    Shooting by J. Henery FitzGerald

    I thought I would share some photos of my autographed & inscribed copy of Fitz's book "Shooting" to Chief of Police Robert M. Pugmire 10-20-95 to 3-26-64, WW 1 veteran, & Chief of Police in Pocatello, Idaho.
    Enjoy

    I have an original copy also. The techniques and analogy of Mr. Fitzgerald can still be used today. An excellent read for any firearms enthusiast.

    Thanks for sharing your copy of Shooting. I have a number of items that belonged to Fitz and here are a few of them:



    The photo in the picture below was the actual photo used in the Book:


    One of the Shooting books that I have was signed by his wife Gussie:


    The Army Special shown below was one of the personal guns that Fitz owned when he passed away:



    Here is Fitz wearing his fancy set of holsters with a belt buckle that proudly displayed his name: FITZ



    Fitz was famous for showing off his shooting skills. Here he is shooting a pair of guns at the same time:


    You could always find Fitz setup up at one of the major target shooting events around the country:



    This is his famous Luck Target:


    An autograph on one of his books:


    Here he is checking out one of his cut down Police Positives:
