review by Colin Greenwood (Editor)
'...Frank Spittle is something of a giant in the world of air rifle, small bore and match crossbow shooting. We do not believe that anyone could calculate just how much effort he has put into these sports. He is one of those enormously energietic and hard working organisers who manages to get things going where no-one else did, and does it without ruffling to many feathers.
....This is a fascinating story which Frank Spittle takes forward from these early days, through the formation of the National Air Rifle Association with postal leagues, and the later affiliation of airgunners to the NSRA. Bell target shooting still persists in the Black Country - and long may it do so.'

'This 48-page soft-cover book is clearly the work of an enthusiast, and it chronicles in a most interesting manner one aspect of the development of target-shooting which is often overlooked.
'...Frank's book is an important historical document, well written in an approachable manner and its modest price belies its value.
I thoroughly recommend it.'
