February 11, 2012, 07:38 PM
Hey everyone, Ive browsed many different forum and multiple times there have been people talking about self defense and concealed carry and there are those books that are a really good read and nearly every person should read.
Does anyone recollect which books are the holy grail of CCW holders or have suggestions?

John Farnam & Massad Ayoob both focus most of their training on the needs of the armed private citizen. Their books are a reflection of that. I've had both of them as instructors multiple times over the last 30 years and recommend them highly
