    Great book

    This book gives a good history of the development, and history of the top handguns made in the last one hundred years or so. Well researched. Massad Ayoob is one of the most knowledgable gun writers today. I have been following his writings for years in gun magazines and books. I recommend for avid handgun enthusiasts.
