Yet here it is, the first pistol book ever to tell the true story of the potential maximum deadliness of the revolver in combat and in sport. The author is the well-known Bob Nichols, for forty years a keen pistolman and the country's outstanding analyst and commentator on guns and shooting. Few have guessed up to this moment that the pistol has ever been this shooting authority's favorite firearm by a wide margin. The Secrets of Double Action Shooting is the pistol book of all modern pistol books. Those who have previewed the manuscript and are competent to judge say this may easily be the pistol book of the century. The double action revolver at its cunning best is actually deadlier, far deadlier, than the automatic, and in The Secrets of Double Action Shooting Bob Nichols has produced the facts which prove this to be true! As the author makes clear, The Secrets of Double Action Shooting is a book for men-folk, not for boys. The book is addressed primarily to law-enforcement officers and to the military, to the men who must carry the loaded pistol as everyday life insurance.
