This business of writing about guns and hunting seems to be a delightfully easy way to make a living. Just go hunting on somebody else’s nickel, scribble away for a bit, and giggle all the way to the bank. It is not quite as easy as it sounds. First you need to have something to write about that is worth reading, plus, of course, knowledge or experience—preferably both. Surprisingly, perhaps shockingly, when you wake up one morning and declare yourself a writer, people don’t stand in line to send you guns to write about or take you hunting in the far corners of the Earth.

After a few days we found a nice ram in a big herd, about two hundred yards away from one promontory to another. At the shot the bullet struck rock beyond and the ram took off with the herd. Finn instantly called the shot a high miss. Admittedly, that’s exactly what it looked like, and the ram showed no reaction at all. I had a lot more faith in that unusual rifle than he did, and I was certain of a good hit.
