    Hey, TB. Glad to have you aboard.

    First step, if you're new to armed defense and haven't already done so, check out some reading materials:
    • In The Gravest Extreme, by M. Ayoob. It's about as good an introduction to the pros, cons and responsibilities of defensive carry as you're likely to see. A bit dated, but very worthwhile.
    • The Truth About Self Protection, by M. Ayoob.
    • Principles of Personal Defense, by J. Cooper.
    • The Gift of Fear, by G. DeBecker. A bit of an anti-gunner, but fairly accurate regarding basic mindset, awareness and reading others.
    • For a heavier dive into mindset and mental preparation, check LtC (ret) David Grossman's books.


    There are a number of good recommendations in the Defensive Books/Videos forum.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
    Thoughts: Justifiable self defense (A.O.J.).
    Explain: How does disarming victims reduce the number of victims?
    Reason over Force: The Gun is Civilization (Marko Kloos).
