Practical Markmanship. M. M. Johnson. jr. Practical Markmanship. M. M. Johnson. jr.

Most gun people know about Melvin Johnson from the M1941 Johnson rifle he designed with his company, Johnson Automatics, as a competitor to John Garand's more successful design. Few realized that he was also a serious marksman involved in formal competition shooting.

As the name implies, Practical Marksmanship is an overview of real world field and military shooting with rifles and machine guns. While not directed specifically at competition shooting, it derives influence from the competition world, as does all high level marksmanship. Noted in the chapter, "Target Practice and the Combat Training of the Soldier":
"Target practice, properly conduced over a sufficient period of time and with correct psychological approach, is the most efficient, the most practical, and the most valuable means of creating military character, or 'Fighting Heart.' "
Johnson goes from there and give guidance for making elevation and windage corrections at unknown ranges, engaging with snap shots, against moving targets, and gunnery with machine guns. Overall, this is a fairly complete, yet concise, book on field shooting I've read to date.

a U.S. Army Manual
What makes a heavy machine gun designed and developed in the latter days of World War I still relevant to modern militaries? Reliability, durability and longevity, coupled with a hard-hitting, accurate .50-calibre cartridge designed specifically for this machine gun from the .30-06 cartridge - one of the most successful, versatile and popular rifle cartridges ever. developed.
In 1918, as the German military developed thicker armor plate to withstand hits from American rifle cartridges, American firearms genius John Moses Browning was tasked with designing a heavy machine gun to fire a new .50-caliber cartridge capable of penetrating that armour. Browning came up with his famous .50-caliber M2 heavy machine gun, known affectionately to doughboys, GIs, grunts, aircrews, sailors and devil dogs as "Ma Deuce."
This latest edition of the U.S. Army FM 23-36 Browning .50-caliber manual includes an extensive foreword that outlines the history and development of the M2 and its use by the military forces of at least 90 countries throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. This is a must-read for anyone ­interested in the operation and maintenance of this incredible weapon.

Picture displayed is of a current copy.

It is now more than 100 years since Elmer Keith developed a keen interest in handguns. As the decades became a part of the past, Elmer Keith was recognized as a great shot on the range and in the field and the leading pistol and revolver authority in the land. It is very likely that he burned more gunpowder than any man living today. Extensive experiments were conducted in arms design and with ammunition. His bullets and loads, the result of these efforts, are still in common use today.
Many friends, not the least of whom was Judge Don Martin of Salmon, Idaho, prevailed upon Elmer Keith to produce a major opus sharing his vast knowledge of handguns and shooting techniques. Sixguns is the answer to this demand.

Paul S. Scarlata
Bolt Action Military Rifles are the hottest field in arms collecting today - and it's easy to see why! While there are plenty of inexpensive examples out there to entice beginning collectors, there are just as many great rarities and exotic models for the experts. In this new book, author Paul Scarlata, one of the most recognized names in gun writing today, covers all aspects of this exciting field. He clearly describes all of the various bolt action systems used by the different nations, and how they differ from each other. Over 400 large photographs detail key features you will need to recognize in order to identify guns for your collection. Learn the original military configurations of these service rifles so that you can tell them apart from altered guns and bad restorations. The historical sections are particularly strong, giving readers a clear understanding of how and why these rifles were developed, and which troops used them. Advanced collectors will be fascinated by the countless historical photographs of these guns in the hands of troops. And, in order to show which rifles were superior to others and why some armies had an advantage over their rivals, Scarlata tests a selection of these rifles on the range, giving you in-depth reports on their performance, not just for accuracy, but for ease of use, durability, quality of ammunition and combat effectiveness. During the era of the classic bolt action military rifle, a soldier's rifle was his best friend, protecting him from danger and serving him faithfully. For today's collector, Paul Scarlata's exciting new book may be just as important.
