‘The Scout Rifle Study’ by Richard Mann includes a Scout Rifle Safari taking place in Africa, more specific on location at Fort Richmond Safaris, South Africa. Richard Mann we look forward to welcome you back on your 4th trip to Africa with Fort Richmond Safaris. This time for a very exciting 30 days of adventure on the African plains with various Scout Rifles. We are very excited to be the location for the Scout Rifle Safari in Africa and to be a part of this exceptional experience.
Richard Mann chose the free-access web format for his book, The Scout Rifle Study which will contain thousand of images and hundreds of videos.
After a review done by Field & Stream editor, David E Petzal, he comments as follows:
“I own two Scout rifles, have been a lifelong Jeff Cooper reader, and thought I had a pretty thorough knowledge of the subject. I don’t. Richard Mann does. Compared to him, I’ve barely scratched the surface.” David E Petzal; Rifle Editor Field & Stream.
Richard is thorough and like Petzal commented there is material in the book he never dreamed existed. In his words: “I have no idea how and where Mann got it.”
We are no doubt going to eat, sleep and spend many hours in conversation about the Scout Rifle and the many other things. Knowing Richard as a thorough researchers who does not leave any stone unturned to get to the bottom of it all, we are in for the adventure of a lifetime.
Thank you Richard for the vision. We look forward to make it a marvelous and unforgettable adventure for every hunter with his Scout Rifle.
