Format: Paperback
This highly informative little book provides everything the .22 novice and experienced shooter should know; the fundamentals in safe practice of a firearm, from simple technical answers through to more complex, ballistic accounts. The book gives an excellent flavour of how wide-ranging .22 caliber shooting can be, in its many different disciplines.

Bolt, and Semi-Auto actions, are discussed in good detail with a full chapter given to the Semi-Auto primarily because of their temperamental feed-action, accuracy and, their susceptibility to cycling ammunition.

The author is to be commended on his chapter on 'lethality'. Too often, because of their small caliber, unsuspecting novices (and sadly sometimes 'experienced' shooters) disregard the .22 caliber rifles' potential; remember, this book is discussing firearms and although be it rarely, fatalities have occurred through poor discipline and lack of respect, amongst many other reasons - used correctly however, and they are joy to shoot.

Well worth the price and a book you will always refer to.

Enjoy!

Format: Paperback
the book is very informative having chapters on history, ammunition, techniques, use and types of targets, and the types of firearm relevant to individual shooter requirements from younger shooters to hunters and bench rest target shooters, all in all well worth the cost.

This book is written for the American market but it still has a lot of useful information for the British shooter. It has some very interesting facts with regards to ammunition and rifles. A good buy if you enjoy .22 shooting.

As I am interested in .22RF rifle shooting, this book gives a comprehensive history of this type & what manufacturers of guns & ammunition are available. The pages are somewhat flimsy & appear to be recycled paper, so care is needed if you wish to keep it a number of years. Excellent content & worth the money.
