- Author BiographyLewis Potter has had a lifelong interest in firearms and started shooting over fifty-five years ago as a boy with an old Lincoln Jefferies air rifle. Subsequently, time in the Army Cadets introduced him to the .22 rimfire, .303 Lee Enfield and the Bren gun. At the age of thirteen he obtained a shotgun, and in 1974 he joined a local rifle and pistol club, of which he is currently the Honorary President. Ballistics first interested him as a teenager, when he began to make increasingly sophisticated cannon. The search for greater performance led him to making the first steps towards understanding something about the performance of projectiles in flight.
