Robert Campbell, a former peace officer with over twenty years on the job, shares his wealth of experience in this heavily illustrated guide to handguns. With pistol in hand, Campbell introduces you to the world of handguns, from choosing your first handgun to understanding the basics of firearms safety, marksmanship, competitive shooting, hunting, and personal protection.

Campbell covers accessories such as holsters and magazines and demystifies the sometimes confusing array of ammunition available in every caliber, including an introduction to handloading. Informal and fun to read—but full of information from decades of handgun experience—The Complete Illustrated Manual of Handgun Skills is required reading for any handgun owner.
