Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Collector Bookstore Quick Notes: A highly readable account of handgun history from the 14th century till now. Profusely illustrated in color. Covers vintage, curious, disguised, combo pistols, miniatures, toys, handguns and the law, much more. Publishers Full Description: Films and television programs have made the public much more familiar with the handgun as it features in many dramas and thrillers, but unfortunately this exposure has led to many misconceptions about the uses and capabilities of such weapons. This book offers a more measured and realistic assessment of its virtues and faults. Tracing the history of the handgun from its appearance in the 14th century as a slow, clumsy inaccurate weapon up to the present day, when it can discharge twenty or more shots a second with great accuracy and power, Frederick Wilkinson studies the handgun's technical development, how it was used, the emergence of collectors, and explores associated topics such as holsters and ammunition. He looks at how the authorities have struggled to find a balance between those who wish to own a handgun and use it for sport and those who see any gun as a dangerous threat to the public that should be outlawed.
