You guessed it lads, I took both the FWB Sport 127 (.22) and the HW 100 kt .177.

 

              I started about 10 am with the FWB Sport and by 12 pm I`d shot around 14 or 15 pigeon.

 

              Then I thought to swap over to the 100 as presentations were warming up and the mag` and reload of the 100 would be "far superior" over the old fashioned reload.

 

              My best mate, Kaiser and myself had a great day out shooting.

 

Wood Pigeon retrieved --- 61,   lost to fly and fold -- 9

 

Magtrick - 3 bandits shot one after the other. ( HW 100 mag` in action)  :good: 

 

Pair of crows - 2 crows shot one after the other, ( HW 100 mag` in action) :good: 

 

                Here`s the hide view.

Well shot Mark and a perfect situation when the airgun fits in better than the shotgun.

 

I still prefer to take them on the wing but that is just me.

Thank you Phil.

 

             Now don`t shout at me :sorry: - for this !

 

             Far more skill, field craft, finesse, good looks, patience, know how, marksmanship,bestest after shave, trigger squeeze, training, practice etc, etc, etc with a sub 12 ft/lbs air rifle than a BOOM! BOOM ! Blow the countryside up - " BOOOOM" !  " Field craft less " blunder buss !  :icon_eek:  :nono:

 

           On the wing ?  :hunter:  " BOOOOOM" !   :icon_redface:  :bad:

 

 

 

                         " only saying like "   :laugh: x

 

                                      and just pulling legs, :tongue2:

Sub 12 ft/lbs, in either calibre, used correctly, is far from " utter shite". :angel:

That was my thought when I saw the pictures - the perfect tools for that job :yes:

..... Cracking result Mark :good:


Would you even be allowed to take them on the wing with a shotgun there?

Good to see Kaiser working again :thumbs:
..... It got me wondering - has he ever retrieved a decoy? :laugh:

When I shoot the paper targets I leave a floppy decoy under the boards.

              When the target is used up I send him in for the retrieve,- he loves this.

              The reason I train this is because out of so many shots decoying you will get a runner and he`s always on full alert if I give him the call,- " Get him lad !"

 

              One peep on my whistle stops him dead in his tracks.

 

              Two peeps gives instant re call.

 

                               atb  Mark.
