Aaaah, you’re killing me! But I can’t justify buying both a Kindle and a paperback version of the same book. I’ve pre-ordered my bed, now I have to lie in it.Alex, Your name and article is mentioned. Please read.
Yeah. I caught that, too. Since the reference wasn't attributed to anyone else I figured that it might have been a train of consciousness slip up by the author that drew no notice by editors or others who might have been proofing it. I also thought that it might have been something that was condensed from statements about the acquisition of the .22 rifle, .22 birdshot and Bill's naivete on being able to shoot ducks and geese for food using the two together. I never read an account of a successful bird hunt by Bill with that rifle. If he tried birdshot I think he gave up on that experiment pretty early on.A book that contains the phrase ".22 shotgun" is not a reliable source of info about firearms.
