I made a stop at a nearby Goodwill store looking for reading material and spotted it in a bunch of cooking books. Earlier I thumbed through it and was surprised by how many pistol and revolver makers were on display that I'm not familiar with. If you happen to have an oddball on your hands and wonder if it might possibly be listed in this hefty catalog, let me know and I'll see what I can find. In fact I saw some models listed from manufacturers that I am familiar with, but I had never heard of before or models I never realized were made in certain calibers. An interesting $3 item for my gun book shelf!

When I worked in a gun shop years ago the owner kept a number of older gun books like that around. They were a very helpful resource for information about older guns that people would bring in to trade for something new. Especially those old store brand guns, Sears, Montgomery Wards, Western Auto, etc. It helped to find out who actually made them if we needed to find parts to fix it.
Believe it or not, Google doesn't have all the answers.
