Editor’s Pick: 2013 Standard Catalog of Firearms

At gun shows I always noticed that many shoppers and booth keepers alike kept the Gun Digest Standard Catalog of Firearms close at hand. With this tome, arguments were started and settled, prices set and haggled over, bluing and rust and rifling conditions discussed ad nauseum, and deal after deal after deal made. Indeed, Standard Catalog of Firearms held near-Bible status.
