    what's on your list of must have shotgunning books. So far I have "Peters and King" by Schiffer about the history of King Powder and Peters Cartridge and "Shooter" by Bob Allen (I have a personalized autographed copy that I'll forever treasure), and I have "Shotgunning: The Art and Science" by Brister on the way. On my list of "to get" is "Advanced Competition Shotgunning" by Forehand, and I need to find a new copy of "With winning in mind" by bassham, mine "disappeared" some time ago.

    You'll really enjoy Brister's book.

    I enjoyed "The Orvis Wing-Shooting Handbook" by Bruce Bowlen.

    Don't forget Rollin's booklet "Stock Fitting Secrets" while you're at it!

    I already have Rollins manual, its on its 2nd hard drive now, had a different computer when I originally purchased it, thats how long ago I bought it LOL.

    I'll add the orvis book to my list. Another one I thought of that i need to add would be road to yesterday, I always enjoyed reading the snippets from trap and field when I could come across a copy.

    Another good book is " Trapshooting is a game of Opposites " by Dick Bennett.

    Russ Elliots short tome "Your shotgun vs you"

    I dismissed it as crap initailly but read it anyways.

    He was a National Champion level shooter but explains things in an uncomplicated way. The artwork or cartoons degrade and date the appearance of the book but it is still WELL worth reading. trust me
