He also takes a serious look at what it takes to defend oneself, it is not a hollywood movie set.
If you truly embrace his chapter on "armed" mindset you will very likely reduce the chance that you will ever have to use your firearm, and his advice on dealing with Law Enforcement is priceless.
Daves background as an NRA Training Counselor, and NRA LE Instructor gives him valuable insight in the importance of training both physical and mental.
As the Chief Training Officer of Mad Duck Training, I recommend this book to those thinking about getting a handgun for self defense, and to those that already do as a review of the knowledge they need to have.Understanding the USE of Handguns for Self-Defense
