When the first edition of The Art of the Rifle was released in 1997, it received glowing reviews from every quarter. In this special color edition, Cooper’s eloquent and spirited prose is matched with beautiful, artfully displayed color photographs illustrating exactly how the rifle is to be used in all kinds of circumstances. This full-color, reference-sized edition also contains a new preface and a chapter on the Scout rifle that you won’t want to miss.
The Art of the Rifle is a training manual on the use of the rifle in the field, not at the firing range. The late Colonel Cooper taught marksmanship for most of his adult life and in doing so developed systems for imparting the necessary information and dexterity that lead to success. In his usual Spartan style, Cooper dispenses with the superfluous and gets right down to the essential elements.
