"No Second Place Winner" had been recommended reading by a friend who thought I might enjoy a serious read on firearms and their handling.
I did not need to be convinced that firearms are both good and bad, helpful and harmful - it is, after all a tool - like a circular saw, only the user controls the use and outcome. The writer, Bill Jordan, drives home the care and responsibility needed to handle firearms correctly.
I thought initially that the book was going to be one of those dull, tedious reads where you force yourself to stare at each word and try to tie subject, sentence and meaning together. Dull - no; but serious - yes. Jordan has a way of putting the reader there with him in his story telling, and there are a few stories that he draws from his many years of law enforcement experience where you can almost feel the desert sun, hear the sound of the trigger being cocked and feel the remorse when a friend is lost in a gun battle.
Every profession has its' up and downs, but Jordan drives home the weight of being in law enforcement and the responsibility of strapping on a gun for 30 plus years. Mr. Jordan takes the firearm and shows how important it is to be the very best at what you do; of taking that 'tool' with you every day in law enforcement and using all the cunning, lessons learned, experiences and advice and finishing on top - after all, in a gunfight there are "No Second Place Winners", only headstones.
