    I have written a book for new shooters (the basics on handguns, selection, laws, holster types, training, and self defense psychology).

    What I need is a test group that will be honest, (yall all know mom is great, but how Honest is she?)

    What I am looking for is to see how realistic and understandable my explanations are for beginners.

    Not all of the pictures are in created yet, but other than that it is pretty much done except last minute proofreading.

    I will email a pdf copy to anyone interested.

    One question, why would you come to a site called opencarry.org to advertise a book you are writing that contains the following statement:

    As previously stated not all states require the
    handgun to be concealed. While as a proponent of the 2nd
    amendment of the U.S. Constitution I applaud such laws, I
    discourage the practice of open carry to my students.

    There are many reasons for this, some legal some
    tactical. In today’s society many people either
    uncomfortable or downright afraid of being around a
    firearm. Anytime we as armed citizens make those sheep
    scared of us we erode our ability to continue to carry.
    If
    you carry in the open someone will most likely call the
    police. Police will come if called because of a “man with a
    gun” call. Being to recipient of such police attention is
    not something you would like to repeat.
    Carrying a gun is a private choice, not something to
    be shared. This is not to say you should be ashamed or
    hide. The opposite is true, the decision to take personal
    responsibility is admirable and something to be proud of.
    The reason you should keep this private is the same as the
    reason to carry concealed. You don’t want people with low
    morals and an axe to grind to have the ability to accuse
    you of “brandishing”.

    What do you think would happen if a soured ex of yours
    called the police and said you threatened them with a gun
    and then described it and where you carried it? Then what
    would happen if the police responded to find the exact same
    weapon where it was described?

    If the above are not enough I have another reason for
    concealed carry. Tactics, criminals pick those they think
    they can beat. Criminals are not fair, nor do they take
    chances. If you carry in the open and are still attacked,
    rest assured they will give you no chance to get to your
    gun; it is most likely they will kill at the onset of the
    attack. It is also possible for them to take your open
    carry as a direct challenge and specifically target you.

    All the bold statements are the typical arguments about open-carry, you know those that occur a lot in conversations but you rarely see in reality.

    I'm not saying you don't have a right to your opinion, just saying seems kind of to tout a book to the folks of opencarry.org with those types of statements.

    Oops, point taken

    I am pretty embarrased,

    But I must say that it is not for the rights portion that that I don't open carry it is for the tactical aspect.

    Either way, your right.

    I am not touting, nor am I promoting, what I am wanting are those with well formed opinions to look over the document to ensure that I have a defensible prospective.

    Thanks,

    I have been over here kicking myself for not watching who I was spamming... (LOL) actually, I chose this forum, as it is not quite as big,but I know that the members have put more thought than normal into their method of carry.
