    Yet, what I really like about the book, is in regards to it's historical worth. Hunter takes significant poetic license with the characters, but, having read these guys sparing back in the 60s and 70s in the magazines, it could have been pretty accurate. Conversations above about the "old" shooters and gun writers brings the Stephen Hunter book, Pale Horse Coming, to mind. The long range shooting information is good and I enjoy reading about the shooting with both iron sights and scopes.

    It's great. He said Fast and Fancy book onto a revolver shooting that fast was like bearing down on the handle of a horse-drawn plow. McGivern did a good job of relating how he did things so others could understand his and others feats were not all talk and so others could do it too, he was a good teacher. A world champion marksmen who made The Guinness Book of World Records, he trained scores of law enforcement officers and developed a system of teaching that is as effective today as it was when this book was originally published. The sixgun was worn just as regularly as my pants and many times was much more important to my existence. Several times it was touch-and-go and perhaps only the current knowledge that I was both fast and accurate with a sixgun saved me from being embroiled.

    Even in the first editions the pictures are not that sharp or in focus. We publish books about shotguns, rifles, handguns, target shooting, gun collecting, self-defense, archery, ammunition, knives, gunsmithing, gun repair, and wilderness survival. Fast and Fancy book preferred type of iron sight for this use was a small-diameter rear aperture and a post with a gold bead for the front. Sounds like a book ill need to get unclenick AM I can't move my finger that fast either. It is set in the early 's and the hero sets out to rescue his long time friend from a forced labor prison camp somewhere in the deep south.

Quick Draw and Hip Shooting X. Selecting the Handgun III. That stuff is terrific and hilarious. And yes much of what is in the book is basic,but all shooters can stand to review the basics.

It's great. I like the section on bulletproof glass and wonder in the policeman actually stood behind the glass when McGivern fired the shot. Ed McGivern did not have a college degree in English so he tends to have a wandering style of composition. I rather doubt Mr.

Anyway, I thought it was a great book.

Try not to judge him by 21st Century standards. I have also trailed up Fast and Fancy book great many big game animals of various species that were wounded by sportsmen and then I finished them off.

Selection of Cartridges XIX. It resulted from years of experimentation and research conducted by McGivern, who utilized electric timers and other devices to determine the angles and techniques that would produce the fastest, most accurate revolver shooting.

Several things are interesting, the fact that McGivern did his best shooting with unmodified guns, he did his best shooting with what amounts to full power loads and he was willing to allow anyone to watch the loading of the ammunition and the setup of the targets and then the shooting.

Hunter takes significant poetic license with the characters, but, having read these guys sparing back in the 60s and 70s in the magazines, it could have been pretty accurate. The pictures are not the quality we Fast and Fancy book today but they are good and interesting.

There are also photos that are a real kick. Yes shooters now use some techniques that McGivern wouldn't have though of back in the 's the Weaver stance and the Isocoles Stance for example.

It is an indispensable reference book that will help you develop your pistolero skills. Packed with handgun lore and original photographs from the first edition, this much-sought-after classic contains a wealth of facts for marksmen everywhere.

Thirty years I spent in the saddle, packing, punching cows and breaking saddle brones. McGivern and shooters of the day did not feel the need to shoot full magnum loads every day - it was not a matter of recoil but of fitting the cartridge to the need.

While Keith was primarily interested in hunting, McGivern was more interested in police use of the revolver. I recall reading that someone broke his two-revolver record at one point in the last couple of decades, but that five shot speed record stands, AFAIK.

Several times it was touch-and-go and perhaps only the current knowledge that I was both fast and accurate with a sixgun saved me from being embroiled. McGivern was built a special timing apparatus by GE, IIRC, and he carted it around the country, running it at every demonstration until he got his best times.
