For all of you fans of the Browning .50 caliber guns, this is a well illustrated volume that covers the .50 caliber aircraft guns as well as .50 caliber anti-aircraft guns. Fantastic images of the […]

Pulling the trigger on the M1911 .45 Caliber Pistol Book

This has been the most difficult book I have ever attempted to produce. There are many reasons why, and there have also been an incredible amount of delays and inconveniences that have kept this book from getting finished. I am happy to announce that this book is finally with the printer and should hopefully be […]

World War II Ordnance Illustrated Issue 9

Did someone mention Issue 9? But Tom, Issue 8 isn’t even for sale yet, so how could this be possible? Are you in fact working on producing two issues within two months?

New tin signs: M1911 pistol and a new M1 Garand sign

These signs are on their way. Unfortunately it always takes longer to have them produced and shipped than what I would like.
