Over a decade ago I published two books with Paladin Press consisting of articles I’d written, some original material, and some guest-written chapters. The themes of both were the two themes I had written about for years prior: 1) the necessity of integrating empty-hand training with firearms training, and 2) the necessity of force-on-force simulation training — both for both cops and civilians. I am pleased that much of what I advocated strongly for then is now accepted wisdom and part of good / advanced training. And I’m not so pleased that I (and many other like-minded trainers) had so little impact on the plethora of low-end instructors. Oh, well.
Paladin Press at that time had gone from being the first amendment poster child, to being the first amendment poster child and a valuable publisher of, for a better word, “tactical” subjects. The people I worked with there – mostly Michael Janich and Jon Ford – were real professionals and a pleasure to associate with.
Since they have recently closed their doors, I’m taking the lead of several other Paladin r authors and posting free .pdf downloads of my books. Just click on the images below to open or download them.
