Book learning

Post Number:#1  Postby TWW » Fri Aug 26, 2011 10:27 am

While reading books can only get one so far in the real world I am passing along some books I have been reading with the hope someone else will benefit from it. My big question is if anyone knows of any other valuable books not on the list.

This list is in order of value to my interests (there is really a three way tie for first place):

The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry by Massad Ayoob
Minnesota Permit to Carry a Firearm Fundamentals by Michael Martin
The NRA Guide to the Basics of Personal Protection Outside the Home
The Gun Digest Book of Combat Handgunnery by Massad Ayoob

Have but not yet completely read: (both of them look valuable at first read)
In the Gravest Extreme: The Role of the Firearm in Personal Protection by Massad F. Ayoob
Deadly Force Encounters: What Cops Need To Know To Mentally And Physically Prepare For And Survive A Gunfight by Alexis Artwohl, Loren W. Christensen

Definately read the Gravest Extreme.

Some others I would recommend would be:
"Thank God I had a Gun" Byrd
"Combat Focus Shooting Evolution 2010" Rob Pincus - I have strayed from some things in this book but a lot is really good especially at what is actually going to happen in a fight.

There are so many more and I'll try to get back on when I have some more time. I turned to look at my bookshelf to get more titles and remembered that its not there, because my office is torn up and everywhere else in the house because of water damage... I'm off to the range!

Any self-education is excellent, as long as you take it in context.

There are SO many excellent books out there...Here are just a few:

- On Combat by Grossman
- On Killing by Grossman
- Principals of Personal Defense by Cooper
- The Gift of Fear by DeBecker
