HOW TO WIN A GUNFIGHT  
by Tony Walker.  $14.95
 
A remarkable piece of work, completely centered around the surprise and first few instants of a lethal encounter. Range practice and sight alignment are not much of an issue in the close quarters, millisecond events of bringing a gun to bear the moment before a criminal homicide unexpectedly takes place. His work on managing fractional-second reaction times to your deadly advantage is worth it by itself. The progression of aggression, psychological domination, and gaining the half-second advantage -- a real eye opener.

PRINCIPLES OF PERSONAL DEFENSE
by Col. Jeff Cooper. $14.00
Here is the hard-boiled wisdom of a true legend, "The Father of the Modern Techniques of Shooting," the difference between survival or death in a criminal confrontation. His seven principles are stark and brutal (Alertness, Decisiveness, Aggressiveness, Speed, Coolness, Ruthlessness and Surprise). It's too much for the squeamish, but just right if you want to prevail against some homicidal maniac on a killing spree. An instant, violent counterattack is a total surprise to criminal aggressors, it is legally justified if your life is truly in danger, and as Cooper puts it, "The perfect fight is one that is over before the loser really understands what is going on." Short and sweet, with devastating impact.

BOSTON'S GUN BIBLE
by Boston T. Party. $33.00
An astounding compendium of everything critical for the modern gun owner. Starts with the legal framework for gun use–and safe handling, self defense concepts, tactics and training. Then covers weapons as tools of combat, with the pluses and minuses of combat handguns and battle rifles of all the major manufacturers, and hard info on caliber and cartridge types. Even goes into the reliable pre-1899 gun category. Continues with key accessories, special concerns for women, and how to acquire everything with reduced risk of governmental intrusion. Wraps up with a superb compilation of material on the civilian disarmament forces in America, who's doing what, and ways to fight back. Even includes some of my own best work, like the Politically Corrected Glossary. Concludes with a breathtaking section on courage and preparing for the worst while working to avoid it.

FORCE ON FORCE GUNFIGHT TRAINING
by Gabriel Suarez. $15.00
Takes gunfight training beyond the shooting range. Using non-firing replica firearms, these heavily photographed well-described scenarios match a pistol holder with an aggressive assailant in special face-to-face drills, ranges of conflict, hostile contact and confrontation solutions you cannot get at a range. Possession of a gun doesn't automatically give you (or an adversary) an advantage, especially if you know what you're doing and have practiced for confrontations.
