The sportsman's complete guide to choosing and using shotguns
The shotgun in unsurpassed as a sporting tool and it has enjoyed a long and storied history in the hands of hunters and marksmen around the world. Yet, the novice shooter is often overwhelmed by the choices he faces when selecting the right gun for his favorite activities: Which gauge is best? Should they shoot an over-under, side-by-side, autoloader or pump? What about chokes? And is lead or nontoxic shot better - and in what sizes?
Fortunately, Layne Simpson has a lifetime of shotgunning experience to share with you and his sage advice will help answer all these questions and many more. Part technical guide, part loving tribute, this book will make you look at shotguns in a totally different light.
Above all, the shotgun is the centerpiece of all stories about wonderful days spent in the field...of North Woods' logging trails and ruffed grouse exploding into golden-tinged woodlands...of foggy mornings in a duck blind shared with good friends, a trusty 10 gauge and your favorite retriever...of corn fields, cold wind and the cook pheasant's crackly as you insticvively shoulder your favorite autoloader...this is the shotgunner's world.
