The world of sporting firearms is a constantly changing one, but it’s always important to remember the past of the sport. Sporting Firearms of Today in Use is a vintage text written by the shooting editor of Field and Stream during that time. Full of incredible insights, Sporting Firearms of Today in Use covers such topics as: • Choosing a rifle • The killing power of the shotgun • English vs. American shooting • The use of a compass • Bird dogs and hounds • Field etiquette • And much more! Now almost a hundred years after its first publication, Sporting Firearms of Today in Use remains a valuable source of information on sporting firearms from the 1920’s. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for hunters and firearms enthusiasts. We publish books about shotguns, rifles, handguns, target shooting, gun collecting, self-defense, archery, ammunition, knives, gunsmithing, gun repair, and wilderness survival.
