Publisher's Summary

If you’re one of those people who spend your time worrying about hypothetical scenarios, you may have worried about what to do in the case of a gunshot wound. This is a realistic worry, as firearms become easier to obtain, and mass shootings plague the media.

What can you do to protect your family and those around you?

What should you do to be prepared to treat someone with a gunshot wound?

Where must you go to find out?

If you spend your time thinking about this repeatedly, imagining possible solutions for these problems, you’re one of those people who make everyone around them safer, and this book is perfect for you.

The search for these answers has led you to the right place; this book will teach you everything you need to know about gunshot wound treatment. You’ll learn about basic anatomy and physiology to develop a general understanding of how the body works, what could go wrong, and how to address it to sustain life. You’ll learn about ballistics and the kind of damage caused by a gunshot wound. You’ll learn about the proper use of bandages and immobilizations. You’ll learn how to apply CPR from beginning to end. Finally, you’ll learn the basic walkthrough to approach a wounded patient, step by step, and treat a gunshot wound.

All the knowledge in this book is up-to-date with the latest protocols and health guidelines. The information is reliable, precise, and safe to follow. The marines developed the scheme of the treatment-first approach to gunshot wounded patients used in this book, and it has increased their survival rate just like it’ll keep your family safe. The book’s designed to be a beacon of clarity between a sea of confusing and conflicting information.

After you’re done with this book, you’ll assemble a large first aid bag where every component will be there for a reason, and you’ll know how to use it. Most of the skills you develop will be useful for any situation, so you’ll know how to deal with injuries or accidents from a kid’s strain to a knife wound to the chest. However, an emphasis is made over the skills related to treating gunshot wounds.

Listen to this book from top to bottom, study it, practice the techniques described here, and prepare the best first aid kit you’ll ever need to treat a gunshot wound by following the instructions. The imaginary scenarios in your head will stop getting blurry and dark because you’ll know exactly what to expect and what to do. You’ll feel safer because you’ll know how to keep those around you alive and safe; there’s no effort too big or expense too high to get that safety for you and your family.

Overall a really informative and great read

Overall a really informative and great read from cover to cover. Most importantly the Author did not ramble on about personal stories. Most stories were of "what not to do" which was cool Im giving it 4 stars due to me feeling that it wasn't so much focused on modern firearms

I can only reply by what my grandson told me about

I can only reply by what my grandson told me about the book. He is in ROTC at school and has a keen interest in firearms, the history and making of them. I had asked him if he liked the book and he said he liked it a lot. As an Army veteran myself I encourage my children and grand children to learn the history of our country and world history. The history of war and the weapons that were used to fight them are an important part. War is an abomination, yet we continue to wage them against one another. This book does not glorify war, or violence it simply explains the mechanics

Excellent helpful book for the person

Excellent helpful book for the person who works on their own firearms. Another excellent book is the same author’s earlier and somewhat more fundamental Gunsmithing Made Easy. The current book is more advanced. Both proved invaluable to me on recently installing Timney Triggers in Remington Model 700 and Model Seven/7 rifles. I really appreciated the help they gave me so that both installations were done well. I look forward to using these books on other firearm DIY jobs.

The book now gets a well deserved fifth star.

The book now gets a well deserved fifth star. While discussion of sears was nowhere to be found in the index or in the main text, a superb description of its polishing and that of the trigger engagement is found in a multi page sidebar.

Excellent book with lots of details

Excellent book with lots of details and black/white photos. Some words are misspelled but that doesn’t detract from the book unless of course you are anal (you know who you are ;)).

I’m about 25% through the book and am really enjoying it. He also talks about other brands/models for comparison but never in a negative way.

Good overview

As many have said this is not original for the author totally. That said it has a lot of good information in it. If you like Glock pistols you will find this book interesting and useful. Glad I have it.

super book

Excellent book that provides a wealth of information about Glock pistols, It identifies the different generations, their rarity and why they are rare. All facets of the Glock pistols are presented in a basic chronologic order of manufacturer. I would have liked a complete list of part numbers by model and their interchangeability. All in all a super book for Glock fans and worth every penny!

Everything good

I was recommended by a friend to read this book as I was shopping around for a compact concealed carry fire arm. I did not know much about the glock firearms so before buying I like to do my research. Forums and keyboard warriors are a feeble source of knowledge. I wanted something concrete. Something that someone with fact to back up what they were saying. This book recommended to me

This one is really all you need. It's got chapter

This one is really all you need. It's got chapters on all of the different Glock models, plus chapters on field stripping and cleaning, and many other topics. And it has color photos, an added bonus.
