BONUS: On Killing/On Combat (w/ Pat Watson - Uncensored Tactical)
Play • 2 hr 17 min

In this bonus episode of The Statist Quo, our friend Pat from Uncensored Tactical returns to talk with Matt about two books that contain a ton of value, especially for vets, but great for anyone interested in self-defense.  They are On Killing and On Combat, both by Army Lt. Col. Dave Grossman (Ret.).  ;)

In these books, Grossman shares research he had conducted with law enforcement and military veterans who had been in deadly force encounters.  On Killing is great for some of the rarely discussed dark sides of combat, but the belle of the ball here is On Combat, a great guide to the psychological and physiological processes that happen when human beings find themselves in life-or-death situations involving violence.

Shockingly (or not), the VAST majority of content in this book is mentioned rarely, if at all, by the military, at least not in an official capacity.  Which is why we both strongly recommend reading at least On Combat for those who are or have been in combat arms or law enforcement.

Thanks for listening!  Go check out Pat at!
