It utilizes primary sources such as period newspapers, US census reports, and city directories, along with secondary sources, such as Dr Mackintosh's unpublished list and Mr Bivins' published research. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to arms making, apprenticeships, the need for arms among the militias, especially in the period before 1800, and the various secondary trades practised by gunsmiths.
