What you will gain from this book is a wealth of knowledge on the safari rifle: historical and present double-rifle makers, ballistics for the large bores, what today's professional hunters use, the ideal one-, two-. and three-rifle safari set up, bullets, components, second-hand dealers, and much, much more. If you ever wanted a comprehensive book on guns for Africa, this is itl Boddington, who is a veteran of over twenty safaris, has garnered his wealth of experience into writing this book. Not only is this a book on the technical aspects of safari rifles and cartridges, it is also a wealth of information on which guns are the best to use on which animals. Furthermore, he explains why his experience has led him to the conclusions he has drawn. Finally, Boddington has put together in the five appendices an invaluable directory to gun makers, a table of the guns professional hunters most often use, and a list of what guns professional hunters recommend that their clients bring on safari. This is quite the most complete and fascinating text on its subject to be published in the last two decades-and one that is sure to become a classic.
