Starting from the very beginning, The Practical Guide to Reloading Ammunition will help readers understand the gear they need - and what can wait. Chapter by chapter, the book explains the entire process from brass cleaning to final inspection. Loaded with pictures and illustrations, the process is made simple and clear. With this book, readers will be reloading their own cost-effective ammunition quickly and safely.
The Practical Guide to Reloading ammunition focuses on the “how-to” aspects of reloading. Author Tom McHale explains.
“Think of reloading manuals as sheet music. And this book as Mrs. Clutterbuck’s piano lessons. If one develops a sudden urge to play Carnegie Hall, or even Bodean’s Wet Whistle Bar and Bait Shop, they could just order sheet music from the Internet. But it probably wouldn’t be the most direct path to ivory key success. Take some lessons first, then order the sheet music.”
Although the author believes reading this book will be a far more pleasant experience than weekly lessons in Mrs. Clutterbuck’s den, the idea is the same. The guide will teach aspiring reloaders how to get started.

The Practical Guide to the United States Constitution offers an accurate but entertaining look at the founding documents. It covers the how's, what's, and why's of the United States Constitution, but with a side of fun.
The mission is simple: to make the Constitution so easy to understand that even a career politician can grasp it.
This Practical Guide covers the underlying concepts of natural rights and consent-based government. Hint: it's not to subpoena and investigate each other. The book also clarifies how each of the three primary founding documents, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, work together to define the goals, theory, and mechanics of the American system.The heart of this constitutional owners’ manual is a simplified walk through the contents and meaning of the founding documents. If you’ve ever wanted to know what the Constitution really says, this book is for you.
Just finished reading The Practical Guide to The United States Constitution, I wish I could have read this 40 years ago, better yet in government class in high school, 1966. I retired 6 years ago and finally had the time to get educated in the political process and history of this great country. I had to move my library book down to place this one in the top 3 "BEST". This book needs to be in every high school government class as "required" reading to graduate. It's fantastic, factual, easy to read, well organized and spellbinding.
Any time a person can read, have fun and learn something new it's a good deal! Buy this book now!
Tom McHale has managed to keep me reading, in short sessions, for the past week until I finished his delightful, lighthearted explanation of the founding documents of our republic. No heavy tome for law school students, 'The Practical Guide to the United States Constitution' is an engaging, fun read... in a civics primer, no less! Well done, Mr. McHale.
I enjoyed this guide of the Constitution. It was easy to read, witty, and gave everyday explanations. While interpretation may be one thing... the actual words are quite simple. Tom did a nice job... I highly recommend this book for for first time diving into the Constitution.

This book will help you make the right choice - saving you time and money - while offering a dose of humor while you learn.
Why do you need a book to choose and buy a holster? A few reasons really.
- At last count, there are 4,187,237 different holsters on the market. Well, that might be an estimate, but there are a lot. If you had a dollar for each of those holsters, you could almost cover the Kardashians’ weekly clothing budget. So how do you choose the right holster with all those choices?
- Hardly any stores carry a wide selection of holsters. Sure they might carry a couple of brands, but will they have a brand right for you and the model specific to your gun? It’s kind of like trying to find just the right shade of Morning Tropical Ocean Breeze Sunrise interior house paint at your local convenience store. It’s just not likely to happen. And that leaves you the option of having to search and buy from… the internet. And we all know that you can’t always believe everything you read on the internet. Well, except Youtube comments. Those are almost always true and insightful.
- You can’t really try holsters out before you buy. Especially those underwear holsters. Gun store sales staff tend to get a little cranky when you start shedding clothes next to the ammunition aisle.
- There are many different styles of concealed carry. Every day, innovative gun folks are inventing new ways to safely and discreetly carry guns. The variety of options is great, but how do you know which style of carry is right for you?
The editors at MyGunCulture.com have painstakingly documented all the holsters we’ve tried over the years and provided helpful commentary about pros and cons of different holster styles. In other words, we’ve tried just about everything. We’ve had great successes. We’ve experienced colossal failures. We’ve listened to so many gun show huckster sales pitches that the late Billy Mays would be impressed. And the result? The Practical Guide to Gun Holsters for Concealed Carry.
- A brief and entertaining history of holsters.
- Weighing concealment versus accessibility
