About Jeff John
Jeff John is the former editor of GUNS Magazine, an Associate Editor for Petersen’s Guns & Ammo and Technical Editor for Handguns and RifleShooter magazines. He has had a lifelong interest in history, firearms, target shooting, gun making and photography. He founded Art In Arms Press to bridge the gap between magazines and hardcover books. Readers now have a less expensive avenue to explore subjects in more depth than a magazine article allows without the expense and commitment of a hardcover book.
Firearms are a tangible way to experience the past. The study of a particular firearm, how it was designed and used and can take you down many strange paths beyond putting bullets into targets. Arms also proved an introduction to different ways of thinking, of how compromises in materials are handled, and how nascent technology evolves. By going into this kind of depth, I hope to pass on to the reader a richer way to see these guns than as a behind-the-glass museum display that probably needs dusting.
