Book Review - Big Bore Handguns

Title: Big Bore Handguns
Author: John Taffin
ISBN: 0873494636

Mr. Taffin starts with a well presented history of the large bore handgun from the beginning of the repeating era. He then continues to address nearly every large caliber handgun including semi-autos and single-shots. THEN he has info on leather, hand loading, and some interesting anecdotes. All of this is written in Mr. Taffin's uniquely direct, informative but interesting style. Profusely illustrated with many excellent black and white photos, the only improvement would be that the photos were in color. A marvelous reading experience for the firearms enthusiast. "Big Bore Handguns" is one of those books any newcomer to the sport must have. Not quite as broad in subject matter as Keith's "Sixguns", "Big Bore Handguns" deserves a place on the bookshelf next to Keith's classic.
