Finally my book cue landed on this compendium of very logical and very good tips and advices by Massad Ayoob. This book may sound oriented to the new shooter but in fact it will address issues with all ranges of experience and I doubt that anybody will say “I knew all of that.”
The book is easy to read. Mr. Ayoob writes as he speaks: as a knowledgeable friend who is giving you firm and wise advice without sounding preachy or overbearing. It has the right amount of anecdote till you realize they are not anecdotes but true “Oh Shit” moments that taught a fundamental lesson and you better absorb that material, apply it and do it fast. Mas goes through every aspect of carrying a concealed weapon, from the gun itself to even to sock selection and how to wear them (ankle holsters anyone?) something I never ever thought about! Even when he dwells into the Open Carry v. Concealed Carry (a true formula to get emotions boiling among gun owners) he manages to impart the pros and cons of both without putting down either or raising the level of emotions.
Go get yours….
Disclaimer: I had the honor of meeting Mas during a couple of IDPA Matches, but that did not influence at all my review of the book. I am actually scared of Gail and her bayonet-topped Glock though 🙂 You just don’t mess with the PodMistress!
