TC 3-22.9 - US Army
Armorer's Manual AR-15/M4/M16 - Chris Bartocci

Others I would like to add to the shelf:

TAPS - Pat McNamara
Anything by Jeff Cooper
Vickers Guidebooks

Please keep adding to the list!

Hopefully some of these titles are readable/visible via zoom feature. I don't know where to start. Strictly trigger pulling, or the foundational, "mindset" stuff first? Cooper? Grossman? Then Varg, of course, which has to follow him up. Ben Stoeger, Paul Howe, Pat Mac...

I don't any to add but I love your bookshelf. I have a few of the same. Howe's "Leadership and Training for the Fight" is a worthy read even if you aren't carrying a gun proffesionally.

Impressive bookshelf, as an aspiring sheriff's deputy you have quite a few on my list

I guess my question would be what are you wanting to pass on in particular? In what context? For self defense? Military? LEO?


To start with, I'd recommend Varg Freeborn's 'Violence of Mind'. Knowing what your mission is will help to fill in the gaps as to the remainder.
