“For almost 10 decades the Shooter’s Bible has been the favorite reference guide of millions of Americans seeking definitive information on the latest products, specifications, and up-to-date prices for thousands of firearms and related items.” (Amsterdam Recorder (Amsterdam, NY))

Format: Paperback
I agree with the other reviews that the 103rd edition is the best yet. Particularly like the color images of new guns at the front. I enjoy grazing new gun models to see what is out there.

Big find -- a stainless Browning BPS AW HiCap on page 55. I just finished shooting, then sold, both a Remington 870 Marine Magnum and a Mossberg Mariner. Now I'm interested in Browning's treatment of the stainless pump. Didn't know it existed until I found it thumbing thru Shooter's Bible.

Also got interested in a Rem 1100 Competition Synthetic on p59, Nosler's bolt guns (yes, the ammo maker has moved into firearms) on p38, Remington's 700 SPS Tactical with AAC-SD suppressor on p39, Rossi's stainless 92 lever action on p42, and the Browning 1911-22 on p67 (got one, but haven't shot it yet).

I guess that's the one problem with the Bible: I see too much stuff I want.

There is a reason why Shooter's Bible has been around for 103 years and it shows in the most recent edition. The photographs provide the necessary eye candy every shooter wants with all the technical specifications a gun nut needs.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Wyoming Hunter on October 7, 2011
Format: Paperback
The "Shooter's Bible" has been a mainstay for hunters and shooters since 1925 with early editions having become very collectible, and under editor Jay Cassell the 103rd edition's even better. The heart of the book is all of those really cool firearms (in full color in the "New Products" section); but the bonus features, like Wayne van Zwoll's fact- and experience-filled chapters on accurate shooting, also add to the work.

About 30 years ago, The Shooter's Bible filled an important niche for hunters and firearms hobbyists. Today, with internet sites and dozens of specialized titles available at the newstand, the Bible provides only a superficial overview of the industry. Each category included, from firearm listings to ballistic information is extemely limited. The Bible is an advertising platform portrayed as a reference book. The authors provide little independent testing or review of the products displayed. This has always been typical of the Shooter's Bible... For pictures and detailed reviews about weapons, accessories or ballistics, save your money and get busy online. All of the information is available, free of charge.

Have not had a copy of the old Shooters Bible for at least 40 years. Todays version is a very poor example of what it use to be.

Good service! This book has helped me choose the right handgun for me. I will be using it to look for a rifle in the future. Great reference book.
