The author, the editor of GAME SHOOTING, recognized that there was a need for an introductory textbook for sportsmen with limited resources and limited opportunities who are taking out a gun license for the first time and also for those who, for the lack of expert coaching, wonder why they so often miss. This is a teach-yourself book. The method is Robert Churchill's, the great gunmaker's, and easily the best method of learning safe, straight shooting, but it recognizes that most people who burn powder haven't got money to burn. This book advises, first what sort of gun to buy, and NOT to buy; how to check whether a gun fits. There is a comprehensive drill, with photos, to enable any shooting man to coach himself in correct gunmounting and swing, the right positions for feet and hands, clean trigger-pulling and follow-through.
