    No book is complete without a chapter on how to select the best 11" AR, homemade suppressor, and .22 conversion kit. Perhaps if Boston had added that, he would be selling books by the wheelbarrow-load.

    A reasonable person could surmize that you are transferring your hatred for this, uh, um... gentleman that allegedly failed to pay you for your holster product onto the author whose book he publishes.

    Besides, a poodle shooter set up like David Tubbs should win the 1000 meter, but has failed to most of the time, losing to the humble .308 round. Ummmm.. have you ever heard of this thing they call science? Kinetic energy and all that????

    Just checking...

    Wow! Where do I start on an ignorant rant like the one above.
    As stated in his book, Mr. Royce says that these are his OPINIONS based upon his personal testing of the weapons involved. Nothing more, nothing less. However, I believe he has done FAR MORE actual study and shooting of these weapons than you have, bbgun. Therefore, I would believe his words over yours.
    Second, I really can't believe you said "ball ammo sucks in all calibers,...". Really? Tell that to the thousands of Germans, Japanese, Koreans and Vietnamese that were killed by .45. .30-06, .308 and .223 ball ammo in the wars.
    Last but not least you bring up the tired old '.223 vs. .308 debate. Please! - Let me ask you this though: You have one shot from a rifle to stop an aggressor. What do you choose to make sure he goes down? A .223? I think not. Why do you think the soldiers in Iraq are begging the military to provide them with more M1As? That's right. The .223 just doesn't do the job, especially at distance.
    Since you just recently joined this board I can't yet decide whether you are a troll or not. Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion, even ridiculous ones like yours. have a nice day.

    bbgun is a troll.

    He joined the forum today, June 30.

    All 29 or 30 of his posts thus far have been just as charming as this one, and all 29 or 30 of them have been posted today, June 30, 2005.

    Thirty posts, full of attitude, all on one day?

    If that ain't troll, then what is?

    Well; I just got done reading Boston's book(s) and I have learned quite abit, but like any other book or author you might have an issue with an item or two due to your expertise.

    With two ears and two eyes, you will learn alot more than with one mouth. Good luck BB, one day you'll be a pelletgun.

    hillbilly, you are talking about an internet legend. We're not worthy. He's as entertaining in his predictability as he is energetic.

    I would characterize BGB as a 800 pages of marginal information interspersed with repeated political rants. What he lacks in accuracy and precision, he makes up for in volume.

    It is not hard to find technical inaccuracies, and he glosses over some options in an almost embarassing way revealing that he promotes basically the optics that he's tried (for example, the most used magnified optic in the US Military gets less attention than IOR). The political ranting gets old for anyone who has participated or lurked in the same debates we've had here, on TFL, and AR15.com for the last 5+ years.

    For what good information is in there, it ought to be presented in a pamphlet: A Quick Guide to Getting Armed with the basic premise: get armed with reliable weapons and get trained.

    With the excellent information available on the web for free (e.g. the Ammo Oracle, the AR15 Optics FAQ, etc), I see the BGB's form as obsolete.

    I don't agree with Mr. Party's advice to buy a .40 Glock and basically forget every other pistol.
    I more or less agree with everything else he says related to firearms but the last few chapters of ranting about Government makes for some slow if rather entertaining reading.
    The book is worth having because everybody will find something in this book that they will more or less agree with and find comfort in, hence the name "Bible".
    Personally, I would recommend a Glock or H&K USP in 9mm first and .45 acp second, forget the .40 short and weak.
    As for a rifle, and one rifle only, I suggest an H&K 91 or PTR91 in .308.

    Tim Mullins, Boston T. Party's doppleganger, thinks a detachable box magazine bolt action in .308 is the ultimate cat's backside for a one and only one rifle.

    Opinions are like bosses, and, well, a certain anatomical location. We all have one.
    Boston is entitled to his, and entitled to publish. I am just as intitled to take his posturings with a grain of salt.

    Don't worry, he's no longer with us in his present incarnation. Methinks it's about time I had a word with a few former Marines I know out Colorado way, and suggest a punitive expedition to his house... although since he hasn't learned from anything else, I doubt if pain would teach him anything anyway! :fire:

    Bostons Gun Bible.
    I found much of the information to be useful. Though I too am of the opinion that Boston is heavily biased in favor of a 40 S&W Glock.

    But to each their own...

    So, Onmilo, are you saying that this Tea Party person is TJ?

    Personally, I think those books are targeted at the sizable paranoid fringe. I'd pay far more attention to gun writers such as Jeff Cooper...
