From the publisher:

  • 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 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. He discusses the evolution of the gun, and the refinements of the ammo that go with it.
    Included are chapters on:
    The .17
    Practical Scopes
    Squirrel Rifles
    Getting to Zero
    Holding a Rifle Still
    The Sling
    Prepping for the Field
    A Bullet?s Way through the Wind
    Real Gunstocks
    Better Sights . . . and more
    The .22?s accuracy, economy and versatility have made it an all-time best seller. Now there?s a book to go with every one. Wayne van Zwoll has published more than a thousand articles about the outdoors, for magazines such as Sports Afield, Outdoor Life, and Field & Stream. He is the author of The Hunter?s Guide to Ballistics, and The Hunter?s Guide to Accurate Shooting, among others.
