Review: Lyman Black Powder Handbook & Loading Manual 2nd Edition

Whenever I find myself approaching something I am not familiar with, which happens more often then I’d like to admit, I try to locate some sources of good basic information that will help me to become familiar with the subject at hand.

Review: Colt: An American Legend

I purchased “Colt: An American Legend” out of an interest I developed in the history of Harley Davidson and Smith & Wesson; a number of great American corporate institutions have followed a wandering path.

Review: Swift Bullet Company Reloading Manual Number One

In the process of reloading, I’ve come to appreciate Swift bullets.
