Our cover photo in this issue is from our good friend Mr. Tom Schiffer; black powder shooter, riverboat captain and general gun crank who is known to frequent the immediate area of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky. Tom was there at Rabbit Hash when the Don Kettelkamp Single Shot Stalking Rifle Shoot was pulled off. The cover shows rifleman Jim Poyner addressing the “knock-down” target with his .450-.400 (23⁄8) Boss single shot rifle.
Tom has provided us with a full report on the Kettelkamp shoot, which will be of interest to anyone who has an appreciation for fine stalking rifles of either English or German persuasion. Check out Tom’s article in this issue for all the particulars, and see if you don’t agree that these guys had way too much fun.
