Ok, like practically every guy that exists, I'm just fascinated with guns. There's nothing creepy about it, guns have seen more scientific focus than most anything we have. Maybe that's a poor reflection on the human race, but it is something you can still come to appreciate. Today we'll be taking a look Gun: 100 Greatest Firearms as it walks you through the history and the innovation.

The 100 Greatest Firearms

The 100 Greatest Firearms covers weaponry from before the civil war and into current day, touching on all varieties, from hand guns, the rifles, shot guns, and even a few automatics. The book gives brief histories on everything, but keeps it short enough that you never get tired of it. The descriptions were written by people who knew what they were saying, pointing out interesting facts, and not just reciting manufacturing specs.

The best part about this book is the illustrations. Most guns get a large two page spread with close ups on the detail work and they give you views from just about every angle. This is a perfect coffee table book, or one for any gun enthousiast. When I picked it up, I had a hard time putting it down, just about went through the book in one sitting, and have returned to it a number of times after. It covers a lot but keeps it light, and like I said, the illustrations alone, make it worth while. This one is a win.
