Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! Remarkable how all of us have several volumes unique to our own collection.

Next on my list is some more Charles Landis books, and some of the DeHaas single shot books.

All I need now is time to read them ..........

Hunting with the Twenty Two
by Landis will put you square in the middle of the woods at dawn, waiting for the bushytails to emerge.

Besides the one on my shelf (which I haven't read yet) I've also got two more in their plastic wrap from the last printing. I need to get around to posting them for sale.

Also, if you like hunting stories, I strongly recommend "The Everlasting Stream".

Great selection! I always turn jealous when I see books like yours that I don't have. I'll just have to keep my eyes open.

I saw a mention of this book in the Community Forum, and found a well preserved copy on Amazon. Published in 1957, can't wait to give it a read.

Yep, there's good stuff in there, with some opinions that will make you say "Hmmmm".

A really good one that I don't think anyone has mentioned (Thanks Photobucket) is Mel Tappan's Survival Guns. It was published in the 1980's and includes a lot of classic .22 rifles and handguns.

C.S. Landis was a very gifted writer.

Also The Complete Book of the .22 by Wayne Van Zwoll is excellent. His style is like a modern day Landis. His knowledge of this caliber is incredible.

Here is a link to an old RFC thread started by RFC member Crete about rimfire books. No pictures, but names and authors provided. Well worth referencing too.
