The same case can be interpreted five different ways by three different juries. And laws can be enforced differently but one Officer on a simple traffic stop, and another might impose them differently. It all depends on how they personally might intrepid them. A simple misunderstanding can result into an avoidable-scenario, and yet made into a difficult-situation.
    We have a book here (WA) that comes with your permit. It doesn't have interpretations, just the actual legal code... but our legal code is written really well, and leaves little to legal interpretation. Most of the case law around it has been reaffirming of the obvious basic interpretation of the law as written.

    Every state should have a handbook with interpretations of the CCW laws. I would pay a few more bucks to get one with my CCW. I did pick up a copy of the Florida gun-owners book, seems like it's well worth the money. After safety, what is more important then knowing your state's law regarding CCW and states you travel to?

    I agree. It shouldn't cost much, ours comes free with the permit (printed by the Department of Licensing and the Department of Wildlife), and our permit is one of the cheapest in the country at $56.

    I like The Ayoob Files myself because it gives many examples of the reality of gunfights....how stress affects even the best shots, how multiple shots with high caliber ammunition still dont 'stop' assailants, how things tend to go much differently than planned or imagined, etc.

    There are other sources of that kind of thing too, and videos.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    If what you want are stories, the aftermath, and critique then Chir Byrd has your huckleberry. Concealed Carry Manual and Thank God I Had a Gun have 14 stories each, successful and unsuccessful examples of self defense.

    There are stories about all the different calibers studied in the Marshall/Sanow books. People get killed with .22s, people survive .357 mag JHP, and lots in between. Sometimes people shoot their armed attackers, but get killed before the attcker stops or dies. It makes you realize there are no guarantees.

    If you live in Florida I absolutely agree with Chefjon! Run, don't walk to your closest gun shop and buy this excellent book. Many law enforcement agencies use this book for their reference. It is a MUST have. Plus you can go to his website and print out changes and updates until the next edition. It's a shame all states don't have someone doing the same thing for their state.

    I nominate this thread for sticky status. Is there a formal way to make such a nomination?
