firstname.lastname@example.org , 04/22/97, rating=10: Excellent Resource Book for Firearms Novice or Expert Survival Guns is an excellent primer (no pun intended) devoted to selecting firearms for survival use. While it was written to cater to the survivalist movement of the late 1970s, much of the information is still relevant in the '90s. He provides fundamental information for selecting and using handguns, rifles, shotguns for hunting and self-defense, and provides pointers to additional references for more information. If you are a novice interested in getting started in shooting, or an expert shooter interested in broadening your knowledge of different types of firearms, it is well recommended and an entertaining book to read.

The Ultimate Sniper : An Advanced Training Manual for Military and Police Snipers by John L., Major Plaster
A Reader from NY, NY , 03/06/98, rating=10: READ THIS BOOK!!! Before I read this book I was an average (or just slightly above) rifle shot. After reading it and applying it's lessons on marksmanship and rifle selection/care, I now routinly hit eggs at 100 meters. This is ONE GOOD BOOK.
email@example.com , 07/08/97, rating=10: The definitive text in its field I have read all of the current literature on police and military precision rifle and find this work the most useful and comprehensive. The army should have let the Major write FM 23-10
firstname.lastname@example.org , 01/08/97, rating=10: a must read for anyone interested in long range shooting I am a VietNam Army vet. I wish I had read this book before I went to Nam. It is very well written explaination of all aspects of long range rifle shooting. The only thing you need in addition to this book is an accurate rifle and some range time to practice the techniques. Thanks Major for writing something for us 'grunts'.
email@example.com , 07/25/96, rating=10: Very accurate and informative As an Army vet I was amazed at how much information this book contained. It is very useful in any kind of hunting or camping activities as well as the art of sniping it self. A must read for any one who likes hunting big game out west or is interested in being able to track game in the east coast wooded areas.
Marine Sniper : 93 Confirmed Kills
by Charles Henderson
Jake Livingston (firstname.lastname@example.org) , 06/07/97, rating=10: Perhaps the best book I've ever read Practically everyone who knows me has heard me rave on and on about this book. I read it for the first time about 4 years ago, after picking it up while browsing through the bookstore. I read the excerpt at the front recounting the Vietnamese general's final moments and I was hooked. I recently finished it again, and it was even better this time. Everything that happens to Hathcock seems like something out of a movie; something no mortal man could survive. I learned to respect the discipline and will-power of a well-trained Marine, and was left in awe of the effectiveness of the sniper. Charles Henderson does his part, too. He not only tells Hathcock's incredible story, but makes it an immersive, addictive one to read. Through his clear and descriptive writing, the reader is transported back in time to the dark "Charlie"-filled jungles of Vietnam, where he lies beside the sniper known as "Long Tra'ng" and experiences not only the satisfaction of a well-placed shot, but also the emotional struggles that a man must deal with when he takes the life of another one. Undoubtedly a timeless classic.
email@example.com (Keith A.Collins) , 03/20/97, rating=10: Having served with Gunnery Sgt. Hathcock @ Weapons Trng. Bn.,Quantico, Va. I can personally attest to Gny. Sgt. Hathcocks demeanor and willingness to help out the troops.Through many hours of labous/painful hours he consistantly turned out the most feared troops in the world,"Marine Snipers".This book simply tells it like it was and how it is when armed conflict brings war down to a personal basis.To all that read this let it be known that there is not finer Marine to be found than Gunnery Sgt. Carlos Hathcock. Semper Fi ,Gunny.
