Hannah Swensen #8: Cherry Cheesecake Murder – Book Review
Video / March 30, 2020

A review for the 8th Hannah Swensen book, where a movie is being filmed in town. Practically everyone gets a job with the movie, and the director is killed when a prop gun is swapped for a real gun. More importantly, Hannah’s two boyfriends proposed to her at the same time. She decides not to marry either one, because she’d rather keep dating them both at the same time. Hannah is making it really hard for readers to support her, with this decision. She spends most of the book half-dating a third man, Ross Barton. My score for this book is a 3 out of 10.

We Americans have a tendency to only consider that old West as much as northern Montana and Idaho, however things weren’t much different on the other hand from the border in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Yukon, and yet another western provinces. Beginning using their founding in 1873, police force in western Canada was the domain from the RNWMP, plus they used a fascinating combination of British Empire arms and American arms – Colts and Adams Winchesters and Sniders. “Arms and Accoutrements from the Mounted Police, 1873-1973” covers the entire range or arms and accessories utilized by the Mounties. Handguns, rifles, shotguns, machine guns, swords, lances, as well as artillery (yes, they’d some artillery). A great book for just about any Canadian collector, and very worthwhile throughout us too – a window right into a police agency we do not frequently consider. It is usually from print, but at this moment still available for $35 at JoeSalter.com: https://world wide web.joesalter.com/category/products/Arms-and-Accoutrements-of-the-Mounted-Police-Softcover Contact: Forgotten Weapons…

Book Review: The Ross Rifle Story
Video / September 8, 2019

http://world wide web.patreon.com/ForgottenWeapons Awesome Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.bbtv.com/collections/forgotten-weapons “The Ross Rifle Story” may be the Bible of Ross rifle collecting – it’s the only substantial reference work about them and contains a significant quantity of details about the introduction of the Ross. However, it’s also among the worst-edited firearms reference books I know of. It features a second Table of Contents on-page 85 – need I only say in addition to that? Well, I’ll. The pictures are black and white-colored and frequently darker and uneven or too light. Beyond it truly being two separate manuscripts printed consecutive, the business is actually missing. Finding information within the book may also be very hard, as the topic jumps around a great deal. The storyline from the Ross – especially separating the civilian and military development – is a nice complicated one, or even a well-edited book about them may well be a bit hard to parse. This book is actually bad at occasions. However for everything, it *does* possess the information (with simply a couple of errors), and it is the only real book that does. If you are looking at the Ross, this can be a must-have book despite its problems….
