Guys, I went out today.... Boy it's been a while since I shot a shotgun haha, I'm shooting a tad low, but I'm still getting used to it, after a good few rounds shooting I sat down for a break and a pigeon flew over my head and a nailed it, I'm chuffed, first round down range at live quarry and a nice pigeon in the bag!

Cheers guys, and daz, if it were not for the centamental value it wouldn't have been done at all, it's one of those things, polishing a turd as they say, but it's been polished and buffed and scrubbed and it looks acceptable, that's all I'm after :) I will post some pics up sat of me doing some decoying with it
