I wrote the original Understanding the Use of Handguns for Self Defense as a text to use in my handgun courses. It was designed to be used before class so the student could decide if they wanted to carry a handgun.

Over the years my skill as an instructor grew and I revised the original into the new work seen here. I also was able to score a introduction from one of the rising talents in the field, Brandon Bateman, I fully expect him to one day take over as one of the top tier instructors, and being held in the same regard as Col. Cooper, Clint Smith, and Mas Ayoob.

Please consider giving a review for this work, even a short review helps tremendously
