Description

This superb new 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 favored 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 favored by hunters who can get five or seven shots in a powerful caliber, even with a feather-light titanium "snub nose."
