In the gravest extreme

Have you heard of this book entitled "In the gravest extreme" by Massod Ayoob? It was first published 1980 so some of the suggestions on choice of firearm are a little outdated; technology in ammunition and delivery systems has advanced quite a bit and was unavailable to the author at the time, but the principles he speaks of are timeless. I highly recommend it for beginners or experienced carriers wanting and willing to protect themselves and their families. I am going to order another copy and read it again.

Ayoob is a knowledgeable person. I like his videos. Probably couldn't afford one of his classes, but I heard from a friend who did take his class that she can now call upon him as an expert witness if the need arises.

Aim small, miss small. (one of my favorite shooting expressions)

Oh, I'm not sure the hardware is that outdated. After all, we shoot pistols first invented in 1905. I think Super-Vel ammunition was out by the time of that book, so lighter high-speed hollowpoints were available.

If anything, I think the big advances came to revolvers. There was a time--even as a joke in the first "Lethal Weapon" movie--that people thought revolvers were passť no longer an advantage for law enforcement.

Now we have scandium frames and revolvers that fire eight shots. The same bullet technology available to automatic pistols is also available for revolvers.

The double action automatics of that era were clunky, so there's an advance right there, for sure.

In the gravest extreme

He teaches up here couple times a year. He just ran a course here last week. He's getting old but still very capable. His courses get sold out almost every time.

I highly recommend that book, as well. I bought a copy many years ago when I first started carrying concealed. There are a lot of things to consider regarding the use of lethal force, and I think this book really makes one think.
