This book is conveniently divided into distinct chapters, allowing you to garner essential information on a topic without having to read through the entire book.

Part I
This first part introduces the new or non-shooter into the vast scope of firearms, with an initial emphasis on how to safely begin shooting.
Intended as a quick and easy initial reference, this book can familiarize you with the fundamentals of firearms, offering the specific information needed to safely learn how to shoot a pistol and other firearms.

Part I can also be used as an initial stage for formal training of a beginner's introduction to firearms (such as a two to four hour familiarization course). Training can include both classroom and range or field exercises. This book is NOT a tactical or defensive course. To gain proper knowledge and experience in this discipline, seek qualified one-on-one training.

Part II
An introduction to Concealed Carry, the things you need to consider if you plan to carry a firearm.

Part III
This section provides a more detailed purview, expanding into rifles, shotguns, sighting methods and much, much more.

A comprehensive reference filled with nearly 600 interesting and useful terms! Packed with relevant and sometimes little known information, you'll want to keep this Glossary close at hand, as an easy-to-use source for answers to most common shooting questions.

Quick Reference Guide can be found on the very last page.
