How many Florida members have bothered to read the book... "Florida Firearms Law, Use and Ownership Sixth Addition or newer?

My entire family has read this book and I've recommended it to every permit holder I know. I think Florida concealed weapons permit holders are negligent if they don't read it.

I agree with you my friend, i finished it yesterday and hope anyone in Florida that carries or owns a gun should buy the book.

You can find the book at
ORLANDO GUN, WEAPON, & SELF DEFENSE LAWYER JON H. GUTMACHER, Esq. | Florida Firearms Law Book

I use it as a reference with friends and encourage people to read it, whether they are using firearms or not. I encourage the girls I work with to use at least pepper or a taser and show them the sections about less than lethal self defense. A number of them have started looking at getting their licenses. I have given away 3 copies but it is for a good cause.

I got my copy when I took my CCW class. I think it is a must for Fl members.

Read it twice

I have read it twice, and started on the third.

Read, shared with family, passed to my boss (he's licensed), strongly recommend to any Floridian. DOACS sends us a copy of the statutes -- boring but necessary; Gutmacher shows us case law --very readable and just as important.

Not only that, both my wife and I carry Jon's card in our wallets and have his number in our cell phones.

Good guy. We're lucky to have a reference and advocate like him in FL.

Read it twice and a half (in process re-reading).
Refer to it regularly when specific questions arise.

A must for keeping this guy's butt out of the pokey, so to speak. :redface:

I wonder what the FL LEOS think of this book? Post that question in the LEO section of the forum...
Used in 8 LE academies, and by 80+ LE agencies, IIRC.

Just found out!

After asking some questions which are not so easy to understand in the statutes GoldenSaber and several others mentioned this book. It has now gone to the top of my list and I will get a copy very soon. Thanks to GS and others who have offered assistance.

I read it when it FIRST came out but I usually rely on Marion Hammer's group Unified Sportsmen of Florida to keep me abreast of new laws headed my way, so I'd be careful in slinging around loaded terms like "negligent" were I you. Gun owners everywhere have a duty to stay up on local, state and federal law but the means by which they achieve said edification is up to them.

I recently purchased the 2009 version of the Sixth Edition. It has replaced my dog-eared 2006 version. Both versions have been thoroughly read and are referred to frequently.
