One of the best-kept secrets in America is how often and how effectively ordinary citizens defend themselves with firearms against criminal attack or criminal threat. Criminology professor Gary Kleck of Florida State University estimates that each year about 2.5 million ordinary people in the United States use firearms in confrontations with criminals. In the most cases, a shot is not fired and the incident is not reported to police. Along with the bias of the mainstream media against portraying guns in a positive light, this results in these incidents occurring below the public's radar. The second edition of this comprehensive look at self-defense with firearms lifts the veil by recounting some of these incidents, from warding off a burglar in the home to coming to the aid of a police officer in jeopardy. Each incident is put into context with other self-defense actions and features descriptions of ordinary citizens to determine why they did what they did. The stories are rounded out by suggestions, often from the participants themselves, about what they might have done differently. The book has been updated with several newer and more timely stories.
Massad Ayoob draws from an additional three decades of experience to educate responsible firearms owners about the legal, ethical, and practical use of firearms in self defense-the armed citizens' rules of engagement. Deadly Force discusses: Understand the legal and ethical issues surrounding use of lethal force by private citizens Learn about the social and psychological issues surrounding use of lethal force in defense of self or others Preparation and mitigation--steps the responsible armed citizen can/should take "After forty years as a practicing criminal defense attorney, I know that what Mas says, teaches, and writes is the best, state-of-the-art knowledge you can get." ~Jeff Weiner, Former President, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Concealed Carry Bible A Complete Self Defense Guide A to Z There are too many books about self-defense and handguns, I know. I see them and read a few of them. But one thing I noticed lacking is how a gun can protect you in a self-defense situation. Most experts tell you what guns to buy, how to train with them, how to load them and how to shot them, but is that all you need to know? How do you find out when the time comes you will be able to pull the trigger? When I teach people about self-defense, I teach them about the ins and outs of handguns that are popular, how they work and what and how to fix common issues. But I hope that is not why you would read this book, I want to prepare you mentally, and physically and I want you to know all the laws that may affect you along with making you a master of concealed carry where you are comfortable, confident and will know when and how to use it if the time ever comes. I never thought my education and training would be put to test until one fateful day when I found myself in the middle of a gang related shoot out situation where I did have to draw my gun and use it. Let's just say I was little faster. That situation taught me a lot about the legal system and the abuse that goes on in the government everyday basis. But the important thing is I survived through it, and it made me a better person both as a human being and as an instructor who teaches self-defense through concealed carry. Regardless what you hear about declining crime rate, just remember the world population is growing at a much faster rate than the resources we survive on. When this happens you can imagine, more people will fight over the same resources than before. It won't surprise me if there will be a day when it will be "survival of the fittest" law meaning who has more strength, and power will win and have access to the resources. I am not trying to scare you; we are not there yet, it may never happen, but what if it does? Should we be ready? I believe we do. So if you can learn some basic self-defense handgun skills and learn to protect yourself and your family, it won't be such a bad thing would it? I tell my students, 97% of the people who carry guns will never have to use them on anyone, but it is there in case they ever need it. In my opinion, there is no harm in learning a new skill, specialty, if that skill can save lives.
