A MUST HAVE book for machinists, gunsmiths and shooters! If you’ve ever read any of Lucian Cary’s J.M. Pyne stories*, you’ll want this book! It’s sure to become a classic and a collector’s item. Wholesome and heart-warming, ripe with the fragrance of gunpowder and cutting oil, these stories combine humor, suspense, insights into human nature, and a certain amount of shop wisdom. They sprang from the pen of master story teller Lucian Cary more than 60 years ago, in part as a direct reflection of his long friendship with legendary rifle barrel maker Harry Pope. You will read and re-read them all, with fresh enjoyment each time. Also included are several other of Cary’s equally entertaining, instructive and uplifting stories and articles.
Also makes a perfect gift for your favorite gunsmith, or shooting pal.
NOTE: My stock of this book is running low. It is extremely unlikely that I
will re-print this title, so if you want a copy, don't put off ordering it.
