EEK! ONLY A WEEK! — 7 Comments

  1. Books make excellent gifts. So do magazines. One can never read enough good books and one can never have enough magazines. If you choose to “gift” a loved one or friend with OEM magazines for his or her favorite projectile launcher, make sure to buy the correct magazines! Additionally, enclose a personalized note, reading as follows:

    “I tried without success for weeks to sell these darn magazines door to door. Nobody wanted to purchase them! I had over 1,000 front doors slammed in my innocent face. So, here’s the deal. You are getting these darn magazines that nobody else on Earth wants. I hope that you like them. These darn magazines are better gifts than fruitcakes or ugly sweaters, aren’t they?” (YES!😂👍🏽)

  2. One of my favorite gun related books is STREET SURVIVAL by Adams, McTernan, and Remsberg. The book was written primarily for law enforcement, but everyone can benefit from it as all gun owners should think like the police and use the same tactics when dealing with dangerous situations. I got this book back in the 1980’s before joining my first police department, so was much better prepared than most of the cops I served with and shared the knowledge with them and recommended they get this book and study it. All gunowners who carry their weapons should adopt the same tactics police use as these are proven methods which will make one safer in any armed encounters with the increasing numbers of bad people.

  3. Buying your loved one a membership in the Armed Citizens’ Legal Defense Network would be a grand idea. In addition to the protection it affords, new members receive 8 educational DVDs and Mas’ book Deadly Force.

  4. My recommendations would be Deadly Force, by Massad Ayoob; The Law of Self Defense, by Andrew Branca; and Not An Easy Target, by Paxton Quigley.
    And/or a gift subscription to Combat Handguns or American Handgunner.

  5. Agree with Gerald Okins above, and would add anything, preferably everything, written by Jeff Cooper.

  6. Well, Marty – seeing as I have already taken care of my ALCDN membership (and thanks for creating and maintaining the network, Sir!), I’m sure you would be OK if I were to invest in other areas, right? Seriously, to all those who live in a similar “arrangement” as Mas does, where guns are a very big piece of their daily puzzle, count your blessings. I am in a family situation where the only one who “knows” – is my bride – and I thank God for her! I have a growing list of books (to which I am adding your suggestions, Mas) that I fully intend to begin reading when I retire next year. Those books and all those reasonable priced, fully utile, Don-drools-over type of “gun presents” don’t exist under my tree. I am not crying, folks because I am extremely thankful for a beautiful, understanding spouse, living in the gun-friendly state of Pa., and… the greatest country in the world.

    Let’s all practice the philosophy of Condition Yellow and watch out for each other!

    Everyone – have a great Christmas!
