Fighting Handguns: History, Adventure, and Romance of Handguns from the Muzzle Loader to Modern Magnums

From the 1540s on, the handgun has been recognized as a handy weapon for individual fighters. Compared to other weapons such as the ax, sword, rifle and shotgun, it is light and compact, allowing it to be carried almost anywhere and deployed quickly when needed. For these reasons, throughout the centuries the handgun has endured as the best defensive weapon for most people, most of the time.

In Fighting Handguns, Jeff Cooper not only takes the reader through the development of this weapon from its beginnings in mid-16th-century Europe through the various iterations of single- and double-action revolvers and semiautomatic pistols, he also discusses some important aspects of carrying and shooting a fighting handgun under combat conditions.

    This review is from: Fighting Handguns: History, Adventure, and Romance of Handguns from the Muzzle Loader to Modern Magnums (Paperback)

    A greatly expanded version of “Guns of the Old West”. Most of the other book is included, however, this book goes into much greater detail and includes expanded chapters on; double action revolvers, semi-automatic pistols and combat shooting techniques. Cooper is quite the romantic when it comes to this topic and has a knack for stating the obvious in a very amusing way. He is a hard core fan of large bore handguns and is dismissive of just about anything smaller than 45 ACP or 44 Special.

    This is a reprint of a 50+ year old book. It’s amazing how much has changed in firearm design, holsters, training techniques, etc…since it was originally written. Well worth reading, especially for those who follow the teachings of Jeff Cooper.

    This is a well written book Although the author recently died and the book was written fouty years ago his history, perspective and insights are still true today as they were in 1958. A must read for anyone interested in handguns, their history and practical advice.

    This will be a gift my husband requested for Christmas. He’s a gunsmith, mainly restoring old firearms. He’s read about this book and if he asked for it, it must be good!
