Synopsis: The legend of the West, and the guns that won the West - most especially the Colt Single Action revolver - will never die; not if George Virgines has anything to say about it. There have been, in the past, many writers who could spin intriguing tales of Western heroes and badmen. There were others who could write technically precise articles about firearms, their functioning and their history. The author of this book can not only do both, but he welds the two into fascinating tales of the men and their guns. And he preserves the legend. That is most important, I think, especially in these times of sensational journalism where we learn the "truth" about personalities - whether we want to or not.
