Description
Containing information on current state regulations, beginning and advanced shooting instruction, updated safety information, and accounts of incidents of concealed handgun self-defense, this comprehensive handbook intends to prevent gun owners from becoming the victims of a criminal or terrorist attack. The book offers advice for selecting and buying a handgun, discussions of the importance of self-protection, methods for concealing weapons, and an examination of the mental attitude required in case of an armed encounter, as well as advice on how to avoid violent encounters entirely. In addition to providing a current list of handguns suitable for concealed carry, this updated edition includes new information about the psychological ramifications of using deadly force against another human being and provides information and context from recent events, such as the mass shootings at Virginia Tech and in Tucson, Arizona.
