    Suggestions for gun books for vacation?

    Post by Tennessee Jed on Mon May 04, 2015 11:48 am

    Getting ready to take the family on a vacation soon. Will be at the beach for a few days. I'm looking for a couple of good gun books, with lots of pictures. When I go on vacation to the beach, I prefer books with lots of pictures because I get really lazy really fast.

    Has anyone seen any good gun books lately? Pictures could be semi-optional. Examples of good gun books I've taken in the past are "No Second Chance" by Bill Jordan, "Greatest Handguns of the World, Volumes 1 and 2" by Massad Ayoob, and "Snubby Manual" by Ed Lovette.

    Thanks.

    I'm enjoying Dana Loesch's Hands Off My Gun.

    There's Grant Cunningham's many books - but you do have to filter out the Hippie. And don't forget Doc Wesson's many efforts.

    I'm about to order Jeff Cooper's highly recommended The Art of the Rifle

    Of course, anything by Mas. However, if you're reading Stressfire II, don't share the shotgun postmortem pictures with your SigOth, especially over dinner. Don't ask me how I know.

    I am not sure Mas has any necessarily new info, but I think perhaps his organization has gotten better. You might consider one of his latest. Deadly Force - Understanding Your Right to Self Defense. I found it particularly useful in preparing for my recent CCW course.

    Something completely out of the park

    July 1914 By some Irish guy (who apparently teaches in Instanbul). It is a detailed study of the various moves, beginning with the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo on Vidov Dan (June 28) a major holiday for Serbs. I can't much agree with his conclusions (they are just a bit too narrow-eyed, with no consideration for the events as a whole) but he certainly details all the diplomatic and political moves of that month - plus a few days on either side. If you have any interest in WWI, you will find it interesting.

    Stephen E. Ambrose's Band of Brothers is kind of a classic one I reread from time to time.
