This book is a good read for those that do not know their Constitutional rights or the ones that didn't pay attention in the concealed carry class.
Really it didn't tell me anything I didn't already know, but I am sure if you give it to a person in your life that wants to protect themselves but doesn't have a clue about the law this would be a good place to start.....wish I would have read it before i the accident....never mind....
Oh and save yourself a little jank and buy it used.....

I bought this for my wife but decided to read it while she finished the book she was reading.
Even though I am a well trained shooter and shoot competition, I found the book was a GREAT book for novices and a good reminder for those of us who have been shooting "all our lives" (really?).
If you have someone in your family new to handguns or you yourself only know minimal, get this book.
It is easy to read, easy to understand and gives you a excellent foundation.
