Still have never seen a book I would spend $600 on. $100 was bad enough in college.

Top notch print......top shelf price. Think of how many good bottles of Scotch can you get for that price!

I absolutely love JIB- especially those from the early-mid 1980's!
Yes, the older books included much better text info sections. From what I have seen the newer ones look like brochures and the cost is quite high.

I am a happy owner of a 1986-87 Jane´s Infantry Weapons book, which was gifted to me.

$680 book???

I have a couple older additions of the Janes. I'd have to at least spit on "it" first before giving it to someone for that price... Sure is a good lookin' cover though!

That's GOT to be a typo. $680? For a BOOK?

Oh, wait. I just read the fine print. I think it may come with one of the weapons on the front page as a free gift.

I'll take mine with the MP7.

Nope, I guess it's not a typo. But that is last year's edition. The 2007-2008 edition is $760, and has some AR looking rifle on the cover.

cool.......but thats one spendy book!

Oh come on Landpimp, "Janes,' " is such a great, no nonsense book, about all the complete fire arms on the market! As well as other things, regarding weaponry!! They are the UT-most authority, on this type of publication!!

You can afford it!! Just have your girlfriend pick one up for Christmas, for you!!! Happy Holiday's!! :D TJ

But $760? For a book? Who buys that?

But it sounds like maybe you already have one. Can I borrow your copy? :)
