The Elusive Ten. Reichenbach.
This is a facsimile of the book “The Elusive Ten” by William Reichenbach, originally published in 1935.
This book is intended to be a primer for those seeking to learn how to shoot a revolver accurately, and more specifically, those looking to compete in the sport of bullseye pistol shooting. Reichenbach wrote this manual to cover the techniques of holding, aiming, and firing a revolver, he was not concerned with internal or external ballistics of revolver cartridges.
The book is divided into two parts, with the first part covering the rudiments of revolver shooting. The second part elaborates on the techniques found in Part I and expands upon them for more experienced shooters.
Reichenbach’s presents his information in a straight forward and easy to understand manner. While this book was intended for tyros of the bullseye shooting game, today it is valuable information for anyone who wants to shoot more accurately. The information concerning, grip, stance, and breathing will be of great assistance to new and experienced shooters of both revolvers and automatic handguns.
