With this volume Patti Carr Black, former director of the Old Capitol Museum in Jackson, has produced a much-needed work and brings together previous research with a vast amount of new information. Copublished by the Mississippi Historical Society, the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, and the University Press of Mississippi, this elegant and comprehensive volume is the first of the Society's Heritage of Mississippi Series. Black has brought to the task a perspective on Mississippi art that was informed by a lifetime's dedication to art, years of curating museum exhibitions of Mississippi artists, and, specifically for this volume, three years of intensive research in museums and private collections around the country. In Art in Mississippi she focuses on several hundred significant artists and showcases in full color the work of more than two hundred. Nationally acclaimed native Mississippians are here-George Ohr, Walter Anderson, Marie Hull, Theora Hamblett, William Dunlap, Sam Gilliam, William Hollings-worth, Jr., Karl Wolfe, Mildred Nungester Wolfe, John McCrady, Ed McGowin, James Seawright, and many others. Prominent artists who lived or worked in the state for a significant period of time are included as well-John James Audubon, Louis Comfort Tiffany, George Caleb Bingham, William Aiken Walker, and more. There are many surprises here, for Black has gathered so much remarkable art that readers will be staggered by the richness of the visual art tradition in Mississippi. Black explores how art reflects the land and how modes of living and values dictated by Mississippi's changing topography created a variety of art forms. She demonstrates the influence of Mississippi's diverse cultures upon the art and shows how it has responded in many forms-painting, architecture, sculpture, fine crafts-to the changing aesthetics of national art movements. She observes that much art was created to fill immediate needs of the times-reverent depictions of the Civil War, highly wrought expressions of the intensely devout, and works of social realism that grappled with a changing society. Those who have long been fascinated by the magnificent literature and music produced by this southern state will encounter yet another treasure trove in Art in Mississippi, 1720-1980. Students of Mississippi's phenomenal cultural history will be captivated by this splendid volume. Patti Carr Black has written and edited many books, including Agnes Grinstead Anderson's Approaching the Magic Hour: Memories of Walter Anderson, Made by Hand: Mississippi Folk Art, and Sea, Earth, Sky: The Art of Walter Anderson.

Firearms are machines, and like all machines they sometimes break. Regardless of its quality, there will be wear when the firearm is subjected to hard use. Serious shooters must learn to maintain, repair, and in some cases modify their firearms to keep them operational. Most shooters are fair part-replacers, but custom gunsmithing is another matter. We have to know know limitations, but there are times when all of us have do the repairs ourselves. Think of commando gunsmithing as isolating the problem with a firearm and curing it or, at least, applying a temporary expedient. We gun owners should be able to handle what we can and save the professional gunsmith for more complicated work. Commando Gunsmithing will teach you what to look for, as well as what to do and under what circumstances. It includes simple instructions for the most common handgun, rifle, and shotgun malfunctions, including ammo-related problems, springs, magazines, grips, sights, and bolts. It also includes a primer on proper cleaning and regular maintenance procedures, a list of spare parts and tools to keep in your ready bag, and resources to find the most reliable and affordable parts. Finding the problem and fixing it usually is neither art nor science, but rather hard work. With proper tools, education, and attitude, the commando gunsmith will always be well armed with a firearm he can count on.

It is written in a clear, no-nonsense style based on many years of practical experience and follows the maxim that although theories are of inteest, it is only real results that count.

Bill Calfee has been working with guns since the 1970’s and decided to focus on the 22 rimfire beginning in the 1980’s. Since the 1980’s Bill has had many ideas on how to improve the accuracy of the 22 rimfire, some ideas have increased the accuracy potential tremendously and some ideas proved out to be learning experiences for future ideas. Since about 2001 Bill has tried to capture his ideas, experiments, testing, and conclusions by writing about them. He has written about the successes that increased accuracy as well as the ideas that didn’t improve accuracy. Although Bill is not a writer, he felt compelled to pass along the knowledge that he has obtained in the spirit of improving the accuracy of the 22 rimfire benchrest guns for everyone that has like goals.

He goes into detail about each aspect of rimfire accuracy discussing all of the components and their contribution to the improved accuracy.

A HOT TEMPER AND A COOL HAND No one within fifty miles of Whiskey Crossing, Texas, could match Carp Varner’s skill with a sidearm. No one could match his murderous temper either. But when his half-cocked bid for mayor yielded only one vote in his favor—having voted for himself—his fury razed the tiny town to the ground in a blaze of flames and hot lead. Showing up in Apache Springs to offer his services as a gunsmith, Varner even gets on the good side of Sheriff Cotton Burke. But when Burke learns of Varner’s true nature—and past crimes—he unleashes an inferno of his own to see justice done.
