There are no born shots. However, with patience an officer may become a good revolver shot by following the methods of instruction herein given, providing he masters each chapter thoroughly and practices the methods as suggested in dry shooting. Every effort has been made to present the instruction by the shortest method. This system of ready reference to chapters makes this Manual a valuable assistant to the officer on the range or in the classroom.
