AFAIC, the world's best "book" on .22s is right here, and you're reading it.

Thousands of years of combined knowledge, updated on a daily basis.

Just as one example, no test on the Rhineland R22 has appeared in print anywhere yet, but there have been online reviews of it available right here for months, including recommended ammo, magazines, and fixes for a couple minor early issues. What book can hold a candle to that? :D

A friend who is an "industry insider" confirms your suspicions. He called it a "paid advertorial."

Makes me wonder what else inside GD has been bought and paid for.

GD used to be an excellent publication, and I eagerly looked forward to it each year. Now, I'll read it if the local library gets it, or if I can buy last year's edition at a gun show for $5 or less. How sad.
That's why I rarely buy gun magizine anymore. I used to subscribe to several. But I noticed that it seemed to increasingly be glowing articals on how great this or that new gun was. Never EVER a bad report. These magizine and books are IMO largely sales commercials that we pay to see. Not me.

Thanks Crete

I'll put in a bid and hope for the best. I don't do Ebay very much though (only once, as a matter of fact), as I've had a few friends get burned by sellers. But for this price - its worth a shot.

Thanks again.

That's not the Lachuck book I was talking about. Mine was published by Guns & Ammo magazine in 1972 or thereabouts. But I'm sure this is a good book too, Lachuck for a long time was "da man" on all things .22 and DBI was still publishing good stuff back in those days, not like now.

The Gun Digest Book of the .22 RIMFIRE by John Lachuk

It is the only one I know by him issued by GD in the 1970s. I have two of them (two editions from the same year, 1978), which are identical. The ISBN # is 0-695-81197-5 and the Library of Congress Catalog Card Number is 78-70509.

Great book on the .22 rimfire. A classic. :t

PS: I got both of mine from eBay. No prob.

EDIT to add: There is another .22 rimfire book issued in 1993 by Lachuk and Guns and Ammo. It is available here (among other gun-related magazines). It is called The Complete Book of .22 Rimfire: http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-5-American-...goryZ378QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Forgot to add above:

I tried to go to Wal-Mart and order directly at Customer Relations desk, but it was a no go - got to do it here on the net. Just in case anybody else was going to do that also - down here was a 'negatory, good buddy'.

Its' today - its today!

According to the Krause publishing site, this book by Jim House should be out for publication today. Just a reminder, in case you are interested.

No - my name isn't Jim House, and I receive no money at all for mentioning this. :p
