Solid hunting advice from the world's most famous turkey hunter. Before the celebrated "return" of American wild turkey populations, a boy named Ray Eye was born into a hunting tradition rooted in one of the remaining turkey strongholds, deep in the Missouri Ozark Mountains. He grew up living with those turkeys and essentially becoming one of them. It is because of this experience that Ray Eye is truly qualified to write his Turkey Hunter's Bible. His sense of history and his perspective on wild turkeys will be appreciated by every turkey hunter. Ray has decided to lay all of his cards face up on the table, revealing exactly what he does to find, scout, call, and kill turkeys from one end of their range to the other. He goes into intimate detail about everything, including the secret to calling turkeys any day of the year! Now as an added bonus, a DVD will come packaged with the book detailing the various calls you can use to lure a turkey, as well as different turkey hunting tactics.

In the wake of tragic shootings in Newtown and Aurora, the anti-gun lobby has launched a campaign of lies, distortion, misrepresentation, and emotional manipulation that is breathtaking in its vitriol and its denial of basic facts. Their goal is to take away our Second Amendment rights and then disarm law-abiding Americans. Emily Miller tells her personal story of how being a single, female victim of a home invasion drove her to try to obtain a legally registered gun in Washington, D.C. The narrative--sometimes shocking, other times hilarious in its absurdity--gives the reader a real life understanding of how gun-control laws only make it more difficult for honest, law-abiding people to get guns, while violent crime continues to rise. Using facts and newly uncovered research, Miller exposes the schemes politicianson Capitol Hill, in the White House, and around the country are using to deny people their Second Amendment rights. She exposes the myths that gun grabbers and liberal media use to get new laws passed that infringe on our right to keep and bear arms. The gun rights debate isn't just about firearms. It's about protecting a fundamental right that is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. It's about politicians who lie, manipulate, and outright break existing laws to get what they want. It's about President Obama wanting a bigger federal government to control you. Not just your guns--you. The fight for gun rights is the fight for freedom. Emily Miller says stand up and fight back now because your Second Amendment will only be the first to go.

The evolution of automatic weapons is one of the most significant developments in weapons history. While this development has been filled with disagreements, controversy, and stray hurdles, out of all of this tumult, shouting, and shooting has come the progress in firearms from the days when it was necessary to build a fire under a gun to make it go off to the "you press the button and they do the work" automatic firearms of the present day. In 1941, Melvin M. Johnson Jr. and Charles T. Haven, both well-established experts on firearms and ammunitions in their day, commemorated this development in Automatic Arms: Their History, Development and Use. The topics they illuminate the reader on include: History and development How they work How to keep them firing How they may be employed in combat Miscellaneous considerations In the authors' foreword, they state, "There has been a great deal of general discussion about various automatic weapons pro and con, and naturally there have been misunderstandings and misinterpretations." They succeed immensely in their endeavor to clear up misunderstandings and misinterpretations with the clear, concise language they use in discussing this most notable of historical developments.

"Here, point and shoot."" These words from his father propelled Buz Fawcett's shooting success as a child, gaining him a number of High Gun awards at local trap clubs by the time he was fourteen. Because of his success, his father awarded him his grandfather's Model 1912 Winchester, which he mastered, even though it "kicked the whey" out of him.
However, his amazing shooting abilities as a kid didn't follow him into adulthood. Fawcett entered into what he calls his "Dark Ages" of shooting after accepting an associate editor position at" Sports Afield" in New York City, where he had to read and edit what other gunmen were writing about shooting techniques. Eventually, he took a position as editor of "Guns & Ammo" magazine, located in California. He soon found himself in a position where he could shoot as much as he liked.
After a number of years and extensive research into shooting methods, Fawcett rediscovered his talents through a technique called "Instinctive Shooting." This research and a lot of practice finally led to teaching a workshop on instinctive shooting to help others become adept at this miraculous "point and shoot" method. "Instinctive Shooting" is Fawcett's guide for other gunmen, describing exactly how and what needs to be done to achieve the ultimate shooting instincts. Practical and hands-on, the book covers such topics as determining your dominant eye, achieving proper shotgun fit, how to correct point and shoot, selecting equipment, practice regimens, mounting, and much more.

Every year millions of sportsmen and women take to America's fields and forests equipped with some type of shotgun. Millions of others participate annually in shotgun sports such as skeet, trap and sporting clays. In Modern Shotgunning, Dave Henderson gives readers a nuts-and-bolts look at modern shotguns. He explains chokes, stocks, barrels, and optics, as well as cleaning and safety practices. He also discusses how to choose the appropriate shotgun, shotgun games, gun fit, hand loading, and building your own specialty guns. Henderson doesn't write above his readers either, offering plainly written advice based on years of experience in the field and at the range. He writes without boast that in a year he probably shoots more rounds than do most hunters in a lifetime. Neither is Henderson leaning toward the heavy-wallet crowd, for he knows the average hunter may not care for or cannot afford two-thousand-dollar shotguns, souped-up slug guns or optics. He offers tips for the budget-conscious, such as creating a cleaning rod from a soft pine dowel with a bicycle handlebar grip on one end and using Bounty paper towels rolled to bore diameter as a cleaning patch. Modern Shotgunning is ideal for beginners but not to be overlooked by veterans.

A result of twelve years of research, "The Modern Day Gunslinger" was written to meet the needs of the gun owner, the experienced shooter, those who own a weapon strictly for home and self-defense, and for the military member who wants to become a better shooter in defense of our country. It's also for the law enforcement of?cer who risks his or her life going against the thugs of our society, and for anyone interested in learning the defensive and tactical training techniques from some of the best and most experienced shooters in the world.
The shooting skills taught in this book carry broad application in civilian, law enforcement, and military contexts. Common criminals, terrorists, assailants--the enemy and threat--all will ?nd themselves outgunned in the face of a properly armed and trained gunslinger. Members of the armed services, government and law enforcement agencies, as well as civilians, will ?nd that the close-range shooting methods addressed in this book can provide a decisive advantage. An all-encompassing manual that addresses safety, equipment, tactics, and the best practices for all shooters, "The Modern Day Gunslinger "is the most all-encompassing book on shooting ever published. It's a book that, in the words of senior special agent and U.S. government senior weapons and tactics instructor Dick Conger, "will save lives."
