Geoffrey Boothroyd is an excellent and authoritative write on the history of firearms, particularly as in the volume; on Handguns. The writing is fluid, interesting and technically competent. The color photos and diagrams of the firearms are a real aid to understanding how they function and the mechanical developments over time. He can't stop raving about the The Handgun book and thanks me every time we talk! He's ex-military and says this book is the best and most accurate information on guns he's ever studied. He loves all the illustrations. The Handgun is a great gift for anyone interested in guns.

Books: All the Gun Digest books Practical Gunsmithing Gunsmithing: Pistols & Revolvers. I also found this Magazine: American Gunsmith. David W. Arnold's, "Shoot a Handgun" is a good primer, if you can still find a copy. Local libraries may still have Larry Koller's books for new shooters and hunters. Haven and Belden, "The Colt Revolver, 1836-1940" is a worthy classic.

I recommend this book highly and consider it one of the top ten books on handguns. You will not be disapponted.

Very well written, goes into great detail of firearms from the earliest arquebuses to the more modern semiautos, including many handguns and designs that I have never even heard of. A fascinating read.
The author describes not only handgun designs and operations, but in many cases, the thoughts and intentions of the designers.
Warning: This book is HUGE, about 9x12 inches and 2 inches thick. Not something that you'll want to carry around for casual reading.

I bought this book for my brother after he said he used to check it out of his public library, but he couldn't find anymore. He can't stop raving about the The Handgun book and thanks me every time we talk! He's ex-military and says this book is the best and most accurate information on guns he's ever studied. He loves all the illustrations. The Handgun is a great gift for anyone interested in guns.

This is one of the greatest books on handguns, especially from the British standpoint. It is a very large book with complete coverage of the subject. It is well written, easy to read, and very thorough. The black and white photographs are excellent.

I recommend this book highly and consider it one of the top ten books on handguns. If you can find it, buy it and read it. You will not be disapponted.
