The world of sporting firearms is a constantly changing one, but it’s always important to remember the past of the sport. Sporting Firearms of Today in Use is a vintage text written by the shooting editor of Field and Stream during that time. Full of incredible insights, Sporting Firearms of Today in Use covers such topics as:

Choosing a rifle
The killing power of the shotgun
English vs. American shooting
The use of a compass
Bird dogs and hounds
Field etiquette
And much more!

Now almost a hundred years after its first publication, Sporting Firearms of Today in Use remains a valuable source of information on sporting firearms from the 1920’s.
