Having held out for years, Dan Shideler gives the SKS a chance.
Remington's big-bore guide rifle is one collectors will love. And you don't even have to be a guide.
Never heard of the Pieper Volley Gun, have you? Neither had I until I stumbled across it in the LaPorte museum. If the LaPorte museum's W. A. Jones Collection of Antique Firearms contains the damndest stuff you've ever seen, then their Pieper Volley Gun has got to be the double-damndest.
I've never had much use for semi-auto pistols. Compared to revolvers, they've always seemed to me to be clunky, awkward things. As for their supposed tactical superiority, well, I can't argue that; but the thought of my actually being involved in anything even remotely tactical is just absurd.
If you've ever read my columns, you're aware that I'm fascinated by oddball firearms. Perhaps you are, too. If so, Winant's Firearms Curiosa is a must-have.

My regular readers (both of them) know that I have a deep, abiding affection for the mini-revolvers of North American Arms (NAA).
The Gun Digest staff took a trio of Ithaca shotguns to the range to put them through their paces and see what we liked and didn't like. There wasn't much of the latter to be found.
In terms of firearms annuals, Gun Digest is unique. It has consistently attracted the biggest names in the business, and it's more fun to collect than guns.
