    Old Stoeger Shooter's Bible Catalogs

    These are some of my favorite to collect. So much valuable information in them.

    I got a 1972 Shooters Bible for Christmas, and spent many hours dreaming of owning all those wonderful guns, and all the classic loading gear. Still enjoy looking through it 47 years later

    Wouldn’t it be nice if those prices were the same today?

    I collected them yearly, and the Gun Digest, until just a few years ago. I've got an entire bookcase full of them. The ones you've displayed are some of the more difficult to find. The one with the goat on the cover was one of the first I acquired. Neat books, for certain. If you can get one printed during or just after WW II it's interesting to see how many guns are pictured and priced, but say "Not Available For The Duration."

    Kind of like the old Christmas catalog when you were a kid.

    So far the 1940 is the oldest edition I have. I love reading them. They are invaluable for gun sight research.
