Quotes from the book:

“If you take the advice from this book you will have a better life and, if you train properly, also get possibilities to travel and find friends all over the world. Everybody can, it’s just hard work!”

“From the stadium of beginning it will take time to get into world class, i would say normally ten years.”

“Find out your own style and learn it to perfection.”

“Anyone who wants to be a champion in any of the pistol shooting events will without doubt fail without first learning the basics in pistol shooting.”
