Ruger produces some of the most over-built firearms in the world, and that’s a good thing in my feeble mind. I like the fact that, Ruger firearms are not over-priced, not in the least, and you can usually find them for a lot less than retail, if you shop around – again, that’s a good thing.

I like supporting people who not only talk the talk, but walk the walk. Still need to buy Vol. 1, to complete the set, which will be money well spent, again.

    I agree with your response John. The books you have written are not available anywhere. As I read your books and worked thru the thought processes with your book Forging The Hero, I had to really make my brain work hard to comprehend and apply the principles to my life. I could understand and "feel the pain" of your efforts. I was hesitant to spend the money you requested for each book, but now I would pay $100 bucks for one because of the content.

    Well yeah two good points. First is the material from Mosby is worth it; there are lot of Abn/Ranger/Green Berets (this is how we start our day) out there teaching tactical shit; Mosby goes beyond that with a lot of practical advice for self-sufficient living. Second, I would rather subsidize his group than some outfit I have no clue about. That probably donates to the LGBTQ minority handicapped socialist workers party.Honestly this is nick-picking the fly shit. The only real criticism is he isn't mass-marketed, cheap, and readily available. So if that keeps you from getting his info, you're a dumbass. But not my problem.

    I wouldn't even call that a negative review. It's like someone who buys a book on nuclear engineering, then complains that it's too deep for his model submarine building fetish. And he got the book for free, so he never had to make the value judgement and plunk down his own cold, hard cash. Being a hobbiest, I'm guessing he never would've bought it. IMO, the negative review you're looking for will come from a True Believer.With regard to the price: much too much is expected for nothing these days. Everyone wants, even demands, free content. I paid the big jing for your books because of the content, but more so because I thought it rewarded you for past work (blog and book) and would help support your future efforts. It's the same reason I willingly pay more for something to a local vendor vs ordering off the internet. We've got to get beyond price shopping and realize that we're not just buying a thing, we're choosing to support a person.

    Yup. Criticism is essential to improvement. Good reviews are nice, and one must recognize peoples' need to offer praise (I think it is kind of a reflexive affirmation of the validity and importance of their own experiences and opinions), but empty praise is worthless. "Thank you, I appreciate your need to nurture and acknowledge the importance of your feelers, but...what could I have done better?"Good praise: "I like that you offered x,y and z. How you explained such and so with depth. "but should be coupled with effective criticism e.g.:"your exploration of exhibit 1 would have been more effective with some background on its development as well as the current state..." or "more charts and illustrations would have helped"...FWIW: I offered some criticism of your first tome to the effect that editing the fracking sentence fragments, misspellings and misused words would go a long way to bolstering your credibility as both a writer and an expert on the subject. Whether you consciously took that advice or have merely grown in your word-craft, you have improved.As soon as my second mortgage goes through and I can by the next volume 🙂 I have no further input to offer.

    Ha, that is somewhat funny even though it may not be meant so. Typical millennial mindset of intellectual superiority. I put it in my hobby category, so it's not worth it. I have spoken.Well, even though this tool may have his own estimate of the situation, that does not mean everyone else must agree with it. You can do damn near anything you want, but if someone has a different estimate, then these books may damn well be worth every penny.I for one, totally disagree with his assessment. Therefore the books are indispensable to me. I have put it in my get ready for the shit category, so they are totally worth it. Do as you see fit.But he has no real criticism of the material, just the cost of a privately published book. Typical entitlement mentality. All things should be available to me-cheap.This hardly qualifies as any real criticism, IMHO. Just some snarky comments on the cost of the material.It's really hard to find fault with what Mosby is laying down. Only that his standards are really high, but then if that's what the reality is, then that's just shooting the messenger.I may think he's a total dick for pointing out all my weaknesses, but then that's on me to get un-fucked.So doctrinally, I can't really find fault. But can understand people getting butt-hurt by the presentation. Most people aren't used to this kind of thing.Would I leave feedback to say tone it down? No, not really. I think it's for most folks to harden the fuck up on the other side of that equation.
