Concealed Carry. The Shooter's Guide to Selecting Handguns. By Wiley Clapp. Paladin Press. 2002. 111 pages.
This is a superb basic primer for the first time or inexperienced gun buyer. It's a bit dated, having references to the expired Clinton AWB and a few handguns that are no longer available, but it's still a valuable source of information for the beginner.
There are chapters on defensive handgun ballistics, choosing manstopping calibers, handgun types and characteristics, & small, medium & large auto pistols & revolvers.
Very highly recommended.
