Unintended Consequences by John Ross

In my opinion, this is a book that needs to be read (and re-read) by every gun owner in the country...but I digress - I've been looking for some copies to use as gifts and loaners for some friends. I'm astounded...the cheapest copies I find are $60.00, with the high end falling between $600.00 and $800.00. I can't help but wonder what my first edition, signed by the author copy would be worth (probably not so much since it's pretty well-read)... On the upside, I find that Accurate Press is planning on publishing a soft cover edition that will be selling in the $30.00 range...

    Very good book well worth the read! I have two hard cover versions of it.

    I would consider it a personal favor if you could let us know when you see the soft cover is available.
    Thanks

    I have a hard cover copy. I've loaned it to possibly 2 dozen people. If anyone is interested in borrowing it, let me know.
    The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

    Thank you. i want one, plus i want some extras to loan out. Especially to my liberal friends.

    I've searched for it on line and as you say it's $60 for a VERY used copy and the price goes up from there.

    Put me in line... sounds like a great read. I can't find it for less than $120 used through Amazon.

    I think I may have to get a hold of Accurate Press and tell them the time for breaking out the reprints is "NOW MORE THAN EVER!". I bought my own hardcover a few years back and would gladly buy a couple paperpacks to have as loaners. Like Jay says, it's a must read.

    I was going to ask how he would like me to handle that. He may want it back to ensure its being taken care of, but I'll do whatever he wishes.

    100% understand and totally agree sir.

    I found my copy at a yard sale about ten years ago. I think I paid $1 for it. It doesn't have a dust cover and it has been passed around A LOT. It is just a book. It is supposed to be read and re-read.

    Now that I have an e-copy (thanks Alpha) I'm not worried about it.

    You guys pass it around all you want.

    Hey thanks Alpha. :beer: I just saved a copy.

    Obviously not as good as paper and ink but way better than nothing.
    That's all I got.
