Graze through the pages of most gun magazines out there, and you’re bound to run across an article on self-defense and concealed carry. So, too, are the pages of today’s publications populated with articles on the bazillions of semi-autos that suit the bill. What you don’t see much of are articles on revolvers.
The wheelgun, believe it or not, has a very strong following. Sure, the number of new semi-autos introduced each year eclipses new revolver models, but some of that has to do with the fact that, with revolvers, there’s not much need to, well, reinvent the wheel. But that doesn’t mean they need to be ignored.
If you’re toying with the idea of adding revolvers to your lineup, whether for target fun, a concealed carry backup, or even your main sidearm, then author Grant Cunningham’s Gun Digest Book of the Revolver should be a must-read before you open your wallet.

One of today’s most popular handgun writers, Cunningham has revolvers, in a word, “down.” With pertinent advice on revolver size, caliber, and fitting choices, there’s also priceless information on sighting systems, speed and single-hand reloading, and mastering the double-action trigger pull.
Accented with chapters on customization and a special section devoted to snub-nose revolvers, Cunningham covers ample ground, enough to satisfy the mildly curious on up to the practiced six-shooter. Truly, an invaluable resource for five-, six-, eight-, and 10-shot revolver lovers everywhere.
