We package all books in custom cardboard book boxes for shipment and ship daily with tracking numbers.; Originally published in 1935, Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers is a treatise on handguns of the early twentieth century. Written by Major Julian S. Hatcher, an expert on the subject of firearms of all sorts, readers will gain invaluable insight into everything to do with handheld firearms of the 1930s. In his introduction, Hatcher emphasizes that he has made an earnest effort to make this book accessible for both novices and experts. Novices who know nothing whatsoever about firearms and their use can easily learn from this book, while experts will find a technical reference book where “the results of many experiments with pistols and revolvers and their ammunition are tabulated in convenient form. ” Covering such subjects as the different methods of shooting and using hand firearms; their mechanism, care and repair; their interior and exterior ballistics; the peculiar suitability of the different kinds for various purposes; the relative effectiveness or stopping power of the various calibers and types of gun and ammunition; and many more, this book is an immense store of knowledge on early handguns. "This book is part of a spectacular collection of famous (and often hard to find) firearms classics that every thinking American should display with pride. Each volume is an exact facsimile of the original edition and is custom bound in leather.

Julian Hatcher has truly "been there" and writes extremely well. He knew almost every gun person from 1900 to about 1950, and worked with many of them. This book was written before the current fad in "plastic" handguns and the "spray and pray" method of their use. It is a true classic and should be in the library of any person really interested in firearms.
