When it comes to writing weapons, most authors shoot from the hip--and miss. The Writer's Guide to Weapons will help you hit your target every time. Firearms and knives have starring roles in a wide range of genres--crime, thriller, war, mystery, Western, and more. Unfortunately, many depictions of weapons in novels and film are pure fiction. Knowing the difference between a shotshell and a slug, a pistol and a revolver, or a switchblade and a butterfly knife is essential for imbuing your story with authenticity--and gaining popularity with discerning readers. Inside you'll find: • An in-depth look at the basics of firearms and knives: how they work, why they work, what they look like, and how to depict them accurately in your stories. • The biggest weapons myths in fiction, TV, and film. • A surefire guide for choosing the correct weapon for your characters, no matter their skill level, strength, or background. • A review of major gun and knife laws, weapons safety tips,and common police tactics. • "The Hit List," showcasing the most popular weapons for spies, detectives, gunslingers, gangsters, military characters, and more. • Examples highlighting inaccurate vs. accurate weapons depictions. • An insightful foreword by David Morrell, the award-winning creator of Rambo. Equal parts accessible, humorous, and practical, The Writer's Guide to Weapons is the one resource you need to incorporate firearms and knives into your fiction like a seasoned professional.

Firearms made since 1900 are far more numerous than those made before 1900. Many of these post-1900 firearms are found at auctions, arms retailers, in advertisements, and as 'young' family heirlooms. Much more affordable and plentiful than pre-1900 collector-grade arms, many of these post-1900 guns are increasingly viewed as collectible, valuable assets. This all-new expanded edition helps collectors identify firearms, evaluate conditions, and determine values. Detailed specifications and current values from specialized experts are provided for domestic and imported handguns, rifles, shotguns, and commemorative firearms. Heavily illustrated with more than 8,000 arms, each listing includes descriptions and values in three grades of condition, according to the NRA's "Modern" standards. A new 8-page color section hosts many popular arms.
