Gun ownership is a Second Amendment right in the United States of America. The choices and challenges for handgun shooting vary widely from practice at a shooting range with bulls eye targets, plinking at breakables, such as clay pigeons, to personal and home defense, to hunting small and big game, formal competitive events on state, regional and national levels, and the Olympic Games. Handbook for Handguns provides insights and instructions about revolvers and pistols that will be of equally great interest for someone who is basically curious about handguns, as well as beginning and more experienced shooters. Bruckerhoff’s thorough discussion begins with the rights and liberties established by the Founding Fathers, notably in the United States Constitution and Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights, and includes an overview of federal and state laws pertaining to firearms, history of firearms development, gun safety rules, modern revolvers and pistols, ammunition, ballistics, live fire exercises, and safe storage of firearms. The book has color photographs throughout that make details of handguns clear and useful. The beginner and specialist alike will find Handbook for Handguns an informative read and an essential resource in their library.
