Overview

Whether you are hunting small game or caribou, clay shooting or target pistol shooting, Special Forces Sporting Guns is a comprehensive introduction to the major gun types used for sport. From wildfowling, Cowboy Action Shooting, and hunting game to target shooting and tracking deer, gun sports come in many different forms. The weapons needed to pursue these sports are equally varied—over-and-under shotguns, air rifles, target pistols, spring guns, pump shotguns, bolt-action rifles, and semi-automatic weapons.

Our expert author offers advice on every aspect of gun sports, including choosing the right gun, shooting techniques, caliber and gauge, using sights and scopes, “plinking,” maintained lead versus pull-through, shooting safety, game-bird shooting, how to deal with misfires, and wilderness hunting techniques. The book also includes individual features on some of the best-known sporting guns, including the Weatherby Mk V, Mossberg 500, Sako TRG 22, Benelli SuperSport, Ruger Mini 14, and the Henry Big Boy.

Including more than 150 artworks, tips, and techniques, Special Forces Sporting Guns provides a complete guide to sporting guns and their uses for the sporting gun enthusiast.
