Ed McGivern needs no introduction to gun enthusiasts and serious marksmen. For more than 50 years he was revered as one of the top authorities in the field of small firearms. A world champion marksmen who made "The Guinness Book of World Records," he trained scores of law enforcement officers and developed a system of teaching that is as effective today as it was when this book was originally published. It resulted from years of experimentation and research conducted by McGivern, who utilized electric timers and other devices to determine the angles and techniques that would produce the fastest, most accurate revolver shooting. Packed with handgun lore and original photographs from the first edition, this much-sought-after classic contains a wealth of facts for marksmen everywhere. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for hunters and firearms enthusiasts. We publish books about shotguns, rifles, handguns, target shooting, gun collecting, self-defense, archery, ammunition, knives, gunsmithing, gun repair, and wilderness survival. We publish books on deer hunting, big game hunting, small game hunting, wing shooting, turkey hunting, deer stands, duck blinds, bowhunting, wing shooting, hunting dogs, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a "New York Times" bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
Perfect book! Lots of guidance, true expert shines
This is a great book. A true expert who devised and developed his great skills, explains in very clear terms and nice easy-to-read language how you can reach the same level - of course if you invest a comparable amount of training. Ed McGivern describes in details what kind of practice brings results - and demonstrates proofs from his personal experience, and from that by his students - thus clearly showing that these techniques can be taught.
His langauge is great, his sense of humor is impeccable and non-offensive. If Buddha were to write a book on revolver shooting - this probably would be it. :-)
I love this book, and recommend it to anybody who cares to gain mastery in shooting.
