Whether you are hunting small game or caribou, clay pigeon shooting or target pistol shooting, SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Sporting Guns is a comprehensive introduction to the major gun types used for sport. Wildfowling, clay pigeon shooting, Cowboy Action Shooting, hunting game, target shooting, tracking deer… Gun sports come in many different forms, and 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, calibre 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.
