Amazing Resource For Firearm Manuals
Some fiction writers like Stephen Hunter, Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, C.J. Box, or Tara Janzen are very knowledgeable about firearms. Others; not so much. Not a big deal, we all have to learn and research a variety of topics for our novels and even knowledgeable authors need to look up the specifics from time to time. You might need to know how many cartridges a particular gun will hold, the rate of fire, or the muzzle velocity. Sometimes authors aren’t even sure what they want to put in their protagonist’s hands and want to “shop around” to narrow down their choices based on features or looks.
Introducing the Steves Pages website. Steve offers over 2,500 .pdf manuals for hundreds of firearms. He even has manuals for cameras, flashlights, optics, and metal detectors! It is a fabulous and FREE resource for authors looking to get some specifics about the guns they are writing about. His main page has even more materials from out-of-print books and magazines, Army field manuals, and much, much, more! If you want to add some additional details about the guns your characters are using you might want to see if he has a manual listed that can give you the information you need.
