Shotgunning : The Art and the Science
by Bob Brister




Overview -
"Eminently readable, and more shotgun info than you can use in a lifetime." --David E. Petzal, Deputy Editor, Field & Stream Magazine.

Let expert Bob Brister offer you advice, instructions, and solutions to every situation a shotgunner might face. Based on years of tests, meticulous study of data, and a lifetime of experience, his advice 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. Chapters include:

  • Shotgun Etiquette
  • The Pump-Action Gun
  • Why a Two-Barreled Gun
  • The Modern Autoloader
  • How to Make Your Gun Fit
  • Recoil and Balance
  • Barrels, Chokies, and Forcing Cones
  • Stock Answers
  • The Fine Art of Waterfowl Shooting
  • Upland Gunning
  • Trap and Skeet
  • And much more

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 m lange--a unique and invaluable guidebook that any shotgunner must own.
