if you are looking for AR pieces n parts…

Take a look at Black Rifle Works Ltd.

I only ordered a few springs and a Magpul baseplate from them, but I was impressed with their prices, availability (they say “if it’s on the site it’s in stock”) and speed of delivery.

For shipping USPS Priority Mail, I had the stuff on my desk as fast as or faster than stuff I have ordered through the “Big Name” suppliers that came FedEx or UPS. Worth a look if you are in the market for stuff. I have them on my list of trusted suppliers.

more about “On Killing” and “The Bulletproof Mind”

I have previously posted a few reviews of Col. Dave Grossman‘s presentations and books. I attended his “Bulletproof Mind” seminar last year and posted a review shortly thereafter.

Personally…I have nothing too “bad” to say about the Colonel’s works or theories. As a matter of fact I think that he is spot on in much that he says; but there is some stuff I think he is drawing erroneous conclusions from and I also think that he attempts to “cover too much with too little”.

I just read a critique of Grossman’s work over at the Police Policy Studies Council that dates back to 2001 and takes his stuff to task pretty handily:

He is very popular with police and military audiences.
He is a very likeable guy.
But, are there problems with his reasoning?
And, are some of his stated opinions actually detrimental to the law enforcement community?

READ & DECIDE!

The writer raises some good points and I believe that they worth some consideration if you are interested in the topic or are involved in MIL/LE training.
