I agree with the other reviews that the 103rd edition is the best yet. Particularly like the color images of new guns at the front. I enjoy grazing new gun models to see what is out there.Big find -- a stainless Browning BPS AW HiCap on page 55. I just finished shooting, then sold, both a Remington 870 Marine Magnum and a Mossberg Mariner. Now I'm interested in Browning's treatment of the stainless pump. Didn't know it existed until I found it thumbing thru Shooter's Bible.Also got interested in a Rem 1100 Competition Synthetic on p59, Nosler's bolt guns (yes, the ammo maker has moved into firearms) on p38, Remington's 700 SPS Tactical with AAC-SD suppressor on p39, Rossi's stainless 92 lever action on p42, and the Browning 1911-22 on p67 (got one, but haven't shot it yet).I guess that's the one problem with the Bible: I see too much stuff I want.
There is a reason why Shooter's Bible has been around for 103 years and it shows in the most recent edition. The photographs provide the necessary eye candy every shooter wants with all the technical specifications a gun nut needs.
The "Shooter's Bible" has been a mainstay for hunters and shooters since 1925 with early editions having become very collectible, and under editor Jay Cassell the 103rd edition's even better. The heart of the book is all of those really cool firearms (in full color in the "New Products" section); but the bonus features, like Wayne van Zwoll's fact- and experience-filled chapters on accurate shooting, also add to the work.
About 30 years ago, The Shooter's Bible filled an important niche for hunters and firearms hobbyists. Today, with internet sites and dozens of specialized titles available at the newstand, the Bible provides only a superficial overview of the industry. Each category included, from firearm listings to ballistic information is extemely limited. The Bible is an advertising platform portrayed as a reference book. The authors provide little independent testing or review of the products displayed. This has always been typical of the Shooter's Bible... For pictures and detailed reviews about weapons, accessories or ballistics, save your money and get busy online. All of the information is available, free of charge.
Many inaccurate facts and figures. Definitely NOT the Bible. This is not the Shooter's Bible that it was several years ago. The accuracy and detail has long departed from what this publication used to be. I would be ashamed to publish such garbage.
Covers seemingly all firearms on the market but of course with this many guns all you can provide is basic information on each one. If you are only interested in a few firearms the information could be looked up on the internet.This is a good book if you want general information on all firearms (or seemingly) on the market in one place.
Have not had a copy of the old Shooters Bible for at least 40 years. Todays version is a very poor example of what it use to be.
Being rather new to gun ownership I have been trying to acquire some resources to become more knowledgeable. Wanting to know more about "what was available" I found this book and thought it would serve my needs. It is a very helpful book to learn of resources and it was exactly what I wanted and ordered.
