Not Patrick'sbest Review by Vince Morgillo

I suppose if you know nothing about handguns this would be a good read, more or less. The book is filled with a lot of rambling and corney comments. Less than half of the book talks about the 45acp. I am a Patrick Sweeny fan, but not for this book. I do not recommend it.

Great book! Review by Andy

As an associate editor at Gun Digest the Magazine, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. It's a hot commodity at the office; it's one of those books where people come up to me at the water cooler and ask if there are any spare copies lying around.Tons of history. Tons of pictures. Tons of information on modern cartridges and firearms. If you're on the bubble, go ahead and buy it. You're gonna like it.
