Don't Let Your Training Kill You by Chuck Taylor
"Some Common Sense Observations on the Myths & Realities of Weapons & Tactics Training" - The article's subtitle says it all.
On Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs from Lt. Col. Dave Grossman's
book "On Combat"
An excellent essay on why some put themselves in harms way to resist evil while others try to deny it exist. This is a page from Grossman's Killology Research Group's website and contains an active link to the site. Among other things, Grossman is an expert on mentally preparing for combat, what to expect as to physical and physiological effects occurring during a deadly encounter and how to deal with them.
After reading the essay I highly recommend you click on "Publications" at the top of the page. Once the new page appears scroll down until you see "The Bullet Proof Mind for Armed Citizens / The Bullet Proof Mind". Both are worth well above their actual cost and I strongly advise the purchase of either or both. I personally find the .mp3 download an exceptional value ($25.00 at this time) as I can review it while driving, reloading, etc.
