Pistols And Revolvers And Their Use,

2012 Reprint of 1927 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Julian Hatcher was a noted firearms expert and author of the early twentieth century. He is credited with several technical books and articles relating to military firearms, ballistics, and auto loading weapons. His premier works are "Hatcher's Notebook" and "Book of the Garand," along with "Pistols and Revolvers and Their Uses" and "Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers." In the latter work he introduced the Hatcher Scale, probably the first attempt to determine the stopping power of a handgun round by a formula. He was also a pioneer in the forensic identification of firearms and their ammunition. Hatcher retired from the United States Army as a Major General. Afterward, he served as Technical Editor of the National Rifle Association's "American Rifleman" magazine. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This book was published in 1927. It would be a very important book if it had not been followed by his second book, "The Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers", in 1935. The second book is an expansion of the first.Almost everything in the first book is in the second. Sometimes it seems almost word for word, page for page is repeated verbatim. And there is a great deal of additional material. It is also a better written book. His writing ability matured considerably.Buy "The Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers". It is easier to find, usually costs less, and has a lot more information.
