Good books

Hey all, I'll be getting my CCL next weekend and looking for a few good books on defensive shooting and CCW tactics.I need something to help me get my tactics in my mind. I know about Massad Ayoob and have a two of his books on order. I was wondering about any others. I'm also looking for a book from Colonel Rex Applegate. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Thanks guys

Tactical Pistol Shooting, by Erik Lawrence is not bad. He came out with a second edition also.

If one of the Ayoob books isn't In the Gravest Extreme, I'd add that one also.

Massad Ayoob: In the Gravest Extreme

IMHO: read slowly this book at least twice, then get on something else.
Better be judged by twelve than carried by six.

I'll add Dave Spaulding's "Combative Handguns" 2nd addition to the list. Good read.
