BB Guns Remembered is a nostalgic journey to the past, seen through the eyes of little boys whose BB guns were a key part of their lives. Journey back to your youth with these boys of adventure, and let them guide you through danger, quests, hope and intrigue. The stories will sound familiar because they touch on the values of all people: young and old. As told by Tom Gaylord.
The Wind Gun of Prostl is a fictional account of the invention of an airgun in the early 18th century. While the characters, places and events in the story are all made up, the gun described does exist. The author watched a modern airgun maker struggle to understand what was done in 1730 to invent and then create this marvelous airgun.
Every fictional story in this book is based on an event that happened in the author's life. But they will seem familiar to most people, because the human condition is common to all.

Things I liked: This book takes me back to my childhood. 1950's and 60's. I started with a Daisy BB gun. A few years later I work all year long to save my coins. Doing mostly odd jobs, mowing lawns etc. I finally saved up $19.95 for a brand new Benjaimin pump up gun. Boy did I have a lot of fun with that Benjamin. I left for the army in the late 60's. My parents sold the house when I was away. I never saw my Bengi again. The book was well written. It will take you back to fond memories and the good times of your youth. Buy it. Chinaspringer
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This book is full of short stories. Fun and a pleasure to read. I hope Tom writes another one.
Things I liked: Great writing style. I could see in my minds eye exactly what was being described.
Things I would have changed: I would have liked more details on the BB rifles mentioned in the short stories.
What others should know: This book is not so much about BB rifles as it is about short stories where a BB rifle plays a central point in each short story.
Things I liked: A page turner! This book is a fun, intelligent journey through time, each photograph a portal into memories described in a way that makes them your own. Tom Gaylord is a talented author.
Things I would have changed: I would change you not having this book!
What others should know: I did the illustrations for the last chapter in this book and, while every artist critics their own the hardest, I can say that the book is absolutely a must own for airgunners. There has never been anything like this and you'll be glad to have a copy. My copy will be treasured.

Did Edith Gaylord perform any editing duties on this book before her death? She was such a good editor! Regardless, I know there are things in this book that will remind me of her, even if she did not help Tom with its creation.
Not sure, might want to ask over on the blog where Tom can answer directly.
How many pages and can I get it autographed?
