I like the Standard Catalog of Firearms and the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms. Blue Book is good but almost no picture if your trying to identify a firearm. The two above are loaded with pictures. I also have a book titled "Ruger & His Guns, A history of the man, the company and their firearms." Its a coffee table type book but has a lot of the history.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
