Excerpt from Sporting Firearms

It is assumed that the reader of this booklet is familiar with gun catalogues - whence space is saved by omitting nearly everything that catalogues have to say.

Let us consider rifles and shotguns from the user's standpoint, simply as tools of sport, to be judged strictly on their merits. The "make" of a gun, like a horse's pedigree, may be of good or ill repute; but it is not a final guarantee of merit.

To prove a gun thoroughly, it must be tested both on the range and in the field. Nobody can tell from field shooting alone just what a gun's shooting qualities are; nor can anybody tell much about its killing power and serviceability until he has used it a good deal on game.
