      Understanding Firearms Ballistics by Robert A. Rinker.

      You dont need to be able to do all of the math(I certainly couldnt) to get alot of this book but if you can then will get a deeper understanding of what is happening when a firearm discharges. Great book for dispelling alot of the myths and misunderstandings surrounding ballistics e.g. rising bullets, the differece between a ballistic and parabolic arch and others that crop up from time to time.

      Dont let the equations scare you off. When it comes to math Im slightly above a sea urchin but I'm now able to calculate bullet flight times and work with ballistics charts thanks to Understanding Firearms Ballistics.

      I just finished "More Guns Less Crime - Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws" by John Lott.

      Its kind of heavy on statistics and the data is a few years old, but he gives a good bit of evidence that shows that crime rates fall in areas with more CCW permits issued.

      Just finished a fewe that were excellent.

      1. Unintended Consequences-John Ross(I'm sure many of you have read it.) regarding gun laws and the possible(fictional) reprocussions of these laws. Long book, first few chapters were boring but it picks up, very fast and disturbing at the same time of what could happen.

      2. Vertical Run - Joseph Garber Fiction, A CEO former Vietnam Green Beret has to escape from people close to him trying to kill him for an unknown reason till the end (don't wanna give too much away) I think theres one gun mistake.

      3. Total Resistance: Swiss Army Guide to Guerilla Warfare - H. Von Dach Non-fiction, actually could be just as handy as the the boy scout handbook. Hopefully will never have to use it, but entertaining the imagination nonetheless.

      Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse by James Wesley Rawles

      A great book. Fiction. Almost read as a survival guide however for how to setup a retreat if the economy collapses due to hyper-inflation. Kinda gets bogged down in technical details but still a great book.

      Right now I'm reading;

      Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matthew Bracken

      Being only 150 pages in, I can honestly say this is one of my favorite books. It's part 1 of a three book series and has some great plotting and characters. It's a book about a "staged" shooting at a stadium that results in the ban of all "assault weapons" from citizens. Truly a scary thought.

      Did I already post this:
      Tuchman, Barbara; The March of Folly: why governments continue to pursue disastrous courses of action, even though the coming disaster is clearly seen as the result.
      Diamond, Jared; Collapse: why entire civilizations continue to pursue courses leading inevitably to clearly-foreseen ecological disaster, even while that disaster is happening, and what practical (non-radical) steps might be taken to avoid the predictable end.

      Jean and I will be away on vacation from 09/28 (this Monday) until 10/18.

      Be seein' you...

      one of the best books I've ever read was "In the Company of Heroes", by Mike Durant. He was the pilot that survived in the Black Hawk Down incident. It's one that makes you proud to be an American. I also like Black hawk Down in general. For fiction, all books by Vince Flynn are great. It's about the counter terrorism stuff, which is just entertaining to read.

      I took a break from reading the classics that I glossed over in my youth and read through the latest novel by Steven Hunter, I, Sniper.

      It's a continuation of the "Swagger" character that you'll recall if you've read any of his previous novels. A good read, especially for those of us who can appreciate the attention to the firearms related details notoriously missing in most works of fiction. There was a review of it in one of the recent "American Rifleman" from the NRA. That's what lead me towards it.

      Hunter must be getting a bunch of bucks from "product placement"; he is specific on most of the equipment manufacturers and munitions suppliers.

      This is a very well written book (as are all of hers), and it will hold your interest all the way through. It will also have you shaking your head in bewilderment, at the built-in stupidity of one governmental entity after another, all the way through history.
      Finally got around to this one. Only a chapter into it, but it's packed full of examples so far. Looking forward to the rest.

      Vince Flynn's books. All are fast reads. Read my first one about 2 months ago on vacation and cannot put them down. I love the character Mitch Rapp, CT black ops. Not to mention since I lean right politically, I enjoy Flynn's sutle digs on the left. How appropriate today.

      Recommended Reading?

      Just read Cooper's Principles of Personal Defense...it was brief but very good.

      Now I'm wondering what other books on firearms, tactics, mindset, skill-development, CCW, etc. are out there anyone can recommend. That's it, thanks!
