I had to go on a field trip to Dan Coonan's shop today.
While sitting around after the gab fest I noticed this book.

Building Your
Gunsmithing Library:
An Indexed Review of Gunsmithing Books

This book is from Midway USA
It reviews 104 books dealing with every type of 'smithing your little heart could desire.:)

I was a little bummed to see many of the books on my shelves are out of print.:eek: So what if one of them is 54 years old.:( (this is a 2005 printing date) So...54+4 is.....well, I guess it might be out of print, at that.:biglaugh:

I "Borrowed" it for a "bit" to look through it. Really an excellent reference.
You can probably get details from the 'internets' (Thank you, George)

Books? We don't need no stinking books! We have you and log man! :biglaugh:

Here's a link to the book. 'taint cheap! :(


P.S. - Plus I recently picked up an absolutely superb book about building 1911s written by some guy from ... let's see ... "Mountain Home, Arkansas." Chock full of info, and it'll be quite a while before I digest all that. ;)
