Suggestions of "good" gun books?
 
I recently purchased a few gun related books, and found some better than others. I was specifically looking for reference type books, and I came across "L.C. Smith, The Legend Lives". I am letting husband pick up an LC for Christmas, and thought this book would be a nice companion, as we have started to collect old shotguns.

I ordered this book through the internet, and when it arrived I was extremly pleased--its one of the most exceptional gun books I have seen. It has beautiful photos, excellent information and covers all sorts of topis including the history of the company, grades manufactered and more.

Anyway, the point of this post; I was wondering if any of you could suggest some good gun books--whether as references, or as entertainment.

I collect books as well as shoot, so I figured I would combine my two passions. :)

And with all the bad news out in the world this last couple of weeks, wanted to think about something pleasant for once.

Massad Ayoob has a new one just out, "The Gun Digest Book of Concealed Carry."

You can hear him interviewed about it at;

Umm what I could see is that FM 23-45 is for a browning .30cal.... just seems a lil random is there something in there worth it for other systems?

Typo, it should read FM 23-35. It was originally the Basic Manual for M1911 and M1911A1 .45 ACP Pistols. It has since become Combat Training, Pistols and Revolvers.

John Plaster's "Ultimate Sniper" is a great read and has much more information than just taking a cold bore shot on some bad guy.

Macpherson on "Accurizing the Factory Rifle" is a good read to help understand what goes into making a rifle shoot well/better

Precision Shooting Magazine is always a good read and they have some very good contributors that include some of the previous authors.

Art Pejsa's Handbook of New Precision Ballistics is very heavy ( mentally, not in weight ) but the man is basically the All Father of all modern Ballistic theory and knowledge.

I have a few more in the library at home that I will have to paw through and see what I can recommend. :p
