John Schippers was born in Michigan in 1939.  At the age of twelve John learned to hunt with a 20-gauge percussion single-barrel shotgun that a relative gave him. This started a lifetime love of hunting and muzzleloading guns. John recalls; “They gave me that old junk gun thinking that I would never be able to do anything with it. I fooled them. It ended up being the best gun for me.. I got more game with that old relic than any other gun I ever owned.”  Mr. Schippers built his first gunstock in a high school wood shop in 1954 and never stopped building guns. He worked as a machinist and tool maker, then worked in the museum field for over 30 years as a specialist in restoration, conservation, and exhibition.  This book is a culmination of how-to information and large wealth of knowlege.
