My iBook 101+ Pro Style Pistol Offense Plays is the first coaching resource of its kind and the content is exclusively pistol offense. Get it from the iBookstore here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/101+-pro-style-pistol-offense/id611588645?mt=11

Here is a compilation of resources on the Pistol Offense. The pistol is a very effective backfield set which can be integrated into any offense and provides benefits greater than the shotgun. My first exposure to the pistol was in 2000 when Tom Kazckowski, then the head coach at Ohio Northerm University spoke on the “shogun I formation” at the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association. The pistol became popular in 2005 when Chris Ault adapted the backfield set into his offense in 2005 and dubbed it “the pistol.”

Here is a listing of resources in which the pistol set is utilized. Please feel free to add more links in the comments section.
