In an information age clogged by so much electronic flotsam and jetsam, the emergence of Alabama publisher Palladium Press, on mission to re-release archivally printed, heirloom-quality editions of classic works on traditional American values and skills, stands as a beacon of reassurance to students of the gun and those who cherish the Second Amendment.

A half-dozen of the best examples include: The Experts’ Guide To Handgun Marksmanship and The Experts’ Guide To Rifle & Handgun Marksmanship compiled by Jim Casada; The American Freedoms Primer by Palladium Chairman and attorney Les Adams; Advanced Gunsmithing by W.F. Vickery; A Rifleman Went To War by Herbert W. McBride; and Hatcher’s Notebook by famed American Rifleman Technical Editor and U.S. Army Ordnance small arms chief Maj. Gen. Julian S. Hatcher. The first two are compilations of excerpts from works by such notables as Charles Askins,Jeff Cooper and Jack O’Connor.

Adams’ assemblage of writings, from the Magna Carta to Thoreau to Lincoln to the Constitution, lay the foundation for American liberties. Vickery’s gunsmithing solutions, although from 1939, are as applicable today as ever. And McBride’s personal narrative of his time as a captain in the 21st Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, during the Great War chronicles his use of various pieces of sniping equipment, riflery in general, and the new approaches to warfare that were developing at that time. Of course Hatcher’s Notebook has long been considered the bible of military small arms history and ballistic formulas and examines everything from “The Strength of Military Rifles” to “Cartridge Dimensions” and “Identification Tables.”

Palladium has done the modern reader a service by preserving these great writings on the shooting arts and on foundational American values. Contact: Palladium Press, 2120 16th Ave. S., Suite 100, Birmingham, AL 35205; (888) 397-3377; palladiumpress.com
