the best thing you can really do in regards to fundamentals is this, go to the bullseye website and read the manual on shooting a handgun. then practice the fundamentals.

foxus on trigger and sight control. muscle movement comes down to a major portion of shooting. stay loose is all you can hope for.

Practical Shooting by Brian Enos is a good book to have and read.

For the fundamentals (and it's all about the fundamentals), here are 2 excellent books -

A Pistol Shooter's Treasury:
http://www.amazon.com/Pistol-Shooter.../dp/B001EK91SW

USAMU's Advanced Pistol Marksmanship Manual:
http://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Pisto...ref=pd_sim_b_4

Long out of print, but a real classic is The Art of Handgun Shooting by (then) Captain Charles Askins, Jr. Also, Gil Hebard's previously recommended invaluable resource book, The Pistol Shooter's Treasury.
