Congrats to Aurélien

I want to congratulate long-time reader and contributor Aurélien on the publication of his first “major work”, a special edition of the French magazine RAIDS. The edition is entitled “le pistolet au combat” (the handgun in battle). It covers the evolution of the combat handgun, and has articles about the M1911, the GP35/BHP, the 92, the P22X, GLOCKs and Makarov pistols.

For those of you who can read French, the magazine can be purchased here and, I am told, shipped worldwide.
