Meet the Author

A. E. Hartink grew up with firearms; both his father and his grandfather were in the Royal Dutch Navy. In his youth, he graduated from his first Diana air rifle to a small bore carbine, and then to large caliber handguns. During his military service, he was a sergeant weapons instructor. He later joined the Dutch state police, where he soon became a detective, extending his already vast knowledge of firearms. Following the reorganization of Dutch police forces in 1994, Hartink became a specialist firearms detective with a regional police force, and since 1995 he has worked for a regional firearms department, where his main activities are related to the control of legal and prevention of illegal firearms. In addition to being a regular contributor to various publications, he has written extensively on weapons of every kind under a variety of pen names (as well as his own), and has translated books about weapons, ammunition, and the reloading of cartridges.

A complete and comprehensive guide for anyone interested in guns. The pictures are great and I really enjoyed whenever they showed a detailed breakdown of the pistol or revolver. Is well worth what I paid for it.

I purchased a book for my husband and one for my neighbor who is just beginning a gun collection. they were both amazed that such a detailed informative book existed. It helped them choose their next purchases while gaining a better understanding of the guns they currently own.

Exceptional and accurate up-to-date information. Superb illustrations. A real definitive encyclopedia, not someone's personal comments about a specific handgun. Not limited to handguns available on the american market. Can replace a lot of other books written on the same subject.
