    Hello Mas. I'm watching one of your videos right now titled "Judicious Use Of Deadly Force":



    I'm 41 minutes into it thus far. It's VERY well done, and I really enjoy the way that you explain things with clear and precise meanings. You don't BS around, and I like that.

    I have a few questions:

    1) What year was this, do you remember? It looks like the mid-1980s, or am I way off? ETA: I think it was 1990.

    2) Knowing what you know now, would you change anything of what you discussed in this video in 2020, or are there any key issues/points of discussion which you would add? Not sure if that is something that can be explained here in short order though, or if it would require something like a new book to explain more thoroughly.

    3) Do you still tuck your polo shirts into your jeans? :animlol:;)

    Thanks for everything you do for us Mas! Take care, and stay safe.

    It was 1990.

    The basic rules have not changed.

    I was wearing a Smith & Wesson 629 Mountain Gun in .44 Magnum, in a Milt Sparks OWB holster. Would have looked kind of funny trying to hide that under an un-tucked polo. I now tuck the polo into cargo pants instead of jeans: more comfortable, and more pockets. :cheers:

    Best,
    Mas

    Awesome. You're a treasure Mas, never change. And again: excellent video. It was so ahead of its time that it's still relevant today 30 years later. I think that is a big part of your legacy; that your lessons and your wisdom will carry on long after all of us are dead and gone.

    Thanks again Mas! :cheers:
