Amazon now says the paperback is unavailable. Is there another source?

Call Looseleaf Law at (800) 647-5547
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm
Eastern Standard Time.


I just got off the phone with them and apparently someone at Amazon pushed the wrong button so instead of making it a back order item they're showing it as totally unavailable.


Thanks for asking.

The reason for all the fuss is the latest review in the August 2020 American Rifleman

Amazon Incompetence

BTW soon after the latest review the book was sold out at Amazon. Normally this is a good thing but I guess someone at Amazon pressed the wrong button and it's now showing up as unavailable as in out of print.


The smart thing, of course, would have been to continue taking orders and back ordering until they received more inventory.


My Publisher contacted them and got a lot of weaslespeak and nothing else.


Bottom line, the paperback is still very much in print and available direct from Looseleaf Law.

Good News!

Finally updated the page to take back orders. Unfortunately it's so in demand right now that they're promising deliveries in 1 to 2 months.


Fastest deliveries can still be gotten from the publisher, Looseleaf Law
