As some readers may be aware, I am a big fan of the Gun Digest, a great gun book that has been produced annually since 1944.
Dozens of other famous firearms would never have existed were it not for Browning. He was the most prolific and innovative gun designer during the early years of what we know as the modern-day firearm.
Somehow or another, Jerry Lee and his predecessors in the editor's chair at Gun Digest perform what amounts to an annual miracle.
The lever-action rifle is as American as baseball, hot dogs and apple pie.
My editor of several years past is Jerry Lee, a guy who is equally adept with a gun as he is with the editorial blue pencil.
