    What about book reviews or recomendations? Every once in a while they pop up here and I remember talk of an SI reading list at one point.

    Maybe articles about eating whatever you want whenever you want it, followed by articles about accepting personal limitations and using equipment to compensate for poor life choices. Er, excuse me, “circumstances completely beyond our control”.

    Justifications for “good enough” fitness.

    A list of shooting standards that are simple to meet, without too much effort.

    “How to get the most from cheap ammo.”

    More than anything, we need a really great list if recommendations on how to make better excuses. How to make everyone nod their head in agreement when justifying life choices/standards/equipment.

    I see a great business opportunity in offering a new class: “Excuse-making 101”. Graduates will be eligible for “Justifications for Professionals”.

    Lord knows their is room for improvement in this arena, and demand would be high.

    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.

    First aid advances ( not even sure if there have been any since the quikclot formula was revised), especially in regards to GSW treatment.

    - A "war stories" segment that talks about actual incidents that you or others have been in that were either instrumental in developing current SI curriculum, or reinforced it

    - An AAR series reviewing use of force incidents. This might be best done as a video blog. There are a number of Youtube channels that do this, but obviously none of them have an SI background. Perhaps you could pair incident reviews with a FOF video demonstrating the right, or better, thing to do.

    - On the video note, it would be interesting to see some video work demonstrating how much SI products and TTPs make compared to those of others. That doesn't necessarily do anything for us here, obviously, but might ultimately be good marketing. Things like side-by-side shooting irons vs red dot at distances, low light, or other situations; FOF "Stand-and-deliver-in-my-perfect-weaver-stance" vs SI-style get off the x, etc...

    - Also on the video note, a history lesson for those that don't know about when and where SI started, how the techniques came about, and when they were developed (pointing out, of course, that they predated all of the johnny-come-latelys.
    Echoing the TTPs and lessons learned ("war stories") from real world experience. These are invaluable and is in contrast to all the armchair theory, second guessing and gun games crapola that prevails across the internet and many schools. I'd like to hear more from those who've Been There, Done That and even Had That Done To Me. It doesn't even have to be a gunfight or an actual fight at all; sometimes violence is circumvented and short-circuited by smart decisions and cool heads.

    While reviews of gear are a dime a dozen, evaluation of gear that has gone through wear and tear -- both real world and hard use training -- is educational, instills confidence and sets up shooters for options and solutions. For instance, how to deal with damaged sights (or optics) in a gunfight is an example.

    Tradecraft and the psychology of a violent encounter are also items of interest. These have been discussed on and off in the forums, but perhaps a more organized presentation would be of interest to the group.

    I think you'd have A LOT of folks here who would LOVE to read stories from the "Old Days" in Southern Cali law enforcement. Seriously. And not just the what happened and what who did to whom, but also what weapons were used at the time , cars, hi profile cases and events, Rodney King riots, etc. I think you could fill up a blog with that kind of stuff and people would tune in every day to read about it.

    In a few of your classes you have mentioned the reading list and the importance of learning from the past. I second the notion of a reading list. You could split into a historical vs more modern books, East vs West, more modern gunslingers vs fighters of any historical period.
