      I made sure and told my wife when I got home from his presentation that I wasn't the only one who carries in church.

        I have On Combat signed and personalized from him. One of my bosses is good friends with him, and got me the book without me asking. It is a great book and he is full of knowledge. Just reading On Combat has helped my outlook about going on duty in a totally different way, and dealing with stressful situations.

          Here's why I carry in church: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/law/j...ting_9-16.html

          The CSI on this case taught my advanced crime scene class. I got to see all the details, pics, diagrams, etc of the case.

          Alarmingly... there were two off duty officers present who could have ended the killing had either had an off duty weapon.

          Violence has no boundaries, no rules, and devours anything in it's path UNLESS met with equal or greater resistance.

            our unit has had several of his training videos and I really want to attend some of his trainings in person.

            http://www.warriorsciencegroup.com/index.html will take you to his site and you can check his schedule for trainings and locations.

                Any of the others? I've sent 3 or 4 requests to Itunes to get his work. Haven't checked in awhile.

                  Nope. "On Killing" is the only one.

                  I wish the others were on there.

                    I also had the pleasure of attending his seminar today at Sacramento. Very good speaker, really opened my 21 year old eyes. I was reading On Killing and purchased On Combat from him ( also had him sign my books. ).

                      Read his books and attend his seminar.

                        He has talked at our PD and I attended one of his school violence seminars. Pretty cool to see teachers and school admin. people almost keel over. Nice and personal man. Takes time to autograph and talk. Knows his stuff as well. I emailed him once. I figured he probably gets a "million" emails a day. What really impressed me was a day later I had a very nice and detailed email. Go to any of his talks, buys his books, or even catch him on the History Channel on some shows.

                          If you ever get the chance to attend one of these, definitely go. If you don't know who Lt.Col. Grossman is, then do yourself a favor and beg,borrow or buy his book "On Killing" or "On Combat". I have read "On Killing" and am starting "On Combat". They are excellent reads on the Psychology of combat.
                          X 2 One hella of a guy. I attended his class earlier this year. It was great.

                              I'm halfway through "On Killing" and I have to say woow. I'll need to read it a few more times to absorb all of its info.
                              Anyway, I found a link To his "Bulletproof Mind" lecture on youtube and thought I'd share (and its free)

                                FYI..if you have ipod or MP3 you can download On Killing from Audible...

                                Me: At least someone recognizes it.

                                Turns out basic police work isn't so hard, you just have to leave the station.
