A lifetime's experience of gunfitting and shooting bas gone. to the making of this invaluable book. Both the beginner and the accomplished shot will find it indispensable, and they cannot but study it with interest and profit.
Practically every aspect of shooting is covered-safety first, cartridges, loading, marksmanship and the right way to shoot, the shooting position, and gunmounting. Grouse, partridge, pheasant, and other game shooting are dealt with fully. It also includes chapters on plating and patterns, barrel bores and barrel lengths, re-stocking, gun-cleaning, and a great variety of other matters of vital interest to all sportsmen.

"A remarkably good book written by an expert." SHOOTING TIMES
