"Shooting training is all too often a hotch-potch of friends' advice, shooting lore and limited personal experience. Michael Kemp has provided the beginner instead with a logical, step-by-step course to successful and enjoyable shooting... The particular value of [Kemp's] method is that it provides a foundation which can be relied upon in that bad patch which even the finest shot must suffer occasionally." Chapters include: Part One - Learning to shoot: The modern approach; Shall I be good enough?; A neat style from the outset; Handling and mounting the gun; Stance; Feet and head; The first clays; The smoke trail method; Oncoming birds; 'Tracking' and some new exercises; Higher oncoming birds; Does the oncomer still defeat you?; Over and past you; The end of the novice stage; Curing a bad patch; Advanced shooting; Something of the hidden mathematics; Which is the best method?. Part Two - Guns, Equipment, etc; The cost and ways of taking up shooting; Choosing a gun for game; Fitting a gun; the kick of the gun; Proof marks; The care of a gun; Bad cartridges and good; Clothes and accessories; Finding somewhere to shoot. Part Three - In The Shooting Field: Walking-up for beginners; More advanced walking-up; The threshold of formal shooting; The first formal shooting; On driving pheasants; The first partridge drives; A tourist amongst grouse; Teamwork with a loader; Miscellanea; Range and the vulnerability of game.
