The Snubby Revolver: The ECQ, Backup, and Concealed Carry Standard

In this book, former CIA operative and Combat Handguns columnist Ed Lovette pays homage to the short-barreled revolver, or snubby, holding it up as the timeless standard in concealed carry, backup and extreme close quarters (ECQ) defensive weapons. He addresses the four most common complaints about the snubby – grip, front sight, trigger and ammo capacity – and presents viable ways to remedy those issues based on his personal experience. Lovette devotes the second half of the book to defensive tactics, running the gamut from basic personal defense to strategic planning for extraordinary situations such as surveillance and carjackings to considerations specific to the use of the pocket revolver. This book is a must for anyone seeking objective, practical insight into the snub-nose revolver’s enduring value.

    This review is from: The Snubby Revolver: The ECQ, Backup, and Concealed Carry Standard (Paperback)
    “Some things endure because they do what they do better than anything that can be designed to replace them. And so it is with the short-barreled revolver.” So says Ed Lovette on page 15 of THE SNUBBY REVOLVER, and I think he’s exactly right.

    For most civilian purposes, revolvers, though they may not be as sexy or cool as tricked-out autoloaders, are superior in practical terms. And for concealed carry, it’s very hard to beat a good snubby — it’s simple to use and very reliable; when concealed, its rounded, irregular outline generally doesn’t ‘print’ through clothing as much as an auto; and, to me one of the best advantages over an automatic is that you can leave a revolver fully loaded indefinitely and not worry about any spring fatigue (which can be a problem with autopistol magazines, no matter how high their quality, if you leave em loaded long enough.) For all those reasons, I’m a snubby sixgun fan and was delighted to find a book devoted to them. I found a lot of good information and pointers here (I really liked the stuff on knives as supplements to the snubby), and overall the book was an enjoyable, fast read. The author seems to know his stuff, with a background that includes Special Forces, law enforcement, and the CIA.

    All that said, I’ll agree with some of the criticisms of this book: while the parts focused on snubbies were good, there was a lot of space devoted to ‘defensive mindset’ matters, which, while certainly important, I thought would’ve been more appropriate in another book. (Ed Lovette even tells you that he co-authored a book on that very subject; why he doesn’t just refer you to that, rather than reprinting chunks of it in this book, is beyond me.) And I’ll agree that sometimes there are too many short anecdotes, some of which are kind of served up a la carte without a lot of analysis and explanation of their point.

    But I still think this is a worthwhile book for anyone who carries a concealed weapon or is considering doing so. And I for one appreciated the fact that the author did NOT fill up the book with a bunch of ballistics charts and tables and tiresome lists of makes, models, and specs, as so many ‘gunwriters’ seem to love doing. I’ll take practical real-world advice from an experienced person over the theories of armchair ballistics theorists any day.

    This review is from: The Snubby Revolver: The ECQ, Backup, and Concealed Carry Standard (Paperback)
    I was very disappointed with this book. It seems to be primarily an argument of why one should choose the short barreled revolver as a defensive arm( and not a very compelling one at that), but my guess is that most folks contemplating the purchase of this book already own one or more short-barreled revolvers.

    I have owned and trained with snubbies for years, and was looking for insights on how to use them more effectively. This book failed to deliver much that was very useful to me. The one useful thing I learned was that Crimson Trace offers blue guns with their Lasergrips already installed.

    I really don’t think this book would be of much use to a novice, either.

    The author gave some IMO very bad advice about choosing ammo types; he advocates Magsafe which offers insufficient penetration for effective use against human predators in all but a few limited circumstances.

    The book spends a fair amount of time discussing terrorism; this seemed to be a waste of time and ink to me.

    The author also repeatedly mentioned favorably other books published by the company that published this book, Paladin. I didn’t buy this book to get a commercial for Paladin’s other products.
