Full Description


Drawing on 40 years of shooting experience, author David R. Henderson takes a comprehensive look at what shotguns are and what they were, and what they can and can't do and why. Henderson starts out by sketching the history of the shotgun and then clearly dissects every facet of the weapon, covering topics like: gauges; the relative drawbacks and merits of double-barrelled, pump-action and autoloaders; how to fit a gun; how to use chokes; and more. There are also descriptions of the characteristics of shotgun shot and what the hunter can expect from the varieties available, as well as advice on choosing among them. There's advice on testing the pattern of your gun, as well as tips for beginners on gun handling. Chapters include strategies for hunting white-tailed deer; wing shooting; hunting big game; waterfowl and turkey; shooting sports such as sporting clays; plus valuable practical advice on cleaning guns and reloading shotshells.
