At the back of many a gun cabinet lurks a neglected old shotgun. This book will encourage its owner to bring it back into use. It also provides practical advice on buying the right gun for restoration. It describes the steps and potential pitfalls on the path to renovation so the gun can be used and enjoyed. The author's passion is for old guns and for their continued use in the field. He argues that the quality of craftsmanship in many old guns, as well as the sheer pleasure of handling them, makes them superior to the machine-made over/unders of the modern shooting field. Hadoke covers all aspects of collecting and restoring shotguns for use - on an affordable budget. He writes for the shooter rather than the engineer or historian, and his fascinating book is presented in an easy-to-read style. 224pp.
