No problem...I have more if I remember where I saved them too?
There is a good lesson or two in most things, from the Baghavad Gita and similar ancient texts, to the statement of purpose of some of the Fortune 1000 companies, to outright instruction manuals on self-defense and mindset. Keep 'em coming.Originally Posted by kilogulf59

I found it interesting reading Shooting to Live after reading a variety of more recent books that a lot of what was in the more recent books, particularly on mindset echoed what was written in the first half of the last century by Fairbairn and Sykes.
What's old is new, what's new is old.
One cant argue with sound advise.
