Indispensible for serious self defense...
I have found these to be indispensable for helping me to keep prepared and on guard...
Why? Not everybody has the time, strength, funds, or 24/7 access to a range... Being partially disabled/handicapped, strength and energy are factors that I daily have to contend with. These affect the time, funds, and access that I have to the range...
Workarounds are always possible, in just about anything you do... Of, and by, themselves, they are not complete. Some range time is mandatory, as a form of checks and balances vis-à-vis theory, practice, and improvement. Combining dry-firing with range time, meets all but the most stringent criteria, such as that found in competitions, and martial aspects, such as LEO, military, or contract work- things you young, fit, and healthy folks can do...

Once upon a time, there was a VHS tape of Colonel Rex Applegate, with Michael D. Janich, showing point shooting... Alas, I no longer have either that VHS tape, or player to show it on... The tape was available through Paladin Press, as are all of the Colonel's and Mr. Janich's books...
Christopher Grosz and Michael Janich wrote the most important book for targeting vital areas in knife/edge fighting. It's also apropos to the use of firearms... More efficacious than Gray's Anatomy, modern science will put you towards where you need to aim your weapons, for greatest benefit. Too much has been said of torso/head... Too much area, too many potential deflectors, and too little knowledge of where the best place to damage for point, edge, or projectile... Grosz and Janich shine a bright light on the best in targeting...
If you don't have the money for daily, or weekly, trips to the range, these suggestions above may make a difference in how you respond to threats...

No second place winner is also good, written by Bill Jordan, a Border Patrol Agent for many years and the winner of numerous gunfights. It gets pretty deeply into the mental aspects also.

You won't need another.
Handgun tactics have evolved considerably since Bill Jordan's book. My guess is that tactics of Bill Jordan are no longer taught.
Perfect point shooting, especially at 10' and less. Don't use sights. Within a magazine or two, you ought to have it wired. Practice shoulder point shooting out to 15 yards using only your front sight. This might take more time to perfect, but with practice you should find that you'll be able to repeatedly score "X" rings hits.
If you can't avoid a gunfight, keep in mind that a bad guy will be putting rounds on a good guy. That means you'll have to avoid being a stationary target while returning fire.
My recommendation is to always try to go with Gun Fighting Rule 1: the only way of surviving a gunfight is to not get in one.
Gun Fighting Rule 2: if Rule 1 is not an option, don't get shot. Not getting shot involves a lot of variables that can be learned and perfected to muscle memory. You'll have to know which way to move to maximize your avoidance of taking rounds. Take advantage of barriers that might be available. A barrier is anything that will stop a handgun round.
Target shooting is not tactical shooting.
Situational awareness can go a long way in saving your life. The second that you remotely sense potential trouble, get the hell outta there. Cops have to engage. It's their job. Unless you're an on-duty cop, get the hell outta a potentially life-threatening environment.
If you can control a potentially life-threatening encounter, you'll probably survive. Gain control as soon as possible. What some people assume is cops reacting excessively is really their gaining control. If they can control, they'll survive. The sooner cops seize control, the more likely they'll survive. Survival is the only metric that matters.
Stay safe and stay alive.
