    Suspect this'll be one to keep an eye out for, at least if he writes as lucidly as he presents.
    Gun Jesus Ian McCollum, of Forgotten Weapons fame, has written a book covering French Military Rifles from 1866 to the present day. Still finishing artwork etc., but think I may be buying that when it's done:

    I watch Ian's newest vid with my first cup of coffee each morning. Few people can speak so intelligently and dispassionately about a wide range of guns. He's the new Ian Hogg.

    I love Ian. How can you not like a hippie who's also into firearms?

    He's also one of the few people I know of who genuinely likes French weapons and gives them the attention they deserve. Even John Weeks' fine Ballantine volume about WWII small arms dismisses French rifles with a few jocose comments.
