The book is written in clear and simple language by an accredited instructor who has been using, teaching and writing about firearms for over 25 years. The reader is led through the need for training, the relevance of hunting today and the connection between hunting and conservation. This is followed by the fundamentals of safety, hunter responsibilities and the process of shooting. Case studies, based upon real incidents are included to illustrate how accidents have occurred in the past. Firearms maintenance, ballistics and the reloading of ammunition are explained in simple terms, as also are the fundamentals of game preparation, survival and hunting techniques. The book includes a small chapter on the use of handguns for veterinary euthanasia, and concludes with a detailed glossary of terms, recommended calibres for game animals and answers to the questions posed at the end of each chapter.
