My Books on Guns & Shooting
Self Defense and Personal Security Books I Recommend
by Massad Ayoob
The long-awaited sequel to Ayoob’s classic “In The Gravest Extreme”, this book teaches what Ayoob calls “the armed citizens’ rules of engagement” — the legal, ethical, and practical use of firearms in self defense. Highly recommended!
by Rory Miller
Renowned defensive trainer Rory Miller introduces the seven elements that must be covered in any complete self-defense education. His book provides a great (and sorely needed) bridge between theory and practical application.
by Patrick Van Horne and Jason Riley
This book has gotten well-deserved reviews for the systematic way it teaches people to look for and identify violent threats based on how they interact with their surroundings. One of the best and most readable explanations of “body language” you’ll find!
by Mark Walters & Rob Pincus
Sometimes a lawfully carried firearm is the answer to criminal violence — but sometimes it isn’t. Read these true-life stories about what happened to people who weren’t armed and how they might have turned out differently. Expert analysis!
by Gavin De Becker
A classic! The Gift Of Fear teaches you why you need to listen to your “inner voice” that something is wrong, and how to develop the habit of doing so. This book should be on the shelf of anyone serious about learning how to truly keep themselves safe.
Self Defense Products I Use Myself!
I’ve used Wedge-Its on hotel doors all over the U.S. and have yet to find a situation where they wouldn’t hold. I can’t say the same about old-fashioned doorstops! Stick one of these under your door and no one is getting in without your permission!
