The classic shotgun reference from one of the top experts in the field.In this near-legendary handbook, respected firearms expert Bob Brister offers advice, instructions, and solutions to every situation a shotgunner might face, making Shotgunning a guide from which both seasoned veterans and novice shooters will benefit. Based on years of tests, meticulous study of data, and a lifetime of insider expertise, this book will help any shooter make every shot count.A veritable encyclopedia of the shotgun for the modern shooter and outdoorsman, Shotgunning details the selection of guns, loads, and chokes; required leads (translated into bird lengths" for easier shooting recognition); shot velocity and penetration; the effects of recoil on the shooter; wind and temperature effects on shotshells; and much more. Data analysis puts blithely held truths to the test. Myths are debunked, and Brister's conclusions are supported with hundreds of photographs, lending Shotgunning an authority that many recent, worthwhile books on the subject cannot claim.Brister brightly and boldly presents his readers with the science of shotgunning, but he never forgets the art that makes shooting a sport. Shotgunning is an elegant and educational mélangea unique and invaluable guidebook that any shotgunner must own.Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for hunters and firearms enthusiasts.
