5.0 out of 5 stars Concise, Informative and To-the-point December 27, 2012
Americans pride themselves on their second amendment, which for most of America's history has been interpreted to protect individual ownership of firearms. In recent years the Supreme Court has also upheld this view, and the right of every American citizen to own a gun has never been more firmly established on legal grounds. However, the politics of gun ownership has also become more contentious than eve, and this trend is most likely going to increase. These two opposing forces - legal and political - have created a very uncertain gun ownership climate, which in turn has spurred more people than ever into wanting to purchase a firearm.

This short e-book is intended for people who are considering purchasing a gun for the first time. It goes over the good and bad reasons for wanting to own a gun, and emphasizes gun safety as paramount. It is filled with a lot of sensible and useful advice, including further helpful websites and resources. There is a lot of information about guns out there, but if you have never owned a gun nor are close to any long-term gun owners, I would recommend this short e-book as the first resource to look into.

The book is overall well written, although it could have used a bit more editing. There are a few spelling mistakes and repeated words, but for the most part these don't detract from readability. I would have also liked to see some images or diagrams, as these would have helped with understanding the particular guns that were being discussed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful! January 31, 2013

For anyone considering the investment and responsibility (not necessarily in that order) associated with the purchase of a firearm, this 'booklet' offers many thoughtful suggestions. Gun ownership should not be considered lightly. However, in this day and age, gun ownership should be considered. It has been said, and I paraphrase, 'If you ever have need of a gun to protect yourself or your family or those around you and don't have one, you may never need one again'. Consider . . .

This is an excellent place to start your research on purchasing the first handgun. It boils it down to the basics and is a good launching pad for further research. If you have already done your homework on obtaining your first gun this might be mostly review as the info within is not new and can be found across the internet. So You Want to Own a Gun puts all the basics together in one place, saving you time in coming up to speed on your foundation of knowledge.
