New Book in the Works

I am in the process of putting a new book together. The project will cover a hodge-podge of topics centered on guns. It will offer a no nonsense, truthful and in some cases behind the scenes look at things like junk guns, cartridge comparisons, ballistic myths, concealed carry, firearms training, gun magazines, gun blogs and even gunwriters. I can’t reveal the format and all the details right now (We have not even settled on a title.) but I would like some input.

What I would like to know is if there are any topics you would like to have addressed? Are there things you want to know about that you feel get glossed over by gun magazines? Are there things you think are kept secret from consumers? Things like gun and ammo pricing, custom firearms and the ATF.

Give me your ideas and your questions and I’ll start the investigation to find the truths, lies and misconceptions.


About gunwriter

Born and raised in the West Virginia hills, Richard literally grew up in the woods. He has chased coon hounds until daylight, waited out whitetails perched high in an oak, canoed the New River and hunted from the Montana Mountains to the Green Hills of Africa. During service in the Army and later as a municipal police officer and Special Agent with the railroad police, Richard obtained numerous certifications in small arms instruction. He has trained military personnel, law enforcement officers and civilians in the application of firearms for defensive, competitive and recreational use. Richard won the West Virginia Governor’s Twenty Award for law enforcement, the West Virginia National Guard State Pistol Competition and earned his Distinguished Medal with pistol. Badge turned in, Richard is now a contributing editor for several magazines. He was the compiling author of the book, Rifle Bullets for the Hunter and conceptualized and contributed to Selecting and Ordering a Custom Hunting Rifle. Richard also contributed a chapter to the John Velke book, The True Story of the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency. Richard has patents on a riflescope reticle and a revolutionary bullet testing media. A hillbilly at heart, Richard lives on Shadowland - his shooting range in West Virginia - with the most understanding wife in the world, their three kids and a very protective ridgeback hound.

    I would like to find out if load development for handloaders is best handled by newer techniques such as Audette ladder method or Dan Newberry’s OCW or should I just keep my old system?…jim dodd

    On book production I thought your editor last time around (in Rifle Bullets for the Hunter) did not do well by you, and the layout and design by Wild Country Studio were not to print industry standards (I got a hold of them and suggested they get a copy of Words into Type when they told me this was their first print job).

    Anyway, good luck with this project…jim

    You already know what I’m going to say, we need to talk more about it.

    I am retired and on a fixed income and have been shooting and reloading for forty plus years and cannot understand all the unbelievable price hikes on ammo and components. Like gasoline prices I am quite unsure of all the so called “reasons” why this is going on.
