I commend this fine book to you for your reading enjoyment and practical applications.

Col Ben presents the information in an intelligent, thought-provoking, objective style, and offers many useful suggestions and tips. This book is the one self-defense reference book that truly responsible gun owners must read from cover to cover and have available to refer back to. It genuinely gets you to think about the issues and is a down-to-earth and easy-to-read resource. I have had the pleasure of knowing Col Ben for a number of years and have enjoyed reading his work relating to firearms training and concealed carry. He has much to offer. Without hesitation, I recommend Ben’s outstanding concealed carry and handgun essentials book.

5 reviews for Concealed Carry & Handgun Essentials for Personal Protection – eBook

  1. Perry B.

    This is a fantastic book! I am very impressed with how comprehensive it is yet written with a style that is easy to read, comprehend and remember. I am an active NRA certified Instructor and Range Safety Officer and a Marine. This book has become my go to reference book which I review often as I try to emulate its style while instructing students as well as helping shooters at the range. I am amazed with how much information is available in this one book for shooters of all experience levels. I highly recommend this book as one that you will not only benefit from immediately, but also one you will surely not bury in a bookcase after reading. Instead you will keep it out and review it often.

    I have read many fine articles from Col. Ben on various firearm related websites. I have always found his advice to be most useful and most of all “practical” in real world application. Just as I have read many of Massad Ayoob’s books and always appreciated his years of experience, I also find Col. Ben to be yet another fine teacher who has many decades of military, law enforcement and street experience. His credentials are exhuastive. This latest book from Col. Ben seems to be rapidly gaining a lot off acclaim for it’s incredible content (57 Chapters and 272 pages) of text, graphs, charts, useful demonstration images and most of all real world experiences.

    There are many who merely author books and render advice, but there are very few like Col. Ben who truly know what they’re talking about. Individuals like him have actually lived a lifetime of real world firearm use. I cannot recommend his work any higher. Anyone serious about carrying a concealed firearm (which are now millions of Americans and growing) needs to get the right advice from the beginning. This is a book designed for all levels of firearms knowledge. Whether you’re a beginner or an old retired law enforcement officer of four decades like myself . . . you’ll appreciate the exhaustive information presented in this fine book. This is a “MUST HAVE” in everyone’s collection of firearm instructional and reference materials . . . and it just may save your life one day.

    This book has a lot of excellent guidelines for properly shooting and carrying a handgun for self defense. It gives not only proper skill techniques but also brings up many issues and handy suggestions for using my gun for personal protection in unexpected confrontations. A must have book!

  4. Peacemaker

    Col Ben’s book has a lot of practical information for concealed carry and shooting guns correctly. He gives a lot of details and goes into the steps and specific things to improve your shooting and gives you some really helpful ideas about what to do in a dangerous situation and the legal things. The checklists, charts and shooting techniques were very good reviews for me an experienced shooter. His Concealed Carry Guidelines and handling common carry mistakes were outstanding. The easy to understand examples helped me to learn some new things about self defense, stand your ground, and deal with all the legal possibilities. I liked the chapters about things you don’t find in other books like facing dangerous dogs, traveling on planes with guns and ammo, warning shots, and others. If you’re going to get a carry permit, his criteria for selecting your gun, caliber, holster and belt will definitely help and with all the suggestions it’s worth it.

    I am so jazzed about this book “Concealed Carry and Handgun Essentials for Personal Protection”! And it is not only about CC, but also perfect for beginners on the “essentials” of handguns – period! I bought 25 of these books for our Annie Oak-Tree Ladies shooting group @ Oak Tree Gun Club in Southern California. I read a chapter from the book named “Clip or Magazine – Does it Matter?” on a few weeks ago and was impressed with its simplicity yet thoroughness at the same time – and knew I had to buy copies of the entire book to share with my fellow female shooters!

    I’ve referenced through it a few times and can easily comprehend everything that I’ve read. And the questions at the end of some of the chapters asking “us” what we think make great discussion topics. I go onto the various gun forums sometimes and the people get so technical I feel like I need an Engineering degree to understand – and that takes all of the fun out of it! Kudos to Col Ben Findley for writing a book that’s concise, thorough, yet easy to follow and do.

    I highly recommend it for all levels of shooting experience!
