Charles Askins (father of Col. Charles Askins) had a well-deserved reputation as the foremost American authority on shotguns and bird shooting during his long career as a hunter and writer on sporting subjects. Shotgun-ology: A Handbook of Useful Shotgun Information, originally published in 1926, is a brief review of shotguns, ammunition, the fitting of guns, the effectiveness of various gauges and other information that a shooter needs to know -- or is just curious about. Most important, it is a timeless study of bird-shooting technique. While guns and loads have changed a bit during the past century, the ability to hit a flying bird is the heart of shotgunning, and experienced and novice shooters alike will find answers in Shotgun-ology to many of their questions. Paladin is pleased to be able to offer this classic shooting handbook -- with an illuminating foreword by the major's grandson, William Askins -- to today's shotgun enthusiasts.
