Writing The Book On "Scatter Guns"

Shotguns & Shotgunning by Layne Simpson

Layne Simpson knows shotguns. Presented with a shotgun by his father at an early age, Layne is now considered one of America's most versatile writers on the subject of hunting and shotgunning. He's brought this knowledge and expertise to a new book, Shotguns & Shotgunning. This is a must-have for the experienced shotgunner, or for anyone who is considering making an investment in their first shotgun. After tracing the development of shotguns and shotshells, Layne turns his keen eye to the many variations of shotguns currently on the market, comparing and contrasting double guns, pump guns, autoloaders and bolt-actions, along with exploring the most common gauges.
