This first volume will cover early history of German target shooting from the early middle ages to just before World War II, as well as the early rifles from matchlock to percussion. Also covered are the Bundesschliessen (state or national shoots) adnd associated memorabilia. American shooters at the Bindesschliessen, Vogelbuschen and the Aydt, Badar,, Bornmuller and Buchel Schutzen rifles.
As a volume containing all the Schutzen rifle would be so large the balance of the Schutzen rifles will be covered in the next volume. This book was originally started by Jesse Thompson and after several trips to Germany and years of work he asked the Tom Rowe to complete the book. To accomplish the task, Tom enlisted the aid of coauthors and has had wonderful cooperation from collectors in Germany, Austria, Portugal, Canada and the United Kingdom as well as the United States. Three years accumulating information and photographs have just scratched the surface. The history, techniques and famous shooters of the time are extremely elusive.
Furthermore, the German gunsmiths were all inventive and many had a better design: endless variations, new models, and improvements are the result and no book could ever hope to cover them all - there is still a lot to discover.
