"Armed & Female - Taking Control" by Paxton Quigley will take you down some scarey roads, but will also provide you with the tools and skills to be learned and practiced. It will also provide you with information about different types of handguns for personal defense. "Firearm Fundamentals", just like the title says, will provide you with the information you should know as a gun owner. This is a valuable resourse tool. "The Complete Glock Reference Guide", also is just what the title says. Anything you want to know about a Glock, you will probably find in this book.
