Foreword by Jeff Cooper
Manufacturer part number: 1-58160-432-7
Penned in 1875 and recently discovered collecting dust on a library bookshelf, this primer for the pistol is remarkably timely in its insights and observations. From a historical perspective, it contains striking parallels to the thinking and controversy that swirl about the practical use of the pistol today. Open it to any given page and you will discover thoroughly modern, straight-shooting advice on pistol safety, effective shot placement, stopping power, practical shooting, the importance of cover, the fallacy of shooting to wound, the practicality and morality of pistol carry and much more. Jeff Cooper, the foremost authority on pistolcraft in America today, considers the book’s content from a contemporary viewpoint in an exclusive foreword for this reprint edition. This lost treasure is a classic piece of firearm literature that is worthy of a place on every modern pistol aficionado’s bookshelf. 48 pp.
