xi, 198 pp. In red cloth in black slipcase, with decorative endpapers, and silk ribbon marker. One of a limited edition of 500 copies. An unused copy. Robert Braden and Cyril Adams have been shooting fine English shotguns for decades all over the world. They are unashamed in their preference for an English-made shotgun over all other makes. In this book they give the best description ever of the process of making a best grade English gun from a lump of steel and a walnut tree trunk to the ultimate product: the lock, the stock, and the barrel. Never before has this production process been described so well and with such clarity. It will give the reader a total understanding of what goes into such a gun and why they are so expensive. The second section of the book gives the most practical advice on consistent field shooting with a double shotgun. In addition, they give practical advice on choke, shot pattern, shooting distance, and other technical aspects. A superb shotgun and shooting book that is a must for all that own and shoot such a weapon. Foreword by Bob Brister. This is Volume 4 in the Sporting Firearms Series. Bookseller Inventory #
