Editorial Reviews

Review

I have been told it is the most-saved outdoor publication of all time. You just don’t throw away a Shooter’s Bible. (The Leader Times [Pittsburgh, PA] )

Of all the things I enjoy about the Shooter’s Bible is the very complete list and photos of firearms and manufacturers. Add to this sections on ballistics and you have a great book for the hunter. (The Laurens Sun [Laurens, IA] )

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 fire-arms and related items. (The Amsterdam Recorder [Amsterdam, NY] )

Format: Paperback
There's good news for all shooting fans and gun owners from Skyhorse Publishing: "Shooter's Bible: 101st Edition" is back with all the old familiar features -- plus many new ones.

The 608-page large format paperback book retails for $29.95, a bargain price, considering how much information about rifles, shotguns, revolvers, autoloaders, black powder rifles and pistols, scopes, ammunition and all the paraphernalia associated with shooting is included.

The new edition, edited by Jay Cassell, includes a history of the publication, which got its start as a mail order catalog in 1923 for the Stoeger Arms Corp. of New York City. Stoeger Arms was acquired in 2000 by the Benelli Corp., which shut down Stoeger Publishing last year after only a limited number of copies of the 100th edition were produced, making it almost unavailable to shooters. Skyhorse has also acquired to rights to other Stoeger titles. Since it began publishing in its familiar form, an average of 100,000 copies of the book have sold every year, for a total of about 7 million. The Skyhorse Publishing 101st edition makes this an ideal holiday present for any shooter and/or gun collector.

Curious as to what a 100th edition would sell for, I checked Amazon.com and found three new copies listed, from $134.50 and three used ones from the same price point!

"Shooter's Bible" is simply the most complete reference guide for new products, specifications, and up-to-date prices on thousands of firearms and related equipment. This edition of "Shooter's Bible" contains a series of informative feature articles by nationally recognized firearms experts writing on subjects ranging from hunting and shooting to firearms technology and history.

Format: Paperback
This year's SHOOTER'S BIBLE offers a new edition covering all the new guns, ammo and optics and has been picked up by a new publisher after its long-time publisher Stoeger Publishing closed its doors. It offers the 2008-09 edition's New Products section, an article on "The 50 Best Guns Ever Made" and more in an outstanding 'bible' for any sports or hunter's collection.

WOW! This is one heck of a book. I'm not a gun person. I don't like them and I don't own one. I bought this book for my brother. Made the mistake of glancing through it. This book has so much information. I kept it a couple days before I gave to my brother.

The book arrived when on the day I was told it would arrive. It was packed well and arrived in perfect shape.

I'm happy with my order.

this is an excellent addition to any firearm aficionado from the enthusiast to the professional. It has page after page of essential details on a variety of weapons, and even includes a section for guns recently introduced, as of it's calendar year. The only draw back, if memory serves, is that it sometimes lumps weapon variants together, giving generic specs and failing to specify what detailed information goes with which variant.

A very good source of info on new products, features and approximate retail price. I always enjoy the articles as well. If you are researching a new purchase or just want to see what's new this is a very good resource. As usual I was very happy with Amazon's service and price.
