British Double Rifles by Derek Stimpson
The HBSA Annual Bisley Lecture 2004

The British side-by-side double-barrelled shotgun is both a classic and world renowned. A fine British double rifle has elegance, style and balance. It is a work of art and a precision tool. Why a double barrel? The immediate availability of two shots, rather than one, may secure dinner (or perhaps a larger dinner). Double rifles have been largely used for big game hunting and in particular dangerous game when two instantaneously aimed shots might make the difference between life and death
This is a presentation delivered to an annual meeting of the Historical Breechloading Smallarms Association (HBSA) of Great Britain in Bisley UK. Website: www.hbsa-uk.org
