    Jane's Guns Recognition Guide, 2nd Edition-Product Improved?

    I was not altogether pleased or surprised at the changes/omissions in this edition of the 'Guns Recognition Guide'. What ostensibly started out as a guide to 'making safe' weapons found or confiscated by enforcement officers, now shows signs of wanting to be a poor man's 'All the World's Infantry Weapons', with attempts to keep up with the newest releases in commercial/military firearms development. Particularly unfortunate is the removal of information concerning many pre-1945 self-loading handguns from this second edition. Such weapons, purchased, imported, or smuggled throughout the world, are some of the most likely to be encountered by law enforcement and customs officers, especially in European countries. Also irritating is the change in listing the weapons. In the first edition, weapons were organised alphabetically by manufacturer/designation. In this second edition, they are organised by nationality. If you knew nothing about the weapon, would it not be handier to be able to look it up by manufacturer or designation, as they appeared on the weapon? Not all manufacturers stamp country of origin on their products..... It is also disappointing to see the continuing trend of captions misidentifying the photographed weapon (eg. pages 69 and 322). Whilst this is not life threatening in itself, it is a credibility issue. Hopefully, the trend towards including support weapons, as in this edition, will not continue to it's logical extreme. Though including anti-material rifles and heavy machineguns, whilst omitting shotguns (even just the military ones), grenade launchers, and the various easily concealed disposable anti-armor weapons, seems a little inconsistent, given the stated purpose of this guide. The publishers have the resources. They would much better achieve the book's stated aim, by focusing on the weapons most likely to be encountered, rather than those which most would not attempt to acquire.
