    Child’s shotgun

    I got it as I just fancied one, and at £195 I couldn’t say no

    Yeah, the cartridges aren’t cheep but he gets tired after 25 so shouldn’t be to bad for the moment I have found that top leaver is quite stiff and clunky, hopefully it’ll loosen up over time.

    @FLATTOP nice your stock looks in better condition than mine. Seems like a lot of gun for the money. Looking forward to giving it a go.

    I’ve heard that the 457 is going to be around the £6-700 for the bass model.

    @Balaur they’re £499 new and as he’ll probably grow out of it in 4-5 years so it’s a no brainier.

    It the boys birthday tomorrow and I’ve picked him up a new 28g kofs youth stock with 26in barrels. Other than some real nasty nails, seconded hand o/u youth stock 28g weren’t much less than a new one after having to either drive to collect or have it transferred. I also want it to be something he would take pride in owning. I also picked my self up a small present AYA #4, just because I liked it, and it wasn’t lots of money

    Just back from his lesson and he loved it, and shot really well https://youtu.be/grF2q2iKKcc

    Thanks for the reply’s, I’ve booked him in for a half hour lesson, see what he thinks. Then if he’s hooked (fingers crossed, love for him to be my shooting buddy) I’ll measure him up and have a look at guns. I like the idea of a semi auto. Cheers

    Thanks @bird can you get 20 bores to fit a child without it costing the earth, or will a standard one work?
  12. My son, soon to be 11 seems keen on shooting some clays. I was thinking of seeing if he could handle my 12 bore, but don’t want to put him off. If anyone has some experience/advice I’d love to hear it. Cheers Dave

    Saving the plums

    My parents have returned from their holiday, so the feeder has come down. Not that they like having the tree rats eat the fruit, but my mums a bit squeamish three mornings landed six squirrels and a skanky magpie that looked like it had been fighting the local cats, rather than leave it limping around with a busted wing, I put it out. Now, I know that after a head shot nerves keep firing, the last squirrel I hit with a shot between eye and ear was still “breathing“, never wanting anything to suffer and at the time not knowing that it was a good head shot, I gave a follow up head shot, still breathing! Three head shots before it stopped! The last two and the magpie, feeder will go back up at home now.

    Controlling the squirrels is slightly easier than bugs, I lost all my greengages last year to insects! had a couple more this morning before work.
