In Modern Shotgunning, Dave Henderson gives readers a nuts-and-bolts look at modern shotguns. He explains chokes, stocks, barrels, and optics, as well as cleaning and safety practices. He also discusses how to choose the appropriate shotgun, shotgun games, gun fit, hand loading, and building your own specialty guns.
Henderson doesn't write above his readers either, offering plainly written advice based on years of experience in the field and at the range. He writes without boast that in a year he probably shoots more rounds than do most hunters in a lifetime. Neither is Henderson leaning toward the heavy-wallet crowd, for he knows the average hunter may not care for or cannot afford two-thousand-dollar shotguns, souped-up slug guns or optics. He offers tips for the budget-conscious, such as creating a cleaning rod from a soft pine dowel with a bicycle handlebar grip on one end and using Bounty paper towels rolled to bore diameter as a cleaning patch. Modern Shotgunning is ideal for beginners but not to be overlooked by veterans.
