    I've had the hard cover for decades. Gave my dad a copy for his birthday when he was alive - one of the few books on guns he read. For the most part this is a combination of a good reference and yet readable for some of the stories he tells and historical facts too.

    When reading various online and magazine articles about guns, I sometimes wish some authors had read Hatcher' Notebook (among other authoritative works by real experts, not self-proclaimed ones) so they would have a better foundation in their knowledge of firearms instead of just repeating the nonsense they heard from other "experts".

    I forget what I did with my father's copy - I think I gave it to one of my brothers or my son in law.

    It is nice to have a searchable copy too.

    I bought a copy in Apr of '81. I sometimes write the purchase date in my books. This was one of those times. I read it cover to cover back in the day. A wonderfully interesting book from a man who was there. More hard accurate facts than you usually see. Highly recommended if you are interested in military rifles of ww1 & 2.

    This has excellent info on the low serial number Springfield's that he researched for the Military.
