Maintaining the Legacy
on September 21, 2012
While it's true that much of the information contained in the Shooter's Bible can be found on the Internet, there are many of us, including me, who would first rather relax in our easy chair and page through the book at our leisure. If you find an item that catches your fancy, you can then follow up by going to their Web site. Also, it is much more convenient to browse the pages of the Shooter's Bible than browse the Internet if you are just looking to see what is currently available in Firearms and related items.
The first Shooter's Bible I bought was Number 42, the 1951 Edition. Back then it was published by Stoeger's. The number of domestic firearms manufacturers listed in the 42nd Edition numbered 12. And thankfully, with the exception of Noble and Iver Johnson, all of the others remain alive and well today. In the 104th Edition, the number has increased to more than 37!
This latest edition is proof that, even with all the attacks on our 2nd Amendment right over the years, the industry has persevered and grown. I hope the day never comes when there will no longer be a reason to publish the Shooter's Bible.
The 104th Edition, along with its New Products section in color, continues the fine tradition of providing a reference for the current crop of firearms and related products - and carries on the legacy of the Shooter's Bible!
