Books of 2010: To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Tell the Truth

A while back I ordered Jeff Cooper’s “To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Tell the Truth” off Amazon because I wanted to read something by the good Colonel. This one seemed like it would be a good place to start (though I have also heard many good things about his other books), so away I went. In it, he has stories about guns, hunting (mainly in Africa), defense, even one about the ocean liners of the pre-WWII era. It is very enjoyable, interesting, and readable. And now I am more than slightly infatuated with the “Scout Rifle” concept…

So, if you have any interest good old fashioned war and hunting stories with a bunch of gun lore thrown in the mix for good measure, I recommend this book. I rate it at 9.5/10, just because it is pretty short.
