The Gun Digest Book of Ruger Revolvers

ruger bookI’ve just pre-ordered a new history book for my gun bookshelf:  The Gun Digest Book of Ruger Revolvers.

I saw a press release on this book earlier in the week, and just took a look at it on Amazon.  Amazon has a great feature that allows you to review parts of the book prior to purchase to see what the writing and photography is like.  After being disappointed with the Standard Catalog of Remington Firearms (read my review here), I was wary about investing in another “authoritative” text on guns.  But, this new Ruger book looks to be very good.

New Hornady Reloading Manual

new Hornady Reloading ManualA new Hornady reloading manual was just announced and will be available on December 1.  I’m expecting that the 9th Edition Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading will be an worthy successor in a line of excellent handloading books from the company.

I bought my first manual (actually, it was a two volume set) back in the mid- to late-90’s and I used it to both develop loads and just learn about cartridges.  When I purchased the set, I was only loading for the .38 Special.  Since then, I’ve added a few more calibers, but the Hornady manuals are still a staple on my bookshelf.
