Here's the perfect companion to that most popular starter rifle, the venerable .22. The best isn't always the biggest--and the .22 is not only the perfect first rifle, but also one that many hunters and shooters come back to and use throughout their days afield.
Wayne van Zwoll, a longtime expert on the subject, takes experts and beginners alike through the history, variety, and use of the classic .22. He writes appealingly about his first .22, and the ones he bought for later competitive use. He describes hunting with the .22, target shooting, and details the care and upkeep of the weapon. He discusses the evolution of the gun, and the refinements of the ammo that go with it.
