  5. Hi everyone me and a few friends are thinking of going to Scotland next season for a few days at the geese, this will be my first time goose shooting we'd be coming over form Northern Ireland was looking into orkney island but its working out a full days travel so in order to shoot three days it will take a full week which some of the lads cant do, Do any of you's lads know any good guides for a bit of goose shooting maybe with an evening flight of duck and something to do during the day a bit of pigeon shooting or rough shooting?? Thanks in advance for any replies.
  6. On the market for a new rod and reel for river trout i'm looking for something light weight that'll give me good value out of small river trout on worm and spinner what you guys using? Thanks.
  7. thescruffyone, im the same when it comes to holding a gun right handed just feels weird i've been trying to shoot the shotgun from the right not as weird as a scope mounted rifle not sure if anything will come of it but as moxy says its brain training, i wonder if you patched off the left eye would it stop you from unconsciously trying to pull your left eye into the view of the scope and make things a bit more comfortable, at the end of the day i say it could be done with time and patience, but it just wouldn't be the same as what comes naturally to you.
  8. i'm right handed, left eye dominant, left footed and w*nk with left and right (at the same time) lol lol. like the look of that 77 and rapids daz 7. was looking at the rws lr20/25 were you screw the bolt off youself and change it over to the left side in a matter of seconds, anyone used this air rife and how do they rate it??
