Can you define the difference between a wood pigeon and a rabbit ?

What i mean to say , is why can you shoot one not the other ? :hmm:

Welcome aboard mate!

Don't worry about the pest control but not shooting bunnies thing. I took my 'little' brother out a few years back and as a kid he'd had pet rabbits but thought he'd be cool with seeing a rabbit getting shot. We were up on a dutch barn and a bunny came out 30 yards away. i took it with his rifle he'd bought and it slumped over, still with grass in its mouth.
Proud of my clinically perfect shot, I turned to look at him. He'd gone grey!

Funnily enough, I've taken him pigeon shooting with shotguns recently and he was fine with it! Killed a few himself too.

Good luck with your rekindled hobby.

I just find it strange that you can shoot a bird and not a rabbit . Don t get me wrong , each to their own but an emotional attachment ? oh well ........

I'd also recommend the Weihrauch springers. Especially the 95 and 97k's. Fantastic rifles :)

Thanks Dean. Was looking at some of the weihrauch range, partly the reason I wanted a used one. Out of my price range now.

Now to get familiar with their model numbers o.O
Quality is remembered, long after the price paid is forgotten ;)
