"There are perhaps half a dozen books that every serious shooter must have. This is one of them."--David E. Petzal, deputy editor, Field & Stream—
"In 1972, I wrote a book called The .22 Rifle that was a modest, bare-bones guide for kids and new shooters. If my little volume was a dish of plain vanilla, Wayne van Zwoll's new .22 book is a 7,500-calorie banana split. "--David E. Petzal, deputy editor, Field & Stream
