Here's what readers have to say about Elliott on Airguns:

"GIVE ME A BREAK!!! THIS IS A STEAL!!! Jock Elliot brought me back several years to a time when journalism was keen. Gentlemen, if you have not read this compendium of airgun knowledge, yet, you are deprived of the best in airgun journalism EVER!!! Thanks, Jock!!! I robbed you! The price is WAY too low for the content, my friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for GREAT airgun journalism! Jock Rocks!" -- Ric

"I've had the pleasure of reading an advance copy for a couple days now and... ...happily note that, in these 30 articles, Jock breezes through pretty much an overview of the entire history (including pre-history actually) of the technology of the airgun: from lung-power through the origins of the Daisy to contemporary PCP. I think my favorites are the articles on 'low-power tack-drivers.' Each article is written in Jock's easy-to-read style and the whole Adobe-formatted collection is pure plug-and-play. A real "page-turner!" (Well - virtually ). Highly recommended." -- Steve in NC

"This is a nice introduction for friends and other folks who may be interested or interestable in airgunnery. It won't answer detailed questions, but it wasn't designed to do that. It's a series of articles Mr. Elliott wrote for the two premier English language technical journals on shooting. The readership of those two books collectively is as expert and as picky as any on earth. The articles are plenty interesting for folks who already know about airguns, but they assume only the ability to understand simple technical description and little background knowledge, so they are ideal for novices. I've sent discs to folks who would be caught by the bug if they knew these things existed. If you don't know Jock's work, I must say that he is knowledgeable, has an enjoyably readable and straightforward writing style, and is possessed of an abiding fascination with aerohoplology that shows contagiously in these little pieces. Get one for yourself. Get one for your powdershooting friends. Get one for anybody who likes guns and technology, especially if he or she is limited in shooting by urbanization. They'd be bargains at twice their price." -- D.N.K. in Colorado
