    No not yet mate Doesn’t seem to be many about now at the stables, seen one in the long grass and it bolted and seen a little scrapper. Will still keep popping up though Might have another stables after the summer? At the moment there is 70 horses in the fields. He said ring him later in the year My eyes popped out of my head like a cartoon character
  7. Had a little mooch last night around the stables for an hour or so. No soon as load the CZ I see my first target for the night, only been there 5 minutes. It caught sight of me and bounced off, I thought it would be well gone, but oh no. Popped my head around the side of the stable and there it was, sat perfectly up right no more than 20 yards away. I got my self positioned to shoot through the fence and then let the trigger finger go. Next thing thud, nice little head shot

    Thanks for the input I shoot both eyes open so might work out ok with a bit of luck Im definitely going to have to try the clay ground, been itching to start shooting shotgun for a while, so need to get my butt in gear. Then hopefully get some nice pigeon meat on the table

    Might sound weird but I shoot right handed both eyes open, the left being the dominant eye, works for me using rifles with scopes, with a good hit rate. In the field and on the range. Done it that way for years. Cant do this technique using iron sights so shoot left handed with irons, only from a bench with my mate spotting the first few rounds. So my logic is I will probably have to shoot left handed using a shotgun?? Going to go to a clay ground with a tutor and see what he suggests. might take some getting use to but just going to have to practice.

    Yeah the other month, only need the smallest strength lenses as I only struggle when looking at things really close up. Distance is no problem, only when I have my left eye shut. Optician said if he put a stronger one in for the right it would cause all sorts of imbalance. Also I’d end up looking like that bloke from Harry Potter with one big eye as the lense would be well thick

    Unfortunately U no glasses in the world will help me with that my right eye has had a blur since I was a kid. It never developed properly and my left eye takes all the strain and balanced my vision that way. Good advice all the same for someone who needs to try and train there right eye though
