    My Close-Combat Reading and Viewing List (links included)

    Here is my short list of reading and reference on the subject.
    • "Shooting to Live" by Fairbairn and Sykes.
    • "Kill or Get Killed” by Col. Rex Applegate.
    • “Bullseyes Don’t Shoot Back” by Col. Rex Applegate and Michael Janich.
    • “The Close-Combat Files of Col. Rex Applegate”.
    • “Shooting For Keeps: Point Shooting For Close-Quarter Combat” by Rex Applegate (video)
    • “The Principles of Personal Defense” by Col. Jeff Copper.
    • "No Second Place Winner" by William Henry Jordan
    • "Defensive Use of Firearms" by Stephen P. Wenger

    Though I have not read or seen these yet, they do come highly recommended by people I respect…
    • “Basic Gunfighting 101” by Michael T. Rayburn
    • "Instinctive Point Shooting: Street Proven Firearms Tactics” by Michael T. Rayburn (video)


    ...and for the H2H/Combatives/MA crowd:

    USMC Close Combat 1999

    USMC MA-1.02 Fundamentals Of Marine Corps Martial Arts

    USA FM 21-150 Combatives 1992

    USA FM 3-25.150 Combatives 2002

    Hope these help someone...

    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.

    Hiya Mr. J,

    Long time no hear and thanks for pointing that out (you're the first BTW). I cannot believe I forgot that one...one of my favorite reads.

    Now I have to go and revise my lists on my forum and the thousands of others...

    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.
