This superb reference book describes the most popular of these revolvers -- Colt, Smith & Wesson, Sturm-Ruger, Taurus and others -- in words and superb, high-quality photographs, documenting their design, technology, and how they shoot. It also describes what they can achieve in precision shooting and discusses trigger pull weight and groups. Double action revolvers -- in which the trigger cocks and drops the hammer -- are more popular and much favoured by bodyguards and security service personnel, where having a weapon that is both inconspicuous and handy counts more than firepower or the quickest reload. These weapons are also favoured by hunters who can get five or seven shots in a powerful calibre, even with a feather-light titanium "snub nose".
