We've said it before, guns are just always an area we're drawn to. But what good is the knowledge if you don't have the right skills? Field & Stream in association with Weldon Owen produced a book for just that, The Total Gun Manual, giving you 335 skills you need to know for rifles, shot guns, and everything else gun related.
The Total Gun Manual will give guidance to all gun owners, from first timers, to well-seasoned regulars. Starting with basics on safety and proper usage, this book jumps right into rifles and hand guns. Breaking down the components it quickly gets into more advanced topics, covering all aspects of rifles and handguns in an easy to read fashion. Next up are the shot guns, following the same steps, the first thing they cover is the anatomy, then you can get into some real detail about gun maintenance, shooting, and general tips.
What I love about this book is how everything is broken down into very easy to read segments. This book is perfect for someone who just wants to browse or someone looking to know it all. With thorough descriptions on everything, nearly every tip in this book is accompanied with images and illustrations to drive the point home. With the book being broken down into numbered tips and skills, it's easy to pick up and set back down any time you have a bit of time to kill.
If you're looking for a new product for the hunter in your family, or someone who just has an appreciation for firearms, the Total Gun Manual is packed full of great tips and advice. The layout of the book makes it the perfect piece of coffee table literature that you can pick it up learn something new in a minute and set it back down. Even just flipping the pages with the illustrations and images, you're bound to see something that jumps out at you. We recommend you give this one a look!
