"I have been privileged to witness this book in its final stages of development and initial release to the Kentucky Rifle Association. Dave Hansen has accomplished a remarkable marketing effort by addressing three distinct interest groups with his approach to this monumental photo essay. Each group is treated equally; The Collector, whether new to the passion or advanced, The Contemporary Artisan, whether a beginner or master of the craft and last but not least those individuals in the Arts and Antique world who appreciate and study early American functional art. This book is very impressive." Henry Bishop
