I have gotten the itch to read Unintended Consequences by John Ross. I have seen several recommendations here on arfcom. It looks like it costs amywhere from $150 - $400 on Amazon.... Is this really right?

Anyone know another place to get this book? I know there is a free PDF version floating around out there, but I would prefer to read an actual book....if possible!

Check the EE. Sometimes I have seen the book there for $100.00.

Nevermind, reading is fundamental.

Wow. When did the book get so expensive? I am pretty sure I didn't pay more than $40 shipped from Amazon several years ago.

I could be wrong but I think it was only printed once or twice. I don't think there was any paper backs printed. They are
rare.

I "acquired" this title in .pdf form and converted it to use on both my Kindle, and my Kindle app on my phone. It's out there... you just have to have the proper skill-set.

Here's the author's website, and the page where you can then be directed to purchase the book: http://www.john-ross.net/store.php

And, for the ultimately lazy person, here's the link to the publisher selling his book that is linked from the page above: http://www.accuratepress.net/ross.html


It looks like there will be another run on the book (eventually) - @ $28.95 in softcover plus S&H.

There was a post the other day that another run was going to be printed (or something to that effect)

That would be great. I'd love to give some copies out to some people.

Makes me value my signed copy that much more! Especially considering I got it signed at his rock quarry range after getting to shoot a lot of his full auto stuff!

But yeah, I would love to see a revised second edition.

They've been saying that for quite a few years now, so don't get your hopes up.
He was also working on a sequel, but Real Life got in the way.
