KIRKUS REVIEW

Position, aim and firing are covered about as thoroughly as any individual, whether he be professional or amateur, could ask. A rank beginner could find exact information as to what to wear, how to stand, kneel, sit or lie prone, how to aim and shoot. An old timer will find a hundred valuable suggestions for improving a score. A coach will secure the expert advice of the man who has a monopoly on world championships. Not an unwieldy tome, in spite of its all-inclusiveness. It is shorn of non-essentials, in clear cut style, directions easy to understand and to execute. There are valuable chapters on the care of the rifle, on physical fitness, calculations, wind velocity, etc., all filling out the practical aspects of the subject. Contact the officers of reserve units, and secure their recommendations for their membership.
