Ashley Sterne Hints for the Shooting Season
I ran across this Ashley Sterne quote on a hunting blog today. The blog entry referenced his article "Hints for the Shooting Season":
"When ordering [a gun from the gunmaker] it is as well to state how many barrels you want. For my part I like quite a lot of barrels, the weapon which I am at present using having seventeen. When I walk on the moors with it, people think I'm going to give an organ recital and go through their pockets for threepenny-bits."
