How To Shoot-Robert Churchill

£17.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Geoffrey Bles. London. (1925) 1930 third new edition. Small 8vo (127 x 191mm). Pp119. B/w photographs. This was a new, pre-war, slightly enlarged edition of this famous and useful book. The author was a noted London gunsmith who ran a very successful shooting school in Kent, experience from which forms the basis of this book. "A gunmaker who really enters into the details of his business, mechanical and human, in time collects much information vital to gun users. This survey comprises a selection from the material so gathered. No book can teach a man to shoot. He must have a gun, cartridges and practice as well. But 'every why has a wherefore.' If you understand the 'wherefore' you have made valuable progress. If you can apply even a portion of the 'wherefore' in practice you will find your shooting improves. Should your shooting improve after you have tried some of the suggestions in this book, my satisfaction will be complete." Robert Churchill. Chapters include: The personal factor; General principles; Stance and footwork; Grip; The first or 'ready' position; Gun mounting; The theory of allowance; Overhead and crossing shots; Position of the head; Eyesight and the master eye; Shooting discomforts and cures; Shapes of gunstock; Gun adjustments and field repairs; Instructions for using and loading a pair of guns; Hints for beginners; Trapshooting; How to shoot clays; Testing stock fit; Competition psychology; Game guns of today; Shooting for ladies. After another thirty years' experience shooting and teaching, Robert Churchill published Game Shooting: A Textbook on the Successful Use of the Modern Shotgun
