Contact II – The Kindle Thing
There has been an issue with purchasing the new second edition of Contact, for those who already have it on their Kindle. I am in touch with Amazon about this. It will likely resolve one of two ways:
1) You will eventually be able to update to the new version through the ‘manage your kindle’ Amazon page.
2) They will free it up for re-purchase.
I suspect the first option will happen, but this may all take up to four weeks to resolve. It is really in Amazon/Kindle’s hands.
However, I will say this: I am strongly of the opinion that a manual such as Contact II should be purchased in hard copy version. It is not only easier to read and reference, and go back to diagrams and all that, but it will outlast the collapse, whereas your Kindle won’t. If you already have Contact I on Kindle, then take this as an opportunity to purchase the hard copy of Contact II.
There has been a little bit of carping from some quarters about the fact that I have brought out an expanded second edition. To listen to some of you, I have done you a disservice. I copy in this comment on the original POST as a summary of what I think of that:
Um, hello? It’s $20 – and he added 200 pages. Buy it already.
And yes, by relaying my experience and training in this way it also helps to put food on my children’s table. That’s a free market economy right? If you are reading this blog, you do support that right? To listen to some of the comments, some people appear more at home in the FSA with an entitlement attitude, rather than willing to shell out a small amount of cash for a wealth of knowledge and information. Grasping fuckers.
“This Is America! We are coming for the Free Shit Army!”
For the majority who have supported me by purchasing these books, I thank you. In reality, it was royalties from book sales that allowed me to open my training site because it allowed me to purchase expensive items such as the electronic pop-up targets and the Ranger Crew to shuttle you out to the site. This has all been invested into the training site in order to allow me to bring the standard of training that I wanted to liberty minded folks, to prepare them for the upcoming festivities. At the rates I charge for training, I’ll be in the red for a while. That’s why book sales help.
It’s all for the cause of Liberty, right?
I can tell you that those electronic pop-up targets and all the rest of the investment into range gear will not feed my children SHTF, but I hope it will allow me to train sufficient numbers of good honest liberty minded folks to be able to survive, which in itself may have a cumulative survival effect.
In the meantime, if you want something free, earn it (so it ain’t free, really).
If you are looking for a Kindle book, then I recommend a novel, such as Patriot Dawn.
Also, Bracken has a give-away going on his Enemies Trilogy. I just downloaded one free and purchased the other two. See THIS POST for comments on gouging free shit off Bracken. He is doing it to spread the word for the cause of Liberty, but I’m sure he would rather actually earn a royalty from his hard work.
