    I'm halfway through The Kite Runner. A good and well written story. I also saw the movie.

    On Killing and On Combat, by Lt Col Dave Grossman. I am about halfway through the first one (On Killing). Very interesting how much psychological stuff goes on with killing. It makes me want to live my life without having to take a life even more. But in order to live, hopefully I'd kill in a second. Can't tell until then.

    +1 for The Concealed Hangun Manual by Chris Bird.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Ditto! That one should be required for gun owners, IMO.

    A couple of other "must reads" are Principles of Personal Defense by Col. Jeff Cooper, and Surgical Speed Shooting by Andy Stanford.

    +1 to militarypower. I have ready On Killing and I am working my way through On Combat. I got to meet the Author a few months ago and speak with him for a short amount of time, because I went to his "Bullet Proof Mind" class. I found Grossman to be extremely for real and a very caring, Christian man. This man has my respect, and he has greatly influenced my thinking and Mindset.

    P.S. I read through and own "Verbal Judo." I have to admit that I was disappointed by the book. I didn't think that it was very good. Just my opinion, it might have done a lot for somebody. I would like my verbal judo to be so good that when I talk, the guy starts choking and is lifted off the ground, like when Darth Vader speaks.

    From a training perspective, given the one's you listed, I think you'd get good stuff from Sharpening the Warrior's Edge (B. Siddle) and On Combat (Grossman).
