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!

This the 7th copy of this reference on my bookshelf. On the first reading of this type of reference I usually go to the product pages that contain items that I already own, or that I'm very familiar with or to product pages for items I plan on purchasing. In nearly every case the item's description was incomplete or the data was wrong or most often, numbers were transposed.
I am aware that there is a great deal of detailed information carried on every page but the 104th edition of the 'Shooters Bible' could have benefited from a much more careful proof reading.

This is just a list of limited information. Not easy to navigate. Could be a lot more informational. I'm disappointed.

The Kindle version of this book was a waste of money for me. The Table of Contents is not helpful and makes finding certain firearms or other items difficult. I pretty much have to scroll from page to page and noticed much of the information on firearms was outdated. Not really much of a firearms resource in my opinion.

Excellent collection of manufacturers product flyers for current products that can be found online for free. Historically this was a well researched collection of information about practically any firearm ever made. This book is a joke, and from the reviews I have seen of the other books that supposedly contain what this one couldn't, they are no different. If you are wondering how to kill a golden goose to get all those gold eggs out, just pay for this book and compare it to older editions before the current owner of the title rights got it. I seriously doubt you will do it twice. The standard resource for firearm information is not here, the name is all you will get.

I downloaded the digital version and regret it. The kindle app on my Motorola Xoom doesn't integrate the images with the text well. Sometimes ballistics tables are cut and rearranged, and the cut shows two different cartridges under one heading. Attempting to view .44 special ballistics up close, for example, shows a column of .44 magnum ballistics but cuts out the .44 magnum heading, making it look as if certain .44 special loads achieve astronomical performance. Firearm images are not always placed in the appropriate locations either. I find flipping pages on a book this large faster than trying to navigate the app. Still, the information from the book is available in the app for the cautious and patient user, at a lower price and with less bulk. The digital version is also more discreet for reading in public places (or for reading at home without revealing to the wife that you forked over the dough for yet another gun book). The publication itself is fantastic, and invaluable to any shooting enthusiast.

That is what they are still worth they are not keeping pace with the flow ya know. Used to be that this and the shooters Bible competed but now they are cookie cutter copies and not even very good ones.I can think of fifteen or twenty rifles and shotguns along with pistols that you did not even show let alone talk about. You should have had photos from almost every gun show nation wide in 2012 but I don;t even think you know if there were any OK

This is an excellent resource, but I wish that I had stayed with the traditional print format, the kindle version was too difficult to read clearly. Sometimes traditional is still the best.
