Hints on Revolver Shooting


Originally published in 1904, this rare early work on the revolver and its use, is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. We are now republishing it, using the original text and artwork, in a high quality, affordable, modern edition. The author was a well known and respected figure in the gun world of that era. He was an expert shot with all types of firearms and was Vice-President of the National Rifle Association and President of the Ashford Rifle Club. He also wrote "The Art of Revolver Shooting" and "Practical Rifle Shooting." and was a prolific contributor of shooting material to the sporting press. The book's one hundred and thirty six pages contain many black and white photographas and illustrations and eighteen detailed chapters: Selecting a Revolver and Ammunition; Cleaning and Care of Weapons; Sights; Learning to Use the Revolver; Gallery Shooting; Bisley: 20 Yards Stationary Target; Disappearing Target; Rapid Firing; Traversing Target; Team Shooting and Coaching; General Remarks on Shooting in Competitions; Stage Shooting; Trick Shooting; Target Shooting Off Horseback; Shooting in Self Defence; Revolver Shooting for Ladies; Shooting in the Dark. This is a fascinating read for any gun enthusiast or historian, with much of the information and advice still useful and practical today.
