    This review is from: The 100 Greatest Combat Pistols: Hand-On Tests and Evaluations of Handguns from Around the World (Paperback)
    When I first picked up my copy of “100 greatest pistols”,I was amazed at the amount of information it contained. Now, after a few years, I still go to it for reference and fun.
    In “100 geatest pistols”,Mr.Mullin takes just about any handgun you can name.He subjects them to different situations,and test fires them without mercy.The conclusions he arrives at gives the reader historical insights and technical discoveries that go far beyond what the typical “gun book” offers.
    Mr.Mullin has a clear and concise style of writing that is very entertaining while also providing rare and useful information to the reader. There is no “filler” about the latest raceguns.But rather, no nonsense advice on different handguns one can expect to find all over the world. Whats more, he even gives directions on how to deal with ammo problems,testing older firearms and, tactical considerations rather than popular opinion about the suitability of various weapons.
    Just an excellent book that will have the reader wondering why they hadn’t gotten their hands on it sooner.
    If you can find BUY IT !

    This review is from: The 100 Greatest Combat Pistols: Hand-On Tests and Evaluations of Handguns from Around the World (Paperback)
    A brand new book. As soon as I started to read pages started falling out. It is just put together badly. 409 pages and 64 are completely blank. The title is misleading. Many are ineffective .30 and .32 caliber guns. Substitute the word “military” for “greatest.” The black and white pictures vary from poor to totally obscured.

    The stated justification of the book is for a soldier to know about these firearms if he is unarmed and happens upon one to use. Some seem unlikely: the Webley-Fosbery, the 1898 Rast and Gasser, the Baby Nambu, etc.

    The book is repetitious. He repeatedly complains of the ineffective caliber and the small sights needing to be painted white. He tells us over and over again for the reason for the small calibers: i.e., the introduction of smokeless powder caused a reduction in rifle calibers so handgun calibers were equally reduced to .30.

    In several instances he substitutes an inferior clone for the one he is describing. Examples: the Chinese copy of the Russian TT-33 and the Egyptian copy of the Beretta 1951. Included in every case is a picture of him “firing” the gun, sometimes directly at the camera. The gun is usually obscured.

    He believes the Austrian Roth-Steyr 1907 and the CZ 38 are good guns. At the end he ranks the best guns. Number one is his own customized S&W
    .357 Magnum with the barrel and grip shortened. How likely is someone going to stumble over that? Also, he was amazed to find the Mauser 1896 is a great gun!

    He uses three unusual terms which he does not explain: indexing, cinema range, and triangulation. From his usage, one deduces that he does not mean what Hatcher means by triangulation.

    This could have been a great book, but instead was a disappointment.
