Over the years that I have been allowed to be on this 3rd Rock from the Sun. I have found a few books about Firearms that are actually useful.
(Yeah I know there a lot of so called “Experts” out there that are in urgent need of a bowel movement. These books do not fit in that category)
If you can find them.
The Boy Scouts Rifle & Shotgun Shooting 1967 Merit Badge Series
(This pamphlet has a lot of good solid Info. You can possibly find one on E BAY)
The Boy Scouts also have a good pdf out there that is worth looking at.
Here is the address to look at it
There is also this
The M-1 does My Talking By Robert Bruce
It does a very good look at the Mighty Garand. Plus its does not cost a fortune either. It is readily available too at Midway USA or Amazon.
Know your Broomhandle Mausers by RJ Berger
Know your 45 Auto Pistols by E J Hoffschmidt
Both are solid works and in easily to understand terms
The Hunting Rifle by Jack O’Connor (Its just 1st rate)
The Man could really write well and clearly!
Mister Rifleman By Col. Townsend Whelen & Bradford Angier
Now I have owned this book since Xmas of 1969, When my Wonderful Uncle Max and Aunt Doris gave me this copy. I have found it a wealth of really useful information & is one of my all time favorite books.
I cannot recommend this book high enough! Especially for those out there who are interested in the 1903 Springfield and the Old Krag- Jorgenson Rifle. The man really lived a full and interesting life. That and he could write oh so well.
Now finding a copy will be hard and expensive. But it will be well worth the efforts and cost in my humble opinion.
Cartridges of the World Frank C. Barnes
Now this is a reference Book. But is just packed with some of the best information about the complex universe of Ammunition. It is also very easy to get a copy and does not cost a fortune either.
All I know is that I learned a lot from it. But then I have always been a dim light.
Now I have been told by Friends that I trust. Who do reload. (I do not because I do not trust myself enough) That is a a very useful book
