What The Experts are Saying

"Just as you would have a fire extinguisher in your home or car, or take a course in first aid and CPR, you need to consider how well you are prepared for the other kind of deadly threat that may suddenly present itself: a violent, criminal attack on you or those who depend on you. In this book, Massad Ayoob has brought together all the essential elements that you need to know if you are currently carrying concealed firearms or if you are considering doing so. This is your opportunity to take advantage of all of the research, knowledge and experience that Mas has accumulated over more than four decades. I can’t think of a better teacher." - Steve Denney, Firearms and Defensive Tactics Instructor

CONCELMENT Review by EDDIE CREECH

I LIKE THE BOOK AND I THING A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT DO NOT KNOW HOW TO HANDLE GUNS NEED TO READ THIS. BUT I AM A 20+MILITARY VETERAN 11B INFANTRY TRAINED IN EVERY WEAPON THE ARMY HAS I DO NOT THINK THAT I SHOULD PAY SOME OFF THE WALL INSTRUCTER TO TEACH ME HOW TO USE A FIREARM.SO I CAN GET A CONCELED WEAPONS PERMIT. ITS A SCAM AND A SLAP IN THE FACE FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL. I LIVE IN KY AND THE COST FOR THIS IS OUTRAGUS AND OH I FORGOT I WAS A CHIEF OF POLICE AND SCHOOL TRAINE ACADEMY AND I STILL HAVE TO GET THIS CLASS HUM- BUG

Great Book Review by Andy

Concealed Carry seems like such a simple concept, but it's not a fool-proof method of self defense. Not by a long shot. The type of gun you choose, how you train with the gun, and how you train to articulate your position -- these are important considerations that aren't always thought of by us well-meaning law-abiding citizens. Massad Ayoob is an expert on not only the technical aspects of self-defense handgunnery, but he has here an accurate study of the legal aspects and emotional implications of concealed carry. Vital information so you can protect your family and yourself from the evil in the world.As the Associate Editor of Gun Digest the Magazine, I wholeheartedly encourage you to purchase this book. Your life, and the lives of your loved ones, may depend on it.
