Written by Grant Cunningham, a nationally recognized self defense author, you won’t find a more comprehensive guide to using the snubby for the job it was designed: self defense! No matter what the brand or caliber of your snubnose revolver, Protect Yourself With Your Snubnose Revolver will help you learn how to use it efficiently and effectively.
This is a thoughtful, easy-to-digest book that covers a surprisingly wide range of elements for its length. Especially useful for a novice snub-nose carrier (as well as the novice shooter), it addresses important topics including carry methods, modifications, storage, home defense, and includes an array of very useful range (and non-range) exercises. Cunningham does a good job of providing the reasons for his suggestions and perspective -- whether you agree or not is up to you, but at least he explains WHY he thinks as he does. Highly recommended for any small-revolver owner/user.
