    An excellent manual of self-defense, August 31, 2000
    By 
    Kirk Webb (Boulder, CO USA) –

    From the title, one might think that this is just another book about the mechanics of loading, aiming and firing a pistol or revolver, of which there are many examples on the market today. This book is much more, however. The first half is more about the “why” of defensive shooting with the “how” very well presented in the second half. There are excellent chapters on the legal justification of using lethal force, as well as practical aspects of self-defense situations such as how to interact with the police afterwards. What are the common physical reactions that self-defense shooters suffer? Mr. Farnam lists and describes them. How much do you tell the responding officers after a shooting, and what are the pitfalls for you? Mr. Farnam covers these in detail.
    Coverage of the draw from a holster, grip and stance, as well as loading and unloading, are covered in exhaustive detail, with separate sections for different models. Revolvers? Manual decockers? Colt Government models? Double Action Only? All covered clearly and thoroughly. Lots of pictures add clarity also.
    For anyone who wishes for a worthy successor to Massad Ayoob’s “In the Gravest Extreme”, an excellent book that desperately needs updating, this is it, in my opinion. No longer do I have to recommend Ayoob’s classic with the admonition “just ignore the firearm descriptions; they’re way out of date”. Now I can just recommend John Farnam’s handgun book with no hesitation. I think it will be a classic, too.

    Detailed information on defensive handgun operation, March 2, 2004

    In this book, established and well known firearms instructor, John Farnam gives very detailed instruction on how to operate handgun in defensive purpose. There is also some discussion about tactics, and even of such less-discussed subjects (in this context, anyway) as information security and the like.
    The book starts with chapters on mental toughness, personal tactics, law and other “mental skills”. There is also chapters on different defensive weapons, first aid for gunshot victims and instructions on dealing with police in case you have to defend yourself with a firearm. This is interesting stuff, although I found it a bit strange that this information was the fist thing in the book. Usually, these things are discussed only after instructions on how to operate the gun. But it is a matter of opinion if this arrangement is good or not. What really strike me as odd, was that Farnam seems to have somewhat paranoid attitude towards police and legal system. That is especially strange concerning that Farnam has a backround in law enforcement.
    After that there is a very detailed instruction on different handgun operating systems, mechanical systems and general technical details of a handgun. For someone interested in technical details, this might be interesting reading. But I suspect that an average reader is not this much technically oriented, and therefore this information is too detailed for a book like this. After all, I suspect that there are not that many people who go to a gun store to buy “a rotary barrel handun for self defence”, rather they might ask for a Beretta, for instance. Therefore I feel that most of there pages devoted for technical detail, would have been spent better if they had been used for discussing tactics.
    The last part of the book handles the basic operation of handgun. As with the previous part, the information is very detailed. However, in this subject there is really need for detailed information, as not all people carrying a handgun get hands-on instruction from a qualified instructor. Therefore, this part of the book can be recommended for a novice shooter.
    If you are a novice handgunner, and are buying only one book on the subject, this fills the bill very well. In addition to instructions on basic handgun operation, there is lots of material on laws and other aspects of the issue. If the mechanics section does not interest you, you can always skip it. What really bothered me was that Farnam has somewhat paranoid attitude towards society in general, and law enforcement in particular. But you can decide yourself, how you feel towards those things. For more advanced student of defensive handgunning, this book can still offer some interesting pieces of information.

    A Must Read For Anyone Interested In Personal Defense, September 1, 2000
    By A Customer
    John Farnam has created in this book an encyclopedia of information for the student of personal defense. John Farnam is recognized as a world-class firearms instructor. A survivor’s perspective and years of teaching experience have given him the tremendous ability to analyze, distill and describe the latest advances in defensive training. Although Farnam has written two previous books on this topic, this one contains much new information and is anything but an update.
    Much of the lifestyle and tactical advice in the book applies to everyone. Even to those who do not own firearms. The guidance on interaction with police officers and the criminal justice system alone is worth the book’s cost. Much of this information cannot be had from any other source.
    John Farnam brings an engineer’s perspective to the technical descriptions and analysis of all common handgun action types. His distilled non-diagnostic approach to handgun manipulation is widely accepted and taught within the law enforcement and civilian training communities.
    This book is a must read for anyone who is even remotely interested in personal defense. The beginner will gain a comprehensive and easily understood foundation. Serious students will benefit from all of the new advances.
