This is a revised and enlarged new edition of Gough Thomas's Second Gun Book. "In his writing, Gough Thomas's aim is 'to promote a better understanding of the sporting gun and of the things that conduce to its most successful and enjoyable employment in the field'. Few writers are better equipped to do this, for not only has Gough Thomas Garwood had long experience in shooting and as Gun Editor of the Shooting Times, he also has the background of a highly-qualified engineer, and the rare gift of being able to convey technical information and practical advice with clarity and literary elegance. Good humour, too, is never far away. Much of his delving into the subtle and intricate relationship between the man and his gun has produced new and significant conclusions, but his devotion to the sport always dominates theoretical discussion. Some of the material in Shooting Facts and Fancies has already appeared in Gough Thomas's Second Gun Book - now out of print. This new and much enlarged version of the earlier book will equally be welcomed by his wide and faithful following".
