handgun Stopping Power and Street Stoppers. Both books predicted the effectiveness of all types of ammunition by studying the results of real-life shootings rather than relying on laboratory tests that ignored the dynamics of an actual gunfight. This third book in the series provides the very latest street results of all the major handgun calibers, from .22 LR to .45 ACP, as well as popular rifle and shotgun loads. It also contains chapters on short-barrel ballistics, the emergence of the hot new .357 SIG caliber, the continued success of the .40 S&W, the development of the latest exotic ammo, the effectiveness of black powder firearms and a brand-new ammo test protocol based on the results of the many gunfights of U.S. Border Patrol officers.

More than fifty years ago Dallas was under assault from hoards of vicious armed robbers with a penchant for violence. Police Lieutenant H.C. Holloway carried scars from a wild gun-battle with one of those criminals and a consuming hatred for them all. He devised a plan to hide shotgun armed offi cers inside likely targets with orders to shoot them down on sight. For more than two decades the unit he formed for that purpose made war on armed robbers with bloody and brutal effectiveness. They were called "Holloway's Raiders." This is their story.
