You're soon to get 300 replies saying it's required reading. [:D]

Good book. If you like firearms & the RKBA you will enjoy it.

As the Bible is to Christians, so is UC to the gun owner. When you finish, you will understand...[:)]

UC is nowhere near as preachy and doesn't have chapters that drag on forever. [:D]

Some people say it gets boring in some places but I was never able to find those places. It had my full attention.

I you have friends who think you are a "gun nut" loan it to them after you've read it. It is the best explination of the "gun culture" I've ever read. It answers questions they would never ask. Now if I could just get my wife to read it.[^]

Great book, read it through the first time in about two days, then reread it about six times. Finally loaned it to my uncle who better not mess it up. Definatly a great read, a good portion of history is represented in the storyline. Read it and you will understand what "it's time to feed the hogs" means. [:)]

Yup, a few years ago. Lent to to SNIPERm88 and he is now reading it. I'll re-read it again when he is done. Also read Patriots, surviving the upcomming collapse.

It took me a while to read, since it was hard to fit "reading time" into my already busy schedule at the time. It was an excellent read, and I was sad when I finished, since I'd gotten so used to reading it. I've bought a few copies as gifts, my mom has my copy now. Read it, then encourage everyone around you to read it.[:)]

Just finished it a couple weeks ago. Bought it after hearing of it on this board. Good book,the ending was a bit of fantasy, I thought. Cant imagine it turning out so well in real life. I havent read "The Black Rifle"...Anyone interested in a trade? BP
