Jack O’Connor has sighted down the barrels of practically every type of rifle and shotgun since he was nine years old, when he bought a fifth-hand .30/30 and began bringing game out of his native Arizona hills. He has hunted the North American continent from southern Mexico to the northern Yukon and has stalked big game in India, Africa and Iran. The Gun Editor of Outdoor Life, from his present base in Idaho he somehow manages to find time to test new equipment, range over the world's hunting grounds, write stories and columns for Outdoor Life and answer 2,000 fan letters a month. He is the author of several books, including Hunting in the Rockies, Hunting in the Southwest, The Rifle Book, The Big-Game Rifle and The Outdoor Life Shooting Book.
In the Complete Book of Rifles and Shotguns he brings the gun lover a wealth of information on every kind of rifle and shotgun, past and present—seasoned with an occasional anecdote from his long experience in the field, all presented in the relaxed, informal O'Connor style.
