Review:

"Carrying a deadly weapon is too serious a matter to go unstudied. Chris Bird's work serves as a fine textbook for those who have made, or are considering making, that commitment." —Will Cox, Gun Week

"Outstanding . . . a really good book for someone who is not sure if they want to carry. It definitely fills a need." —Jerry Patterson, former state senator of Texas, sponsor of the Texas Concealed Carry Law

"Bird teaches through illustrative stories of self-defense and survival experienced by moms, laboratory workers, electricians, and other everyday people who learned, sometimes the hard way, the value of the self-defense handgun." —Gila Hayes, Women & Guns magazine
