I was sent a copy overnight by the publisher, looks real nice, and lots of pages (500). Nick will post it in the book section of the website, for more info go there. Website Page I currently DO NOT have any to sell. I expect them to arrive in a week or so.

The purpose of this post is:
If you are attending the TCA shoot in August and want a copy let me know via email. I don't want to haul anymore books there than I have to as there will be no displays or tables. So if you want a copy of the book please get on the list by emailing me! Email: f.iannamico@comcast.net

If you wish to pay in advance thats fine $29.95 via PAYPAL (NO shipping if you are picking up your copy at the TCA meet.)

I will be taking orders here on the website when they get here.
Price is $29.95 plus $6.95 shipping. (I cannot Priority Mail flat rate these, too big)

This book promises to be another great one from you Frank, I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I do wonder about the left handed M11 on the cover though...No ejection port on the right hand side! A prototype?

Am I reading the lists wrong?

Looks like the WWII and Post-WWII weapons listings are somewhat reversed.
