"The Buffalo Harvest" by Frank H. Mayer

"In Search Of The Buffalo" The Storey of J. Wright Mooar by Charles G. Anderson.

Two fascinating insights into the real lives of 2 oldtime buffalo hunters,
Frank Mayer who in 1954 died at the age of 104 and Josiah Wright Mooar one of the few men to shoot a white buffalo.

War of the rats by David Robbins.

Set in Stalingrad it is a novel based on the Russian sniper Vassily Zaitsev and his alleged duel with the German sniper Koenig. I don`t read much fiction but this is a gem for anyone interested in shooting.
As an aside,STALINGRAD by Antony Beevor, whilst obviously being non-fiction,is a book you will not put down.It is difficult to comprehend the horror endured by both sides in this battle.

This is A MUST READ for the gun owner,Hunter.

It is a 861 page spell binding filled book with guns ,shooting, history, hunting, flying, more guns and just enough sex to spice it up a little bit.

A great novel for the gun person every gun person should read it.
I picked this book up and couldn't put it I have read over a couple of times every body I recommend it to has had nothing but great things to say about it.
