Author - Swan - Publisher - Swanhill

"This is a new third Edition of an old favourite, and its continuing popularity is well deserved. Mike's huge experience means that his advice is absolutely sound and based on personal knowledge, and although the book is aimed at those who are relatively new to the sport, there is a lot that will be valuable to the more experienced Guns.

Mike writes clearly and concisely, managing to say a great deal in a short space; the result is a 196 page book which is a pleasure to read, despite being crammed with information and makes a fine introduction to our sport". --BASC Shooting and Conservation
