About the Author:

Chris Bird is a certified concealed handgun instructor, a director of the Texas Concealed Handgun Association, and the author of Thank God I Had a Gun. He lives in San Antonio, Texas.

Review:

Chris Bird goes beyond the usual hardware and into the critical software: the ethics, the morality, the emotional and psychological elements of preparation, survival, and aftermath in a way that gives his book the third dimension of depth. I would recommend The Concealed Handgun Manual for the library of anyone who goes armed in public.”  Massad Ayoob, director, Lethal Force Institute, and author, The Gun Digest Book of Concealed Carry



“A really good book for someone who is not sure if they want to carry. It definitely fills a need.”  —Former Senator Jerry Patterson



Chris Bird’s text on this important subject is thorough and expert. Highly recommended!”  John Farnam, president, Defense Training International



The book explores all aspects and ramifications of carrying a concealed firearm. In addition to shooting instruction and guidance as to when it would be necessary to fire a gun in self-defense, the book also recounts many real-life events. This is an extremely useful guide for those who want to learn more about the world of concealed carry.”  Michael O. Humphries, American Rifleman



Through Chris Bird's significant journalistic talents, the reader meets numerous gun owners, and learns why they carry a defensive firearm. A good number of Bird's anecdotes concern women and how they came to carry a gun. Expect stories about female stalking survivors, women who used cunning and courage to emerge unscathed from home burglaries, survivors of infamous shoot-outs and more.”  Gila Hayes, Women & Guns



A must for those looking to carry a concealed handgun.”  The Second Amendment Foundation Reporter



These are all things you need to know to cope with the emotions that overwhelm you in such a situation. He also shows what can go wrong and how the consequences may not be what you expect. If you wear a gun, this is a book you can't afford not to read.”  Bill Clede, American Guardian Magazine



Although intended to show readers how to choose, carry, and shoot a gun in self-defense, it does much more. The final chapter gives an excellent overview for each state's concealed carry laws. I use it in my CWP class to help with questions about laws in other states.”  H. Richard Daniel, president, Gun Owners of South Carolina
