I subscribe to a Good, Better, Best philosophy when it comes to preparedness resources.  I would rather have a good piece of equipment RIGHT NOW, than have plans to buy the best most ultimate piece of gear someday.  Then as I learn to use that good piece of equipment, it helps me know what too look for when I have the resources to upgrade.

Once you start to understand the fundamental skills contained in the non-fiction must have list, you may want to learn more details.  This next list of recommended specialty books is a little more in depth.  It will be followed by a third list at a later date.

According to Wikipedia Massad Ayoob is an internationally known firearms and self-defense instructor. He has taught police techniques and civilian self-defense to both law enforcement officers and private citizens since 1974.

He was the director of the Lethal Force Institute (LFI) in Concord, New Hampshire from 1981 to 2009.  Ayoob now directs the Massad Ayoob Group (MAG).

More than that bio Mr. Ayoob writes some of the best firearm books on the subject of the legal aftermath of a self defense shooting.  I widely quote his work in my classes,  and recommend his books courses and videos to my students.

Revolvers are great defensive tools.  I find them to be reliable accurate and inexpensive self defense options.  However some people are turned off by the need to reload individual rounds rather than having a magazine.

Various speed-loader devices have been invented to deal with this issue, and the bianchi strip is one of my favorite.  In this video Ayoob shows a simple revolver reload using bianchi strips.

While bianchi strips are slightly slower than other speed-loader systems, they are much simpler and have no moving parts to break.  I also find them to be easier to conceal due to the flat profile.

I don’t know how many times I have said that I keep guns for the protection of my family.  While I enjoy the shooting sports, and I respect the Founding Fathers and understand the civil rights issues of gun ownership.  I keep guns because I have an deep need to protect my family.

Working in the State Penitentiary system I see people that have made their living using violence against the innocent.  I know how deadly home invasions and the like can be.  This video shows some tactics for dealing with violent home invasions.  This is important as Home Invasions are on the rise.

I have always taught that while knowing how to gunfight is vital if your going to carry a gun, you are MUCH more likely to have to deal with a policeman while going armed than getting in a gunfight with a criminal.

I like how Ayoob approaches the subject as he gives tips when stopped by police when carrying a weapon.

One thing I feel the State of Tennessee dropped the ball on when updating the Handgun Carry Permit was they took out scenario training videos like this one and replaced it with Troopers talking about drugs.

Lets face it Armed Citizenry that apply for a state permit are not likely to smoke meth, but they should know how to act when confronted by police officers while carrying their weapons.

These Tips When Stopped by Police is very good information and I hope you find it useful

Shooting on the range against static targets is pretty easy – but we do it to gain skills that will help us survive when the targets shoot back and we have life on the line rather than bragging rights.

Having a close range action plan is pretty important because it helps deal with everything going on when everything going on is rapidly changing, confusing, complex, and life altering.  Just know that what Tyson said about plans is true “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”
