This is a book I keep going back to to re-read. Highly recommended.
Read that book back in January. It is a great read for all the reasons mentioned above.
It includes so much between the covers, and relates important incidents, such as the story of the woman who lost her parents at Luby's Cafeteria, in Killeen, Texas in 1991.
As many here know, she survived, then went on to successfully champion the 'right to carry' in the Texas state legislature.

I agree, Hands down one of, if not the best book on civilian ccw out ther right now. I have the 3rd edition and have read it twice. I recommended it to a freind to read and it actually helped her in her decision to get her own ccw permit. She was undecided before reading it and as soon as she gets her permit , she is using it to find a school to further her training.
I picked this up the other day on a lark. I enjoyed it for its clear, sensible and reasoned approach to CCW. I believe it is a very good book for those who may be on the fence about CCW. My wife wanted to read it immediately after I was finished and has liked it thus far. I think the book does an excellent job of explaining the how's and why's of CCW.
I don't think experienced CCW'ers will necessarily get a lot out of it but again if your spouse is "iffy" about the whole thing but still willing to learn, this is an EXCELLENT read for them.

thanks for the info , i went to the T-town show this weekend with 3 goals in mind .
1 to hook up with a couple of you experienced carriers-the big cell phone killing expo building riuned that.
2 to find a custom leather dealer and procur a mag holster- i was dissapointed in the lack of leather products (i could have missed them )
3 find this book - i accomplished this task and found some of the info i was hoping to glean from p95carry and others.
Thanks for the great review Capt'n. I had looked at this book at Barnes & Noble the other day and was undecided on the purchase. Your review made up my mind, Thanks again.
Nice review. I re-read this book from time to time...especially the reports of use-of-force. I found the incident of mistaken identity on the Interstate and the crap the shooter (righteous shoot, btw) went through afterward to be sobering and thought provoking.
Thanks for the review. Im reading this book at the moment and finding it very useful, I especially like the real-life accounts of incidents.

Funny, I just ordered that book yesterday off amazon. Got it for 12.00$ used.
I am looking forward to the read, especially after the great review.
I have this book. The Captain is dead on with his review. Excellent book,and you will gain a lot out of it. This book is really worth buying,reading, and going back to read and to reference again. Thanks Captain Crunch.
I agree with Cliff ++1 Captain
Ok, I'm sold. Time to go find a copy.
Thanks for the excellent review!
I read most of that book on a recent visit to the States, and very interesting it was too. Highly recommended!
This is one book I sugest all my ccw students read. I jsut wish there was more time in the class to go over some of the stories in the book. I hope some of my students will get it and read it for themselves. I feel ccw is a big responsibility and students should continue learning beyond their ccw class. I also suggest this web site!
I have had the book for a while and it pretty much sums up the whole CHL class in Texas.
Great Review Captain!
