    How many people here have read these 2 books?

    Anybody who carries a weapon for self defence should without a doubt buy and read both of these books a couple times.

    It teaches ya how the mind works and what you will encounter if you ever shoot somebody, or are shot at.

    Check out the web page as well, it's got some great info!!

    With respect; it verges on the eXtreme CQB aspect of shotgun-chic. Kind'a like the guy selling himself as http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum65/5942.html

    Or analogous to Armstrong's book 'It's not About the Bicycle.'

    Or, is "hoplophilia" better than hoplophobia, though still a paraphilia?

    There was a thread on required reading...

    I read OP a couple of times before deciding to respond out of consideration for your previous posts.

    Hericletus said it better than I ever could.

    Of every one hundred men, Ten shouldn't even be there, Eighty are nothing but targets, Nine are real fighters...We are lucky to have them...They make the battle. Ah, but the ONE, ONE of them is a WARRIOR...and HE will bring the others back."--Hericletus (circa 500 BC)

    The fighter's and warriors are the ones who reads and understand those books, they are the ones who who prepare not only in body but in spirit & in mind.

    Those books have been written by and for people who have seen the elephant & walked away both intact along with others who were both physically and mentally injured. Lots of superb quotes and statements/stories from people who have been there and now understand why the human body & mind reacts the way it does.

    Spurious attribution absent citation.

    Heraclitus' 'Fragments' are freely available on-line and do not contain the word 'hundred'.

    Believe nothing you read or hear unless you validate it yourself or it fits your pre-existing world view.

    Matthew 13:13
    Therefore I speak to them in parables: because they seeing
    see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand

    The conspiracy of ignorance masquerades as common sense.

    Personally I don't think I need a "warrior mentality" while I'm shopping at walmart. I think a lot of people obsess over "having" (read "getting") to shoot someone. I care about being proficient with my tools, and I practice with them. I study a little in tactics and prepare myself mentally for the possibility of having to use my weapon. But I don't obsess, and I don't consider myself a "warrior". I consider myself a man, and as a man it is my responsibility to protect the people in my life that are weaker and unable to protect themselves. That doesn't make me a warrior, and neither does reading books or playing video games or studying at Thunder Ranch.

    I'm sorry if it hurts your feelings, but to me anyone who considers themselves a "warrior", but has never been involved in a war, is a poser. I live in a somewhat peaceful society where I hope I never have to dispatch a couple of gangstas to their maker, not some war zone where I am battling soldiers to the beat of machinegun fire and grenades.

    Well said. Hear hear here. Or to the sound of screaming torpedoes. Bravo Zulu Veterans. They serve, who stand and wait.

    Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth. LAB/NRA/GOP *******

    Sad to say you don't understand and refuse to open your mind to the concept.

    Why is it you have this idea & people who have been there done that do not?

    You do not have had to be in the military and/or been involved in a war to be a warriror.

    I think you are confusing "warrior" with "armchair commando".
