“How to be Asked again” A step-by-step guide to modern shooting etiquette stuffed full of amusing quotes and anecdotes. How to be Asked Again instructs the Gun on how to be the perfect guest out shooting. Inspired by the fact that so many more people are taking up shooting as adults, it encapsulates everything you need to know but no one will ever tell you out shooting as ‘you are just expected to know’. The books covers in a logical way what happens: From the moment you receive the shooting invitation, to arriving at the shoot, shooting safely and courteously, what never to say and how to tip the keeper. Much of this information comes from beaters, keepers, flankers, pickers up, shoot organisers, shoot owners and grouse moor owning earls and dukes. Hilarious cartoons by Oliver Preston, cartoonist for The Field Magazine, makes this a very entertaining book on shooting, the perfect gift for any shooting man or woman, either novice shot or experienced Gun.

The Imperfect Shot
Shooting Tales, Gaffes and Excuses…
Oliver illustrates Jeremy Hobson’s wonderful book with stories of light-hearted errors and the ill-judgement of those who have experienced minor faux-pas and misdemeanours on the shooting field – and also glorifies those who have got the better of a particular situation! Why did I say that?; Why did I do that?; Why did my dog do that?; Why didn’t I think about the weather?; What was I thinking? are all questions one might ask oneself the evening after! Fortunately, you are not alone in your worries! Lavishly illustrated with Oliver’s cartoons it is the perfect present for shooting types.
