I'm drooling on my keyboard now! I keep telling myself that if I'm very good, and eat my vegetables, an affordable copy of Pioneering Handgun Hunting will find its way to me.

Pab, Not many of the younger handgun hunters know who Al Georg was.I can see by your responce that your a long-time fan of Georg. He was one of the best..
When I bought my copy a number of years ago it set me back $75. Good luck....

James, what year was this book printed? I also collect books on handgun hunting. I have of coarse all Mr. John Taffin's big bore books-awesome. Also, I'm almost through a new book..to me by Mr.Mark Hampton called Handgun Hunting- how to travel the world in pursuit of wild game. Excellet Excellent book!! If you haven't read it you just gotta!!

I believe it was published in 1965. All the copies I have found for sale are going for $200+. If you have not read any of Al Georgs writings, check out the chapter on him in the book Hunting For Handgunners by JD Jones and Larry Kelly (another great book).
