I got two very nice compliments on my book (the Gun Digest Book Of The Revolver, in case you’re just tuning in) this week.
The first was from a lady who chose a revolver for her own personal defense needs, and was pleasantly surprised to find that my book helped her learn how to handle her gun when her auto-shooting CHL instructors fell short. She said some very kind things in her email, and I’m glad that the book was available to help her in her quest for self-reliance. Knowing that I’ve been able to help someone from afar is a great motivator!
The second came in a book review from Greg Ellifritz, over at his Active Response Training blog. Greg’s been writing for a while now – though his entry into the blogosphere is relatively recent – and is one of the few people who isn’t afraid to buck conventional wisdom. His “Alternate Look At Handgun Stopping Power” made waves when he released it last year, as it dared to attempt to quantify something that a lot of us have suspected all along: there isn’t a whole lot of difference in effectiveness between the major handgun calibers. His conclusion? There isn’t, and he’s got the evidence to prove it.
In short, he’s my kind of guy. His review was quite complimentary, and I’m gratified that someone of his experience and standing in the industry appreciated what I had to say.
