Each gun and rifle should have its waterproof case and sling. I consider hammerless weapons the best. A good shikar knife is essential. All rifles should have the lowest trajectory possible, and be finely sighted and well tested. Judging distances is very difficult ; more animals are missed through mistakes in this respect than from any other cause. It is a difficult knack to acquire. Every rifle should carry point-blank up to two hundred yards, or as near that as possible. Have the sights pf your rifles, after testing, screwed into the rib. *
