So do humans but they won't let us shoot 'em.

Some of them seem to stab them just lately, terrible times we live in

I'm not worried about knife crime, I'm assured the government is going appoint a supremo who will soon have it all sorted once they agree how big the salary will be and whether they get an OBE or a knighthood

With the laser sight on my air rifle it’s virtually impossible to miss the target. You can even shoot from the hip. Doesn’t give the prey a sporting chance!

Only if the laser is set up for the correct distance Phil,I prefer my BSA 3-9x40 scope,can work out the distance and adjust height accordingly

I've got a Stirling scope attached as well and the laser sits on top. I've not shot for some time but I always seemed to score a bullseye. Actually you've restimulated my interest. I might go out and take a few shots with the Rapid Seven tomorrow if I can find my Target Trophy pellets I bought from Walkers of Trowell some years ago. I suppose it's easier to buy online now. I did refurbish the gun with new seals a while back and I had to get a chrono to ensure it was shooting well below 12ft. lbs.

Can't beat a bit of target shooting Phil varying distances,some guy's now are hitting bulls eye out to 100 meters and more, might have a go at that myself now I've got the new bi-pod, I only shoot down the farm for pest control reasons, pigeons make a terrible mess in the barns and over the expensive tractors, have you done any club shooting? hunter field target is good fun

Never done any club shooting but I do have some A4 card in stock so I'll print off a few targets. I have got a target holder somewhere if I can find it, otherwise I'll just pin them to a board and lean it against a tree. I00 M for is a bit too ambitious!

There is/was a good friendly HFT club at Waddington, they have a smallish range with about 5 lanes plus a good HFT circuit for standing,sitting,kneeling and prone shooting

I used to shoot rabbits, pigeons and squirrels with my .22 but I just don't have the heart to kill living creatures now. Probably going soft in my old age.

 

Good for you, Phil, having a change of heart about killing things...

I threw the pigeons a croissant this morning but being so light a magpie flew away with it! Lidl croissants highly recommended - better than Waitrose.

We don't have a Lidl near us but we do have an Aldi, and their croissants are good, too, and better value for money than Tesco, Sainsbury and (obviously) Waitrose

Our nearest supermarkets are nearly 6 miles away, although we do have a  Spar shop and a butcher in the village.   I don't think I'd go on a 20 mile round trip just to get croissants .... think  I'd have a piece of toast instead

Obviously we don’t go just to get croissants but we do go once a week to look at the junk down the centre isle. Sometimes find a bargain. It’s in Bingham. Waitrose is in Newark, eight miles away.
