"I've been fortunate to know John Hinnant for many years and it's no surprise that his book is so effective. He has, after all,
just retired from a lifetime of riflesmithing, machining and teaching industrial arts. Growing up in Texas (west of the Pecos) in
the '40s and '50s, John had an early interest in firearms and machining processes. These interests remained throughout his
life as he taught both to students lucky enough to be enrolled in out of his classes."
