Product Description

Chris Kyle—fallen hero and #1 bestselling author of American Sniper—reveals how ten legendary guns forever changed U.S. history.

At the time of his tragic death in February 2013, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the top sniper in U.S. military history, was finishing one of the most exciting missions of his life: a remarkable book that retold American history through the lens of a hand-selected list of firearms. Kyle masterfully shows how guns have played a fascinating, indispensable, and often underappreciated role in our national story.

"Perhaps more than any other nation in the world," Kyle writes, "the history of the United States has been shaped by the gun. Firearms secured the first Europeans' hold on the continent, opened the frontier, helped win our independence, settled the West, kept law and order, and defeated tyranny across the world."

Drawing on his unmatched firearms knowledge and combat experience, Kyle carefully chose ten guns to help tell his story: the American long rifle, Spencer repeater, Colt .45 revolver, Winchester rifle, Springfield 1903 rifle, Thompson sub-machine gun, 1911 pistol, M1 Garand, .38 Special police revolver, and the M-16 rifle platform Kyle himself used as a SEAL. Through them, he revisits thrilling turning points in American history, including the single sniper shot that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War, the firearms designs that proved decisive at Gettysburg, the "gun that won the West," and the weapons that gave U.S. soldiers an edge in the world wars and beyond. This is also the story of how firearms innovation, creativity, and industrial genius has constantly pushed American history—and power—forward.

Filled with an unforgettable cast of characters, Chris Kyle's American Gun is a sweeping epic of bravery, adventure, invention, and sacrifice.

Product Description

The problem with talking about firearms is that people tend to be either gun nuts or they’re totally ignorant and/or scared to death of firearms. If you're a novice and try to find answers online you're soon flooded with divergent opinions, conflicting advice, and sometimes ridicule for asking such “stupid” questions. Finding answers in person, in a gun store, surrounded by firearm devotees, is even more intimidating! Who, in their right mind wants to embarrass themselves in a room full of complete strangers! This book takes those who are new to the world of firearms and explains the basics of how firearms work, the strengths and weaknesses of every major type of firearm you're likely to encounter, and in the final section, shows you how to evaluate firearm and ammunition choices. When you're finished reading this book you’ll be equipped to make an informed purchase that takes into account your budget and your needs.
