Guns can be dangerous!
> As a lady shooter of short stature (5ft 2in) can I ask shooters not to adopt the casual habit of carrying their broken guns over their shoulders. I have lost count of the number of times I have been hit across the head by gunstocks. So, imagine my horror on reading the December issue, page 52, to find a photograph of a shooter with his gun over his shoulder. I think this is my second letter to you on this subject, but obviously my plea to shooters is going unheard. If there are others out there who have suffered a black eye or similar, write in to Sporting Gun and let's try to get the problem sorted.
Ed – Thanks for pointing that out Barbara. To be honest, most of us on the Sporting Gun team agree with you because carrying a gun over your shoulder can be dangerous. There are better ways to carry your shotgun, such as in a gun slip, or tucked under your arm. I think we used the picture because we thought it would be more interesting than using a picture of a temporary permit.
