    A Decent Book

    24 Chapters of information but no list of them up front to tell you what page they are on to help you get to the right chapter you need right away. Lots of photos but none in color. Has whole chapters on the Glock, Springfield XD, S&W Revolvers and the 1911.

    Could benefit greatly from an Index at the back to help get readers to the page where they want to go for reference. Perhaps a glossry in future editions.

    Otherwise a decent book with good information but room for much improvement.
