This book is excellent...it really helped me in deciding how to properly store the guns in our house...and talks about the advatages and disadvatages of keeping it loaded for self defense. It provides a lot of information that I can use now, and also teach my children. The chapter on emergency first aid is awesome...gives a detailed list of exactly what modern combat gauze dressings and tourniquets to buy, and where to buy them. I aso learned a cool fact...what is the number one sign that you are about to be attacked by a criminal?
Definitely buy this book...the authors are experienced and know what they are talking about. One author is a triple trained expert...an emergency physician, soldier, and law enforcement officer...who has been involved in over 100 SWAT callouts. And he is qualified EXPERT in all the major gun types. I'm very happy I bought this...very useful!

This is one of the best books I've read about self defense and personal safety. The book covers a 9-step process that teaches about firearms, how and where to get the proper firearm training, and what the key parts of that training consists of to become a good shot. Most importantly it taught me the basics of gun safety and self-defense.
The First Aid chapter is excellent... it has a list of detailed medical supplies to make a home first aid kit in case a family member is hurt. I found the Children and Firearms chapter very helpful and so very important.
This book is especially interesting and different because it was authored by two medical doctors. You can tell the authors are experts not only in their medical professions, but also with guns. One author is an emergency doctor who works at a level One trauma center, is a University of Illinois College of Medicine Associate Professor, and has been a law enforcement officer for over 15 years and has also been a soldier for 14 years... I'd definitely trust what he has to say... especially since he has been involved in over 100 SWAT callouts. What they have written in the book makes PERFECT SENSE and I'm glad I bought it.
My nieces and nephews will now be safe when they come to visit... Thanks to this book, I now feel confident in how I store my gun.
