The goal of this booklet is to help someone make the right choice when they select their first handgun.

If you are just now considering the purchase of a handgun for self-defense, this booklet was written with you in mind. If you are a person friends look to as an 'expert', I hope you will find this booklet worth recommending. If you are looking for a firearm for a military or police environment, this may be helpful, but certainly not comprehensive. There are other books by authors with extensive military or police experience that will be more suitable for you.
