From the Author


This short video clip shows the final proof test of serial no. 1601 created during the revision of this book. The load for this 12 bore is massive, 110 grains of 2F powder and 2 3/4 ounces of shot. Watch at discharge as the tire is lifted and driven several inches backward. How hard would that kick if fired from the shoulder? Let's just say one would definitely notice the overload!
