Mark Walters, Host of Armed American RadioI’ve read a LOT of concealed carry books over the last seven years. As you can imagine, I’ve seen decent books, so-so books and I’ve seen utter crap! This book is, hands down, the BEST written and BEST laid-out book I have ever seen on the topic of concealed carry. Michael has done a phenomenal job on this!
