Also found here are Self Defense, Handgun, and Firearms Articles by Paul Abel. Paul Abel educates the reader about evaluating which handgun and caliber is the "right" firearm to have available in various circumstances and uses, as well as his insightful comments covering such topics as: practical self-defense, defensive hand to hand techniques, how to react when assaulted, law enforcement issues, and the enjoyable hobby-related aspects of gun ownership. Whether you're new to the world of guns and personal protection or a long-time gun owner or self defense practitioner, you'll find Paul Abel's topics interesting, relevant, and very practical for all.

NEW ARTICLES: Paul Abel comments on the best home or business defensive firearm: "the world's greatest equalizer", the shotgun, and passes on some advice he was given: to never take on a bad, armed person with a handgun if you could lay your hands on a good shotgun.
Another article by Paul Abel covers PERSONAL SURVIVAL TACTICS showing that no gadget or gimmick replaces good tactical firearms training. When you find yourself in a lethal confrontation, you will do what you have practiced. If you have not practiced proper handgun procedures and tactics you stand a large chance of losing any confrontation.
A practical article covers surviving an assault using defensive hand to hand techniques, illustrating that those who learn and use a few simple assault response and defensive hand to hand techniques can turn the tables on the bad guys during an attack.
In "THESE OLD SIXGUNS" Paul Abel reminisces about various handguns and exhibition shooters, and how he became involved in shooting lectures and programs for schools and civic groups.
His latest article asks the unsettling question: "WHERE ARE WE SAFE?"
