What The Experts are Saying

"Like a Star Wars light saber, the revolver is seen by some as an elegant weapon more suited for another time. They're wrong. It's a very functional one, very serviceable in the here and now, and that's why so many folks still use them. Grant Cunningham has done an excellent job of explaining why." - Massad Ayoob

Gun Digest Book Of The Revolver Review by James

Very useful information for choosing and getting the most out of a revolver. Sections on fit of a revolver to shooter's hand are extremely useful.
