    Book: Armed Response: A Comprehensive Guide to Using Firearms for Self-Defense

    I purchased this book recently and I recommend that anyone considering the purchase of a weapon for personal protection read this. Especially the fist 30 or so pages.

    From one of the reviews:
    One of the best chapters in this book is about the dreadful impact of using your gun for self defense. Paper targets cannot shoot back or lunge forward with a knife. Your assailant may, can, probably will.

    The book cuts through much of the hype and just plain wrong information that issues from gun publications and, worse, from Hollywood.


    I could not agree more.

    The book covers a lot of missconceptions and lack of understanding.

    Paperback: 192 pages

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    My adorable wife gave this book to me for Christmas (Armed Response) and I just finished reading it. Great book. I've passed it on to my Nephew and when he's done - my brother...
