I'm after some book / DVD titles that give good tactical training tips.

I already own:

Training at the Speed of Life - Kenneth Murray
Strategies of Low Light Engagement - Ken Good

I also already have Grossman's On Combat and On Killing.

Are there are other high-quality publications out there?

Someone recommended Todd Jarrett's "Pro Shooting Tips" DVDs to me, but they...dunno....just look....can't explain it....weak? :confused:

Thanks...

Tap, tap....is this thing on?

Additionally, I'm also looking for a book on Combat Life Saving training or similar.

I'm spending a lot of time on Amazon, but it takes a while to wade through the irrelevant.

I've got Jarrett's shooting DVD's (basic&advanced). Honestly you can find alot of the same thing on Youtube&typing his name. The DVD's are ok. He's very good at explaining things. He also has a tricked out race gun&not standard duty issue weapon. I've heard Magpul Dynamics The Art of the Tactical Carbine DVD's (Volume 1&2) as well as Green Eyes and Black Rifles: Warriors Guide to the Combat Carbine by SGM (ret) Kyle E. Lamb are the bees knees in their own right.

I'll have a scout around for something on First Aid that would suit.

I second Paul Howe's books. I have read both books and trained with Paul in TX. Anything he does is quality...

I'm not a big fan of "tactical" books/dvds, but I'd recommend "Book of Five Rings" (Go Rin No Sho). Written by Miyamoto Musashi.

If you want to progress on your shooting, look at what the most top shooter read or have read:

"Practical Shooting, Beyond Fundamentals" by Brian Enos
"Shooting From Within" by Michael Plaxco

I've made the mistake of buying just about every DVD on shooting out there. By far the BEST is:

The "Burner Series" with Jerry Barnhart.

There is a LOT of information, in fact too much information. He goes into great length on things I don't care about, but I ended up watching the whole series and taking parts out that I found to be useful.

And another book to be released in about a year-and-a-half:
"Shooting From Within My Pants" by Plaxico Burress

Sorry....I just had to....

Just wanted to thank everyone for their input.

I purchased the Magpul Dynamics DVD's, Lamb and Howe books, and am very impressed with them so far.

Thanks again.

Paul Howe just came out with his second book: "The Tactical Trainer". Highly recommended.

If you enjoyed Grossman's On Killing and On Combat, get his "The Bulletproof Mind" DVD series. It's a great one we watched during SFAUC.

I'm not sure "enjoyed" is the right word. Something along the lines of "epiphany" would be closer!

I liked: "To ride, shoot straight, and speak the truth" Jeff Cooper. Got to skip the african hunting portion. There's other Cooper books that I cannot remember that are worth it.
