My parents got me his other book on gunsmithing a few years back for Christmas. It still is a favorite and is close by on my shelf at all times.My latest - "Gunsmithing Modern Firearms" by Bryce Towsley. "A gun guy's guide to making good guns even better." (found at brycetowsley.com)
Bryce is my favorite writer in American Hunter magazine. He authored the Number 1 selling hunting books about the Benoit family from Vermont. I even met him once! Whether you're looking to do advanced cleaning, cutting off a barrel, bulding your own rifle (bolt or AR), etc, then you'll love this book. I've even gotten ideas for new "must have" gun stuff - Lyman Bore Scope that won't break your wallet. If you're a gun guy, then I think you'll really enjoy this read, plus his humor has had me laughing a lot of times....
I finished all the originals about 10 years ago, the new ghost written ones are fine beach reads, I like the Oregon files, but they lack the je ne sais quoi of the originals... I think Valhalla Rising is my favorite.some Clive Cussler book . his books are like loui lamours but take place on the ocean in modern times instead of the west
the french have a saying,,the more things change the more they stay the same,,Currently been working on "Hunting Trips of a Ranchman" by Theodore Roosevelt. It's a bit of a tough read because there's almost no storyline to the book. It's just semi random facts and stories about animals and hunts as if someone was bsing around a campfire. It's interesting though that some of the things he brings up still rings true today like the ethics of long range hunting for example.
