The BASC Handbook of Shooting covers shotgun safety, the basic rules of gun handling in the field, while travelling and at home: it examines the parts of the shotgun as well as cartridges and discusses the effective ranges of both in relation to particular quarry; it outlines the law as it relates to shooting and also includes chapters on behaviour in the field, the role of gundogs and the part played by gamekeepers in habitat and game management.
An absolute must for anyone who owns a sporting shotgun. It is rare to find a book that covers so many important subjects so comprehensively, but this book does so in an informative, easy-to-read way. Shooting Times
