The first time I ever saw Elmer Keith was when the NRA Convention was .

The first time I ever saw Elmer Keith was when the NRA Convention was held in San Diego. I was stationed at Camp Pendleton, so that was probably 1975. Elmer was at one end of the Petersen Publishing booth, Jack O'Connor at the other. Jack could be stand-offish in a crowd and looked like the college professor he once was - a little bit uncomfortable. By the time I had the, er, pleasure of turning his raw copy into magazine articles, age probably didn't help much (he was 80 by then). The spelling wasn't bad at all, but a Keith manuscript was full of run-together words and occasional missing letters - our theory was that his typewriter had some malfunctioning keys.

I have been lucky to find a used edition of "Hell, I Was There!", and now of "Gun Notes". Getting a chance to catch up on the columns Keith wrote long before I started reading gun mags is invaluable. Some of which another 30 plus years of hunting, shooting, and repairing, selling, and replacing firearms has taught. Some of which is proven incorrect, with modern testing and technology, but all of which makes for good reading. His experience was invaluable. We are lucky he was also a gunwriter and shared so much of his knowledge and experience.

Excellent

100% Elmer Keith. Just like I had hoped. Elmer had one heck of a life and I'm glad he wrote about most of it.
Thohelm
priceless book (1 of 2) for the gun crank provides unique perspective and information that can be found now where else.
Pemand
a lot of great stories and usfull info on reloading, shooting, and hunting from some one that has done it all

Keith, cowboy, lawman, big-game hunter, world-class
marksman and gun expert, wrote the long-running
column in Guns & Ammo magazine upon which this
book is based.

Ornery, opinionated, and thoroughly knowledgable
on his subject, Keith writes about ballistics,
hunting, hand-loading, and accuracy in shotguns,
rifles, and handguns, always clearly and cogently,
and never leaving the reader unsure of where the
writer stands.

Keith is always interesting, and most of his work
is relevant today, but the publisher of this
compilation takes pains to warn the reader that
some of Keith's data is unscientific and suspect,
and must not be relied on uncritically, especially
with respect to bullet velocities and chamber
pressures.

Keith was nothing if not a straight shooter; with guns and with his writing. He told it like it was in his gun articles, unlike the common modern situation, where the writers seem to follow the advertising dollars, and no reviewed new gun is anything but great.

Good gun read.
Keith's Gun Notes are a good read for anyone who has read any of his other writings. Newer cartridges, guns and reloading equipment are available now but his advise and opinions on most things concerning shooting still right on target.
