This is the definitive one-volume encyclopedic source for information on rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Under Field and Steam magazine's executive editor Petzal's supervision, a small army of Who's Who -level editors, consultants, and writers have crafted this masterpiece. Basic terminology is used throughout, and the 2200 entries range in length from one paragraph to several pages. There are cross references and a competent bibliography. Particularly interesting are the well-written biographical sketches of Colt, Remington, DuPont, Winchester, and other firearms legends. Lengthy space is devoted to the cartridges for various big game, while the topical articles maintain a detailed, well-rounded historical perspective. Foreign coverage is slight. No assault rifles are present, although some fall within the parameters of the text. In short, included are nearly everything from the Daisy Air Rifle on upward. Highly recommended for reference, large public, academic, and military libraries.
