Well me and viz(Sean) went off to si,s this week end gone and as all ways the lad went out of his way to put us up and make sure we had a cracking week end ,
time was set to leave ours at 1 but ended setting off at just before 12 .
Got to Si,s just after 2ish unloaded the tank had a cuppa a bit of a chin wag then set off for some fish and chips WELL it would not be right
to go to Scarborough and NOT have fish and chips lol
Now i must say i had took the mick out of si earlier in the week as he had that cold bug that was going around but turned out i had it on the friday when at his so si got pay back on me lol
back to his another cuppa sorted the gear and the rifles out and the time was set for us to hit the paddocks (my fav perm of si,s )
loads of rabbits time was set for around 8 ,,,830pm
time was close so we loaded the tank up and off we set got to the perm and set our selfs away now this was the first time Sean had been down to si,s and his perms but i did tell him about the electric fences (after the last time he came across them on our perm lol
as i was feeling off i only walked one field and got two one at 40 and one at 42 laser,d with the nv range finder
i should say,d rifles were
Si,,fx impact .25 fac,,,scope and lamp
Sean fx stream line 177,,, scope and lamp
me hw100ks 177 photon nv and nv range finder
Now some of the perms had long grass and weeds so a few were lost in the long grass but ended up with 12 in the bag
Sean was having bother with his fx
one min it would be on the next off now he had had this rifle to bits as some one had been in side of it prier to him getting it
why o why do people think they have to go inside i rifle that is only three months old and a pcp at that i could understand if it was a spring rifle and had to be de,greased and re,greased any way ended up he ordered a new reg for it and sorted it
but then it turned out the pellets were clipping the mod as well so once back at si,s si set about sorting the mod out for him
Top shot on day one was
SI ,,8 top shot
and a good few lost in the grass food for mr fox
Up early cuppa then jumped into the car and off we went to the shooting show stopping off on the way for our breakfast full English
mug of coffee just the way to start the day
got to the show and i rang philpot up to see where he was 15mins away so we went in side and started to look around
Sean was taken aback with the n355 nv and what a unit this is iv not seen a nv scope that clear before
then the phone go,s and it was phil and Trish now for those of you that has not met them yet there one of the nicest couples you could meet and iv a lot of respect for them both .
any way i handed the hw97 177 blue over to them for phils mate we had a bit banter and a few laughs and off we went
Now what phil has forgotten about shot guns is more than most of us will ever know and you can tell this in the way he talks about them you just know he knows his stuff by the passion he has for them.
any way it was not nice walking around with a pocket full of money at the show but i did good only bought a hw 100 air cylinder am custom one for my hw100
some best fittings for my air bottle and three mods had a look at a few shot guns and air rifles but was taking with a little 410 shoty
£195 if i had my tickets id of bought it there and then
any way we had a good few hours there and off we went back to Si,s called into MacDonald.s for a bite to eat on the way back once back at si,s we sorted the gear out and set off back to the perms hit the big estate first and took out 7 from there then moved on to the paddocks again .
me and Sean blanked at this perm but si took out a good few but once again lost a few in the long grass
and seans rifle was playing up again turned out his scopes were fecked as well he has been well and truly stitched up on this rifle but its all sorted now i gave his a vantage sf to try and its spot on .
si was using the fx impact with the new photon on and you that use nv know if you shoot one then move to shoot another its hard to find the first one you shot even with a lamp lol.
any way we headed back to si,s and called in to a take away for some grub and called it a night .
up early again and off we went
this time with the shot guns what a day lol
and i mean lol
me and Sean found out that we are shit with shot guns and all we did was laugh all day long shot 50+ cartridges and only hit one pigeon
Si was off with his impact and left me and Sean to our selfs honest lads it looks easy but feck its not we laughed at each other and at our selfs at one point i thought Sean was going to wet him self he was laughing that much at his self .
even when they landed we missed them i was the one that got one in the end just as si was coming back and it was a nice head shot
even i was amazed at it mind i never got another lol and dont ask me to do it again .
any way by this time it was getting on and me and viz had to head back to our homes .
iv met some good lads on hear and yet to meet a few in person but si is like viz a brother from another mother to me
nothing i would not do for this lad
he made our week end as all ways
had a cracking week end and it was just what i needed after all the shit iv gone through in the last few weeks .
Once again my friend THANK YOU SO MUCH SI
until next time mate
