Trophy Room Books

Ellen & Jim Herring hunt worldwide and have talked many of the best hunters living to tell their stories in a series of excellent limited-edition books.

In their own words:
For nearly 30 years Trophy Room Books has catered to the literary tastes of international big game hunters, outdoor enthusiasts and book collectors. Our business is part antiquarian, part publishing (fine, signed limited editions) and part retailer of new big game books.

Offering a veritable treasure trove of books ranging from the priceless to the price conscious, our offerings are always the best — and that means the best reading, best condition or best edition. As America's premiere bookseller and publisher in this field, we endeavor to maintain one of the best inventories in the world. Our internationally recognized logo (the reading giraffe) is apt: Trophy Room Books is head and shoulders above the rest.

Ellen Enzler-Herring has authored the Armchair Safari series for Safari Magazine for 26 years. Both Ellen and Jim Herring are active international big game hunters, so they bring to this business knowledge of both the big game hunting community and the book reading/collecting fraternity.

A Site To Die For
Stop, You’re Killing Me! is a resource for lovers of mystery, thriller, spy, and suspense books. We list over 2000 authors, with complete chronological lists of their books (20,000+ titles), both series and non-series. Use the alphabetical author and character links above or the special indexes in the left and right columns. And it’s perfectly fine with us if you print our pages for your private use, especially for a trip to your local library or bookstore.
Ray Riling Arms Books

America's oldest mail-order arms book company. I was in high school when I started buying from them
In their words:
"When one thinks of firearms and hunting literature, one automatically thinks of Ray Riling. An ex-Army officer, an architect and building contractor with 25 years of success behind him, Ray found retirement impossible. In the 1940's Ray Riling Arms Books Co. was launched when he advertised some duplicates from his extensive personal library of arms books. Most everyone over the years agreed that his stock and service has never been equaled. Over the years Ray wrote and published over fourteen books on arms and related subjects and two of them, "The Powder Flask Book" and his bibliography on arms books, "Guns & Shooting", are both known as "truly monumental."
Joe Riling
Like his dad, Joe is also a publisher of arms books and has written two books himself. Over the years Joe has been the compiler of "The Arms Library" section for the annual edition of the "Gun Digest." Ray Riling Arms Books Co. is dedicated to the sale of arms books both old and new and we carry in stock thousands of titles that include many rarities. A yearly catalog is available upon request. In the tradition of quality and personal attention, we look forward to being of continuous service now, and for many years to come."


THE company for gunsmithing supplies - and the best source of current gunsmithing books.
In their words:
" Three generations ago Bob Brownell founded our company on three words: Selection, Service, and Satisfaction. More than sixty years later our strong foundation still rests upon those words."
