About this title

Synopsis:

Shotguns have a long, rich history in the United States. They were used by both Union and Confederate cavalrymen during the Civil War, and helped defend the Alamo during the Mexican-American War. Soldiers during WWI preferred shotguns for trench warfare, and many heroes of the Wild West were rarely seen without their double-barrels. Today, shotguns are used by target sports enthusiasts, law enforcement, and armed forces. Discover the fascinating history of the shotgun in this wide-ranging new book. Shotguns explores the exciting history and development of the shotgun with engaging text and more than 200 full-color photographs of guns, including iconic models by Winchester. Best used for hitting smaller targets at closer range, shotguns became the weapon of choice for soldiers, hunters, and sportsmen. Learn about key innovations, including double-barrels, interchangeable chokes, and subguage inserts. Learn about different shotgun mechanisms, including breech-loading, double-barrel, pump-action, bolt-action, semi-automatic, and fully automatic weapons.
