I couldn't figure out which sub-forum was best to post this. So, I picked the "Carry Issues" section. Mods feel free to move it where appropriate. I don't recall where I heard about this book. I downloaded it to my Kindle and finally got done reading it. At 304 pages, it's a bit longish. In a nutshell, it's about how LEOs deal with using deadly force. The author does a nice job examining many stories (told by LEOs) from various perspectives including: Training When they didn't shoot. When they did shoot. Aftermath How it affected their families and friends. And, so on. The stories are told by the officers who lived them. It was interesting to read the various perspectives of multiple officers involved in the same shooting, too. Some were very detailed. And, in many cases, the perspectives (of the same shooting) were very different. How the officers were affected in the aftermath also varied from nearly no effect to devastating. Most of us on these forums can only speculate how we'd react in SHTF scenarios. We can train both physically and mentally. Certainly, most of us have not been involved in the use of lethal force. And few of us have had the opportunity to hear lethal force stories from those who have experience. This book is a collection of many lethal force stories. The book also humanizes LEOs. They're really no different than us... a spectrum of personalities, values, and backgrounds. Their reactions to lethal force situations - before, during, and after - naturally mirror the values, morals, and priorities of any "civilian." I found this book to be an eye-opening read. I did not find it to be a "page-turning, can't-put-it-down" book. But, during my daughter's horseback riding lessons and my son's hockey practices, I was able to get through the whole book without losing interest. I believe many here would find it equally compelling.
