** The giveaway has ended, but be sure to check the Inside Gun Digest Books blog often for more chances to win great Gun Digest books.**

Gun Digest Shooter’s Guide to Handguns will hit the shelves this month, and whether you’re an experienced shooter or new to handguns, if you want to improve your performance shooting a pistol or revolver, this guide will help you do it.

Renowned revolversmith, writer, and self defense trainer Grant Cunningham gives you the facts you need to choose the right handgun for your needs, select ammunition, shoot effectively, and take care of your investment.

Here’s your chance to win Gun Digest Shooter’s Guide to Handguns before it even hits the shelves!

Just about any online gun forum will sooner or later have a heated discussion about magazines (or “mags”) and clips. Many people use the two interchangeably, referring to a pistol’s ammunition carrier as a clip. Technically this isn’t correct: a clip is an open device which holds each round of ammunition by its groove, rim, or base, while a magazine is an enclosed device in which the rounds are simply contained by spring pressure. All autoloading pistols available today use magazines, not clips.

To enter the random drawing, just post a comment below answering the following question: How long have you owned a handgun(s) – Are you a seasoned veteran, a new handgun owner, or just considering purchasing your first gun?

Or, as always, you can just say you’d like to win the giveaway.

    I’ve been shooting handguns over 50 years. I bought my first one about 48 years ago. I am licensed for concealed carry and I do carry. I would like to win the book.

    I got my first handgun, a single action revolver in .22lr, as a birthday present from my grandfather when I was 15. My first centerfire handgun, a Ruger Super Blackhawk .44mag, was a Christmas present from my wife when I was 19. I’ve never been without one, and have owned many more in the 15 years since.

    I bought my first handgun over 35 years ago. However, I was shooting handguns well before that. My Father was in the Army and my Uncle in the Navy and their Father was what used to be called a gun crank. It’s in my blood. :-)
