Several interesting works by Barry Storm with no relationship to the Lost Dutchman theme.
- Practical Pistoleering: a manual of practical revolver shooting techniques. Aguila: Southwestern Press, 1943. Small pamphlet, vi, 41 pages, with photographs. Very rare. From the Preface: "When we asked Barry Storm to write this small manual we knew that he would write from experience. We knew that in many years as a writer-adventurer and exploration engineer he had mastered practical pistoleering thoroughly through sheer necessity. For on the frontiers where he has lived and is still living an exciting life his ability to get meat for the pot, to beat a gunman to the draw was the only sort of life insurance - and shooting - that counted... We told him to give you the basic secrets, the tricks - in short the how-to of practical pistoleering. Handgunners, here it is!"
