    The new version is about to be released. You can pre-order it at the link below. Taffin was disappointed with the original .44 book being done as a paperback with few color photos. This new printing is supposed to have new material, color photos and a hard cover.

    Thanks! An awesome book on a great caliber. I’ve read his experiences with .44 Mag & Spl several times, great writer!

    Taffin has cost me a lot of money over the years!

    Yup. He helped educate me in selecting some good revolvers over the years also

    I have his book on the .45 and it is a hardback with many color photos. Excellent book. I make sure it is in my car when I visit my favorite gunshop since Mr. Taffin frequents the same shop and I would like it autographed.

    Taffin used to take orders through his own site, and he would personally autograph them. I don't think he's doing this anymore though.

    I bought three of his books that way, and all are autographed. It would be great if he still did this.

    Great to know. Several years ago I searched for this book only to find it out of print and very expensive on the second hand market. Much more than the $60 here.

    I think the only one I got autographed was the CAS book, ordered directly from him. I had Munden sign my copy of Big Bore Sixguns, like it was a high school yearbook. :p

    I have the older copy of John Taffin's paperback "Book of the .44" from Gundigest . However if the new edition is twice as thick ,hard cover and in color then count me in.

    I can see that this is not going to be a one and done expense. Wonder how many more 44's and stuff I'll end up with?
