Books

While the internet dominates the world today and one can find most any tidbit of information he wants if he's the patience to look
far and wide enough, books still prevail as valuable sources of information, much of which has not been transcribed to the digital
realm yet. That makes those books that have not been transcripted a valuable commodity for two important reasons--they contain
information not otherwise available and they are collectible.

Below, you will find book titles, both collectible and modern, along with information on where to find them if that information is
available to
Universal Shooter. We will be adding to the list from time to time, so, keep checking.



Collectibles

Books are collectible for a number of reasons--because they contain needed information, because they are rare first editions or
signed and dated, out-of-print, or have some nostalgic or historic value. Books no longer in print are often found in used book
stores, antique shops, at flea markets, library sales and garage sales. More often than not, the seller has no idea of the book's
value--particularly if it is on a subject of special interest, 'reloading' for example--and they can be purchased for pennies.  

Below, find a list of books of special interest to shooters and sportsmen, collected under various subtitles.
