The following section is transcluded from Guns and Bullets. To modify, please edit the source page.

A pre-War magazine devoted to firearms and ammunition, compiled annually into a book.[1] It was a publication with plenty of good articles on the practical use of firearms (and occasional biased reviews).[2]
