Hunting was always Wm. Hovey Smith's passion, and if there was anything he was more passionate about was hunting with a variety of muzzleloading guns. This passion took him to Africa where he took big game with a muzzleloading pistol, double-barreled slug-shotgun, and a bolt-action muzzleloading rifle. His interests grew to include hunting both big and small game with muzzleloading revolvers and even a blunderbuss. Many of these hunts were published in national magazines, and also featured in some of the author's more than 800 videos which are linked to the text in this expanded, interactive Second Edition. This review of muzzleloading guns discusses rifles, pistols, and smoothbore guns and includes specific recommendation along with references to the other seven books in this series. It also discusses the possibilities of restoring old guns to shooting condition and building your own muzzleloader from a kit and lists the equipment and supplies that are needed. Some of the guns that he used were considerably gunsmithed to make them much more effective hunting tools along with the use of modern powders and bullets. This book is ideal for a person who is thinking about buying a muzzleloader or hunting with one.
