Justified Lethal Force - Tim Larkin, TFT
Seminar on DVD

"Use too little (lethal force), and you could end up at the mercy of a killer. Too much, and you’ll likely see your face plastered across the evening news. But there’s a simple solution, one we showed these Federal Agents and it’s exactly the same as what you need to guarantee you’re the one who walks away from a horrific situation alive!"
