T&T video's and books??????

Are books and video's to teach tactics and training methods worth while or a waste of money?

Some are very useful while others simply spread useless information and preach poor tactics.

Erick, I was told that video's and books are pretty useless. Can you suggest some that are useful?

threegun-
Not Erick but I can recommend the books The Defensive Shotgun and Hit or Myth by Louis Awerbuck. In my opion, Principles of Personal Defense by Colonel Cooper should be part of any library for those concerened with force issues. For videos The Combat Shotgun, Only Hits Count, and Safe at Home (all by Louis Awerbuck). All of the above are available from Paladin Press.

Two other Awerbuck books, Tactical Reality, and More Tactical Reality are compilations of his Training & Tactics column that have appeared in S.W.A.T. over the last couple of decades. Neither of these last two have many tips that will get you to shoot better, but both are guaranteed to make you think.
