Handguns for Self-Defense provides easily understood explanations of what shooters need to do to fire more accurately. This book he explores such topics as:

Understanding the Use of Handguns for Self-Defense

This is my first book, as a long time firearm instructor, I wanted to write a book that answered common questions new shooters ask.

It is designed to help a person decide if they want a handgun, what kind of handgun they need, and the basics of both shooting it and using it for self defense.

The information found within form the basis of any basic firearm course and will definitely give a new shooter the proper start.

52 Prepper Projects

52 Preppers Projects started the series, it came from my attempts to learn to prepare cheaply while building my skills.  I took projects from this website and enhanced the instructions while adding pictures.

The idea behind the book was to give weekly projects that build skill while building preparedness.






52 Prepper Projects for Parents and Kids

Like 52 Prepper Projects, this book involves weekly projects, however, it is deigned to be done with children to teach them how to work with their hands and brains as well as develop self-reliance.

One thing different in this book that the previous 52 Projects work, is that at the end of each project talking points are given to teach why the project was chosen.





52 Unique Techniques for Stocking Food for Preppers

More than a cookbook, this recipe book teaches techniques.  In this book you learn to make cooking tools like a DIY dehydrator and cardboard box grill.

Additionally, you will learn how to store food and cook using traditional methods.






The Preppers Guide to Foraging

There is not enough land for every American to live a hunter/gatherer lifestyle, but understanding the uses of wild foods can definitely increase odds of survival during a large scale disaster.

This book uses both pictures and drawings to identify 25 common plants and give both food and additional uses for each.






Basic Survival: A Beginner’s Guide

This is my first Hardback, and the pictures make me feel like its a coffee table book, but when I wrote it I included all the basics I learned starting out as a prepper.

Don’t let the name fool you, this is not a wilderness survival handbook – it is a surviving emergencies handbook.  I believe in an all hazards approach to survival.  If you knew what kind of disaster would kill you a smart thing to do would just be to avoid that type of disaster.  Since no one knows what might happen to them, a smart person prepares to deal with all kinds of issues.

I take academic theory learned during my education as an Emergency Management Planner and add common sense skills learned by life as a prepper to bring you this book.

The Ultimate Guide to Pepper Spray

Nobody knows how to use pepper spray like corrections officers. With skill, command presence and a can of spray, a typical correction officer is outnumbered 128 felons to one.

In this book, I take my experience as a seasoned correction academy instructor to outline how to confidently and effectively choose, use, carry and decontaminate pepper sprays.

This book contains vital footnoted sections on applicable US State laws, information on mindset, and how pepper spray strength in measured so you don’t mistakenly buy the cheap stuff.

I am a long time use of force instructor and has certifications in law enforcement firearms, firearms instructor training, chemical agents, electronic restraints, specialty impact munitions, baton, and defensive tactics.


21 Days to Basic Preparedness

There is a lot of information available for those starting to learn to prepare for disaster. It can be intimidating, and confusing.

21 Days to Basic Preparedness is a short basic eBook where I take the experience earned as both a certified emergency manager with 12 years experience working in state level disaster preparedness and response as well as a member of the prepper community.

In this book I bring together state of the art emergency management concepts with tried and true prepper techniques in a way that can quickly and cheaply begin a families preparedness journey.
