The problem with talking about firearms is that people tend to be either gun nuts or they’re totally ignorant and/or scared to death of firearms. If you’re a novice and try to find answers online you’re soon flooded with divergent opinions, conflicting advice, and sometimes ridicule for asking such “stupid” questions.
Finding answers in person, in a gun store, surrounded by firearm devotees, is even more intimidating! Who, in their right mind wants to embarrass themselves in a room full of complete strangers!
The print version of this book is titled The Gun Guide for Those Who Know Nothing About Firearms. It’s also available at Amazon Books.
This book takes those who are new to the world of firearms and explains the basics of how firearms work, the strengths and weaknesses of every major type of firearm you’re likely to encounter, and in the final section, shows you how to evaluate firearm and ammunition choices. When you’re finished reading this book you’ll be equipped to make an informed purchase that takes into account your budget and your needs.
I’m just starting to get into guns and shooting and this book gave me enough information that I finally feel ready to enter a gunstore for the first time. This book will do nothing for anybody who is already into guns and shootings, but as the title suggests this book is for the complete newbie. Book covered a lot of the basics on how guns work (what “action” means, etc.), as well as a good starting point on what all the different rounds of ammunition are. A great book for the total beginner. And like I said, it gave me enough knowledge that when I go into a gun store, I won’t be totally confused by all the terms.
