    Free Combat Revolver manual

    It's been a while since I posted on Bullshido though I have lurked through once in a while. Those of you who remember me from way back may recall that one of my hobbies is republishing antique martial arts manuals and making the PDF available for free.

    I have completed the republishing the rare WWI combat revolver manual "The Service Revolver and How to Use It" by Captain Charles D. Tracy.

    Tracy explodes some myths about skills and knowledge that we now have concerning early combat handgunning. His text includes instruction on aimed fire, "snap shooting," shooting in the dark, dry fire practice, active drills, reactive targets, safety, cover vs. concealment, semi-auto vs. revolver, eye dominance and two-eye shooting, and even the classic "caliber wars!"

    Every time I see these sort of things, I think, "dude was way ahead of this time," but the truth may be more accurately that our forebearers were not even "cutting edge" for the time, we just forgot how much they knew and busy ourselves by congratulating our own awesomeness.

    The PDF is, of course, available for free from my Lulu site. A print edition available as well, though I can't make Lulu send you one of those for free, it's still pretty cheap. And will try to get a ePub version ready for those of you who prefer eReaders.

    Special thanks to Lawrence Skuse for making the text available to me for this project.

    Here is the free download:

    I have a favor to ask.

    If you downloaded this book and like it, I'd sure appreciate a 5 star review. This helps others interested in the topic to find, and decide to download, this book. If you bought the tree-ware, I'd ask the same. Please give it a review. For that matter, if you downloaded any other of the free content from my Lulu site, please give it a 5-Star review. I'd really appreciate it! :)

    Here's the link to review The Service Revolver and How to Use It:
