Default Shooting World War Two Small Arms

That's the title of Mike Venturino's new book. The thing which sets Mike's books apart for all others is that first word "shooting". He shoots and reloads for the actual guns he is writing about whether it be Colt Single Actions, Old West Leverguns, Buffalo Rifles or now WWII Small Arms. He has chapters on rifles, pistols, carbines, submachineguns, machineguns and sniper rifles. I don't buy a lot of books but I have all of Mike's books and find them very useful as reference and reloading guides.

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.

Yes, I have the world largest inventory of books. A public Library card. I will see if they have that issue of Mr. Venturino's books. Thanks for the tip.

Too soon old . . . Too late smart.

Well good luck with that library card, I've never found much material on guns or shooting at the public library even though I've always lived in "gun country".

I used to frequent the library, but now the hunting/shooting/fishing section is about 18 inches wide on one shelf.
but if you want to read about black history etc., there's thousands of books to choose from.

So the last time I ran across some ladies burning their bra's, I tossed in my library card.

democrats are in favor of the wholesale slaughter of God's most precious; unborn babies.

I found it online for $47 in hardbound. I once belonged to a shooting club that shot various military arms in scenarios that corresponded to the wars the weapons were used in. I was the historian and had to pass on which weapons would have been in use in the particular scenario. I shot a WWl trench scenario using a 1019 Brazilian Mauser. Brazil sent a half battalion to France. It was summer in Brazil so some of the soldiers were barefoot when the arrived in France. This book would have been very useful to me.
