    Elmer did more to promote handgun hunting and handgun shooting then anyone . Mr Keith and Jeff Copper should be in the handguners hall of fame .

    I have one that is for sale --- in 1984 Wolfe Publishing made printed up a run of various classic old gun books (1500 sets) and they were sold as subscriptions to the set. These books are really high quality hardcovers with gold leaf edges, ribbon markers, etc.

    The one by Elmer Keith is "Big Game Rifles and Cartridges". It is brand new and still in the original shipping box.

    If anyone is interested, I also still have two others from the series for sale-----"The Hunting Rifle" by Townsend Whelen and also "Practical dope on the Big Bores" by Ness. These books are also brand new and in the original boxes.

    Will sell them for $35.00 each and I will pay shipping in the lower 48. I will list my e-mail address above in the box.

    xxx NOTE---These three books are sold pending payment. Thanks for the interest, Gregg

    A search on E-bay for "Elmer Keith" had 18 results, mostly his books.
