I will save you a bit of reading, in case you are in a hurry, and just tell you now to buy this book. If you want to know more before spending $33.00 on improving your shooting, collecting and other gun skills, read on.
This book was written by Boston T. Party, the well known (to Libertarians) author of such titles as You and the Police, Surviving Y2K And Other Disasters, Hologram Of Liberty and a handful of other noteworthy titles. If you want yet another glossy photo gun book, extolling all of the imaginary virtues of every firearm ever made, this is NOT the book for you. If you are after a no holds barred consumer guide to firearms, accessories, and shooting, GET IT.
Boston's Gun Bible goes into great detail about the pros and cons of various defensive weaponry, equipment, and the philosohy behind their appropriate usage. The work is markedly political, obviously pro gun, and has a rather witty ''screw the hoplophobes'' tone that I really enjoyed. The writing is crisp and to the point. Eloquent without being boring. This is a hallmark of Boston's work, and you will not be diappointed in Boston's Gun Bible. At about (850) pages, it can't be considered light reading, but the subject matter is important and needs a lot of covering to get it all through to the reader in its entirety.
Included in the book is information on:
* Selecting rifles, pistols, revolvers
* Gun shows
* ATF Sting operations
* Gun nomenclature
* Sighting in
* Optics and other sights
* Women and guns
* Politics and guns
* How to cache weapons and ammo
* (And everything else you want to know, or so it seems)
I thought that the project would be rather daunting when he undertook it, but the results are well worth the money. What he ended up with is a layman's guide/how to book for buying, selling, choosing, caring for, KEEPING, shooting and enjoying firearms of all types, but especially those that are ''Liberty's Teeth''. Especially valuable is the section detailing the merits and faults of various modern semi auto rifle systems. What you will NOT find in this book is ANY hint of advertising $$$ influence, chicanery, or editorial falderal.
Boston knows his subject, and covers it exhaustively.
Did I mention that you should buy it? --Kevin (Mad Dog) McClung, knifemaker and gunsmith
