When Handguns Afield was first published in 1961, hunting with a handgun was in its infancy. Surely settlers and cowboys of the 19th century would have used a handgun on wild game from time to time to fill the campfire stewpot, but as far as using a handgun for hunting as a pastime, this sport was not yet widely recognized. Jeff Cooper expertly summarizes the various aspects of hunting with handguns in the few dozen pages of this volume. Handguns, cartridges, holsters and shooting small and large game are all thoroughly described and explained here. If the average handgun shooter follows the advice in this book - most of which is still relevant today - he will be well prepared to hunt game with a pistol.
