    A good threat subject to heed!

    I met the good Colonel at our state firearms instructors seminar some years ago. Very opinionated, yet astute in how he went about his life.

    He pulls no punches, and and isn't worried about offending anyone in this arena.

    Thanks for the reminder, been awhile since I read my copy...tis time to crack the book.

    I haven't read it, But I'll put it on my Kindle list and read it next.

    About the only books I have read on armed self defense are a couple by Massad Ayoob (Combat Shooting and Concealed Carry) and one more about legality's called "Infringed" by Alex Kincaid

    I of course have heard countless references to Jeff Cooper and read a number of those Guns and Ammo bits you talked about way back when.

    Ive always figured someday I would get around to reading some of his work, This was a good push. Thanks.
