I have finally forced myself to declare The Beginning Prepper’s Guide to Firearms to be “done” and sent it up for publication. It went “live” Sunday night (February 24th). The intended audience for this book is anyone who is interested in “prepping” (preparation for disaster, whether natural or man-made) who has little or no experience with firearms. The list price for the book is $4.99, but you can get it for free (see below).
In the production of this book, I have tried to overcome the “handicap” of having more than 40 years of experience with firearms of all types, and I have tried to focus on just some basics. If you already have lots of experience with firearms, and are already seriously into “prepping,” then this book is not really for you (but see the last paragraph on this post). Assuming that I have the chance, I plan to produce follow-on e-books expanding on this general subject, as well as other topics of interest to preppers.
I am selling this book through the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) Select program, which (among other things) means that I can list it for free for a limited time. Note that you don’t have to have a Kindle device to read a Kindle book. There are free reader programs available for PCs, Macs, and most tablets, and you can also read “in the cloud” using nearly any browser.
If you would like to be notified when this book is available as a free download, you can do that by signing up for my mailing list at the bottom of this page (it’s a low-volume mailing list for important news affecting CHL/CCW holders) , or by putting my blog’s RSS feed into your reader.
Recent events have given me the foreboding feeling that this book may be too little, too late, already. Among other things, the current administration has decided it’s ok to assassinate US citizens without trial (although not on US soil — yet), and ammunition has recently become very hard to find, and very expensive if you can find it. But I’m pressing on with the book anyway. It’s now in the review stage.
If you do have experience with firearms (and prepping), you might be interested in reviewing the book to help me improve future editions. In that case, please use the Contact Form to let me know of your interest. I will only be using a few outside reviewers, and I will need a quick turnaround.
