Shows two Scottish gamekeepers and a hunter on a highland moor. One of them stands before a mitrailleuse (a breach-loading machine gun), which he aims into the distance. The caption explains that much to the 'disgust' of the keepers, the hunter, 'Mr. Snapwincke, who has a view to a "Big Bag" of his moor in as short a time as possible [...] can't see why you should shut your eyes to the advance of science' and builds the new weapon 'on a principle of his own'.
