Very imformative.

I browsed through these, a few things that don't sit right with me. I'll address one of them, which involves the draw of a concealed handgun from the hip (chapter 13). He demonstrates the same draw with a revolver as he would with a semiauto. The blast from the front of the cylinder in that instance, if he was forced to shoot before fully presenting, would definitely hurt his feelings. There are far better ways of drawing revolvers out there.

I'd like to know how he lost the tip of his left ring finger.

While there is some good information in these videos, my issue is that presenting good information leads a non-skeptical or fairly new viewer to believe that all the information is sound and valid.

I watched all the videos. I saw and understand your criticisms, but there is some good info there as well. All in all, I'm glad I spent the time watching the video.
