The history of the sporting shotgun began with Henry Nock's patent in 1787 and Robin Marshall-Ball's completely revised second edition of his classic work follows its development to the present day. This is a book on 'working guns for the average shooting public' and it is crammed with invaluable information on the evolution of the modern shotgun, side-by-sides, over and unders, repeaters and automatics, the workings of a shotgun, ballistics, shooting in Britain and overseas, shooting law, and much, much more. This is a 'must-have' book for every shooting enthusiast and is a companion to the acclaimed The Sporting Rifle (Swan Hill Press 1 84037 116 1).
