Even if you’re not a firearms designer or gunsmith, I think this reference guide would be an invaluable resource if you’re just a huge firearms nerd. High-resolution pictures are something that even modern firearms reference books don’t have sometimes and the ability to zoom in on a lot of these high-resolution pictures is something that I think can be appreciated by everyone. In addition to the 1-year subscription option, several other options will also be available with varying levels of access and updates. What are your thoughts on this latest edition of the Firearms Guide and do you think that the $100 per year subscription might be worth it to you? Let us know down in the comments.
