For years I looked forward to August because I knew that summer in Texas would be over in another two months and that the Gun Digest would hit the newsstands. Those were the days of the "classic" Gun Digest which was edited, written, printed and (I imagine) distributed by the late John Amber who could only be considered one of the great characters of the gun business. The old GDs were filled with grainy black and white photography that, in some cases left me wondering if the lion in the picture was facing north or south but the publication couldn't be beat for solid articles and some great nostalgia pieces. After Amber retired I got away from the publication for awhile, the content seemed to have changed and it didn't seem to have that same mix of expertise and sort of snooty elan of the Amber days. Now I have re-discovered it. This edition is one of the best, a good mix of historical articles and enough of the modern stuff to compete with the internet blogs that seem to have all the information about a new gun before it is in the hands of the distributors. The photography is outstanding and the book itself is just pretty. It has very high production values which make it more of a resource than an annual publication that will be forgotten until the next garage sale. It isn't like meeting an old friend, it is like making a new one.
Classic bible of firearms information! This book should be in every firearms owners library. A wealth of information on firearms, ammunition and related subjects. It also keeps you up to date as to new firearms and current trends in the industry.
what can you sat about this annual? it's been around since just after world war II, and for good reason. articles that appeal to many interests, useful ballistics info and a catalog of guns ranging from pre-civil war types to big-buck airguns. a yearly "must have" for me.
I enjoy the articles and being able to compare models against models.
Bought this for my husband who is glad to add this latest version to his library for reference. Always THE book to go to for accurate info.
The annual Gun Digest is one of the standards of the gun book industry and one that all enthusiasts, collectors and admirers of firearms technology should have on hand. Best is to buy the electronic compilation so you can have past copies on a CD, but the annual issue is a must read.
I get the Gun DIgest annual every year, and it always amazes me how much information it contains on all aspects of firearms owning and usage. Both historical and up-to-date subjects are covered. An extensive list of available firearms, air guns, and ammunition, and accessories are in each issue. One Good Gun is probably my favorite feature.
Both articles and gun listings are lacking in my view. In many cases detailed information is missing, discussions are over generalized and/or missing key story components, gun listing are very terse, have data and editing errors, and many are missing photos. Maybe I'll do better with the new Shooters Bible but this 2015 issue of Gun Digest was of little benefit to me.
