Now, they have loaded up another game bag's worth of sharply written and wittily observed Shooting Types and unleashed them onto an expectant readership through The Second Barrel.
Here is an extended line of assorted Guns, good and not so good. Some shoot like gods, quite a lot don't. Some own dogs that retrieve what they have shot and some have dogs who chase what they haven't. There is a supporting cast of spouses, partners and significant others - some being supportive and others less so.
And then there are the keepers, beaters, pickers-up, hosts and hostesses without whom the whole undertaking would be utterly impossible and therefore no fun at all.
If you shoot or go shooting you will recognise many of the characters in this book. You may remember them with a sigh of pleasure or a gasp of horror, or something in between.
Who knows, you might even see aspects of yourself here, or if you can't, the person who gave this book to you probably does.
