Life or Death

Your Safety, Your Decision, Your Responsibility

Orlando Wilson

This handgun book is a no-nonsense guide to the application of pistols for self-defense and tactical operations.

ORLANDO WILSON has over twenty-five years experience within the international security industry. His experience in risk management business began in 1988 at the age of 17 when he enlisted in the British army and volunteered for a 22-month front-line, operational tour in Northern Ireland in an infantry unit. This tour of duty gave him an excellent grounding in personal security and anti-terrorist operations. He then joined his unit’s Reconnaissance Platoon with which he undertook intensive training in small-unit warfare. Since leaving the British army in 1993, he has worked and coordinated projects in the U.K., South & West Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, U.S., Latin America, Middle East and the Caribbean. His experience has included providing close protection for Middle Eastern Royal families and varied corporate clients, asset protection, embassy security, crisis management, corporate intelligence, asset recovery, tactical, paramilitary training for private individuals, specialist tactical police units, and government agencies. He has become accustomed to working with minimal support and the types of complications that can occur when dealing with international law enforcement agencies and the problems of organized crime.

For your personal information read reviews of clients and their experiences that assisted them in their safety decisions and responsibilities. Owning a weapon is a serious matter whose use requires training, intelligence, and understanding.

Life or Death is a no-nonsense guide to the application of pistols for self-defense and tactical operations. The contents of this book are applicable for novices and experienced shooters. Novice shooters will gain a solid foundation for defensive shooting, and experienced shooters will learn unconventional strategies that will give them the advantage in hostile situations. You will find simple, proven, and effective training techniques which dispel many myths concerning the tactical use of pistols.

“I’m CEO of an multi-national company and got my self defense training from Orlando. He taught me (and my wife) the how and when to use a firearm as well as how to shoot effectively. He also taught me to respect my personal firearm. I have been training with Orlando since 2007 and continue to learn from him.”

Stuart Paskow, CEO Mitch-Stuart, Inc.

“With twenty-two years of active duty, these experiences did not prepare me for the streets as well as I thought. I have learned so much from Orlando by taking a few of his hands-on courses and reading both his books. I invite you to expand your knowledge as well.”

Ric H., prior Navy Master at Arms and Army Infantryman

“This straightforward manual is filled with practical information and exercises that will suit the beginner as well as the expert shooter. The beginner will gain insight in all facets of handgun ownership, maintenance, use, and tactics which will result in skill development and confidence. The expert shooter will glean information that will facilitate “sharpening the edge.” I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who has made the decision to incorporate, or is interested in incorporating, a handgun into their personal defense strategy.”

Mitch Thomas, M.Ed., Colorado West Firearms Institute; Firearms Instructor; Crime Prevention and Personal Protection Instructor; Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit Instructor; Former Law Enforcement; Former Police Firearms Instructor
