Wow, the kickstarter for his book on French Military Rifles is currently at $418,400 .
I really appreciate what Ian does and he seems like a truly genuine good person, but I rarely watch Forgotten Weapons. Frankly I’m just not that interested in old firearms, I’m more interested in innovative new stuff. I’m actually quite shocked (maybe I shouldn’t be?) that 3040 people so far want an $85 book on French Military rifles even though the book looks very detailed and beautifully put together. The Vickers Guide stuff from Larry Vickers is more my speed… I’m assuming I’m not in the minority here, which makes me think that if a book on French Military rifles can pull in almost a 1/2 million dollars with 15 days left, how much do Larry’s 1911, AR-15, and Kalashnikov books make? Man… I need to really get that Sheepdog Fan Fiction VOL 1 edited and published. I’d did some math, and if I crunched the number correctly I should be able to make at least $7M off it.
