Every young keeper I know has to have an 8 shot Benelli.
 
Every old keeper I know laughs at the the young keepers with their 8 shot Benellis.
 
Likewise every young keeper has to have a dedicated foxing rifle with preferably a nigh sight if not thermal.
 
Every old keeper I know is happy to have the odd fox around, and if they need removing know how to set wires and where to look with a terrier.
 
Its a fashion thing
 
Editted to add, the SX3 is a nice gun for the price.




But the young keepers are showing the old keepers how to produce a lot more grouse than the old keepers fact!

I'm having some success with a recently bought baikle hushpowered .410. Really quiet and discreet. Them 3" cartridges can do some damage. Otherwise a 12b o/u Laurona

And the old keepers knew what held more value than the young keepers. Fact.
