Hardback in very good condition. Illustrated with lots of photographs, drawings and diagrams. The dust cover is intact and shows some light wear on the front and back. The inside pages have no rips, tears or stains and some very light brown fading on the page edges. An excellent book by the legendary Jack O’Connor that traces the history of shoulder arms from the unwieldy midget cannon to through the Kentucky rifle and the breech loading systems that replaced them. This book discusses in full detail American and foreign sporting rifles and covers the cartridge, the types and actions of big game rifles, barrels, stocks and sights. Also includes valuable information on windage, sighting and trajectory and advice on the best rifles and cartridges for hunting in mountains, woods and plains. The book also covers shotguns with chapters on actions, stocks, barrels, chokes, and shells. The author also talks about how to choose shot size, how to fit the new shotgun and covers techniques for aiming and clays shooting. Another unique aspect in this book is a illustrated Seven-Lesson Course on rifle shooting that covers all of the fundamentals of good shooting.
