Gun Craft is a popular column written by Vic Venters for Shooting Sportsman magazine. In each issue, Venters examines today’s finest shotguns and all the aspects of making them, with occasional glances back to fine guns and relevant technical issues from the past. Venters’s new book is based upon those columns, with chapters exploring such topics as engraving, barrel making, chokes, restoring old guns, and custom gunmakers from Italy to England. These topics have been specifically chosen to provide readers with a unified insight into the complicated task of making handmade shotguns in both Europe and the United States.

Dust jacket copy: The early 21st century marks a transitional period in artisanal gunmaking. New computer-controlled manufacturing technology is supplanting the traditional craft skills once required to make fine shotguns and rifles. Noted gun authority Vic Venters knows well the time-honored methods and many of the craftsmen who still employ them—and he wants to preserve that knowledge for generations to come. In Gun Craft Venters draws on extensive research and in-depth interviews as he examines today's artisanally made guns and provides insights into crafting "handmade" firearms in both Europe and the United States. His intent is to make the sometimes arcane techniques and technical information accessible and relevant to readers' experiences shooting, owning, and collecting guns. Gun Craft is required reading for anyone who appreciates fine shotguns and the effort and skill that go into making them.
