"I have not written for the specialist, amateur or professional, in any branch of gun-knowledge or practice. Rather, I write as an ordinary shooter, whose qualifications are a lifelong interest in guns and shooting, a long experience, and a professional training which throws light on some aspects of the subject." G.T. Garwood (Gough Thomas). Chapters include: Historical background; Modern guns; Choice of a gun (type); Choice of a gun (performance); Patterns; choke; Cartridges; Weight and recoil; Magnum guns; Balance; Miscellanea - safety catches, stocks and gun-fitting, size of shot, slugs, trigger pulls, gun cleaning, ribs, chromium plating of bores, the ideal battery. There are five dust-wrapper variants. This is the first issue, with a list of 12 proposed titles for the series.
