Double Whammy...

Well a first today, my first permission, phoned a few farmers up and got nowhere, there was one who had rabbits and was in when I called, but had a family that loved shooting so no joy there, however they knew of a landowner with a rabbit problem, 1 call later and I got her last permissions! Hooray so now the bunnies can say hello to rapid deliveries from Edgar.   The wife then decided she did not want to take her Diana into the field and get it covered with mud, grass, grit or whatever it got dropped in, so she decided she was going to have a new gun to plink with. Rang up a gunsmith in Attleborough and he recommended a Hatsan 60S, the same gun that Edgar is, new gun, a Hawke 2-9x40 scope, under £130! What a bargain! So that is being picked up tomorrow, along with a new scope for Edgar, he will be pleased!   So will keep this updated as to when we go, how we do, watch out for photos of duff bunnies! Hopefully!

Been out today...

Well had her out on the range and what a gun. Virtually no recoil, good grouping and fast, real fast, shot .22s all my life and Marina is a .177! She is quiet too, put a review about her up on the review section under Standby For Action...   The wife is happy with her Diana 280, but she has to take it back, the trigger is way too light, virtually no hold before firing, so she wants some more resistance added. Thats the good thing with buying new though, the dealer will fix any little problems you might have!

New toys, new toys!

Righty ho peeps. This is my blog about gun ownership, firing, hunting and whatever else I may do that involves my rifles. I have 2, the beautiful Marina (a Webley Stringray mk II with quattro trigger and recoil absorbing system) and an old Hatsan model 60S (with iron sights not fibre optic). This will be a fairly newbie owners mishaps, so get ready for fun and frolics with 2 rifles and also a not of what the wife has been up to with her gun too!

Suffolk Lurcher Folk

Hello - am a newbie on this forum. Am based on the Suffolk coast, owning 2 lurchers - one retired old girl (still as keen as mustard, but age has taken its toll), and a younger 18 month old bitch. I would be interested to hear from other folk in the local area. I seem to see numerous lurchers, but I think the majority are owned merely as pets. Look forward to hearing from people working their dogs in the local area.

From: Different day and thanks Niel

Went out with my buddy Riffraff today !   He had offered to drive me up to Swanland today so we could check out my latest permission (bit far to walk)   When we arrived 1st thing we noticed were a couple of Foles in the field. 2nd thing we noticed is that its open for people who are passing to see us and what makes it a real pain in the ass to shoot is its surrounded by a public footpath/bridleway on three sides and its very well used   Third thing we noticed was that we could walk to within a few feet of the 5 or so Maggies that were scrapping over a female, they didn't seem to give a damn about our proximity   As we got to the end of the paddock on the footpath, we say a female inside the paddock, she was not there when we had arrived, so we walked back to see who she was, turns out she's a rather attractive piece who owns the foles .   We informed her that it was the landowner who had asked us to bop some bunnies on this land and she replied "Oh Great, there are hundreds of them on here and the holes are everywhere"   She told us she was there to meet a farmer who she was paying to come and cut the weeds and scrub down and as she said that he arrived with his big tractor and evil looking beast of a grasscutter. He set to cut the scrub, while we admired this ladies derriair when she bent over (Can we have a drool or a sluuuurrrrp Icon please) During the cutting we only saw three bunnies. After she said goodbye she said she was looking forward to seeing us again and told us that the best ime to catch the bunnies is late evening, so were going to be arranging another visit to coincide with them.   Riff and I then had a quick Zero session (or more to the point I did as I needed to sort my baby out after my little stunt the other night in the cemetery)   Anyways once sorted we had a wander over the land itself and found numerous warrens and plenty of places to set up in ambush, but we decided there and then that it would have been futile to hang around anymore today. We came back here and had some grub, then headed out to the cemetery and paddock permission a couple of minutes away. Well it went silly from the second we pulled up outside the gate!   I got out of the car to be greated by 8 yes EIGHT black and white minstrals strutting their stuff across my permission and they stayed in the same easy pickings area, until I got my gun out of the slip then they fled, most landed in the conker tree at the cemy, so it was a slow steady stalk to the part of the boundry where I cross into the cemetery.   As soon as we began our stalk, bunny after bunny began to jump out from under our feet Much of the grass and scrub was brown now due to lack of water and baking heat that weve had the last couple of weeks so these bunnies were very well hidden with their brownish and grey coats on. As we got closer to the tree Woodies began to take flight from the smaller trees .   We got to the conker tree and all the magpies decided to leave and go land on the deck in the cemetery I was gonna get lucky today As I headed into the cemetery, there in front of me was a full grown buck just sort of givving me the "What the feck are you" look. He didn't seem too fussed as I raised my baby in my arms and placed the crosshair on the front of one eye, so the pellet would decimate the brain behind. As I steadied my breathing I let the shot fly My baby had been knocked in the turrets on her crown and the pellet sailed past the bunny hitting a dead branch behind it. Bunny gave me the "Oh your here to kill me" look and gave it legs into bunnyland! The maggies had heard the shot hit the branch and were now sailing over our heads back into the adjoining paddock As I turned round to head back I noticed another bunny 25 or so yards away from me, so taking note of where Riff was, I got myself comfortable using a large headstoneas a rest and let the little blighter have it in the noggin and again, I missed very cleanly and bugs vanished down the hole he was sat next to.   We then decided to concentrate on the maggies and wound up following them right around the perimeter of the paddock, those black and white mistrals were extracting the urine out of us BIG TIME! What made it worse was as we followed them, Woodies and bunnies just appeard time and again from that magical 4th dimension right in front of us and all we saw of them were wings flapping away and bunnies giving us the one finger salute with their tails.   We decided to call it a day and we drove back here again, I was about to get out the car and stick the coffee machine on when Riff said, "Go tell Lesley, were off to Roos"   Upon arrival at Roos, 1st thing that we saw was a White bunny with black eyes. Unfortunately Riff has done a good job there and the white ones are now off limits as there are now only three left and are considdered to be under control, but the rest of the bunnies are legit targets.   We spent some time on the Zero range and I decided I was going back to imperial units and zeroed my baby to 35 yards. And put pellet on pellet then I worked my way through all the spinners, and knockfdowns on the plinking range easily putting pellet atfer pellet through 10mm KZ's.   We then went for a stalk and same as at Welton, Bunnies just appeared and dissapeared again. Not a single kill   The heavens then opened and we got drenched to the core. We sat in the club house had a can of pop and a bikkie then when the rain stopped we went back to the plinking range and as Riff tidied his boot out, I got some more bench rest firing in. I was just about to finish when a couple of woodies sat on some overhead lines some 56 yards away. The wind had dropped and the rain had stopped so I decided 3.5 mildots on the back of the head would bring them down and I really fancy sinking my nashers into a nice bit of tasty breast So I, took the shot I saw the feathers on the back of the head exlode as I heard a faint crack as the pellet hit bone and the woody opened its wings as it left the wire and glided down nose first and no control over where it was going to land. I walked down the plinking range and cut over the ditch at the back of the range only to find that the Woody was not on the ground I couldn't see it anywhere. Turns out it was probably in the very large hedgerow bushes as thats where they tend to fall from those lines.   So as it chucked it down again, we came home. It was a very good day all in all, and we covered 4 permissions! But despite not bringing any meat home, I had a good day and I'd just like to say "THANKS" buddy to Niel aka RiffRaff for such a good day out.   Phantom   Source: Different day and thanks Niel
