Book Description

Are you... GUNLESS?
Is that safe?

The perfect book for first-time gun owners --

The perfect gift for gun owners to keep handy for their gunless friends!
"The common-sense book that can move hearts and minds."

This easy-reading Q&A guide answers the questions,
helps you with the tough decisions,
walks you through the maze of tech talk, doubts and fears,
so you can make an informed choice.

Help convince yourself, your spouse and others that becoming armed
is a safe, prudent, wise choice for an adult in American society.
Just like 100 million other citizens, affluent and working class alike.

If you suffer a break-in at home, can you protect yourself or your family? Would you be forced to dial 911... and wait? When seconds count, the police are just minutes away—that's why so many Americans have made a safe and prudent choice to keep at least one firearm at home. Maybe it's time for you to do that too. While you still can.

Despite fear mongering in the "news" media, tens of millions of people keep and bear arms and always have. It's a fun, practical and safe sport and tradition. It's true. Find out why!

In plain English and without the macho mumbo jumbo, Your First Gun moves past the scare stories and myths, and in simple Q&A format answers the key questions non-gun owners wonder about, that so many gun owners, wealthy and working class alike, take for granted.

Get this book for friends and relatives who fear guns to help them move past their worries.

Help people at least understand why so many good, decent, honest folks keep guns for all the right reasons.

The media hides these truths from the public—you can actually help change the public debate and improve the safety of American society by putting this rational common-sense information in the hands of people you know and love.

Do you want to DO something to protect your rights?
This is it.

About the Author

Alan Korwin, author of six books and co-author of eight others, is a full-time freelance writer, consultant and businessman with a twenty-five-year track record. He is a founder and two-term past president of the Arizona Book Publishing Association, which has presented him with its Visionary Leadership award, named in his honor, the Korwin Award. He has received national awards for his publicity work as a member of the Society for Technical Communication, and is a past board member of the Arizona chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Mr. Korwin wrote the business plan that raised $5 million in venture capital and launched the in-flight catalog SkyMall; he did the publicity for Pulitzer Prize cartoonist Steve Benson s fourth book; working with American Express, he wrote the strategic plan that defined their worldwide telecommunications strategy for the 1990s; and he had a hand in developing ASPED, Arizona s economic strategic plan. Korwin s writing appears nationally regularly.

Korwin turned his first book, The Arizona Gun Owner s Guide, into a self-published best-seller, now in its 25th edition. With his wife Cheryl he operates Bloomfield Press, which has grown into the largest publisher and distributor of gun-law books in the country. Built around ten books he has written on the subject, it includes the unabridged federal guides Gun Laws of America and Supreme Court Gun Cases, a line of more than 250 books, buttons and DVDs, and more than 1,000 radio and TV appearances. He was an invited guest at the U.S. Supreme Court for oral argument in D.C. v. Heller, which led to his 11th book, The Heller Case: Gun Rights Affirmed. His 12th book, on the limits of free speech, Bomb Jokes at Airports, was followed by After You Shoot: Your gun s hot. The perp s not. Now what? His 14th book, in 2013, is Your First Gun.

Alan Korwin is originally from New York City, where his clients included IBM, AT&T, NYNEX and others, many with real names. He is a pretty good guitarist and singer, with a penchant for parody (his current band is The Cartridge Family). In 1986, finally married, he moved to the Valley of the Sun. It was a joyful and successful move.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good introduction to a first gun purchase April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Full disclosure... I already own several guns, including self-defense and sporting guns. I read this out of curiousity and to see if this was a book I would recommend to friends who were considering a first gun purchase.

I think this is well written and pretty complete. All the major issues to be considered were very well address, and Alan left in some teasers about more advanced topics one might want to explore after a purchase. I can recommend this book in good conscience.

To those of you interested in a first gun, don't stop here after a purchase. I urge you to join the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network. There are significant benefits to joining, not least of which are the 6 DVD's they will send you immediately. Those DVD's have critical information every gun owner should know about when you can shoot and when you cannot, and what to do after a shooting, if, God forbid, you should have to defend yourself.

The author Alan Korwin puts forth in black and white the best advice regarding gun ownership. I'm an old guy that's been around guns just about my whole life. With the boom in new gun owners, I felt that I may not be able to give the right advice to anyone considering their first firearm. I've heard the author speak and believe he covers the topic better than most anyone. After reading his book I feel now that I could cover the topic and it's responsibilitys when asked. It's good reading for anyone considering gun ownership, and a good reminder for those of us that already are. Buy a copy for yourself, and another for a friend.
