I have a HW 80 and was wondering if ibought one of those pigeon decoys that spin round, would i get them close enough to shoot, i live next to a field so i could shoot from inside of a shed, im new to guns so go easy on me, i work terriers and lurchers but i thought id give it a go.

i would think you would be better off with some normal deeks, i dont think they would land with just a rotary, they sometimes put the birds off.

and do you have the landowners permission to shoot the field

 

if so, and there's no other available

I've always found a water butt is a good attractent, an old cut down barrel, left in position will bring birds in

A rotory 'pigeon magnet' will bring birds within range of a shotgun on the wing but they will very rarely land near one. Full bodied decoys lofted in a tree are a good bet for a static target if you have a suitable sitty tree. Remote control flappers may also work as they can be activated to attract a passing bird but then left off so as not to spook one when it lands.

 

Your HW80 will easily take pigeons out to 30-40 yards. :)
