Gun Digest Book of the Revolver
In Revolver Doctrine, you'll learn virtually all aspects of living with the double-action revolver: shooting, handling, carrying, maintaining and accessorizing. Whether you're new to shooting, or just to the revolver, this book will teach you what you need to know to operate the quintessential American handgun: • why the revolver is a good choice for self defense; • how to fit the revolver to your hands; • which grips work (and which don't); • the various ways of carrying spare ammunition (and the situations where one is better than another); • how to clean and maintain your wheelgun; • sighting options (and what to do if your eyes aren't as young as they used to be); • holster options; • how to pick ammunition for practice, competition or defense; • the secrets of sight adjustment; • performing fast and efficient reloads appropriate to the situation; and even • what malfunctions can occur and how to clear them rapidly and efficiently. These are optimized procedures for using the revolver, not warmed-over autoloader techniques! Whether your revolver is used for sport, hunting, or self defense, you'll learn something from this book.
